Five Flags Speedway officials announced over the weekend, in conjunction with the new management of Mobile International Speedway, three dates on the 2018 racing schedule that will comprise the Gulf Coast Triple Doubles for Pro Late Models.
“We’re very excited to team up with the folks at Mobile to present racers with these three big race weekends on the Gulf Coast,” said Five Flags Speedway Promoter Tim Bryant. “The Gulf Coast Triple Doubles will also give race fans in the region a great opportunity to plan out a trio of action-packed weekends during the summer months.”
The three doubleheader weekends will consist of 100-lap races on Friday nights at Five Flags, then move 80 miles west to Mobile for the same event on Saturday night. Each night will pay $3,000 to the winner and additionally, there will be $500 in Gulf Coast Bonus Bucks paid to the driver with the best two-night average finish.
The first of the three doubleheaders will be on March 30 & 31, while the second race will be on July 6 and 7. The third and final round of the Gulf Coast Triple Doubles will be held on August 17 & 18.
