SUPER SERIES – SUPER SHOW
In one of the most action-packed shows ever promoted at Mobile International Speedway, the Southern Super Series will headline a lineup this Saturday night that also includes the Pitts and Sons Demolition Derby and twin features (two races each) for the Island Motors II Bombers and Praytor Realty Super Stocks divisions.
For the price of one ticket, fans will get the equivalent of two shows after rain postponed the conclusion of the June 8 show that originally featured the Demolition Derby. And for fans who attended that event and kept their tickets, that stub is now good for $5 off the price of grandstand admission.
As if $15 for the most-stacked show of the year wasn’t enough of a steal, the Speedway has decided to give back to the fans and the level of competition in these four divisions will deliver this Saturday night at Alabama’s Fastest Half-Mile.
Southern Super Series Super Late Model Tour
The Super Late Models are back and the Southern Super Series championship battle is just starting to heat up with the summer.
When Bubba Pollard won the first two races of the season – at Nashville and Gresham – it became a forgone conclusion that Pollard was going to run away with the season crown. Not so fast said Augie Grill and Daniel Hemric.
Despite not yet winning a race this season, Hemric is hanging with the “Big Two” on a week-to-week basis and enters this weekend’s twin races (Friday at Pensacola Five Flags Speedway and Saturday at Mobile) just 15 points behind Pollard for the top spot.
“Those two have definitely been the class of the field,” Hemric said of Pollard and Grill. “They have a lot of experience on these tracks and I think that says a lot about what we’ve accomplished this so far this year.
“So while we might need a little bit of help to win one of the races this weekend — that can also be said of anyone in the field and we’re definitely getting better.”
The May 25 Southern Super Series race at Mobile was Hemric’s first at the historic Alabama speedway, saying that it left quite the impression on him after he finished eighth.
“I took a quick liking to it,” Hemric said. “It’s fast and a lot of fun. We’ve got some work to do this weekend to collect the data that everyone else has but I like it a lot.”
Tickets are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors, students under 19 and military. Children 6-11 get in for $5 and five-and-under are free when accompanied by adult. Races begin at 7 p.m. and a ticket stub from June 8 acts as a $5 discount.
