LUCAMA, NC – Limited Late Model racing will be the highlight of the Halloween Spooktacular at Southern National Motorsports Park on Saturday afternoon with a strong field of over 20 cars chasing victory and the possibility of winning $2,700.
The Limited Late Model field consists of championship drivers, old and new, as well as racers who find themselves in contention for race wins. Limited Late Model racing isn’t the only thing on the card for Saturday. A strong field of U-CARs, Legends cars and Bandoleros are all set to converge on the 4/10-mile oval in Lucama, North Carolina and a 10 lap all-female Powder Puff Shootout will leave plenty of people with a lifetime of memories.
Clay Jones Sets Sights on Victory
Goldsboro, North Carolina’s Clay Jones has not been as active on the Limited Late Model scene this season as he has been in the past. The veteran racer has been focusing on Super Late Model racing, but, when he has raced in his blue and black no. 15 car, he’s every bit the threat he has always been. Jones has recorded victories this season at Wake County Speedway in Raleigh, North Carolina and at Carteret County Speedway in Swansboro, North Carolina. Now, in his first Southern National appearance of the year in a Late Model, he expects to bring home a win.
Moody Getting Back on Track
2014 Southern National Motorsports Park Limited Late Model racer Haley Moody has not been able to duplicate the success she had one year ago. Last year, she scored three wins. This year, the 20-year-old from Kinston North Carolina has only two top-five finishes. Despite having enjoyed tremendous success at Southern National Motorsports Park, Halloween Spooktacular will be Moody’s second Southern National appearance of 2015. Last year, she finished third in the Halloween Spooktacular. This year, she believes she is willing and able to win.
Wertz Hoping to Make a Mark
Two-time Langley Speedway track champion and popular veteran Mark Wertz is one of the more than 20 drivers who will be competing on Saturday. Wertz is making his first Southern National appearance since the 2013 Thanksgiving All-Star Classic and he comes in with momentum on his side after snapping a five year winless streak earlier this year out at Langley Speedway in Hampton, Virginia.
