The new king of the road in Pro Late Model qualifying at Lanier National Speedway in Braselton, Ga. is 24-year old Peter Petropoulos.

After claiming his third consecutive fast qualifier award last Saturday, the driver from Flowery Branch just outside of Atlanta is poised to put his No. 28 Battle Builders, Inc. Chevrolet in victory lane at what is arguably one of the toughest short tracks in the NASCAR Dodge Weekly Racing Series.

Coming off a fourth place run in last Saturday's 50-lap feature which included an impressive 24 cars in the starting grid, Petropoulos said he and his crew are loaded with confidence.

"Three poles is just awesome," said Petropoulos.  "The team is so excited.
It's like having a win.  That's what we're looking for now, that win."

Petropoulos hopes to claim his first and second career Pro Late Model wins at Lanier National Speedway on Saturday June 28. Due to several rainouts earlier in the season, the track will run two 25-lap features instead of the normal 50 laps.

"I'm excited about this weekend," said Petropoulos. "I really like the opportunity to get to run two races."

Petropoulos and the Battle Paint and Drywall team are also eagerly anticipated the 100-lap pro late model feature at Lanier on Friday July 4.
