New Late Model Event Coming to Cordele
Officials at Watermelon Capital Speedway announced today a huge weekend of racing will be coming to Crisp Motorsports Park on March 26th and 27th. With the highly anticipated CRA SpeedFest 2021 being postponed earlier in the year, it seems only fitting that track owner Wayne Lyle would bounce back in such a big way. The Southern Super Series, presented by Sunoco, will host the Super Late Model contingent for a 150 Lap, $10,000 to win event in Race #2 on the 2021 SSS schedule. In addition, Champion Racing Association will be on the card with the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour in a $4,000 to win non-points special Pro Late Model event. Both of these races will run on Saturday, March 27th, along with several support division races, making for a huge day of racing.
“While we were extremely disappointed with the fate of this year’s CRA SpeedFest 2021, we’re excited to come back with the Georgia Spring Nationals in March. We have been discussing a second Southern Super Series date for a couple of years, and the time seemed right”, stated track GM Ben Sumner. “And to have CRA bring their JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour in for the Pro Late Model portion makes for a big day of racing that fans will not want to miss”.
The Super Late Model portion of the event will be tied in to the Georgia Summer Nationals, when the SSS returns on August 14th. PFC Brakes will be sponsoring a $2,000 cash bonus, which will be paid to the driver with best 2 race average finish. Last August, eventual Series Champion Stephen Nasse found Victory Lane in the Summer Nationals. SSS Director Tim Bryant shared the enthusiasm. “ It’s the biggest March in Series history, that’s for sure” stated Bryant. “ Opening with The Rattler 250 at South Alabama Speedway, and then heading to Cordele 2 weeks later gets us off to a fantastic start to the 2021 season. Plus, having our event paired up with the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour makes perfect sense. Our officials work well together so we can help each other make the events as seamless as possible.”
“We always enjoy coming south to race at Crisp Motorsports Park,” remarked Glenn Luckett, Managing Partner with CRA. “Everyone hated that CRA SpeedFest 2021 didn’t get to happen, so this gives everyone an opportunity to get to race their again in 2021. We always enjoy working with everyone at Crisp Motorsports Park and working with Tim Bryant and everyone at the Southern Super Series, this is going to be a great event for the racers and the fans!”
