LUCAMA, NC - A stout combination of championship drivers and championship hopefuls have pre-entered for the Limited Late Model portion of Saturday's Halloween Spooktacular at Southern National Motorsports Park.
18 drivers have already entered the race. That list includes Wake County Speedway champion Alex Fleming, former Southern National Motorsports Park champions Clay Jones and Haley Moody, former Bowman Gray Stadium champion Mack Little and regional regulars such as Bradley McCaskill, Zachary Marks, Zach Henshaw, Rusty Daniels and Ronald Renfrow.
Alex Fleming and Clay Jones are both making their first Southern National starts of the season. Jones has been competing in the Championship Auto Racing Series (CARS) Super Late Model Tour and Fleming won the track championship at Wake County Speedway in Raleigh, North Carolina. Haley Moody is making her second Southern National start of the season and looking for her first 2015 win after scoring three wins in 2014.
Bradley McCaskill has one win and four second place finishes at Southern National in 2015 and is a favorite to win, but Rusty Daniels could be a threat to him. Daniels also has a Southern National win this season.
The scuff-tire Limited Late Model race isn't the only on-track attraction for race fans on Saturday. In all, five divisions will be racing. The U-CAR, Legends and Bandolero divisions will all feature large fields and the Powder Puff race has already generated interest with the racing debut of Ashlyn McCaskill, daughter of four-time track champion Deac McCaskill.
The Halloween Spooktacular won't just be about racing. The weekend will provide plenty of fun for the entire family. Following Friday night's open practice, Southern National Motosports Park will host a haunted house exhibit from 6pm-9pm. The haunted house will also be open on Saturday from 12pm-3pm. Before the race, kids will be able to ride in the Red Rock monster truck free of charge from 12:30pm-3pm. There will also be a costume contest before the race and free candy during a truck-or-treat during pre-race ceremonies.
Gates open at 12:30pm for Saturday's Halloween Spooktacular, qualifying will commence at 12:45pm, pre-race ceremonies start at 2:30 and the green flag flies at 2:45.
