CRA PR Report


Officials from Champion Racing Association (CRA) and John and Sandra Dykes, owners of South Alabama Speedway, recently announced that CRA officials will again be providing support in the areas of race control, procedures, scoring and technical inspection for the 34th Annual “Rattler 250” March 5-7, 2010.

The Speedway is making it possible for one Super Late Model driver to take home over $30,000 in cash and prizes if 50 Super Late Models are part of racing that weekend.  Drivers are encouraged to register to race in the event as soon as possible.  To ensure speedy responses from the teams, Speedway officials announced that qualifying order will be the reverse order that paid entries are received, thus, the sooner teams enter, the later they will be in the qualifying order.

The “Rattler 250” has a long history of great drivers and great winners, with a past champions list that includes Dave Mader, Ronnie Sanders (only 3 time winner), the late Charlie Bradberry, Jason Hogan, Grant Enfinger and two time winner and reigning champion Augie Grill.

The Speedway also announced increased purses for 2010, regardless of car count.  If 50 cars enter and attempt to make the race, track officials are posting a great purse of $20,000-to-win, plus bonuses.  A $5000 bonus will go to the winner if there are 50 cars entered and he/she raced in last year's race ($2500 if there are less than 50). Another $2500 in lap money has been posted as well as a $1000 “Fast Qualifier and Win Bonus,” a $1000 “Start from the Rear and Win Challenge,” a $1500 ARP Bodies Certificate (Package “A” Body) for the winner, $250 Cash and a $500 Certificate from ARP Bodies for Fast Qualifier, $250 Halfway Leader Bonus, plus other awards to still be announced.

The “Rattler 250” will use United Super Late Model Rules Alliance technical rules for the Super Late Models which are the same rules used by the Snowball Derby, Blizzard Series and CRA..  The Snowball Derby's Ricky Brooks will serve as Chief Technical Inspector for the race, with CRA Chief Technical Inspector Eddie Chew to serve in a support role for Brooks.  CRA officials Glenn Luckett, R. J. Scott and Greg Wood will again work in race control and scoring.  For more information about Rattler 250 weekend be sure to visit, www.southalabamaspeedway.com .
