Little Rock Hosts Late Model Stock Car Test
Half Mile Track is a Good Fit
Track PR Report
Ten Late Model Stock Car teams converged on the Little Rock Speedway Sunday looking to hit on the right set up combinations to get around the half mile track as fast as possible.
“This is a larger track and different that what we normally run on and we are trying to get a feel for running on a track this size,” said Charlotte, N.C.’s Cory Donley. “We are here to get ready for an upcoming late model race at the half-mile Martinsville Speedway.”
Like Wilson, Alex Yontz of Walnut Cove, N.C. made the trip to Rockingham looking for some seat time on the half-mile oval.
“We are just trying to get ready,” said Yontz. “When we get there (Martinsville), there are so many cars that you don’t get a whole lot of track time to prepare for the race. This test is valuable because we will get a good baseline to start. We are working today to get our shocks and springs close, so we don’t have so much to do when at Martinsville.”
“We would like to thank all the teams that made the trip down today,” said Rockingham Speedway General Manager Robert Ingraham. “I hope the information they are able to gather at the Little Rock will proves to be useful.”
The late models hit the track again on Monday (September 14) with testing from 10 AM - 12 noon and again from 12:30 PM - 4 PM.
Racing returns to the Little Rock later this month with the Allison Legacy Series on September 26.
The ARCA RE/MAX Series and USARacing take to the one-mile Rockingham Speedway October 9-11 with the running of the USAR Aaron’s 150 and the ARCA Carolina 200.
