CAPRON, Va. (Dec. 4) - Gearing up for its fifth season under the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Series banner, Southampton Motor Speedway has released a schedule of events for the 2004 campaign.

As in years past, Late Model Stock Cars (LMSC) will be the track's "Feature" division, while the Limited Late Models (LLM) will be SMS's designated "ShorTrack" division.

Looking at the LMSC schedule, the class will be in action during 22 of the 25 regular-season events. The 100-lap feature, a long-time staple of the division, will be replaced next season by a mix of 12 150-lap events and 10 75-lappers.

The 23-race LLM slate includes a mix of 10 75-lap and 10 50-lap features (depending on the length of that night's LMSC feature). On the three LMSC off-nights (June 11, July 9, Aug. 13), the LLM class will take center stage for 150-lap events.

Other SMS track divisions for `04 include: Super Streets (11 races), U-Cars (nine races), Super Fours (nine races) and INEX Legends (12 races).

Also scheduled to appear at SMS next season are: Mid-Atlantic Champ Karts (13 races), Scale Racing League (SRL) Arena-Cup cars (six races) and a new SRL truck division (six races), the Pro-6 series (four races) and the VMCRA Mini-Cup series (two races).

The `04 regular season kicks off with a special Saturday event on March 20 and ends on Friday, Sept. 17. The track will be closed for the two NASCAR weekends at Richmond International Raceway (May 14 and Sept. 10). Plans for SMS's annual season-ending OktoberFAST program will be announced at a later date.
