Roderick Charges to Second SLM Challenge Triumph In a Row

Nashville, Tenn — A poor qualifying effort led to a sensational charge, as Casey Roderick stormed through a stout field at Fairgrounds Speedway Nashville to win the North/South Super Late Model Challenge for the second straight year.

Roderick started 20th in a 36-car field of some of the finest Super Late Model drivers in the country, but raced his way to the front of the field in the 100-lap event.

“Man, I am so pumped,” Roderick said in victory lane. “We’ve had some bad luck with these Super [Late Model] races. It’s a brand-new race car, it had 30 laps on it when we showed up today. I just want to thank Fury Race Cars and everybody at their facility to give me the opportunity to come up to their shop and build this race car for two weeks.”

Anderson Dances Twice with The Rattler, Ends Up Snakebit on Sunday

OPP, AL (Mar. 19, 2018) – Cole Anderson and his ATF/Gunslinger team competed in their first Rattler 250 weekend together this past weekend, finishing tenth in the pro late model on Saturday. On Sunday, a mechanical issue forced them to park the No. 97 prematurely, resulting in a 22nd place finish.

The team led by Dustin and Jamie Skinner prepared Anderson another fast car, proven by practice early in the weekend when the team charted second fastest in both of Friday’s practice sessions. Qualifying yielded similar results with Anderson clocking in fifth fastest, setting him up for a solid starting position entering the 125-lap Baby Rattler event.

At the drop of the green, Cole began working his strategy, attempting to position himself for the run to the checkered flag. He kept pace with the leaders until problems began to emerge on the No. 97, causing the car to get tight, making it hard to turn through each end of the speedway. Ultimately, he was able to wrestle the car home with a top ten finish despite the issues which arose mid-race.

Plott Hoping for Strong Start to SSS Season at The Rattler

If there is one race and one race track that Kyle Plott is most looking forward to, it is the Rattler 250 at South Alabama Speedway. Not simply because it is the first race on the 2018 Southern Super Series calendar, but also because it is also the first major Super Late Model race that the Georgia driver competed in back in 2015.

Since that time the 4/10-mile track in Opp, Alabama has become a favorite of his. Despite battling mechanical difficulties, he has wielded strong showings at the track.

“It’s always been a good track to me. I enjoy the place and I like the way they run it.  It’s just a cool track out in the middle of nowhere,” Plott said.  “The Rattler brings out some of the best and that’s why a lot of people like it so much. A lot of people try to get out to Opp, it’s a track that’s got so much character and it’s unique compared to other ones. If you’re off just a little bit you’re going straight to the back. Really excited to see how it plays out.”

Cole Anderson Prepared for Two-fanged Approach at Rattler 250

NORTHFIELD, MN (Mar. 14, 2018) – Not many people are keen on two-fanged approaches when dealing with rattlesnakes, yet Cole Anderson is hoping both teeth sink in for him this weekend during the Rattler 250 at South Alabama Speedway. Anderson will be racing the marquee event each night of the event, piloting both a pro late model on Saturday and a super late model on Sunday. If he succeeds, he’ll be greeted in victory lane by a genuine, live rattlesnake as is track tradition.

The attempt at a double is nothing new for Anderson, who has done it multiple times before in his career. Doing it at the Rattler with a relatively new team is the difference this weekend, as Anderson is hoping to build on the championship he earned at the World Series of Asphalt in New Smyrna Beach, Florida, nearly a month ago.

“New Smyrna went pretty decent since we ended up winning the pro late model championship and five out of the seven races,” the driver of the No. 97 Toyota said. “That was pretty special for our whole team considering it’s our home track and neither one of us had ever won a Speedweeks championship. Our run at New Smyrna definitely turned some heads and we’re looking to do the same thing at the Rattler. Even though we’ve never run a super race together, I’m confident it will begin to come to us by Sunday.

