(Montgomery, AL) -- The fifth of six races in the Show Me the Money Series is just around the corner. August 18, 2012 marks the date of the 100 lap spectacle at Montgomery Motor Speedway in Montgomery, AL.
With weather always a factor during the summer months in the Southeast, officials at Montgomery Motor Speedway have announced a plan of action in case of wet weather on Saturday.
Officials plan to take every measure possible to ensure the race is completed as scheduled on August 18, but in the event Mother Nature wins, the race will be postponed to the next day, Sunday, August 19.
"With our restrictions with the City of Montgomery and curfew we have in place, we can't race into all hours of the night just to get the show in on Saturday," said track General Manager, Paul Boswell, "Luckily enough, some of the restrictions have been lifted as far as racing on Sundays now. We can race on Sunday any time our show is rained out on Saturday, and that's what we are planning in case we have to this weekend."
The Speedway wants to make sure the fan's get their show this weekend. The show includes the Show Me the Money Series for the Pro Late Models running 100 laps, as well as the Super Stock/Truck division, Street Stock, Mini-Mod, and Buzz classes.
Some of the expected entries for the Show Me the Money 100 include defending series champion and current points leader, Hunter Robbins, 2012 race winners Mike Garvey, Augie Grill, and Mason Massey. Other expected entries include regulars Spencer Davis, Bill Bethea III, Justin South, Daniel Bolden, Kevin Donahue, Ken McFarland, Stacey Crain, Dillian Estis, and Allen Gordon. Brady Boswell will be making his return to Montgomery as well.
NASCAR K&N Pro Series East driver, and great-grandson of NASCAR Founder Bill France, Ben Kennedy will be racing as well.
On the Super Stock/Truck side of things, track record holder Regan Baker is expected to be back, as well as young-gun Spencer Davis.
The Street Stock division will see the usual cast of suspects, all trying to chase points leader Joe Bethea Jr. Daniel Jacks trails Bethea by 37 points, with Billy Ammons just two markers behind Jacks.
In the Buzz division, Wood Brother's Auto Sales in Birmingham is sponsoring a potential $50 bonus "tow money" for drivers who do not regularly compete at Montgomery Motor Speedway if they can finish in the top-five Saturday night.
The weekend kicks off Friday, August 17 with an open practice for all divisions from 4:00pm until 9:00pm. Pit passes for Friday night are just $15, and there is no additional fee for race cars.
Saturday is the scheduled show. Show Me the Money Series 100, Super Stock/Truck, Street Stock, Mini-Mod, and Buzz divisions in action, as well as a special performance by Country Music Artist, Wesley Dennis.
