PENSACOLA, Fla. – The Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco schedule features 11 races, with four races slated to pay $10,000 or more to the winner.

The 11-race schedule for the Southern Super Series will begin with the 42nd annual Rattler 250 at South Alabama Speedway in Opp, Ala., on Sunday, March 18 and conclude with a new event, the Mobile 300, at Mobile (Ala.) Int’l Speedway on Sunday, Oct. 28.

The four races to pay $10,000 or more include the Rattler 250 and the Mobile 300. Also included in that mix with be the Short Track U.S. Nationals at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway on Sunday, May 20 and the combination event with the CARS Super Late Model Tour at Anderson (S.C.) Motor Speedway on Saturday, June 9.

In all, the series will visit eight different race tracks in six different states.

“In assembling the 2018 schedule for the Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco, it was our aim to provide races at a variety of tracks spread across the calendar,” said Tim Bryant, promoter of the SSS. “We wanted our races to be spaced apart, so that the aggressive teams could participate in all the races while still being allowed to run with any of the other sanctioning bodies we work so well with. With increased purses at multiple events and our commitment to a year-end points fund, plus other exciting news coming together, we’re already anxious to get to Opp, Alabama for the Rattler 250 to get things started.”

The deep south super late model series will also visit the Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville in Tennessee on Saturday, April 7, Montgomery (Ala.) Motor Speedway on Saturday, June 30 and Watermelon Capital Speedway in Cordele, Ga., on Saturday, Aug. 25.

The only track that will host more than one event will be Pensacola’s Five Flags Speedway. The Southern Super Series will stop at the track in the Panhandle of Florida on four occasions. Three stops will occur on Friday nights, on April 27, June 22 and July 20. The final stop of the year will be a Saturday night show at Five Flags Speedway on Sept. 22.
