GEORGETOWN, DE – The “super” season for Super Late Models at Georgetown Speedway gets underway Thursday, May 11.
Competitors in the Super Late Model division have four high-paying events on the 2017 agenda at Georgetown, the first of which is set for early May at the recently resurfaced half-mile clay oval.
A ‘Tri-State Challenge’ is the first event on the docket on Thursday, May 11 featuring a $4,000-to-win, $400-to-start, 40-lap main for the Super Late Models. The event is the first of three consecutive nights of racing: Georgetown Speedway on Thursday, Potomac Speedway in Budd’s Creek, Md., on Friday (May 12) and Winchester (Va.) Speedway on Saturday (May 13).
Super Late Model action returns to Georgetown on Sunday, July 2, a 35-lap, $3,500-to-win program as part of the four-night Independence Day Summer Classic. Action kicks off on June 30 at Bedford (Pa.) Speedway, before traveling to Winchester July 1, Georgetown July 2 and wrapping up on July 3 at Potomac.
For the first time in the history of Georgetown Speedway, the World of Outlaws Craftsman Late Models will invade on Thursday, August 17. The ‘Fulton Bank 40’ event will pay $10,000 to win and is sure to attract national and regional superstars to the Sussex County facility.
For the second consecutive season, the Mid-Atlantic Championship Weekend will serve as the finale. The ’17 edition will take place Friday-Saturday October 27-28. Super Late Models will be present in a 40-lap event paying $5,000 to the winner and $400 to take the green flag.
