The Pro Late Model doubleheader scheduled for this Friday at Five Flags Speedway (FL) and Saturday at Montgomery Motor Speedway (AL) has been re-scheduled for next weekend, June 14 and 15 due to a poor weather forecast.
“With the rain chances hovering between 80% and 100% for the weekend, we’re taking the safest odds and going ahead with a rescheduled date next weekend,” stated Five Flags General Manager Tim Bryant. “While we realize the ever so slight chance is that the forecast will change, both Stan Narrison and myself agree that we don’t want to chance our racers going up and down the road for nothing.”
This is the first time these two tracks are partnering on a Pro Late Model doubleheader. Insinger Performance, the southern Sunoco distributor, sweetened the pot by adding in some bonus money.
“Tim and I have been wanting to do this doubleheader thing for a while now, and we’re determined to pull it off,” stated Montgomery Motor Speedway GM Stan Narrison. “With each race paying $4,000 to win, it makes for a fairly nice weekend potentially. Add in the $500 Insinger Bonus, and the incentive is even better. And speaking of doubling down, the two tracks will be matching the bonus money, meaning the driver with the best two-night average finish will pick up an extra $1,000.”
The June 14 event at Five Flags will once again be supported by Sportsman and Pure Stock Division racing, along with their Annual Kids Bike Races. The Montgomery Show Me the Money Series support divisions will be announced by the end of the week.
