New Late Model Series Announced for the Carolinas

Statesville, NC — The Carolina Pro Late Model Series today announced its inaugural season with nine events planned at three premier southern short tracks.

The series “Built by Racers for Racers” provides Late Model teams with a flexible and affordable rules package, allowing teams to select from a 602, 603, or 604 crate engine. In order to enable such a flexible engine package, the series will enforce a configurable rules system that adjusts overall car weight and percentages to equalize the field. The innovative rules package is designed to reverse a trend that has seen car counts dwindle to below 10 in many sub classes of Late Model racing.

In addition to its flexible rules, the Carolina Pro Late Model Series restricts the number of new tires that can be purchased for each event, another measure to limit the cost of racing, making it possible for “working class racers” to have a place to race.

“The Carolina Pro Late Model Series is a series built by racers for racers. We are a series built for the budget racer. Built around the everyday racer who works all week and still loves to race on the weekend,” stated series owner and promoter Keith Graham.

For its inaugural season, the Carolina Pro Late Model Series has nine scheduled events and will be visiting Hickory Motor Speedway, Dillon Motor Speedway, and Orange County Speedway. The season will kick off at Dillon on March 21, 2020 with a 100-lap feature event.

“We would like to thank these tracks because without them the opportunity to grow this series into a premier series of the Carolina’s would not be possible,” Graham stated.
