BULLS GAP — Who will be “King of The Gap?” That question will be answered on Aug. 16 when Volunteer Speedway hosts the inaugural Steel Head Late Model Championship presented by Vic Hill Racing. Support classes for the event have yet to be announced.

Steel Head Late Model entries must conform to the following rules: a 362 cubic inch maximum (steel block and steel heads – no 14 degree cylinder heads allowed, only 23 degree cylinder heads and angle milling permitted); front tires open; Hoosier 1600 or American Racer 56 rear tires; must punch 55 with tire durometer; 2,350 lb. minimum weight; 8-inch rear high spoiler; one pound per lap burn-off for feature event.

Crate Late Model entries must utilize sealed GM, Fastrak or NeSmith crate engines with open tires on both front and rear, 2,250 lb. minimum weight and an 8-inch high rear spoiler.

Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series/Southern All Star Racing Series body rules apply.

The top-16 cars will be locked into the 24-car main from qualifying. Last chance heat races will fill the remaining spots in the field.

As a bonus, the top-three Crate Late Models in the field will divide $600. The highest finishing Crate Late Model will receive $300, with the second-highest finishing CLM receiving $200, and the third-highest CLM claiming $100.

No entry fee will be charged for this event. For more information, visit www.volunteerspeedway.com.
