Gresham Motorsports Park has made a trio of announcements regarding its upcoming CRA Super Series Late Model event on Saturday, July 17.
The CRA feature – the US Auto Sales World Series of Speed 100 – would be just that, 100 laps of green-flag racing cautions not counting. Additionally, restarts for the CRA Super century battle will be double file, not single file this time around.
The CRA cars and stars opened the 2010 Gresham Motorsports Park racing season when a total of 26 competitors took the green flag on Saturday, March 13. Augie Grill took the win over Chase Elliott, Bubba Pollard, Jason Hogan and Mike Garvey that evening.
Another full field – along with competition in the Outlaw Late Model, Renegade Street Stock, Mini Stock, Truck and Mini-Cup divisions – will be featured in the Saturday, July 17 program.
“We’re very excited to have the CRA Super Series come back to Gresham Motorsports Park,” said GMP General Manager Dan Elliott. “They put on a very competitive event with lots of action and drama the last time they were here in March and we anticipate they will do that again. We should have great racing in all of our divisions on July17. It’s going to be a great show.”
An open test for all divisions competing in the US Auto World Series of Speed at GMP will be held on Friday, July 16. Pit gates open at 4 p.m. Eastern Time. There is no inspection fee for this test and pit passes are just $20. A two-day, weekend pit pass will also be available for $55 on Friday.
Sunoco 110 race fuel will be available to purchase at this test.
Additionally, the GMP Infield Concession Stand will be open that evening.
The public is welcome to view the open test free of charge from the GMP Trackside Parking Area beginning at 5 p.m. Friday. Gresham Motorsports Park is located next to the Jackson County Airport at 500 Lyle Field Road in Jefferson, GA.
The test will feature rotating division of on-track testing from 6-9 p.m. GMP will close at 9:30 p.m. Friday and reopen the pit area on Saturday – raceday – at 11:30 a.m. Spectator and Trackside Parking opens at 2 p.m.
