After being struck down by Mother Nature’s rainy wrath in 2018, the inaugural Speed51 Super Select is at last down to the one month mark in 2019. In the past few months, a new set of invitations have been extended to the hottest Super Late Model drivers, who have won the biggest SLM prizes in the past year, all for a chance to duke it out at Lucas Oil Raceway Indianapolis over 75 laps for a trophy and lots of money.
As for those racers who don’t receive an invite, they will still have a chance to qualify for the $10,000 “Winner-Take-All” Super Late Model All-Star race on Saturday, September 7.
That chance will come during a 50-lap qualifying race, “The Open,” held prior to the start of the Speed51 Super Select.
Drivers competing in the qualifying race will time trial for their starting position in the 50-lap race.
A minimum of two drivers and maximum of four drivers will transfer to the Speed51 Super Select from “The Open.” The number of transferred drivers will depend on the amount of entries for the qualifying race and the amount of “Select Team” drivers who accept their invitations prior to the event.
The inaugural Speed51 Super Select will be a 75-lap race that will feature a trio of 25-lap segments. After the final 25-lap segment, the driver who comes out on top will score the $10,000 top prize.
A stout field of Super Late Model racers from all over North America will be competing in the inaugural Speed51 Super Select. Already, 22 drivers have been extended invitations, with the final batch expected to be sent in the next few weeks.
The Speed51 Super Select will be hosted by Track Enterprises and sanctioned by the Champion Racing Association (CRA). In addition to the 75-lap feature and 50-lap qualifying race for the Super Late Models and the USAC Silver Crown Series will be on hand for the 100-lap Rich Vogler Classic.
