Anderson Motor Speedway will be coming alive this weekend when the Southeast Super Trucks Series roars into town. The “Justice4Amara 200” is going to be an awesome night of racing in Williamston, SC.
Justice4Amara is about a dog that was nearly starved to death, shot purposely, and nearly left for dead. The Boxer Butts & Other Mutts Foundation is “Changing the lives of Dogs and Cats One at a Time”
You are not going to want to miss this night as the points battles in all the divisions are heating up and this is the next to last points race. There is less than a 15 point margin between first and fifth, and last time the series visited Anderson, it was none other than Matt Leicht that walked away with the trophy. Matt also is shining high off another big win last weekend at Tri-County Motor Speedway, so he is on a roll here lately.
Lee Tissot is the current points leader in the SEST Series; he has more wins this year than the rest of the drivers so he definitely knows how to get it done in contention for the Championship trophy. Sitting back in second is Matt, only six points out. Ricky Bowers last season’s Rookie of the Year winner has made a huge improvement this season, and inches himself closer to that win each and every week to currently sit third, 11 points behind. Back in fourth and only 13 points out of the lead is Kevin Leicht; he also is no slouch at winning races and is past due for a win. Finally series veteran Ed Surrett is in fifth place. just a mere 14 points out of the lead. It’s going to be anyone’s race this weekend. Who will bring home the hardware from this weekend and gain the most points?
But that’s not all as the Southeast Super Stocks points battle is starting to shape up as well, as young Sawyer Frady has been laying the pressure on current points leader Jason Leatherwood. Frady has gained points every week on Leatherwood and is slowly reeling them down. Will he win this weekend at Anderson or will it be Leatherwood? Will Tyler Worley break out of his bad luck streak and bring home the win? Or will it be someone else?
Don’t forget the always fan favorites the Carolina Vintage Series. Danny Toney has been on a roll here lately as he brought home the win last time out at Newport Speedway, and is currently leading the points for this division. Phil Terry is not going to give up though, as he sits back in second set to on a fight until the end. Troy Burgess is in the top five as well and he also is coming off a big win from this last weekend at Tri-County so maybe he will bring his momentum forward and win again this weekend.
You will want to come out and find you a good seat this weekend so you can watch all the action and see who will take that one step closer to bringing home the end of the year Championship trophy. Gates will open at 4 P.m. with qualifying to start at 5, Racing will start at 7 so come on out and watch “The Most Awesome Show on Wheels” Southeast Super Trucks Series style.
