FRIDAY O’REILLY LATE MODEL CHALLENGE - PAST CHAMPIONS RACE
Day one of the O'Reilly Late Model Challenge, Friday June 20th is a very special race from a very special event. Of course you already know about the historic meeting of nine O'Reilly Auto Parts sponsored late model sanctioning bodies this next weekend. You know their names, but on Friday they put their best names forward, literally in the Past Champion's Race.
The premise of the race is to showcase the best of the best for the fans. The O'Reilly MLRA, MARS, SAS, SASE, NCRA, SUPR, TORA, MSRA and BOB will choose two past champions each to represent them in the Friday only 20 lap feature.
The expected past champions list reads like a whose who of late model racing including: Terry Phillips, Kelly Boen, Kyle Berck, Delbert Smith, Joey Mack, Ivedent Lloyd, Allen Vaughn, Al Purkey and more. When you do the math, it's nearly 100 years worth of racing champions between the nine series.
"It's going to be interesting, who gets who, to represent them," said Kevin Greven, General Track Manager. "So many of these great racers have won the championship in multiple series, it will be worth the price of admission just to see who races for whom."
