SECA Reveals SRI Topless Tour Schedule

South Eastern Crate Association Officials, in their partnership with SRI Performance, are pleased to release the working schedule for the 2018 SRI Topless Tour. For the first time in association history, SECA Late Model competitors will have the option of pursuing both a Weekly Championship and a Touring Championship. Though touring race format and point fund details are still being finalized, series officials are eager to ignite the new racing season and tour.

While fans can anticipate up close and personal views of the drivers via the topless format, race teams can look forward to these tour events paying a minimum of $2000 To Win / $200 To Start. Though Topless Late Model races have been around for years, they are definitely new to a Crate Late Model touring series here in the southeast.

SECA Unveils SRI Topless Late Model Tour

After much consideration and a thorough review of the current Bonus Points system, South Eastern Crate Association officials are pleased to announce the addition of a touring series! The SRI Topless Tour is set to debut in 2018, giving SECA Crate Late Model teams an additional championship option for the upcoming season.

"While weekly racing remains the foundation of SECA, a late model tour has been under consideration for quite some time", said SECA’s Jason Atkins. "With the proper structure, we feel we can improve the weekly championship program and also introduce additional options for our late model teams." Replacing the Bonus Races, the 2018 SRI Topless Tour is a brand new championship that will offer its own point fund totally separate from the existing weekly championship. "By introducing the tour, we feel that we can properly reward drivers that choose to support their weekly track and also give traveling teams a championship to pursue. By having the cars compete topless, we hope to offer race fans increased excitement and an entirely different perspective. Who knows, there may be a race team out there that can sweep both the weekly and the touring championship!"

While SRI Topless Tour dates and point fund details are being finalized, SECA Late Model drivers can look forward to the option of pursuing a weekly championship and/or a touring championship. Additional details regarding the 2018 season will be released soon. In the meantime, we ask you to join us in thanking SRI, our tracks, and the rest of our marketing partners that have enabled us to expand the South Eastern Crate Association late model program in 2018!


Princeton Speedway Joins South Eastern Crate Association

With the 2018 racing season just around the corner, association representatives are pleased to officially welcome Princeton Speedway to the SECA family. Managed by Melvin and Sherlene Bishop, the West Virginia track hosts weekly racing action on Saturday nights. After multiple conversations with track officials, Princeton's 602 Modified Division will compete under the South Eastern Crate Association banner for the 2018 season.

"I have known the Bishop family for several years now", said SECA's Jason Atkins. "Their family and their staff have always been a pleasure to work with. Since the first time I visited the facility several years ago, Princeton has been one of my favorite places to watch racing. The Crate Modified division continues to grow and the addition of Princeton to our growing family of tracks is definitely a step in the right direction. We look forward to working with them to help establish and expand crate modified racing."

With the addition of Princeton, SECA Crate Modified teams will now have an additional option when it comes to earning weekly championship points. Drivers are reminded that their best 15 finishes are scored for the SECA Crate Modified Championship.
