ASCS SOUTHERN TOUR TAKES TO DILLON ASPHALT ON SATURDAY

TULSA, Okla. (September 17, 2007) -- The American Sprint Car Series Southern Tour hits the asphalt for one last time this season on Saturday night as the series makes its second stop of the year at Dillon Motor Speedway in Dillon, SC.

The ASCS Southern Tour made its asphalt debut in June. After Bryn Gohn won the first asphalt race in ASCS history, Florida's Kenny Adams reached victory lane in the series first stop atop the semi-banked, 4/10-mile Dillon Motor Speedway asphalt oval on June 9.

With four victories in ASCS Southern Tour action this year and five overall ASCS wins, Adams will try to add another win this Saturday night along with his stepson Gohn.

Among those trying to keep the Malabar, FL, duo out of asphalt victory lane will be current ASCS Southern Tour points leader Brian Smith of Mooresville, NC. With a July 14 victory at Fayetteville Motor Speedway to his credit, Smith currently holds a 166-point lead over Cherryville, North Carolina's Johnny Bridges in the series championship points race.

North Carolina's David Adkins and Florida's T.J. Winegardner enter Saturday's event tied for third in points, with Adams fifth and Gohn sixth.

Qualifying gets under way at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, with racing action to follow at 7:30 p.m.

Dillon Motor Speedway is located in Dillon, SC, off I-95 Exit 193, then west. For more information, contact the track at 843-774-1888.
