The Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series will race Saturday, May 26 at Lake View Motor Speedway, while the ULTIMATE Super Late Models continue their busy month of May on Sunday, May 27 at Cherokee Speedway. Thanks to a bonus opportunity on the line between the two races, the weekend could be a very lucrative one for racers.

Saturday’s race at Lake View will pay $5,000 to win, while Sunday’s race at Cherokee is offering $7,500 to the winner. Furthermore, the driver who scores the best average finish between the two races will earn a $2,500 bonus. Combine those three payouts, and it’s possible for a driver to win $15,000 should they take the checkered flag on both Saturday and Sunday.
With the tracks just three hours apart, many teams will likely take advantage of the opportunity to compete twice in one weekend over the holiday. All of those teams will have the shot at the $2,500 bonus to add to their weekend winnings.
For the Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series, Saturday’s race will be the fifth of the season. Jeff Smith currently leads the season standings ahead of Michael Brown and Anthony Sanders. The series has produced four winners in four races, with Ben Watkins, Daulton Wilson, Ross Bailes and Brett Hamm earning trips to victory lane.
The ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series has proven just as competitive during its 2021 season. Anthony Sanders leads that points chase, ahead of rookie Cla Knight and Jeff Smith. While Brandon Overton swept a Virginia doubleheader for the series two weeks ago at Natural Bridge Speedway and Virginia Motor Speedway, ULTIMATE entered that weekend with five different winners in five races. Overton, Sanders, Knight, Dustin Mitchell and three-time series champion Zack Mitchell have all been to ULTIMATE victory lane in 2021.
