Some of the top Super Late Model teams in America will meet in Bakersfield, California for the $30,000 to win event. Stars such as Bubba Pollard, Derek Thorn and Cole Anderson are ready to battle for a winner’s purse on Speed51 TV’s pay-per-view broadcast.
“Speed51.com has done so much to help make the Winter Showdown a marquee event,” stated the SRL’s Larry Collins. “Our objective with the Winter Showdown is to draw the top short track teams and build a national event.

It’s good for the teams; it’s good for the event and it’s good for our industry as a whole.”
