LUCAMA, NC – Southern National Motorsports Park will be hosting a free practice session for all NASCAR and INEX licensed drivers and teams on Saturday. Saturday’s practice session is in advance of Southern National Motorsports Park’s regular season opener, dubbed the “Spring BreakOut”, which will be held on April 11th. The practice session, free for drivers to run and fans to attend, will be the first opportunity many drivers have had to hit the track this season. “We’re excited to give the drivers and teams a chance to shake their cars down without having to spend a bunch of money to do so,” said track promoter Langley Austin. “We all know that the drivers and teams will spend everything they can to put on a show for the fans and we’re giving back to them this weekend by giving them a chance to practice for free.” For drivers and teams, NASCAR licenses will be available to get this weekend at the back sign-in gate. Anyone wishing to attend practice from the infield without a NASCAR license can do so for $20 per person. For the fans this will be a good chance to come out and see some of the cars that will be competing on a regular basis this season as they get ready for Spring BreakOut. Pit gates will open at 11am and cars will be on track from 12pm-5pm on Saturday. The open practice is free for fans to watch from the trackside parking area.

Buy Two Tires, Get Two Free at Southern National Motorsports Park LUCAMA, NC - Southern National Motorsports Park’s commitment to cutting cost has continued with the implementation of a new tire program in which drivers can get four tires for the price of two for the season opening race, the Spring BreakOut. Thanks to the commitments of Steve Howell and Howell Racing Products, drivers can now purchase two tires and get two tires for free. The “buy two, get two free” program is just the latest in a series of announcements from Southern National Motorsports Park’s new promoter, Langley Austin, that cuts costs. “I hate to keep using the word exciting but what we have going on over here at Southern National is exciting," said track promoter Langley Austin. "With Steve Howell stepping up to offer this tire deal it’s just another thing for our drivers and in turn our fans to get excited about.” "We will run a two tire program this season but we wanted the teams to have an opportunity to run on their own tires all season if they planned to run the full season. This makes it perfect because they can start on four new but still only pay for two tires." Howell Racing Products, a longtime supporter of Southern National Motorsports Park, has stepped up to support the new program. Howell also provides parts at all of the regular season races. “We couldn’t offer this without the help of Howell Racing Products who is a giant supporter of Southern National,” said Austin. “Steve’s dedication to racing and helping racers in this region is unmatched and we’re proud to have him providing parts at all of our races.” The 2015 regular season will get started at Southern National Motorsports Park, located off Newsome Mill Road in Lucama, North Carolina, on April 11th with the Spring BreakOut. The Spring BreakOut features twin races for the retooled Late Model division as well as racing for the Charger, U-CAR, Legends and Bandolero divisions.
