Sophia, NC. --
(February 22) – Caraway Speedway’s Darren and Renee Hackett have announced the creation of a new touring series aimed at weekly Street Stock racers in the Southeast. The Southern Outlaw Street Stock Tour will give local track competitors the opportunity to travel to different speedways in the region with some of the most classic car models in racing. The new series will be made up of a nine race schedule and will compete at four different North Carolina race tracks. Each Southern Outlaw Street Stock Tour event will pay $500 to win and $75 to start, consisting primarily of 40 lap events. Scuffed Hoosier F45s will be the official tire for the new series. Several veteran Street Stock drivers including Jeff Melton and Danny Brewer have toured in recent years and are excited about the opportunities the new series brings.
“It’s really cool and makes you feel like the big boys,” says Melton. “We seem to be bringing in more cars and fans than ever before. It’s always fun to go to different tracks and it seems to make it more even on the competition when you’re not at your home track.”
Fellow North Carolina driver Brewer agrees with Melton and believes the new Southern Outlaw Street Stock Tour will provide even more great side-by-side racing for the fans.
“I think it’s awesome that Darren and Renee [Hackett] have put together a series for the Street Stock class,” says Brewer. “It gives us an opportunity to experience some different tracks. Hopefully with more money on the line to win it will bring new drivers in and build the Street Stocks back to where they used to be when I started.”
The first Southern Outlaw Street Stock Tour event will be on Saturday, April 2 at Caraway Speedway. Other tracks hosting M.A.L.L.S events in 2016 include, Ace Motor Speedway, Concord Speedway, and Tri-County Motor Speedway. Points will be awarded throughout the season for the entire nine race series and the inaugural M.A.L.L.S champion will be crowned at the season finale on Sunday, November 27 at Caraway Speedway as part of the Turkey Trot.
