WHEELERSBURG, OH-The Southern Ohio Speedway is proud to release its 2014 schedule.  The 2014 schedule will feature the most diverse schedule of events in track history.

One of the big highlights of the 2014 schedule will be the Road to the Southern 100 Super Late Model mini-series.  The Road to the Southern 100 will feature a five race mini-series in the spring for the Super Late Models that will culminate with the 19th Annual Southern 100 paying $10,000 to win the winner of the 60 lap Super Late Model A-Main.  The Road to the Southern 100 starts with Opening Night on April 4th featuring a $3,000 to win Super Late Model event and continues with $2,000 to win Super Late Model shows through the remainder of April.

The driver highest in points coming into the Southern 100 that does not make the Southern 100 A-Main will receive a provisional into the feature event.  Over $70,000 in purse money will be paid out over those five weeks for the Super Late Models.

“There’s no doubt that SOS is where you will want to be at this spring for Late Model racing with the Road to the Southern 100 mini-series”, stated SOS co-promoter T. J. Layne.  “Our spring shows have always had great car counts and some of the best racing of the year, we feel like that will be the case even more with the Road to the Southern 100.  The provisional into the Southern 100 will be a great incentive for race teams to try to compete in all of the Road to the Southern 100 events.”

Following an off week after the Southern 100, the track will be back in action on Friday, May 16th with the OVSCA 410 Sprint Cars, WRS Late Models, GCP Engines Sport Mods, Pure Stocks, and Enduros.  The May 16th race will be the inaugural race for the new cost effective WRS Late Model division that will highlight much of the 2014 schedule.  The class has received strong interest since it was announced one month ago.  Pushing the start of the season for the WRS Late Models to early May was done to give drivers additional time to get their cars ready to ensure the highest car counts for the fans.

In addition to all of the weekly shows the WRS Late Models will be a part of, the class will have $1,500 to win specials on June 6th and September 6th.  The June 6th show will be one of those “can’t miss shows” of the season as the OVSCA 410 Sprint Cars will also be a part of the WRS Late Model special.  The OVSCA 410 Sprint Car/WRS Late Model combination will also be ran on July 18th.

In addition to the Road to the Southern 100 mini-series, Super Late Models will be on the schedule once a month during the summer months for special events.  The Super Late Models will run in the $3,000 to win Southern Showdown on June 20th, the $3,000 to win Firecracker 30 on July 2nd, and the $3,000 to win Hall of Fame Classic on August 1st.

The track will also feature four “thrill show” style type events.  The first of those will be the 1st Annual Spring Thaw Enduro on March 8th.  The second will be the Spring Thrill Show on May 30th featuring an Enduro with a bracket type heat race format, Powderpuff Races, and a Van Enduro.  The Summer Sizzler Thrill Show will take place on August 15th and feature an Enduro, Truck Enduro, Burnout Competition, and Powderpuff Races.  The final thrill show will be the 4th Annual Fall Havoc Enduro on November 8th.

It is important to note that additional races and additional special events for other classes will likely be added to the 2014 schedule.  The tracks fall schedule is set as TBA but those could be changed to weekly shows with WRS Late Models , Modifieds, GCP Engines Sport Mods, Pure Stocks, and Enduros depending on certain factors such as weather.  The track will also be working on adding additional special races for the WRS Late Models, Modifieds, GCP Engines Sport Mods, and Pure Stocks.

The start of the 2014 season is only a little over one month away.  In that time period, the track will be releasing lots of 2014 season preview content on the track website.  For more information visit www.southernohiospeedway.com.
