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 Speed51.com 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.

Snake Bit Pollard Looks for Redemption at The Rattler

SENOIA, Ga. — Bubba Pollard has his wheelman hands ready for double duty at South Alabama Speedway this weekend. The Senoia, Georgia driver will compete in both the Baby Rattler on Saturday and The Rattler 250 on Sunday.

“I’ve ran both of these races there the past few years, so I’ve gotten pretty used to jumping back and forth between the two cars,” Pollard said. “It’s a fun weekend, especially when you are successful, and definitely a race I look forward to every year.”

Success is something Pollard has seen plenty of on the Pro Late Model side, winning the event back to back in 2014 and 2015. Pollard almost solidified the hat trick one year ago, but was involved in a wreck while leading coming to the checkered flag.

Eckes Confident He Can Tame the Rattler in South Alabama

GREENVILLE, NY — Christian Eckes has been off to a hot start during the 2017 season. Though he doesn’t have one in the ‘W’ column, he has two straight runner-up finishes. Of course, there is nothing more the 16-year-old driver would like than to change that, and he hopes to do so this weekend at The Rattler 250 at South Alabama Speedway.

“It would really mean a lot,” said Eckes. “We’ve been in some kind of drought as far as wins the past couple of races, as we’ve finished second the past two races. We’ve been in contention in every race, it just hasn’t fallen in our favor just yet. I’m excited to try to make that change this weekend with my Fury Race Car/Toyota Racing team.”

The Greenville, New York driver earned a third-place finish in his first Rattler experience a year ago. After qualifying 11th, the young driver worked his way as high as second before settling for a third-place finish.

Nasse Looks to Continue Strong Start to 2017 at The Rattler

Pinellas Park, FL — Stephen Nasse will look to continue his strong start to the 2017 racing season when he heads to Kinston, Alabama this weekend for the 41st Annual Rattler 250. Nasse of Pinellas Park, Florida is set to pull double duty, competing in the Rattler 250 (Super Late Models) and Baby Rattler (Pro Late Models) at South Alabama Speedway.

Nasse will be looking to defend his Baby Rattler win from a year ago and hopes to park his No. 51 DLP Motorsports car in Victory Lane for the first time this year.

“Winning it last year, the Baby Rattler, definitely felt really good and was a nice accomplishment,” Nasse said. “I don’t really think it gives us much of an advantage, but I do think we’re going to be very strong. South Alabama is one of my favorite and better tracks so I think will be strong in both races.”

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.”

Anderson Outduels Grill for Second Straight SSS Win

KINSTON, Ala. — Cole Anderson hails from Northfield, Minnesota, but he is right at home in Alabama.

Anderson outdueled Deep South legend Augie Grill over the last 40 laps to claim the win in the Diamondback 125 at South Alabama Speedway. The win is Anderson’s second in a row, and completes a mid-summer sweep of the Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco events held in the Yellowhammer State.

On a restart with 40 laps to go, Anderson and Grill started side by side and stayed that way for eight laps. Lap after lap, Grill was glued to the bottom and Anderson worked the high lane. Ultimately Grill won the battle, but Anderson was setting up to win the war.

Christian Eckes Exceeds Goals in Rattler 250

GREENVILLE, NY — Fifteen-year-old Christian Eckes had never seen South Alabama Speedway’s pavement before the Rattler 250 weekend. There, he was going up against some of the nation’s top short track talents in the Southern Super Series, Super Late Model event. Those two factors combined led Eckes to a pre-race goal of a solid top-10 finish.

Armed with a fast race car, some good help on the radio and a gutsy pit call, Eckes left the track with results that far exceeded his initial goal.

Eckes used a four-tire pit stop following the lap-100 competition caution to gain momentum. With new rubber, he shot to second and challenged the leader ahead of him throughout most of the remaining laps before crossing beneath the checkered flag in the third position.

Midwest Drivers Hoping for Strong Showings at The Rattler

(PENSACOLA, FL) – A handful of Midwest drivers will descend on South Alabama Speedway this weekend for the 40th annual Rattler 250, the season opener for the Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco.

