SECA Teams Gear Up For Battle At Laurens County Speedway

Laurens County Speedway will play host to the 8th Heintz Performance SECA Bonus Race presented by JRi Shocks on Saturday July 9th. So far this season, no driver has been able to pull off multiple Bonus Race wins. Steve Banal, Ross Bailes, Trent Ivey, Banjo Duke, Furman Parton, Chris Hargett, and Frankie Beard have all found their way to victory lane. Tackling the high banks and tight corners of the historic South Carolina speedway will not be an easy task this weekend.

This will mark the 4th SECA Bonus Race at Laurens since 2013. “Those veterans at Laurens love their home track, they love the prestige, and they enjoy defending their home turf. Drivers like Dale Timms, Nick Deitz, Colby Cannon....they all cut their teeth racing there and I am sure they could do it with their eyes closed.

However, this season has seen quite a few first time Laurens County Speedway winners. "No matter what week it is, you have earned it if you can end up in victory lane there", declared SECA official Timmy Mcabee.

Under the management of the Nabors family, Laurens County Speedway continues its tradition in providing diehard race fans with weekly racing every Saturday night. Laurens is one of the few tracks in the Carolinas that provides racing in multiple late model classes each and every week.

“These corners are tight, it is definitely going to be hot off the track......and I expect that it will be hot on the track as well. Even though there have been seven different bonus race winners this season thus far, the local talent down that way is legit. The guys that we know will be there have either won at Laurens this year or won a Bonus Race. I am splitting hairs to guess if the streak continues on Saturday", Mcabee added.

Laurens hot shoe Dale Timms will lead the charge into Saturday’s event as he currently sits atop the City Chevrolet Weekly Championship Standings. Defending champion Trent Ivey is only 6 points back as $2000 awaits the driver that tames the 3/8 mile bullring.
