Myrtle Beach Speedway (SC) announced its cancellation of the Super Late Model portion of the 4th Annual Icebreaker Friday afternoon, citing low entrant numbers.
“Due to the low number of entrants and teams committed to Florida’s Speedweek events, we have decided to cancel the Super Late Model portion of the IceBreaker,” Myrtle Beach Speedway posted on Facebook. “With that being said however, we are still excited about the “4th Annual IceBreaker!” Great car counts are expected for the Late Models, Carolina Mini Stock Challenge, and Street Stocks.”
The Late Model Stocks will now headline the event, running a 125-lap feature.
The Late Model Stock portion of the IceBreaker has developed into the season-opening event for competitors in the Carolinas and Virginia who run those cars. Previous winners of the IceBreaker 125-lap Late Model Stock feature include Tommy Lemons, Jr., Lee Pulliam, and Timothy Peters.