“We’ll be running the pro and the super this weekend, but obviously our main focus is the 250-lapper on Sunday,” Anderson continued. “I think we’ll have a good shot with the pro car on Saturday night, considering we’re with the same team led by Dustin and Jamie Skinner that we won with in Florida.”

Anderson has had success at South Alabama Speedway in the past, winning a Southern Super Series event there two years ago. His on-track experience and success with the team, owned by former NASCAR Camping World Truck Series champion Mike Skinner, has him pumped to travel to various tracks chasing trophies this season.

In addition to a new experience together as a team, Anderson is already noting the things which may play a factor in Sunday’s 250-lap contest.

“I’m not sure how much rubber we will lay down on Saturday to affect the racing surface, or if it will have any effect at all. It’s a bit of a coin toss,” Anderson explained. “I feel like the track is pretty sensitive to that kind of thing, I feel like usually the more rubber gets laid down, the better our car gets.”

Opening activities for the Rattler 250 weekend kick off Thursday and Friday with practice, while qualifications for the 250-lap super late model event take place on Saturday evening ahead of the pro late model feature. The 125-lap pro late model race is scheduled to take the green on Saturday night just after 7pm local time. The 250-lap super late model race, a points-paying Southern Super Series sanctioned event, takes the green at 2pm on Sunday afternoon.

Pollard Wrestles Away Another Lee Fields Classic Win at Mobile

Mobile, Ala – Mobile International Speedway hosted its second of only two Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco events of the 2017 season Saturday night. Sixteen Super Late Models battled it out around the Alabama half-mile, but the victory came down to a wrestling match of horsepower between two strong machines.

Stephen Nasse and Bubba Pollard played a game of cat and mouse as the laps wound down in the Lee Fields Classic 150. Nasse had managed to fend off the No. 26 throughout the later stages, but a move with less than five laps to go netted Pollard his sixth victory in the race.

“I had Bubba pressuring me for about 20 to 30 laps there towards the end,” Nasse said. “It definitely made it a little tough behind the wheel.”

Pollard in a League of His Own at Five Flags

Pensacola, Fla. — Five Flags Speedway (FL) hosted its third Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco event of the 2017 season Friday night. A talented field of 25 Super Late Model drivers made their way to the Pensacola half-mile oval, but at the end of the night it was one driver in a league of his own.
Bubba Pollard made the 125-lap race look easy as he cruised under the checkered flag, claiming his 15th career Southern Super Series win. Pollard took over the lead just before the race reached the halfway mark and never bothered looking back.

“This is actually a different race car than what we’ve been racing all year,” Pollard said. “It just goes to show you that we have good race cars. We’ve just got a really good piece right now.”

One late-race caution on lap 90 erased the gap between first and second, threatening to end Pollard’s dominating performance. Donnie Wilson would have a chance steal back the lead from Pollard as the two restarted side-by-side. The ten-lap shootout proved to be more of the same, however, as Pollard got the jump, once again running away with the show.

“I know it wasn’t the most exciting race, but I appreciate all the fans coming out,” Pollard said to a crowd of cheers. “It’s great to see this many people and I can’t thank them enough.”

Wilson Wins SSS Rumble by the River at Montgomery

Montgomery, Ala. — Sometimes it really is better to be lucky rather than good. After Saturday night in Montgomery, Donnie Wilson wholeheartedly agrees.
Wilson, who professed to being no better than a “third or fourth-place” car for most of the event, took advantage of a late-race restart stack-up to take home the checkers in the Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco Rumble By The River 125 at Montgomery Motor Speedway in Alabama.
“We didn’t have the best car, but we were fast all night,” Wilson said. “I have been in a lot races where I had the bad luck. I was fortunate tonight to be on the good end of bad situation.”
Fifteen-year-old Chandler Smith appeared to be on his way to his first Southern Super Series win until the glass slipper came off with seven laps to go.

