This will be my first trip to Watermelon Captial Speedway tomorrow. Can y’all please tell me the frequency for race control. Also it would be nice to have John Hunter Nemechek’s.

There is one title left within Champion Racing Association that will be decided on this weekend, and that is the 2012 ARCA/CRA Super Series Southern Tour Championship!Bubba Pollard carries just a one point lead over 14-Year-Old Kyle Benjamin. Benjamin while 15-Year-Old John Hunter Nemechek is in third, only 19 points behind Pollard.

17-Year-Old Stephen Nasse is seven points behind Nemechek in fourth while 19-Year-Old Ross Kenseth, who’s coming off three big wins this season in RedBud 300 at Anderson Speedway on July 21st, the Winchester 400 at Winchester Speedway on October 14th as well as the All-American 400 victory the week prior to Winchester in Nashville, Tennessee, is fifth, 20 points behind Nasse.

All 5 are still mathematically alive in the chase for the 2012 ARCA/CRA South title.
