Saturday - 6:05pm CT - The drivers meeting will be taking place in a few minutes. We will be heading pit side for the meeting and qualifying.  Logan Boyett did take a few extra laps after practice.  Looks like he was ironing out some bugs on his Late Model.

Saturday - 5:25pm CT - The local divisions are on the track for their practice sessions. The ASA SAT cars will have qualifying at 7pm.  Prior to the local cars being on the track the ASA SAT ride-along car was on the track with several race fans getting the feel for the Mobile track.  Speed51,com's Elgin Traylor took a ride with Tour Operation Manager Micky Cain. Let's just say that it got Traylor's attention.  Fans can enjoy ride-along's all season long with ASA SAT this season. Stop by the ASA SAT trailer in the infield for more information.

Saturday - 4:15pm CT - Several drivers are knocking on the door for their first ASA SAT win.  Jeff Choquette has won four pole positions in the past, but he has never won a race.  A year ago he did take the checkered flag at Hickory only to have a technical infraction strip him of the win.

How about Johanna Long?  We are in her back yard this weekend as she has won at both Mobile and Five Flags Speedway.  The Johanna Mania would get even bigger if she could win her first ever Late Model touring event.

Jason Hogan has made the call to run full time in ASA SAT this season. The Cleveland, Georgia, driver won three races last season.  He is already fast on the charts today. 

New tour regulars like Max Gresham, CJ Faison and Parker Hamnons could also be in the running for an opening day victory. 

Saturday - 4:10pm CT - The final round of practice is complete, we will have the top 10 speeds in a few minutes. 

Saturday - 3:40pm CT - The second and third rounds of practice are in the book.  John Bolen led the second, while William Wambles led the third one.
