LUCAMA, NC — Southern National Motorsports Park will allow Pro Late Models to run sealed Super Late Model motors with restrictor plates in the Fast Five Pro Late Model Series in 2017.

After several discussions with some of the top Super Late Model engine builders, the Pro Late Model rulebook has been amended to include the sealed motors.  The amendments are as follows:

  • All motors must have seals intake and not tampered with (seal numbers will be written down and verified)
  • Weight will be the same
  • Allstar Performance the “Governor” restictor plate (Part Number 26060) with puck inserts 1.000.
  • 7000 RPM LIMIT
  • All cars must come with drilled extra long carb bolt to seal carburetor to intake before Qualifying.
  • All other rules apply.

“We have been getting a lot of phone calls about the Pro Late Model series this year and we think that this will help get the car count up a bit from last year,” track owner Michael Diaz said.  “I have talked with the motor builders myself and they all agree that the RPM limit and the restrictor plate will get the motors equal on horsepower.”

The Fast Five Pro Late Model Series kicks off its season on Saturday, April 22nd as part of the Springfest 300.
