ASHEBORO, N.C. – PRA Tours (Prestoria Race Alliance) is expanding with the creation of a super late model tour.
The newly formed super late model tour will host seven events in its inaugural season. The tour will travel to several events with the Southern Modified Racing Series, the 602 Modifieds and 602 Super Limiteds, all of which are owned by PRA Tours. The series will also compete at two major events, the North-South Shootout and the Thanksgiving Classic.
“We are excited to host the super late models and are looking forward to the addition and added value it brings to the race fans. I have spoken with many teams and liaisons in the industry over the past few months leading me to embrace the super late models,” said Renee Hackett, promoter of PRA Tours.
The tour will make its debut on April 13 at Orange County Speedway in Rougemont, N.C., followed by a stop at Caraway Speedway on May 11.
After a month off, the tour will return to action on July 20 at Southern National Motorsports Park in Kenly, N.C. After going dark during the month of August, the tour will return to action at Orange County Speedway on Sept. 14.
Hickory (N.C.) Motor Speedway will play host to the series on Oct. 14 before the tour takes part in the annual North-South Shootout on Nov. 7-9. The North-South Shootout is typically held at Concord (N.C.) Speedway.
The series will conclude its inaugural season during Thanksgiving Classic on Dec. 1 at Southern National Motorsports Park.
Series officials indicated that rules for the series will be similar to that of other major super late model tours, including the ARCA/CRA Super Series, Southern Super Series and CARS Tour.
The creation of the PRA Tours super late model class comes a few weeks after the Pro All Stars Series announced they would not sanction the PASS South division in 2019. PASS only plans to sanction a handful of Southern-based events this year.
PRA Tours owns several touring divisions, including the Southern Modified Racing Series, 602 Modified Tour, 602 Super Limiteds and SouthEast Limited Late Model Series. The organization also sanctions racing at Caraway Speedway in Asheboro, N.C.
