ASCS SOUTHERN TOUR TO LAURENS COUNTY ON SATURDAY

TULSA, Okla. (May 1, 2007) -- Action continues for the American Sprint Car Series Southern Tour this Saturday night as the series takes to the "Darlington of the Dirt Tracks", the high-banked, 3/8-mile Laurens County Speedway dirt oval in Laurens, SC.

And with nearly 200 feature wins over the course of his career, Kenny Adams of Malabar, FL, leads the way into Laurens County Speedway after scoring his first ASCS Southern Tour in this past weekend's season opener versus the ASCS Mid-Atlantic Region at Virginia Motor Speedway.

Adams closest current ASCS Southern Tour championship contender is Johnny Bridges, who finished third in Saturday's opener. Bridges, who fell just five points shy of the '06 ASCS Southern Tour title, topped last year's series event at Laurens County Speedway.

Adams owns a feature win at Laurens County as well, racing to victory lane in a 2005 event atop the high-banked speedplant.

Saturday's card, which is slated to go green at 8:00 p.m., marks the second of 17 nights of action for the ASCS Southern Tour in 2007 at a dozen different tracks throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and Georgia.
