Changes at Southern National Raceway Park
Apr 23, 2008 - updated Apr 23rd, 2008 4:42pm
Web posted by SNRP Press

Lucama, NC --

Change is an inevitable part of business and racing. Over the recent years many changes have taken place at SNRP. This year is no different. As the economic landscape changes so do the needs and direction of the racetrack.

You may have heard a lot of rumors about the state of the race track. To be clear, we are not closing the facility. However, the track, like many other businesses in this area, is going through challenging times. As a result, we are working and will continue to work on strategies to help ensure that the fans and racers have a top quality racing facility where you can enjoy the best local racing in the country. In order to better compete in this time of uncertainty, we felt that changes needed to be made to ensure the long term viability of the track. Employee responsibilities have been adjusted and consolidated to help trim payroll expense. Divisions will be reduced and racing start times will be adjusted to take advantage of natural light and reduce overall operating expenses. Here are some of the initial changes we will be making:

1. We have made the decision to eliminate the Mod-4 division and combine the V6 UCar division with the existing UCars. In addition, we have suspended the Super Stock Division until such time a decision can be made on the long term viability of the class.
2. Beginning with the April 26 event, all Late Model Stock cars with crate motors will have to weigh an additional 50 pounds.
- “J. GM Crate engine cars must weigh minimum 3100 pounds, 1395 minimum right side (55% left side maximum).”
- “K. Ford Crate engine cars must weigh minimum 3150 pounds, 1417 minimum right side (55% left side maximum).”

3. To enhance the fan and racing experience we have implemented the “Frenzied Fan Invert”. At the beginning of each class, except the Late Model Stocks, a fan will be selected to be the “Frenzied Fan” for that event. They will get a shirt, the chance to wave the green flag and pull a pill to determine the inversion order for that race. If the original poll winner wins the event the “Frenzied Fan” will also receive two general admissions tickets for the next regular season event.

4. For Late Model Stocks we obtained the “Cooper Insurance Pole Hard Charger”. Prior to the start of the 100 lap Late Model Race or the 1st Twin Race, if it is a twin event, a “Frenzied Fan” will be selected to pull a pill to invert up to 10 positions. The pole award winner will get 5 bonus points and may earn up to $25 for every position gained as a result of the inversion, provided they win the race. The “Frenzied Fan” will receive a t-shirt, the chance to wave the checkered flag and if the original pole winner wins, two general admission tickets to the next regular season event.

We believe that these changes will continue the tradition of great competitive racing at SNRP and encourage more fan involvement and enthusiasm for the sport, while enabling the race park to remain viable through these difficult times. We greatly appreciate your continued support, and value any input you can provide. We look forward to your suggestions on helping us ensure that SNRP stays a viable part of the local racing scene.
