A total of 13 states will be represented during the ASA Southern Super Series doubleheader finale weekend at Five Flags Speedway (FL). Drivers from both the west coast and east coast will flock to Pensacola, Florida for a pair of 100-lap races that will take place on Friday and Saturday. In all, some 31 entries will be taking part in the weekend.
It will be a busy weekend at Five Flags Speedway with Super Late Models running on both Friday and Saturday Night. The Crown Stock Championship race will also run on Friday Night, while Saturday’s card includes the Pro Late Model Championship, plus the Modified of Mayhem Tour.
Earlier this season Jermey Doss and Casey Roderick claimed the first two Southern Super Series / Blizzard Series events at Five Flags, however the Florida drivers are looking to keep the trophies in the sunshine state this weekend.
Stephen Nasse and Jake Finch lead the Florida contingent that includes Jett Noland, Michael Hinde, Hunter Robbins, Daniel Webster, Michael Atwell, Gavin Graham and Tony Elrod.
Nasse has run well the last few times out and is always strong on Blizzard finale weekend. A year ago, it was Stephen Nasse who won the final Southern Super Series race of the season at Five Flags
Robbins is the defending Southern Super Series champion looking to finish off the 2023 season with a statement. Atwell will be driving for the Davidson Motorsports team in the finale.
Jesse Love, winner of the Glass City 200 will be looking for back-to-back Super Late Model wins after getting the job done in Toledo, Ohio. The most recent winner on the ASA STARS National Tour will head to Pensacola for the two races.
Jeremy Doss is on his own Island as he is seeking to clinch the Blizzard title. He will have two races where he will need to maximize his points to potentially become the first California driver to win the Super Late Model track title.
Kole Raz will easily win the long-haul award as he’s making the trip from the Pacific Northwest. His team, Rupinski Racing, is making the long drive from Lake Oswego, Oregon to run the final weekend at Five Flags. It’s a 2700-mile trip that will take over 40 hours by road.
Billy VanMeter is another name to keep an eye on. The Indianapolis, Indiana driver has made two starts this season at Five Flags Speedway and has improved a total of 29 spots in those races compared to his qualifying runs.
All of these drivers and several more will be looking to capture the $10,000 victory share on Friday, September 22nd in the American Welding Society 100. Another $10,000 will be on the line on Saturday, September 23rd in the Deep South Cranes 100.
While the regular season comes to an end this weekend the series looks forward to the All American 400 on November 5th. The non-points event for the ASA Southern Super Series will be the championship round for the ASA STARS National Tour.
