Montgomery, Ala. — 2016 was a banner year for the “Show me the Money” Pro Late Model division at Montgomery Motor Speedway (AL). With over 55 competitors from nine different states, the one-track series caught the attention of many in the racing world. Big car counts and some of the best racing in the country were the highlight of the Pro Late Model events.
With four wins and five top-five finishes, Lawrenceville, Georgia’s Casey Roderick piloting the Ronnie Sanders / Pit Boxes Inc. No. 18 took home the hardware which included a custom champions ring and the big check for winning the 2016 “Show me the Money” points battle.
In second place with one win and five top-five finishes was No. 30 Bobby Knox Jr. Third with one win and four top-five finishes was Justin South. Mixed luck was the theme for South in 2016 but he looks to 2017 with a fresh outlook. Rounding out the top five in points was Augie Grill with two wins and three top-five finishes.
The 2017 schedule has seven events starting with the R.S. Trucking Spring Explosion and finishing with the Alabama 200 “Hunt for the Bear,” now the biggest Pro Late Model event in the southeast. The first six races will be a minimum of 100 laps / four-tire events with $4,000 going to the winner. The Alabama 200 will be an eight-tire race with controlled pit stops paying $6,000 to win.
