Gresham Forms New Touring Series


JEFFERSON, Ga. – Gresham Motorsports Park has partnered with four other track to form a new touring late-model series, the Southern Super Series.

The new series will enable teams to race within the region at premier race facilities for good race purses and be able to save money by not having to travel long distances for the opportunity to race.

An alliance has been created between Gresham Motorsports Park, Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Fla., Mobile Int’l Speedway in Irvington, Ala., Montgomery (Ala.) Motor Speedway and Nashville (Tenn.) Fairgrounds Speedway to form a series for super late models.

The Southern Super Series will consist of 15 total races at these five tracks. The majority of the races will be regular event races, but some of the most prestigious races held by these tracks will be a part of the Southern Super Series including, The World Crown (Gresham), The All-American 400 (Nashville) and the Alabama 200 (Montgomery).

The news of fresh competition is excitement enough, but the winner of the Southern Super Series Championship will receive a check of $10,000 for first place! Details of the other finishing positions and all other details of the Southern Super Series will be released soon.

“The Southern Super Series will bring much excitement to fans and competitors during the 2013 season,” said Dan Elliott, general manager of Gresham Motorsports Park. “I want to thank all of the people involved with the race tracks that will be a part of this series for all of their hard work and dedication. This is the first real effort that tracks have made in years to come together for something as important as this. The Super Late Models have long been the premier racing division in the South.”

Gresham Motorsports Park will have all other local divisions racing in addition to the Southern Super Series race events, with the exception to the World Crown (GMP will only be running Super Late Models, Trucks and Outlaw Late Models).

GMP has scheduled five races for 2013, two Pro Late Model events and three Super Late Model events. The tentative 2013 race schedule has been posted on the GMP website.