Majeski heads to Opp, AL fresh off a dominating performance during the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna Speedway (FL). The Seymour, Wisconsin driver never finished outside the top two while grabbing three wins and the overall Super Late Model championship.

“I think we really have a lot of momentum coming off of Speedweeks,” said Majeski. “Our consistency was unmatched and I think we really learned some stuff down there that will help us at the Rattler.”

Grala Looks to Build on Success With LFR at The Rattler

Massachusetts Driver Working With Veteran Crew Chief at South Alabama

For the second time in 2016, Kaz Grala will team up with LFR Chassis this weekend for the 40th annual Rattler 250 at South Alabama Speedway. Grala, a native of Massachusetts, will make his way to the 4/10-mile Alabama oval with his eyes set on a strong run and a meeting with the Alabama rattlesnake in victory lane.

Grala made his first Super Late Model start of the year with LFR Chassis at Greenville-Pickens Speedway in February and ran strong for much of that race before being involved in a late incident. He believes that everyone, including the driver himself, learned a lot in their first time out together and hopes to build on that this weekend.

“Greenville-Pickens was a great first experience with LFR,” said Grala. “I think everyone worked together really well, and I think we ran well from the moment we unloaded. This weekend, with such a stacked field, we are all going to be put to the test. If everything goes as well as Greenville did, I think we will be in good shape.”

Quin Houff Announces New Benefit for Duke Cancer Institute

Short Track Racer to Debut New Paint Scheme at Rattler 250 
WEYERS CAVE, Va. (March 17, 2016) – Always looking to give back to the community, short track racer Quin Houff is excited to announce a new initiative to help raise awareness of cancer and cancer treatment options. The non-profit program looks to raise money for cancer research at Duke Cancer Institute through donations at www.beatincancerwithduke.org.

Houff and his family have an intimate connection with the institute as his mother, Kate Houff, is a two-time cancer survivor.

“This time last year, my mom went to a local hospital and was diagnosed with cancer for the second time,” explained Houff. “We were told that this something she couldn’t beat and would have to live with. That was a really low point for us, so we went to Duke for a second opinion and they said it was beatable, which was such a turnaround from what we had been told. Duke put her on an aggressive treatment plan, which started with six months of chemo and then six weeks of radiation, and it worked. The treatments did exactly what we had hoped for. She just went back to Duke recently for a checkup and is considered cancer free. At the same time though, my grandma on my dad’s side is also fighting cancer and we will continue to support her through her fight.”

Houff will debut a new paint scheme to raise awareness for “www.beatincancerwithduke.org” at the Rattler 250 at South Alabama Speedway on March 20. Houff previously ran a black and pink paint scheme with the hashtag #beatincancer last season and is looking forward to expanding the awareness with Duke’s assistance.

“Last year we had the hashtag but I wanted to do something more this year,” said Houff. “The partnership with Duke came about and so we decided to freshen it up. We worked with our designer from last year who used “Duke Blue” and came up with a couple options and went from there.”

While Houff does not have a specific monetary goal in mind that he wants to obtain, he is excited for the impact the partnership will bring as he races across the country in 2016. He will personally be involved in the benefit by donating 50 percent of his winnings to Duke for any Top-10 finishes he secures throughout the season.

“I really like to do whatever I can with my racing career to give back to the community,” Houff stated. “Cancer is very common and directly affects a lot of people. If we can use this platform to give other people the hope that we received last year, that would be huge. I don’t have any other goal than representing the partnership well. Any and every donation would be great. I just want to show people what Duke has done for us and give them that hope as well.”

While he will personally promote this cause throughout the 2016 race season, Houff and his team are actively seeking sponsorship opportunities.
“We are still actively seeking sponsors for the year,” said Houff. “Sponsorships are what keep the race program and possibilities like this partnership happening. We’d love to incorporate sponsors into our www.beatincancerwithduke.org race car.”

