Ridiculously stacked South Carolina 400 entry list at Florence

The case can be made that the South Carolina 400 at Florence Motor Speedway is pound-for-pound the most entertaining Late Model Stock major of the season.

And once again, in year four of the spiritual successor to the Myrtle Beach 400, the stars have responded to promoter Steve Zacharias and supported in a big way an event that everyone seems to want to participate in come the middle of November.

From a Late Model Stock standpoint, Dale Earnhardt Jr. is once again racing at what has become the home track of his second career as a short tracker with what will be his second start in the 400 after also racing the Icebreaker and the Locked In 200 earlier in the season.

The entry list also contains nearly every notable in the discipline from two-time CARS Tour champion Carson Kvapil, defending race winner Brenden Queen, NASCAR national championship runner-up Doug Barnes Jr. and Old North State Nationals winner Landon Huffman.

Josh Berry will make his second start in the Kevin Harvick Inc. car after finishing third in the Fall Brawl at Hickory last weekend. Super Late Model star Stephen Nasse, having recently acquired a Forrest Reynolds Racing chassis, will make his second Late Model Stock start of the year.

Kade Brown, who won the Fall Brawl on Saturday at Hickory, is making the trip down to South Carolina for the 400. Kaden Honeycutt and William Sawalich, having won in multiple disciplines over the past year will compete in the event.

Matt Cox, Justin Milliken, Lanie Buice, Sam Yarbrough and Bryant Barnhill are representing the locals for South Carolina. Former Langley Speedway champion Mark Wertz is making his annual trip down to South Carolina.

All told, it’s really easier to say who didn’t make the trip than who did, a testament to what this race is becoming to the discipline.

The event airs this weekend with All Pro Limiteds, Super Trucks, Legends and Bandoleros on Friday with Late Model Stocks, Mini Stocks and Street Stocks on Saturday. Racing on both days starts at 6:30 and it airs on FloRacing.

    Hopefully, Kade Brown will be parked after initial tech and not even turn a lap of practice.

    Absolutely the worst racetrack I’ve ever been to and that goes back to 1983. I went to this event last year from Florida and left before the main event due to the inability to see the racetrack. Infield haulers blocked nearly the entire back straightaway and turns 3/4. Crowd was so big we still couldn’t find a decent vantage point. I wouldn’t take free tickets to that place.
