FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — The Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series and the Battle of the Eastern All Star Tour (BEAST) will unite to form a combined late model series.
“It’s a big day for all of us involved,” said Carolina Clash President and founder Larry Lee. “This is something we have worked on for quite some time and we believe it will be a huge benefit to the racers in our area.”
The newly unified Carolina Clash series was established as a result of extensive research and consideration of how to utilize the Hoosier tire, along with the Carolina Clash mainstay American Racer.
The new tire rule for the series will allow for both the Hoosier and American Racer tire to be used. Racers will be able to race the Hoosier HTS SPEC 1250, HTS SPEC 1350 and HTS SPEC 1600. The American Racer tires will be the JSR SPEC 12, JSR SPEC 48 and JSR SPEC 56.
“This is not only going to be big for the teams of the Clash and the BEAST, but it will be huge for the fans,” said Cherokee Speedway promoter Lennie Buff. “I think now the tracks will be able to draw drivers from both tire brands to make some great racing for the fans.”
The Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series is one of the most established and recognized regional racing series in the country. It will embark on its 14th season in 2013.
