WHEELERSBURG, OH-In an effort to provide the drivers with more money, increase car counts, and provide fans with the best shows possible the Southern Ohio Speedway has released a very aggressive revised 2013 schedule.  The track will now have one more race in June, two races a month in July and August, and will run 1-2 events in September, October, and November.  While the new schedule drops three races from the schedule, purses have been increased as beginning in July all Late Model races on the schedule will pay at least $3,000 to win and Modified races will pay at least $800 to win.

“This is an idea that we have been kicking around for a while now”, stated H&L Motorsports co-owner T. J. Layne.  “With the effects the economy has had on car and fan counts for weekly shows this season, we felt like it was best to go ahead and make the move to this type of schedule.  Lots of fans and race teams we talk to just can’t afford to go racing two nights a week every week.  With this schedule, it takes off a lot of that strain and allows us to pay more money and give the fans what we feel like will be incredible shows each time we open the gates.  This also allows us to really bump up our promotions for each event.  The racing this season has been so good every week, we are really excited for what the remainder of the 2013 season will hold.”

The Southern Ohio Speedway will be off this Friday, June 21st but will return to action on Friday, June 28th for “Family Fun Night” featuring Steel Block Late Models, Modifieds, GCP Engines Sport Mods presented by Tomahawk Race Cars, Pure Stocks, and Enduros.  Adult general admission will only be $8 for this event.  We will also bring all the cars out on the frontstretch during intermission and allow fans to come onto the track and meet their favorite drivers.  (We will have a Late Model Meet the Drivers Night on July 19th).

Following the June 28th races, the track will be in action the following week on Friday, July 5th for the second biggest race of the season in the “3rd Annual Southern 50″ paying $6,000 to win for Late Models.  Modifieds paying $800 to win, GCP Engines Sport Mods presented by Tomahawk Race Cars, Pure Stocks, and Enduros will also be on the schedule.  The track will be off on July 12th for what was an already scheduled off week but will return on Friday, July 19th for the “Buckeye 30″ paying Late Models $3,000 to win.  Modifieds paying $800 to win, GCP Engines Sport Mods presented by Tomahawk Race Cars, Pure Stocks, and Enduros will also be on the racing card.

The track will be off on Friday, July 26th but resumes action on Friday, August 2nd for the “3rd Annual Hall of Fame Classic” featuring Late Models-$3,000 to win, Modifieds-$800 to win, GCP Engines Sport Mods presented by Tomahawk Race Cars, Pure Stocks, and Enduros.  This will be the last Late Model points race of the season.  The track will be in action the following week on Friday, August 9th for the “3rd Annual H&L Motorsports 25″ featuring the OVSCA 410 Sprint Cars.  Modifieds-$800 to win, GCP Engines Sport Mods presented by Tomahawk Race Cars, Pure Stocks, and Enduros will also be on the racing card.  Track promoters are currently working on scheduling more events for September and October.  Those events will be announced at a later time.  The final race of the 2013 season at SOS will be on Saturday, November 11th with the “2nd Annual Fall Havoc Enduro.”

On the weeks that racing action is not scheduled, the track will be available for private test sessions.  The cost to schedule a private test is $175 for 2 hours of track time and then $50 for each additional hour.  Track officials will water the speedway for each test.  To schedule a private test, please email southernohiospeedway@gmail.com.  For more information visit www.southernohiospeedway.com.
