HARDEEVILLE, S.C. (June 5, 2001) - Six exciting divisions are scheduled to compete during Hardeeville Motor Speedway's Lowcountry Concrete Night on Saturday. The classes of machines ready to battle include the O.C. Welch Ford-Lincoln-Mercury Late Models, four classes of Legends Cars, Street Stocks, Mini Stocks, Open Wheel Modifieds and Bandolero Cars.

Lowcountry Concrete is excited to be sponsoring the racing action from the Hardeeville Motor Speedway and looks forward to an eventful evening of racing with hopefully very few incidents involving the racecars and the concrete walls. Lowcountry Concrete employees will be on hand, and the infield will be decorated with two of Lowcountry Concrete's trucks.

Hardeeville's Chris Beach won his fifth race of the season last Saturday night in the O.C. Welch Ford-Lincoln-Mercury Late Models, taking over the lead on lap nine and never relinquishing the top spot the rest of the evening. Tommy Porter Jr. of Savannah, who has won four events in 2001, finished second, with Skeeter Godbee of Sylvania, Ga. finishing off the podium positions with third place.

Mark Terry of Rincon, Ga. pounded the concrete wall coming out of turn four two weeks ago, but was able to return last week with a new car. The new car also gave Terry a new attitude, as he headed to the front and won his fourth race this season. Terry, who had dropped to the third position in the Mini Stocks points standings, moves back into second place, trailing leader Steven Moore of St. George, S.C. by only 20 points.

The Open Wheel Modifieds return this weekend after taking a few weeks off to regroup in preparation for their upcoming race. Raef Judd of Charleston, S.C. leads the points standings by 18 points over Dan Schultz of Beaufort, S.C.

Grandstands open at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday. The green flag waves at 5:30 p.m. for qualifying races. Feature races are set to begin at 7:30 p.m. Hardeeville Motor Speedway is located three miles southeast of I-95 on Highway 17. Ticket prices are $10 for adults, with reduced rates for seniors, military and children. Children under five are admitted free. Information is available at www.hardeevillespeedway.com or by calling (843) 784-RACE. Come check out the action at Hardeeville Motor Speedway!
