Hartwell Prepares For SECA Late Model Invasion

With the battle for the 2016 City Chevrolet Weekly Championship presented by heating up, South Eastern Crate Association late model teams are eyeing the northeast Georgia area as Hartwell Speedway plays host to Saturday’s Heintz Performance Bonus Race presented by JRi Shocks. This weekend’s $2000 To Win / $200 To Start event will be the 7th Bonus Race of the 2016 racing season.

6 different winners have emerged triumphant in the first 6 events so far in what has proved to be the most competitive season in SECA Late Model history. While many of the leaders in the championship standings are expected to tackle the 3/8 mile, several local and regional teams have their eye on the $2000 grand prize as well. This weekend’s showdown is currently the largest purse for crate late models at Hartwell Speedway this season as the driver roster for the event continues to grow.

“Hartwell has been a great track partner for our association”, stated SECA’s Timmy Mcabee. “Marty and Joyce provide a great racing and family atmosphere for their drivers and fans. I look forward to seeing the blend of local talent and traveling teams compete on Saturday”.

Will we see our first repeat winner in Bonus Race action this season or will another new face prevail and add another intriguing chapter to Hartwell’s history? For more information about Hartwell visit them online (, on Facebook (Hartwell Speedway), and follow them on Twitter (@HartRacing).
