ASA Late Model Season is Set to Start This Weekend
ASA LM South Season Opener is at Charlotte County Motorsports Park
ASA LM Series PR Report
The ASA Late Model Series Presented by GM Performance Parts will be hosting the 1st South Division event of the Season at Charlotte County Motorsports Park. “The Real Diehl 100”

The ASA Late Model Series closed out our season in 2008 at CCMP and named Jimmy Lang the Champion after a long hard fought battle against nemesis Colt James.  Jimmy won the Championship by a mere 8 points in front of a full house of excited fans.

The Series and teams are extremely happy to be returning to CCMP where the atmosphere is fan friendly and driver friendly.  Although we won't be naming a champion this time around; we will be showcasing quite a few potential Champions that are ready to fight for the right to be an ASALMS Champion. 

We plan to see some of the ASALMS South teams returning from 2008 as well as many new faces ready to compete for a title.  To enter the event you need to complete the entry form and fax or mail it back to the ASALMS Office.
