Pro Series Gets Twin 75 mile races at Daytona for 2017!
Published On: October 18th, 2016
(CLEVELAND, OH) Fresh off a successful visit to Talladega SuperSpeedway last Wednesday, the ASRS Skeebe Flob’s Kettle Corn Pro Series is adopting a short track feel to it’s biggest race in 2017.
The February 15th Daytona race will now run 150 miles, that sounds simple enough. But, the Skeeber Flob’s Kettle Corn Pro Series will adopt the highly popular twin race format from the Super Late Model Tour, splitting the 150 mile race into two 30 lap, 75 mile events paying full points.
The lead lap drivers will be inverted following the first twin (which will be run in the late afternoon sun) setting the grid for the second twin (run under the lights at night). All remaining drivers will be lined up in their finishing position for the second event. Drivers who are knocked out of the first race will be eligible to compete in the second twin.
“Restrictor plate racing is a different animal for sure, but our group feels we can bring a little more spice to this race by adopting this format and creating two action packed races instead of one race with an action filled final few laps” ASRS President Jim Foose said. “There is no time to lag back in a 30 lap race, it becomes a priority to get to the front as soon as possible for these drivers and that’s what we are here to see”.
