Rain forces Rattler 250 at South Alabama to Saturday

With an awful forecast for Sunday, the UARA national Super Late Model series and South Alabama Speedway have preempted the Rattler 250 to Saturday afternoon, creating a same-day doubleheader with the Baby Rattler (Pro Late Model) 125.

The schedule will be posted by Friday night and still could be shaped by what happens with local division racing on Friday, which is also subject to a potential rainout. The forecast for Saturday however looks mostly clear for racing and resulted in the effort to get all the racing in on Saturday.

The event airs live on Racing America.

Late Model teams took part in two rounds of practice on Friday afternoon. Jeremy Doss was the fastest man in town on Friday, setting quick time in both rounds of UARA National Series Super Late Model practice for the Hardee’s Rattler 250.
The California driver set the quickest lap of the day during the opening round of practice, at 15.433 seconds around the 4/10-mile facility. Doss backed that up with a 15.475-second lap in the second and final round of practice for the fastest lap of that round.
Michael Hinde was second-fastest in the first round of Super Late Model practice with a time of 15.573 seconds. He was followed by another pair of Florida drivers in Jake Finch and Timothy Watson, with two-time Rattler 250 winner Augie Grill rounding out the top five.
Doss led Gavan Boschele, Jett Noland, Hinde and Michael Atwell in the final practice session for Super Late Models. Noland won the UARA National Series’ most recent event, taking the checkered flag in the Bill Bigley, Sr. Memorial 128 last November at the Freedom Factory.
