ASCS Rebel Region Doubles Up This Weekend

TULSA, Okla. (August 26, 2008) -- Florida's Kenny Adams tries to move a couple of steps closer to the American Sprint Car Series Rebel Region championship as the series fires to action for a pair of events this weekend.

On Friday night, the series makes an encore appearance at Northwest Florida Speedway in Baker, FL. Then on Saturday night, it's across the state line to the high banks of Deep South Speedway in Loxley, AL.

Adams opened up the 2008 ASCS Rebel Region season with a win at Loxley's Deep South Speedway on February 9, the first of four Rebel scores for Adams this season. Tennessee's Don Young topped the initial ASCS stop at Northwest Florida Speedway in June.

Adams carries a 70-point lead into the weekend over Daytona Beach's Matt Tiffany, a June 21 winner at Swainsboro, GA. Tiffany is just 20 points ahead of Adams' stepson Bryn Gohn, with 19-year-old Washington-state native Samantha Taylor and Winter Park, FL, veteran shoe Red Stauffer rounding out the current top five in series points.

Friday's action at Northwest Florida Speedway goes green at 8:00 p.m., with Saturday's Deep South Speedway card firing off at 7:00 p.m.

The high-banked, 3/8-mile Northwest Florida Speedway clay oval is located ten miles north of Baker, FL, 0.6 miles north of CR 2 on SR 189. For more information, contact the track at 850-978-2142 or 850-546-0157.

Deep South Speedway is located in Loxley, AL, off I-10 Exit 44, then four miles north on SR 59, then 3/4-miles west. For more information contact the track at 251-964-6953. The ASCS Rebel Region is currently slated for 17 nights of action at 15 different tracks throughout Georgia, Florida, Alabama, North Carolina and Mississippi in 2008.
