Bojangles to Sponsor Limited Late Model Division at Southern National's Thanksgiving All-Star Cl
LUCAMA, NC - Turkey may be on the menu for Thanksgiving dinner but Southern National Motorsports Park's Limited Late Model all-stars will be favoring Bojangles' southern fried chicken. Bojangles has signed on as the title sponsor of the 75-lap Limited Late Model feature race which will take place on the November 28th at the 4/10-mile oval in Lucama, North Carolina. The Bojangles Limited Late Model feature will pay $1,500 to win and, like the Halloween Spooktacular back in October, the race will be a scuff tire race. “We're excited to have Bojangles' come along and sponsor this event,” Southern National Motorsports Park promoter John Vick said. “Bojangles' sponsoring this race is great for the drivers in the Limited Late Model division and we obviously hope we can work with Bojangles' in 2016 to make Southern National Motorsports Park bigger and better than ever.” Bojangles' has been a supporter of racing in the Carolinas for many years. Locally, they sponsor the Limited Late Model driven by Alliance, North Carolina veteran racer Rusty Daniels and, on a larger scale, Bojangles is the title sponsor of NASCAR's Labor Day classic, the Bojangles' Southern 500 in Darlington, South Carolina. The Limited Late Model division is a fan favorite division which features some of the best of the always exciting racing Southern National Motorsports Park has to offer. Last year, Tony Grady scored the victory in the Bojangles Limited Late Model feature in the Thanksgiving All-Star Classic. This year, a large field of cars is again expected for the event. The Bojangles' Limited Late Model race will be part of the three day Thanksgiving All-Star Classic which will also feature racing for the Late Model Stock Cars, Super Late Models, Southern Lightning Modifieds, Mini-Stock Mayhem, Street Stocks, Chargers, U-CARs, Legends and Bandoleros.

Southern National Motorsports Park Hosting Toys for Tots Drive LUCAMA, NC - Southern National Motorsports Park is kicking off the holidays on Sunday, November 29th with a Toys for Tots drive during the Thanksgiving All-Star Classic. Fans are encouraged to bring unwrapped toys to the race which would go to children in the area who are less fortunate. As an incentive, Southern National Motorsports Park is offering a $5 off adult general admission tickets for anyone who brings an unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots. “Toys for Tots is a great organization helping to bring toys to kids at Christmas,” Southern National Motorsports Park promoter John Vick said. “It's a great way to close a season and kick off the holiday season and we hope all our fans and even our racers participate.” Toys for Tots is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve which distributes toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them Christmas gifts. The program was founded in 1947 by Major Bill Hendricks, a Marine Corps reservist. For more information about the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, visit their website at http://www.toysfortots.org/. Southern National Motorsports Park to Host Blood Drive on November 28th LUCAMA, NC – Southern National Motorsports Park will be hosting a blood drive for the American Red Cross on Saturday, November 28th from 3pm to 7pm. The blood drive will take place during the Thanksgiving All-Star Classic and Southern National Motorsports Park is encouraging drivers and fans to participate. All presenting donors will receive a Red Cross mixing spoon and celebrity chef recipe set (while supplies last) as part of the American Red Cross' efforts to get people to donate blood during the holiday season. “The holiday season is a time of shortage of blood for the Red Cross,” Southern National Motorsports Park track promoter John Vick said. “We want to kick off the holiday season by encouraging all our drivers and all our fans at the track to participate in the blood drive and give the gift of life to others.” Every eight minutes, the American Red Cross responds to an emergency and, according to the Red Cross, one blood donation can save up to three lives.
