P&W Sales Southern United Professional Racing Series correspondent
BATON ROUGE, LA (January 22) - The P&W Sales Southern United Professional Racing Series is set to kick off their 27th season of racing in 2016, with (14) events over a eight-plus month period, all beginning with a return to Boothill Speedway on March 26th.
SUPR currently has events schedule at seven different tracks throughout three states -Louisiana, Arkansas and Texas.
Other than the its home-track of Baton Rouge Raceway, the likes of I-30 Speedway, Lone Star Speedway and Battleground Race Park continue to be popular mainstays for the series.
After a near three-year absence from Boothill Speedway in Greenwood, La., the circuit picked up a trio of dates from the facility now run by Bubba Clower, who takes over from 1997 SUPR Rookie of the Year, Jason Ingalls and Travis Evans, this season, at Louisiana's oldest dirt track.
Also carrying three events this season with be The Clay's I-30 Speedway in the Little Rock area, with a stop in late May and a summertime doubleheader in July.
The P&W Sales SUPR Dirt Late Models will make two trips to south Texas for an April and July date on Battleground's big 3/8-mile oval in Highlands, Texas.
Holiday racing at Sam and Lisa Hafertepe's Lone Star Speedway in Kilgore, Tex., has the series back for the 7th Annual Firecracker Spectacular during the Fourth of July weekend and a 'Topless' setting for the Turkey Nationals, just after Thanksgiving.
The series also returns to a track that has really seen its acclamation soar heading into its fourth year, as SUPR picks up an early July date at Billy White's Timberline Speedway for the 2nd Annual Stars and Stripes Shootout.
For the second straight season, SUPR will return to Gene Boyter's "Land of Three Wide", where you never see a bad late model race and the lead could change hands multiple times before a lap is completed, as the series invades ArkLaTex Speedway on May 20th.
To wrap up the myriad of tracks that SUPR will visit in 2016, we close with the root of where it all began -at Donald Watson's Baton Rouge Raceway. Outside of its date in late June at BRR, the P&W Sales SUPR Series will do something it has never done in its entire, long-standing history -race in December! The series will close the year at its headquarters, slinging dirt the first week of December, in its season-ending finale.
Last, but CERTAINLY NOT LEAST, many, many thanks to Wayman and Kay McMillan for their continued support and title sponsorship of the series
-the P&W Sales Southern United Professional Racing Dirt Late Model Series!
Locked and loaded, we are ready for 2016!
