OCALA, FL – Feb. 4, 2013 – Keyser Manufacturing Co. will sponsor a Last Chance Race during each of the three World of Outlaws Late Model Series programs comprising the Bubba Army Late Model Winter Nationals on Feb. 15-17 at Bubba Raceway Park, giving competitors one final shot to make the A-Main lineup.
The winner of the Keyser Manufacturing Co. Last Chance Race will advance to the evening’s feature event, earning a starting spot behind the B-Main qualifiers and just in front of the provisional starters.
“Keyser Manufacturing Co. is excited about making it possible for one more driver to start each A-Main during the Bubba Army Late Model Winter Nationals at Bubba Raceway Park,” said Brian Daugherty, who serves as the technical representative for the Integra Racing Shocks line produced by the Coopersville, Mich.-based Keyser Manufacturing Co. “We wanted to give something back to the race teams and opening the door for a driver to compete in the A-Main rather than watch it seems like a perfect way to do that.”
Each night’s Keyser Manufacturing Co. Last Chance Race will be aligned based upon the finishing positions of drivers who fail to qualify through the B-Mains. At least 12 cars will start the event, which will be contested at a distance to be determined.
The second annual Bubba Army Late Model Winter Nationals features three complete WoO LMS shows at the three-eighths-mile, D-shaped Bubba Raceway Park. A 35-lap A-Main paying $7,000 to win on Fri., Feb. 15, and a 50-lap headliner offering a $10,000 top prize on Sat., Feb. 16, will lead into the richest race of Florida Speedweeks 2013: the 75-lap ‘Super Sunday Showdown’ on Feb. 17 that boasts a $20,000 first-place check.
