Tri-County Motor Speedway’s first CARS Tour race since the 2018 season features stacked entry lists for both the Late Model Stock and Super Late Model Tour.

Over 43 cars are entered between the two divisions, with Saturday’s penultimate Super Late Model feature also serving as a combination race with the Southern Super Series.

As with the CARS Super Late Model Tour, the fight for the Southern Super Series championship will be settled between two drivers. Stephen Nasse is searching for his second consecutive title and his third overall but will have to maintain an eight-point lead over Jake Garcia over the final three races of the year.

A third consecutive championship is on the line for Matt Craig in the CARS Super Late Model Tour. He holds a narrow advantage of four points over Carson Kvapil, who enters Tri-County with momentum after picking up his third win of the season at Motor Mile Speedway.

In the CARS Late Model Stock Tour, four drivers have a realistic shot at the championship.

Current points leader Bobby McCarty won the most recent CARS Tour race held at Tri-County and is fresh off his second win of the 2021 season at Motor Mile after leading 107 of the 125 laps.

McCarty’s victory extended his lead to nine points over rookie Kaden Honeycutt, whose teammate and car owner in Justin Johnson sits in third with a 13-point deficit. Defending champion Jared Fryar trails McCarty by 19 points following a disappointing finish of 11th two weeks ago.

Saturday’s 225 can be viewed live on and will get going at 7:45 p.m. with the 100-lap Super Late Model feature. Entry lists for both divisions can be found below.

    Supers are late models, too, Brandon!

    Be precise in your reporting. LMSC, SLM, and PLM are acronyms and have specific meaning. They all be late models, so describing a car as a late model tells us nothing.

    Euphemisms and subject conflation will be the death of us all, don’t be a contributor. ;<)
