UARA-Stars heads north for first trip to Lonesome Pine Raceway
Hendersonville, NC. (June 11, 2003) - With six races completed of the sixteen scheduled for the 2003 season, the Stars of UARA head north for their first trip of the season to Lonesome Pine Raceway. Since the first six races of the tour were held in the south, some of the Northern Late Model Stock drivers a chance to compete in one of the fastest growing touring divisions today. The Advance Auto Parts / Hobart 150 is set for Saturday, June 21, with qualifying set for 6:00 p.m. and racing to begin at 8:00 p.m.
The UARA-Stars Late Model Series has had a strong car count with an average of 26 cars. With the strong support of local Late Models at Lonesome Pine, this race is anticipated to be one of the most exciting races for the Stars drivers this year. A host of talented local drivers should make things difficult for the tour drivers. "Its always hard to come into a mans backyard and beat him at his own game," said Brian Vance, UARA Competition Director. Point leader Lee Tissot and a host of other touring drivers will have their hands full when the green flag waves.
Grundy, VA driver Keith Stiltner is sure to be a fan favorite at Lonesome Pine. This track is where Keith got his start in racing and "he knows how to get around the Pine," said Vance. Keith has won a couple championships at Lonesome Pine and this makes his second full season with the UARA-Stars. Stiltner comes into this race forth in the series points and is hopeful for a good finish to increase his point's standings.
Also scheduled to race will be the Lonesome Pine Legends, Pro Challenge, Mini-Stocks, Pure Fours, and Grand Stocks. "The drivers' autograph session will begin at 7:00 pm on the front straight away so show up early to meet all the drivers," concluded Vance.
Rain Date scheduled for Sunday June 22nd.
