Elm City, North Carolina – After taking off nearly two months, the sophomore season of the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series swings back into action November 8th through 10th at the 3/8ths mile County Line Raceway located in Elm City, North Carolina. The 4th Annual “Race for the Kids” which benefits the Victory Junction Camp will host the ULTIMATE Super Late Models for a 50-lap feature that will pay a season-high $10,000 to the winner. County Line Raceway is billing the event as the largest in its 24 year history. “After the fantastic support we got from racers and fans when the ULTIMATE Series visited back in May, adding them to our signature event was pretty much a no-brainer. We are a Saturday night track and that event was run on a Friday and the place was packed. So we fully expect to break our previous attendance record. In fact we expect to shatter it. Our entire staff is really excited about this race. We know this will be the biggest race that we have ever had at County Line.” said County Line Raceway PR Director Steve Summerlin.
The ULTIMATE Series staff is equally excited about the event. “County Line has some of the best fans that we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. They treated us so well back in May. We had the opportunity to meet so many of them and it was great to hear how enthused they were about having the ULTIMATE Series there. So we were very happy when we were asked to be a part of such a great event. The folks at County Line – Steve, James, Brenda and the entire staff have done such a great job with this event. They have worked really hard to get sponsors and add some perks for the drivers that are going to be there. Those prizes that the Speedway Barbeque folks are doing are by far some of the coolest “contingency” awards I have ever seen. We all know it costs money to get to the racetrack. A lot of the time we don’t consider how much we spend just on food, so to have them come along and offer something like this, well it just helps those racers get there. And there are so many other great folks that have stepped up to make this event work. We are just proud to be involved with it.” said ULTIMATE Series Director Kelley Carlton.
The event will kick off on Thursday, November 8th with open practice in all divisions. Then on Friday, November 9th racing action gets underway with ULTIMATE Series qualifying presented by Owens Construction, Open Wheel Modified qualifying presented by Three Aces Speed Shop, ULTIMATE Series heat races presented by S.T. Wooten Corporation along with Open Wheel Modified heats. Also on Friday the Pure Stock 4s and Pure Stock V8s will run feature events. Saturday, November 10th will be Race for the Kids Championship Day beginning with last chance qualifier races in ULTIMATE Super Late Models and the Open Wheel Modifieds. ULTIMATE Super Late Model entrants that start the last chance qualifiers but fail to transfer will receive $150 tow money. Championship Day will conclude with feature events for the U.S. Legends Dirt Modifieds, Super Stock 4s, the $5200 to win Open Wheel Modifieds and the $10,000 to win ULTIMATE Super Late Models. At the conclusion of the racing action County Line will also host a winner-take-all Demolition Derby.
In addition to all of the racing action there are a bevy of things for fans to enjoy and take in at County Line this weekend.
