The Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series returns to Lancaster Motor Speedway this Saturday night to highlight racing action at the half-mile oval.

Along with the Carolina Clash, fans will see NDRA Crate Late Models, Crate Sportsman, Super Street, Pure Street, and Vintage. Fans can expect to see some LMS regulars from the Limited Late Model division competing in the Carolina Clash this year.

They include drivers such as Randy Smith, Mike Huey and Chad Paxton. Smith, Huey and Paxton will try to defend their home turf against the Carolina Clash regulars.

In the NDRA Crate Late Model division, drivers such as Brandy Baker, “Downtown Michael” Brown, Andy Blackwood, Travis Steele and many more of the regulars will try and defend there home turf against some of the Carolina Clash drivers with Crate Late Models.

In the Crate Sportsman Division, it will be another highly contested night with Dustin Sweatt leading the way with Dillon Crook, Kenny Ramsey, Josh Walden, Travis Panye, Michael Hough and many more expected.

In the Super Street division, it was “The Gambler,” Brandy Baker taking home the win in a division he’s dominated over the years. Brent Hodges and Jody Bigham will look to give “The Gambler” another run for the money Saturday night along with Joey Engelbrecht and many more.

In the Pure Street division, nothing more can be said of last Saturday’s race. Hinson and 8Ball put on a show for the LMS fans. Hinson and 8Ball both went to the back of the pack, Hinson worked his way back up to the front of the pack only to lose by a fender to James Marion on the last lap.

Expect more of the same Saturday.

In the Vintage division, Ben Helms lived up to his nickname as he had his Chevy “Screamin’” to the finish to take the first Vintage main event of the season. Along with Helms, expect to see Kenneth Deese, Marty Spittles, Don Burns and many more competing to try and stop “Screamin’” Ben Helms from taking two straight checkers.

Admission in the grandstands is $20 and $30 for the pits. The pits open at 4 p.m., with the grandstands gates opening at 5.
