CARS Tour vs. Southern Super Series Border War Resurfaces at Greenville-Pickens Speedway

posted in: News 0

Mooresville, NC 3/25/21 – The return of the “Border War” between the Mid Atlantic based CARS Tour and Deep South located Southern Super Series returns to a new track on April 10th. The HarrisonsWorkwear.com 150 will pay $10,000 to the winner and establish bragging rights in the “hotbed” area of Super Late Model racing.

 

Not since the 2018 season, at Anderson (SC) Motor Speedway, has the standalone combination race between the two series been contested. A full field of 29 cars took the green flag and fans were treated to a clinic by Bubba Pollard over the rest of the field.

 

Now with the return of the event at a new track in Greenville-Pickens Speedway, not to mention a hefty payday of $10,000 to the winner, the door is wide open on what to expect when the event rolls around on April 10th.

 

This will be the first event visit to the flat half mile track for the Southern Super Series, while the CARS Tour last visited the track for a lone Super Late Model race in June of 2016. That event saw Matt Craig lead 83 of the 100 laps in route to the win.

 

Several names expected to compete include NASCAR Truck Series regular Zane Smith, most recent CARS Tour winner and points leader, Carson Kvapil. Defending Southern Super Series champion Stephen Nasse, along with Kyle Plott, Jeff Batten, and Jake Garcia will all be in attendance for the showdown. A field full of competitors who have thrived in both the CARS Tour and Southern Super Series will make for a close, intense event that fans won’t want to miss.

 

The format for the 150 lap race will be a familiar one to competitors and fans alike. Green flag laps only will count toward the lap total, with controlled cautions being utilized to allow teams to change up to two new Hoosier tires throughout the race.

 

The above mentioned format will force teams to balance tire conservation and strategy to see who has the most rubber remaining when the race for the checkered flag heats up in the late stages of the race.

 

Tickets and trackside parking for the HarrisonsWorkwear.com 150 at Greenville-Pickens Speedway are currently on sale now. Fans can save big on both by purchasing them in advance at www.carsracingtour.com.
