The level of carnage that oval produces is totally unacceptable for a scratchbuilt class, in my opinion.

I know what you mean runing Dirt Late models. I just figured since the stock car are a bit slower it wouldn't be quite as bad. But still looking forward to the race. I'm sure John, Pablo, and Greg will come to

Thanks to all the racers who came out and supported this race, especially the South Alabama crew as they traveled quite a distance to attend.

Special thanks to Shirley Harrington for race directing and Dallas Jackson and Howard Harris for all their help in making this race happen.

The results are below. I'll be posting pictures from the race over the next couple of days.