Pollard Gets Last Laugh in Border Wars 250 at Anderson

Williamston, S.C. — Drivers from the Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco showed up in full force for the series’ inaugural visit to Anderson Motor Speedway in Williamston, South Carolina on Saturday night as they shared the spotlight with the CARS Tour for the dual-sanctioned Border Wars 250. 
SSS regulars dominated the night, grabbing eight out of the top 10 finishing spots with Senoia, Georgia’s Bubba Pollard getting the last laugh and rolling his car into victory lane following 125 laps of Super Late Model racing.
“It was fun. At the start of the race we got hung up on the outside and got freight-trained. We finally got in line around eighth.” Pollard said after the event.  “When you’ve got a good race car and a fast race car it’s hard to be patient. A lot of the tracks we run are bigger and there’s more room. This place is so tight that you have be aggressive.”

New Launched by 51 Designs

SENOIA, Ga. — Bubba Pollard has a lot going on for him. The Georgian is one of the most decorated Late Model drivers throughout the last decade. He welcomed a daughter in the world during the last year. Pollard also announced, just last week, that Anderson’s Pure Maple Syrup had signed with him as a primary sponsor. And now, Pollard’s website – the home for all things Bubba Pollard – has also undergone a facelift.

Kyle Plott Stays Consistent at Five Flags; Looks Forward to Anderson

Pensacola, Florida – Kyle Plott entered Friday’s Southern Super Series race at Five Flags Speedway (FL) looking to make gains in the championship hunt. At the end of the day, Plott did just that by continuing his consistent start to the season with another top-10 finish.

Plott qualified just outside of the top 10 and started the race at Five Flags Speedway (FL) from the 11th spot. By surviving a race of attrition and keeping his nose clean, the young driver found himself tucked in the ninth position when the checkered flag was waved.

While he was able to gain points on his competition, Plott was still left wanting more at the end of the night.

Nasse Leads So. Super Series into Inaugural Bristol Event

Pensacola, Fla. — With all the hype surrounding the inaugural Short Track U.S. Nationals, which is set to roll at Bristol Motor Speedway (TN) this Saturday and Sunday, one storyline that has passed under the radar has been the fact that all races will count towards the points championship of their respective sanctions. For the Super Late Models, it’s a bit more complicated with points being available for the ARCA/CRA Super Series, CARS SLM Tour and Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco.

On the Southern Super Series front, the consistent finishes from Stephen Nasse have put him on top of the Southern Super Series standings after the first four races of 2017. That consistency has earned him a guaranteed provisional for the race, but consistency is not on his mind heading into Bristol.  
“I have a problem with (racing like) that.  Obviously, I’ve been racing smarter, but I’m going to keep the same pattern I’ve had going,” Nasse said.  “I’m not going to go in and take it easy for the race. I want to win this race, it’s Bristol.  There aren’t a lot of opportunities to get there. I’m going for nothing but a win.”

Choquette Runs Away with So. Super Series Win at Mobile

Mobile, Ala. — Mobile International Speedway hosted its first of only two races on the 2017 Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco circuit Saturday evening. At the end of the 95-lap feature, it was Jeff Choquette who prevailed, besting 17 other competitors with a superior green flag run.

Choquette took over the lead from young gun Chase Purdy just under a quarter of the way through the race, never looking back.

“We struggled yesterday over at Pensacola, but it’s good to come back here and rebound,” Choquette said. “We knew we had a good car when we unloaded and we tweaked on it a little bit more.”

Pollard Ends Drought with SSS Victory at Five Flags

Pensacola, Fla. — Twenty-seven cars were in attendance at Five Flags Speedway (FL) Friday night to kick off the Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco doubleheader weekend. Bubba Pollard dominated the latter half of the 100-lap event before parking his No. 26 machine in familiar territory: Blizzard Series victory lane.

This win has been long anticipated for Pollard who has suffered from an unusual drought throughout the early part of the 2017 season. His only victory had been the Red-Eye 100, a January race at New Smyrna Speedway (FL).

Pollard acknowledged the difficulties his team has been having and the impact it’s had on all of them.

