Montgomery Motor Speedway has released their 2021 Show Me The Money Pro Late Model Series schedule. Now in its 11th season, the Show Me The Money Series has become one of the premier local Pro Late Model classes in the country.
The 2021 edition of the Show Me The Money Series will feature seven races, the most the Alabama half-mile has hosted since eight races were contested in 2016. For the third straight year, the series kicks off with the biggest race of them all, the Alabama 200 on March 6. Jake Garcia earned the biggest win of his young career in last year’s race after passing Perry Patino with eight laps to go.
Pro Late Models return to Montgomery on May 1 for the Spring Explosion 100, a race that was canceled by COVID-19 last year. June 19th will feature Twin 50-lap races, which haven’t been done in the Show Me The Money Series since 2016. Justin South and Casey Roderick won the twin races on that night five years ago.
The Show Me The Money Series picks back up on July 31 with the Saturday of Speed 125. This event has become one of the bigger series races, just behind the Alabama 200. Garcia won last year’s race after a late battle with the likes of Jett Noland and Jackson Boone. Casey Roderick is also a former winner of the Saturday of Speed.
The drivers will get about two months off before returning to Montgomery for the Fall Brawl 100 on September 25. For the second straight year, the Show Me The Money Series will end the season with the Alabama State Championship on November 6.
Last year’s Show Me The Money Series season saw five races contested, all of which were won by Christopher Tullis and Jake Garcia. Tullis won the title over his fellow Georgia counterpart by just 12 points, with Garcia’s absence from a race on September 26 proving to be the deciding factor.
The track has also set other dates for the 2021 season, highlighted by the Southern Super Series Rumble By The River 125 on June 5 as part of a Gulf Coast doubleheader for the series. The Modifieds of Mayhem will make three appearances at their home track on March 6, July 31 and November 6. Jeff Letson won two Modified races at the half-mile last year, while Kyle Purvis added another win on his way to the series title.
Winged Sprint Cars will return to Montgomery after a year hiatus with the Must See Racing Xtreme Sprint Car Series. Ron Larson and Bobby Santos III have won previous Sprint Car races at Montgomery with the King of the Wings National Sprint Car Shootout Series.
