The Southern Super Series 125 presented by Crane Cams at Five Flags will also be a points event for the track’s Blizzard Series and the hotly-contested Gulf Coast Championship. Then on Saturday, May 25, the top names in the Super Late Model scene will move about an hour across Interstate 10 to Alabama’s Mobile International Speedway for the second half of the Southern Super Series doubleheader. The Mobile event, the Southern Super Series 125 presented by VDL Fuel Systems, will also count for the track’s Super Late Model title and the Gulf Coast Championship.

The Management and Staff of Speed51.com are working today with heavy hearts as Today’s Trackside Now is dedicated in loving memory of Robert Dillner, Sr. Mr. Dillner’s No. 51 Figure-8 race car that competed at Long Island tracks was the inspiration for the “51” in Speed51.com, but as a man he was an inspiration to many who knew him. Mr. Dillner passed on his love for auto racing to his sons, Bob Jr. and Matthew, who started Speed51.com 13 years ago and continue Mr. Dillner’s love for all forms of auto racing.

Even above Mr. Dillner’s passion for racing was his love for his family. Mr. Dillner was a loving son, brother, husband, father and grandfather. He supported his sons’ careers in the racing industry. He supported his grandchildren in everything they did, whether it was racing, dance, cheerleading, baseball, basketball or just being there with a joke and a laugh. He was a friend to anyone who met him. They don’t make men like him anymore. He will be missed by us all.