Eckes Focused on Dominion After Solid Finish at The Rattler

GREENVILLE, NY — Christian Eckes appeared to be one of the cars to beat Sunday at the 41st annual Rattler 250. The 16-year-old driver put his Fury Race Cars No. 15 near the top of the charts throughout the weekend, however brake issues prohibited him for contending for the win during the 250-lap race. Despite the issue, the New York driver held on for a sixth-place finish.

“The weekend started off well, but definitely did not end how we intended it to,” Eckes said. “We were so fast in the beginning but unfortunately we had zero brakes in the race. We believe it was an issue with the master cylinder but we had such a great race car.”

Eckes qualified his No. 15 machine in the fourth position and quickly made his way into the second spot just a handful of laps into The Rattler 250. He slid back to fifth position at the lap 100 break and from there worked hard to stay in the top 10 for the final 150 laps. A late charge from ninth to sixth over the final 45 laps gave Eckes a solid finish.

Majeski Wins So. Super Series Season Opener at The Rattler

Majeski Goes Back-to-Back at The Rattler

Kinston, Ala. — The trophy looks the same. The check is for the same amount. However, Ty Majeski’s win in the 2017 Rattler 250, the season opener for the Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco, tells a vastly different story than his previous triumph.

Majeski grabbed the lead for the first time all day from Harrison Burton on a restart with just 19 laps to go on Sunday afternoon. In 2016, Majeski dominated the race, leading all but eight laps en route to his marquee win in the Deep South.

“We definitely didn’t have the car to win all day,” Majeski told powered by JEGS. “We were not in the race track quite where we needed to be. We weren’t the best car today, and probably shouldn’t have won. But in my opinion, those are the days that define you as a team and as a driver. When you win races you shouldn’t, they are always special.

Kelley Joins Carswell for Run at Southern Super Series Championship

PENSACOLA, Fla. — Drivers hoping to contend for the 2017 Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco championship just saw their road to the title get a whole lot tougher. The Carswell Motorsports team, which fielded a championship effort for Daniel Hemric in 2013, has brought in veteran ringer Paul Kelley to pilot their No. 98 Super Late Model this season.

Kelley will drive the team’s car full-time on the Southern Super Series with hopes of a championship effort in 2017.

“Jake (Carswell) called me last week and asked me if I would be interested in driving for him,” Kelley said. “I have known Jake & Deanna Carswell for years from having driven against them and now we are teaming up for the 2017 season. Jake said they wanted to go for the championship in the Southern Super Series and that’s what we are game for.”

VanDoorn Ready to Wrangle Rattlesnakes in Rattler Debut

PENSACOLA, Fla. — Johnny VanDoorn has done a lot of winning throughout his career, but not recently. After putting his own driving duties on the back burner for a few years to get a driver development business off the ground, VanDoorn returned to the seat last year. The 2016 season ended up being what could be defined as “tumultuous.” VanDoorn is now hoping to put all of that behind him when he makes his Rattler 250 debut at South Alabama Speedway on March 19.

The Rattler serves as the season-opening race for the Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco, and it will be VanDoorn’s season opener as well.

“This is the first time I’ll actually be racing myself,” VanDoorn explained. “I’ve been down there one time before with Erik Jones back when we were taking care of his cars in like 2011. But this will be my first trip back there in I guess six years and my first time driving it.”

Wilson Tames the Bear, Clinches 2016 Southern Super Series Title

MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Donnie Wilson has dominated races in the past, but said it will be hard to duplicate his strong run in the Alabama 200 Sunday afternoon at Montgomery Motor Speedway.

Wilson led 183 of the event’s 200 laps en route to not only a win in the prestigious Alabama 200, but also the 2016 Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco Championship. With the win, Wilson mathematically locked up the 2016 title and a guaranteed spot in December’s 49th Annual Snowball Derby.

“I don’t know if I have ever had a car this good and been able to win with it,” Wilson said. “Today, the car was flawless .I just ran my pace the first 100 laps, and we didn’t really make any changes for the second half. I was expecting the track to change some, but it didn’t; so I just drove the heck out of it and we were able to get the win.”
