John Bolen Ready to Put the Hammer Down at “The Rattler”

Concord, NC --

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: February 27, 2009

Alabama Native Looking to Add his Name to the Historic List of Winners

Short track racers in Alabama have had lots of big races to look forward to in the past, from the Alabama 200 to the Early Bird at Birmingham. However, over the last several years the big race has become “The Rattler” at South Alabama Speedway. The 250-lap Super Late Model race, which will be held on March 8th, is attracting drivers from all across the country. One of those drivers is John Bolen. The Jasper, Alabama, driver is ready to enter his first-ever Rattler 250.

“I can remember back when it was just ‘The Rattler.’ Now it’s gotten to where a lot of people come from all over,” said Bolen. “It used to be just a big southern race, now it is drawing people from farther off. It’s getting Florida cars and North Carolina cars and starting to broaden out and be more like the Snowball Derby.”

Bolen ran the Pro Late Model Rattler 125 a year ago and hopes to improve on his prior South Alabama Speedway experience. After moving to the Super Late Model world, Bolen has really come on strong at the end of the 2008 season. The Rattler will be his first event of the 2009 season. Last weekend, Bolen was at South Alabama Speedway for a test session.

“When we first got there, I could tell the track has really aged in only a few months,” said Bolen. “After lunch we really put in a bunch of laps, and they had us on the 2045 tire. They are going to run those this year instead of the harder tires. You could definitely tell the track had aged, but it is still really fast.”

Bolen had some extra help at the practice session, as car builders Frank and Augie Grill were on hand at the test. Augie won a bunch of races last year at South Alabama Speedway and knows the fast way around the track.

“It was a big help,” said Bolen. “Augie and Frank went with us the other day. They have been such a big asset to us. We unloaded and ran decent times. Then Augie went out and worked with me in the corners and got on the radio and was telling me some things. His experience and showing me the lines was a big asset.”

The Rattler 250 weekend kicks off on Friday, March 6th, with practice and qualifying. On Saturday, March 7th, practice continues with qualifying for the 31st Annual Rattler 250. Later that evening the Pro Late Models will take the track for the 125-lap Pro Rattler. On Sunday, March 8th, the Super Late Model will hit the asphalt for the Rattler 250 at 2pm.
