SECA Releases 2016 Competitors Guide For World Short Track Championship

SECA Bonus Races Deliver Multiple Flavors

In a day and age where crate late model racing is often labeled as “predictable”, the results from the South Eastern Crate Association sanctioned 2016 Heintz Performance Bonus Races presented by JRi Shocks can make a strong case that this segment of dirt late model racing is as competitive as it has ever been. July 9th at Laurens marked the eighth event this season where SECA Late Model teams across the southeast have battled for at least a $2000 payday and so far this season, not one single driver has been able to make multiple trips to Victory Lane in Bonus Race competition.

From the opening event back in March at Cherokee Speedway to this past weekend’s event at Laurens Speedway, drivers throughout the region have traveled to 3 different states to showcase their talents including a Memorial Day weekend trip to The Dirt Track @ Charlotte. 2016 Bonus Race winners include Trent Ivey (Cherokee), Steve Banal (Carolina), Ross Bailes (Friendship), Chris Hargett (Lancaster), Furman Parton (Charlotte), Banjo Duke (Sumter), Frankie Beard (Hartwell) and Dale Timms (Laurens). “This speaks volumes of the competition these guys are facing week after week", explained SECA's Timmy Mcabee. "Jason (Atkins) and I are proud that 9 of the top 10 in weekly points have wins this season. Our 8 Bonus races have produced 8 different winners and that is pretty amazing in my book. I don’t know of anyone that wants to see the same winner every week.”

While every crate late model race may not offer side by side racing throughout the field from the drop of the green to the checkered flag, one can be assured that dominating the SECA Late Model division is much easier said than done. Eight Bonus Races at eight tracks over the span of 4 months has delivered eight different winners and one ultra competitive series that continues to grow in all divisions thanks to the support of its tracks, drivers, and marketing partners.

While SECA officials are already working on new ideas for the 2017 season, we still have 3 weekly championship battles that are far from being decided. Richard Clew currently sits atop the SECA Crate Modified standings, but the gap will close as several drivers including Buck Stevens, Steve Dietrich, and Greyson Stevens get their 15 races scored. In SECA Crate Sportsman competition, Ricky Greene holds a slim 4 point lead over Andrew Blackwood and Andy Mattison. Just behind the lead trio sits Andy Blackwood, Jacob Catoe, and defending champion Mitchell Duvall. Looking for his first SECA Late Model championship, Dale Timms currently leads the chase with defending champion Trent Ivey just 5 points back. Dillon Brown, amidst the most successful year of his late model career, rides third and remains within striking distance of the leaders.

SECA Teams Gear Up For Battle At Laurens County Speedway
 

Laurens County Speedway will play host to the 8th Heintz Performance SECA Bonus Race presented by JRi Shocks on Saturday July 9th. So far this season, no driver has been able to pull off multiple Bonus Race wins. Steve Banal, Ross Bailes, Trent Ivey, Banjo Duke, Furman Parton, Chris Hargett, and Frankie Beard have all found their way to victory lane. Tackling the high banks and tight corners of the historic South Carolina speedway will not be an easy task this weekend.

This will mark the 4th SECA Bonus Race at Laurens since 2013. “Those veterans at Laurens love their home track, they love the prestige, and they enjoy defending their home turf. Drivers like Dale Timms, Nick Deitz, Colby Cannon....they all cut their teeth racing there and I am sure they could do it with their eyes closed.

However, this season has seen quite a few first time Laurens County Speedway winners. "No matter what week it is, you have earned it if you can end up in victory lane there", declared SECA official Timmy Mcabee.

Under the management of the Nabors family, Laurens County Speedway continues its tradition in providing diehard race fans with weekly racing every Saturday night. Laurens is one of the few tracks in the Carolinas that provides racing in multiple late model classes each and every week.

“These corners are tight, it is definitely going to be hot off the track......and I expect that it will be hot on the track as well. Even though there have been seven different bonus race winners this season thus far, the local talent down that way is legit. The guys that we know will be there have either won at Laurens this year or won a Bonus Race. I am splitting hairs to guess if the streak continues on Saturday", Mcabee added.

Laurens hot shoe Dale Timms will lead the charge into Saturday’s event as he currently sits atop the City Chevrolet Weekly Championship Standings. Defending champion Trent Ivey is only 6 points back as $2000 awaits the driver that tames the 3/8 mile bullring.
