Event Preview: Kids Night, Friday, June 12th


WHEELERSBURG, OH-The Southern Ohio Speedway is set for round #5 of the Southern Ohio Championship Series with Kid’s Night on Friday, June 12th.  Kid’s Night is always a favorite among the young fans as kids 12 and under will be admitted FREE along with various activities throughout the night for kids.  The exciting racing card will feature Late Models-$2,000 to win, $175 to start, Modifieds-$600 to win, $100 to start, Sport Mods-$300 to win, $30 to start, and Enduros-$150 to win.

Late Model Preview
The Late Model action at the Southern Ohio Speedway this season has been fast and furious with three different winners in four races.  The last race back on May 15th, R. J. Conley throttled ahead to a $3,000 win, taking his second SOS checkered flag of the season.  Conley Motorsports has won the past three races at SOS.   Points leader Stephen Breeding has been knocking at the door for a feature win all year long as he has three consecutive second place finishes.  Jake Keaton and Audie Swartz have also been models of consistency all year long and look to overcome some bad luck the last race.  It will be another great show on Friday in the Late Model division.

Modified Preview
Jeremy Rayburn has started his season better than any other driver in the modern era of SOS.  Rayburn has won all four races this season as he looks for a SOS all time record fourth consecutive track championship.  South Point, Ohio’s Todd Robinson has also been really fast this season as he has finished second the last two races after late race battles with Rayburn.  Will Rayburn make it 5 in a row on Friday?  Will Robinson get his first win of the year?  Will another driver take their first win of the year?  All of those questions will be answered Friday.

Sport Mod Preview
The Sport Mod division has had incredible competition all season long with three different winners in four races.  Points leader Emily Jordan took her second win of the year that last race out on May 15th.  Eric Dennison, the May 1st winner, has moved up to a tie for the second position in points with impressive rookie Billy Baldridge.  Another great show is expected on Friday.

Enduro Preview
The wacky and wild Enduro division makes it return to SOS on Friday and will tentatively be on the racing card for all remaining races in 2015!  The Enduros will keep the same traditional format with a 10 minute endurance segment followed by a 10 lap dash for cash.  All Enduro action will take place after the last feature. No passengers will be allowed.  There is no entry fee outside of the pit pass fee.  The class will pay $150 to win, $75 for second, and $50 for third.
