Southern Pro Late Model tracks create sub-championship

The continued synergy of Pro Late Model racing in the Deep South has led to the formal alliance between the marquee tracks that run the platform across Florida, Alabama, Tennessee in something called the Rogers-Dabbs Performance Challenge.

Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway, Montgomery Motor Speedway, Mobile International Speedway and Five Flags Speedway will each designate events on their respective schedule as Challenge events. It’s basically a regional touring series comprised of all the weekly tracks.

The driver with the highest points accumulated after the final Challenge event will be awarded a minimum $5,000, with more cash paid down through the top-five.

“With the participating tracks all hosting their own Pro Late Model programs, it did not seem the right time to establish a structured Tour,” stated Montgomery Motor Speedway’s Show Me the Money Series promoter Stan Narrison in a press release. “However, the Rogers-Dabbs Performance Challenge will encourage Drivers to hit these other tracks and have a good shot at some extra cash and recognition at seasons end.”

That sentiment was echoed by Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway and CRA director Scott Menlen.

“Pro Late Model racing has been the mainstay here at Nashville,” said Menlen. “And we do believe the unity shown among these regional tracks only strengthens the entire Pro Late Model landscape. We appreciate the involvement from Rogers-Dabbs Performance Parts in support of this Challenge.”

The exact schedule will be released in the coming weeks.
