More Than 30 Super Late Models Headed to North WilkesboroScott Menlen
Special from Racing America – This weekend, it will be time for Super Late Models to take center stage at North Wilkesboro Speedway’s Racetrack Revival. Co-sanctioned by the ARCA/CRA Super Series and Southern Super Series, more than 30 Super Late Model competitors are headed to historic North Wilkesboro on Friday and Saturday, August 12-13.
As of Monday, 31 Super Late Model competitors were entered for the event, marking the first time Super Late Models have raced at the track in over a decade. Some of the most recognizable names in Late Model racing will be taking part in the historic event.
Championship contenders from both Super Late Model sanctioning bodies will be taking part in the Racetrack Revival in their ongoing title quests. Drivers such as Bubba Pollard, Hunter Robbins, Stephen Nasse and Jett Noland will be representing the Southern Super Series, while the likes of Eddie and Billy Van Meter and Albert Francis will carry the banner for the ARCA/CRA Super Series.
Sammy Smith took part in an open practice at North Wilkesboro one week ago, and will be part of this weekend’s Super Late Model festivities. Smith won the Redbud 400 at Anderson Speedway earlier this year, as well as last year’s Winchester 400.
Casey Roderick will be another name to watch this weekend. The former All American 400 winner won with the ARCA/CRA Super Series at Salem Speedway in April.
There will be a handful of North Carolina drivers hoping to keep the $15,000 in the home state. Justin Crider, Tyler Church, Lee Tissot, Carson Kvapil and Tyler Tanner will all be part of this weekend’s field.
Nearly a dozen drivers will make the trip from Florida for the Racetrack Revival. Some of the Floridians not already mentioned include Jared Irvan, Daniel Dye, Jake Finch and Michael Hinde
2021 USAC National Midget champion Buddy Kofoid has been increasing his pavement racing repertoire over the past year. He is also entered for the Super Late Model portion of the Racetrack Revival.
Two-time Snowball Derby winner Augie Grill is also on the entry list. He scored a top-five finish with the Southern Super Series at Montgomery, and finished ninth in the last Super Late Model race held at North Wilkesboro back in 2011.
A full list of Super Late Model entries can be viewed below.
Super Late Model teams will practice, qualify and take part in 10-lap heat races on Friday, August 12. This will set the field for their 75-lap feature on Saturday, August 13, with the winner pocketing $15,000.
Event tickets are available at racetrackrevival.com for fans planning to make the pilgrimage to North Wilkesboro Speedway for the event. However, we understand most fans won’t be able to attend all of the racing throughout the month of August in person.
Super Late Model competitors will be accompanied by the Vores Compact Touring Series, with nearly 30 entries filed for that division. The Compacts will race for 50 laps on both Friday and Saturday night.
Through a partnership between XR Events and Racing America, fans unable to attend the Racetrack Revival will be able to watch each day of racing live on Racing America via a la carte pay-per-view options.