To learn more about Houff and his Duke benefit, visit www.beatincancerwithduke.org or his Quin Houff Motorsports Facebook page. Houff can also be followed on Twitter at @P1_Houff.

Coughlin Hoping to Sink Fangs Into The Rattler

Cody Coughlin’s Late Model season is about to kick off with one of the toughest Super Late Model races in the country. His first test will be the season opener for the Southern Super Series, The Rattler 250 at Opp, Alabama’s South Alabama Speedway on Sunday, March 20.

Coughlin and his Team JEGS racing team compete for wins at every race they head to, but an ignition issue in last year’s race brought their bid for the win to a premature end. The 20-year-old driver said the issues in last year’s race are exactly why he and his team want to head back this year.

“It’s a challenging race track, and it’s a track that gives us challenges,” Coughlin said. “Those aspects are a big part of why it’s appealing to us. We want to try and conquer this place that hasn’t been perfected by us yet.”

“It’s a great group of guys,” Sargeant said. “It’s a pretty new team but everyone has worked great together so far and only one race under our belts out in California at Kern County. It wasn’t the best, but it was a great start to the season and a good way to kick things off with a solid top-10 finish.”

Norman, OK Driver Dominates the 39th Annual Event

OPP, AL — Christopher Bell is making his transition from dirt to asphalt racing look real easy at the start of the 2015 season.

“We led early on, which wasn’t in our plans, but it worked out that way after the big crash on the second lap,” Bell explained. “I like leading because you can set your own pace and choose the tempo of the race and save your tires. I knew how fast I could run with these tires.

“The car was pretty good. We made a mock run in practice, and – I will be honest with you – we weren’t really that good,” Bowen said after his run. “But, we made some adjustments on it and got it tuned in good. I really have to thank my crew for their hard work. I feel like we have a real good car for the race.

2014 NASCAR Xfinity Series Champion Hopes to Add Rattler 250 Win to Resume

PENSACOLA, FL — When Chase Elliott sees an opportunity to drive his Super Late Model at a big event, he grabs that opportunity by the horns.  So when the 2014 NASCAR Xfinity Series champion noticed he had an open date on his schedule for March 15, the day of the 39th Annual Rattler 250 at South Alabama Speedway, he took advantage of it by filing his entry for the season-opening Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco event.

Casey Roderick Picks Up First Career Southern Super Series Victory in Rattler 250

Georgia Racer Survives a Wild Race at South Alabama Speedway

Casey Roderick was in the right position at the right time Saturday night in the 38th Annual Hardee’s Rattler 250, the Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco season opener at South Alabama Speedway. When so many others could not capitalize on a victory while being in or near the lead, Roderick sped away in the closing laps for his first career Southern Super Series victory.

Bubba Pollard was the early leader when he was involved in an incident with second-place Ross Kenseth, knocking both out of contention. Augie Grill inherited the lead, but was pushed up and off the track in a run-in with Daniel Hemric. Hemric then took over, but lost the lead when his engine expired.

That put the lead in the hands of Roderick, who despite the challenges of Hunter Robbins and Bowen in the final stages of the race, would not let it go.

Daniel Hemric Poised for Southern Super Series Title Defense Beginning with Rattler 250

Reigning Champ Making First-Ever Run at the Rattler Super Late Model Event

After teaming up with Jake and Deanna Carswell’s Carswell Motorsports for the inaugural season of the Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco in 2013, Daniel Hemric made every finish count by winning the series title by just one point over Bubba Pollard.

Even before starting his run towards a second SSS title on March 16th at the 38th Annual Hardee’s Rattler 250 at South Alabama Speedway, Hemric has already had an impressive start to the 2014 season. The 23-year-old from Kannapolis, North Carolina recently scored a pair of PASS South Super Late Model events in South Carolina.

Now as the 2014 Southern Super Series season gets ramped up with the Rattler at South Alabama, Hemric hopes to carry the early-season momentum towards a second Southern Super Series championship.
