PENDERGRASS, GA (Sept. 14, 2001) - With an eye to the future, the American Racing Association (ARA) has finalized the remainder of the 2001 season schedules for the Kool Seal Challenge and Southern Thunder Late Model racing programs.

"The addition of new race tracks that likely will have dates on the 2002 calendar gives us great optimism for closing the 2001 season on a successful note, and give us a preview of next season," says ARA President Terry Treadwell. "We are very excited about these new opportunities for our teams, sponsors and fans."

The schedule resumes with the Kool Seal Twin 125s doubleheader Saturday, Sept. 22 at Peach State Speedway in Jefferson, GA. Both the Kool Seal Challenge and Southern Thunder series will run 125-lap features, which were rained out on Sept. 2.

A 250-lap feature at Galaxy Kingsport (TN) Speedway on Oct. 13 replaces the Hickory (NC) Fall Brawl on the Kool Seal Challenge schedule. Races at new venues for the ARA Kool Seal Challenge Series include Nov. 3 at Riverview Speedway Park in Carthage, TN, and Dec. 2 at Hardeeville (SC) Speedway will complete the 2001 Kool Seal Challenge Series schedule.

"The new owners at Hickory decided to make the Fall Brawl a non-sanctioned race, and feature their local drivers," Treadwell says, "but we are already talking to them about hosting ARA events again in 2002."

The Southern Thunder Series also includes a race at a new venue - Oct. 6 at Newport, TN. The Oct. 27-28 World Crown 200 at Peach State Speedway and the Alabama 300 Nov. 10-11 at Montgomery (AL) Motor Speedway have been confirmed. The final event of the Southern Thunder season will be a 125-lap feature at Peach State Speedway on Saturday, Nov. 24.
