The $30,000 to Win Carolina Crown set for March!
Largest in South Carolina history - Belmont, NC. – 11-26-12
The 2nd Annual Carolina Crown is set for 3 exciting days and back by popular demand on March 28th, 29th & 30th. The inaugural event had 5 different leaders and 15 different lead changes and as the checkered flag dropped on Lap 75 it was Scott Autry taking home the $20,000 pay day, his biggest career victory. Autry's win became one of the biggest cinderella stories in the history of Dirt Late Model racing.
The 2nd Annual Carolina Crown will have some added features offering the fans and competitors yet another great experience at the Lancaster Speedway in South Carolina. The Super Late Model main event will be reduced to 60 total laps, with a mandatory caution with 10 to go on lap 50, creating the same 10 lap shootout to the checkers that fans got to witness in last years event. "Last year the 10 to go shootout was a bit of a gamble, but it worked out perfectly, no one go tangled up and it offered some great side by side action to the finish, so I saw no reason not to do it again" Said Cody Sommer, Carolina Crown's race promoter.
In an effort to create fair competition, the Carolina Crown will also be featuring the FAST DASH, where the top 6 cars from heat races on Friday will line up to race for their starting positions in the 60 Lap main event on Saturday for $30,000. "I hear a lot of drivers upset about inverts at other series' and events and I wanted to give them something that can help prevent that anger. The FAST DASH, eliminates the fear of drawing a bad pill and being forced to start further back than possibly deserved. Now they will be able to race 6 hard laps to figure out where they will start the main event" Said Sommer. "The way it should be"
In addition to Super Late Models, The Carolina Crown will be hosting 6 different divisions throughout the weekend. Friday night Crate Late Models will race for $1,500 to Win with Pure Streets and Ucars. Saturday night Open Wheel Modifieds will race for $1,500 to Win with Super Streets and Crate Sportsman. Of Course, Super Late Models will be competing on both Friday and Saturday nights. Thursday offers an open rotating practice for all 6 divisions which is not mandatory, but offers competitors a day dedicated to tuning their race cars for the weekend. "Last year I had a lot of competitors that wanted to have a practice day leading up to the event. To me there is no better way to do that than on Thursday leading up to the weekend. This may help some of those further traveling competitors that may have never seen Lancaster Speedway before" Said Sommer.
The tentative event schedule with more details is posted in the Schedule of Events section on the website.
