FASTRAK takes a lot of pride in building what are referred to as “staple events”. These events include the Triple Crown, the Moonshine 50, the East Coast Rumble, the FASTRAK World Challenge and the FASTRAK World Championship. These events have become staples on the FASTRAK Racing Series schedule each year. One event missing from the 2018 schedule is the former Late Model Mania which was held at Lavonia Speedway.
"We work with our tracks to build and brand these events," said DJ Irvine, General Manager of FASTRAK, "Events that teams, fans, media and sponsors come to every year knowing when and where they will be. Our team here at FASTRAK believes this is how we make our speedways money and stabilize the sport as a whole.”
FASTRAK started Late Model Mania at Lavonia Speedway when FASTRAK owner Stan Lester was also co-owner of track along with his partner Max King.
“Late Model Mania was our most profitable event of the year at the speedway,” said Lester, “It is one we need to look into hosting somewhere else since it is no longer at Lavonia. It is an event that will reward another track for taking, and they won’t want to see it leave their track. If we made it work at one track, then we can make it work at new location. It’s simply too good of an event to let slip away. Our teams looked forward to it, as well as the local teams and fans. It was a great kick off for the season.”
In the past, the event included FASTRAK Late Models, ULTMATE Super Late Models, SE Sportsman Limited Late Models and all local classes. Local classes would race on Saturday and/or finish up on Sunday with Late Model classes finishing up on Sunday making it truly a "Late Model Mania".
If any speedway is interested in becoming the new venue of the "Late Model Mania" event, please contact the FASTRAK office ASAP. (678) 935-7304 ext 1 and ask for Stan Lester.
