PENDERGRASS, GEORGIA - The American Racing Association (ARA) today confirmed the First Annual Thunder in the Mountains racing extravaganza to be held on October 6 and October 13 at Newport Speedway, in Newport, Tennessee. The first weekend of racing will showcase the super-fast ARA Southern Thunder cars in a 125-lap feature. The second weekend, Octrober 13, will feature the Kool Seal Challenge Series in a $5000 to-win 250 lap main event.

"Our drivers have expressed a great desire to race on the super-fast high banks at Newport Speedway," said Terry Treadwell, ARA President. "This way, fans will have a chance to see both of the ARA touring programs on back-to-back weekends in big special events."

The Thunder in the Mountains weekends will allow local Newport Speedway drivers to showcase their talents against the ARA touring professionals. The Newport Super Late Model division is comparable to the ARA Southern Thunder cars racing on October 6. The Newport Late Model division drivers can face off against the ARA Kool Seal Challenge Series on October 13.

The ARA Kool Seal Challenge Series race scheduled for October 13 at Galaxy Kingsport Speedway was cancelled to make room on the schedule for the Thunder in the Mountains events.

Gates open at 4pm each Friday for special practice sessions. On Saturdays, practice begins at 2pm. Time trials are set for 5:30pm. A special driver autograph session will precede the 7:30pm feature race starts.
