Matthew Bishop | STS

For the third year in a row, will be offering a live video stream of the season opener for the Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco, the prestigious Rattler 250 at South Alabama Speedway March 17-18.

The live broadcast on will feature two days of racing from the 4/10-mile oval in Opp, Alabama. Super Late Model qualifying for the Rattler 250, as well as the 125-lap Baby Rattler for Pro Late Models will air live on Saturday, March 17. The big show, the Rattler 250 featuring the Southern Super Series Super Late Models, will take place on Sunday, March 18.

The current entry list is already a who’s-who of names in Super Late Model racing. Former winners Bubba Pollard and Casey Roderick headline the entry list while other well-known names like Harrison Burton, Chase Purdy, Steve Wallace, Steve Dorer and Raphael Lessard will also be making the trip to South Alabama Speedway for the 42nd Annual Rattler 250.

All of the drivers will be battling for the chance to meet the infamous rattlesnake in victory lane.

“The Rattler 250 has become a can’t-miss Super Late Model race,” said Mark Keeler, Operations Manager. “All of us at thoroughly enjoyed bringing the event to a worldwide audience the last two years. We look forward to once again providing a live video stream for those unable to make it to Opp, Alabama.”
