(Brunswick, GA) Officials at Golden Isles Speedway announced today that Winston Cup driver, Bill Elliott would be competing at Golden Isles Speedway on February 2nd for the $10,000 to win final leg of the Lucas Oil Products Late Model Triple Crown Series.

"Bill has committed to running our show at Golden Isles Speedway on February 2nd as long as his Winston Cup test session is not rained out, or the team believes they have had a successful test session on Friday and Saturday at Talladega Superspeedway, "comments Arlene Pittman, owner/promoter of Golden Isles Speedway. "We are very thrilled to have Bill's commitment to come back to Brunswick, scheduling permitting. Myself, along with Ray Cook and Bill tested together last week here, and we are delighted that Bill will be competing this time," states Pittman, who also competes on the NASCAR Goody's Dash Series.

Last week, Bill took time out of his busy schedule to fly down to Golden Isles Speedway with dirt late model driver, Ray Cook for a private test session with Arlene Pittman. Elliott produced very quick speeds behind the wheel of his #9 GRT dirt car.

Golden Isles Speedway will be the final stop for the Lucas Oil Georgia State Super Late Model Triple Crown Series with a 40 lap $10,000 to win main event. Oglethorpe Speedway in Savannah, GA will play host to the first leg of the Lucas Oil sponsored events with a 40 lap $5,000 to win feature event, and Waycross Speedway in Waycross, GA will be the second stop for the Lucas Oil Triple Crown Series with another 40 lap $5,000 to win event.

Lucas Oil Products, the title sponsor for the Georgia State Super Late Model Triple Crown Series is based out of Corona, CA and enjoys motorsports sponsorship on many different levels. More recently, Lucas Oil Products became the primary sponsor for the Dunn-Benson Motorsports team with dirt late model driving sensation, Earl Pearson, Jr. The former 1997 Hav-A-Tampa Rookie of the Year, Earl Pearson, Jr. will also be competing in the Lucas Oil Georgia State Super Late Model Triple Crown Series before heading to Florida for Speedweeks.

Pearson, a native of Jacksonville, FL has also enjoyed some big wins on the Georgia short tracks with his first-ever national sanctioned victory coming in the former Hav-A-Tampa Series at Waycross Speedway. Pearson practically cut his teeth on the lightning fast ovals in Brunswick and Waycross winning numerous feature events on both tracks during the past 10 years. Dunn- Benson Motorsports team owner Carlton Lamm has fielded cars for numerous famed drivers over the past 30 years including the likes of former Winston Cup winning drivers Morgan Shepard and Kyle Petty, as well as former Hav-A- Tampa and Southern All-Stars Champion Clint Smith and other short track aces including Rodney Combs, Jeff Smith and a long list of other winning competitors.
