28th Annual Ralph Latham Memorial this Saturday

It is time once again for one of our annual traditions here at Florence Speedway as the 28th Annual Ralph Latham Memorial is this weekend. The Lucas Oil Late Model Series makes their frst appearance of the season here at Florence Speedway. Last year's event was rained out on two attempts, so anticipation is at an all time high for this years event. Lucas Oil points leader Don O'Neal, Jimmy Owens, John Blankenship, and the rest of the stars of the Lucas Oil Series are all sure to be here. Add in the other local, regional and national stars sure to come compete for the $10,000 top prize and this event should stack up to be one of the biggest events of the year.

Don't forget, new this year, the top 10 rows on the frontstretch are reserved seating. While the rest of the seating areas are open seating, the only way to guarantee yourself a seat is to purchase a reserved seat. Advance tickets with or without reserved seats are available now as well. To purchase reserved seats or advance tickets, call the track office at (859)493-0034.

In addition to the Late Model portion of the program, the Modifieds will be running a $1,000 to win program, and the crates will be competing for $700 to win.
