Brandon Umberger, Rural Retreat and David Smith, Inman, SC both have won National events at Wythe and each would have to be considered “favorites” for the win. Two different styles of driving with Umberger making it exciting with his high, wide and outside style of driving. Smith is extremely smooth and calculates each and every move on the track and is always there at the end. Dennis “Rambo” Franklin, Gaffney, SC has won many Late Model events at Wythe and will certainly be a factor along with Ron “the Bull” Parker, Bellwood, NC. Local competitors, Lance Reynolds, Max Meadows with three wins this season along with Teddy Tate, Rural Retreat, Jensen Ford, Piney Flats, TN, Tim Byrd, Jonesborough, TN and Trevor Cregger all have won races at Wythe this year. Mount Airy, North Carolina’s Ryan Atkins  and Rural Retreat’s Daniel Baggerly will be in the hunt. Also expected are several drivers from the Northeast FASTRAK racing division that will be able to put the pressure on the local drivers. The 60 lap event will have pit stop on lap 31 which may shake up the standing. Who will be able to make the right changes to their car to win?
Super Street, Modifieds, UCAR, Pro Mini and Ucar2 will all be in action after several weeks of not racing.

There has certainly been a lot of hype leading up to the Pro (crate) Late Model Nationals at the 1/2mile Wythe Raceway owned by two of the most respected Pioneers in the Dirt Racing universe Fred & Susan Brown who have kept the facility under operation as the only owners handling the track for 40+ years and there’s no stopping them yet. They’ve had a long lasting relationship with Stan Lester whose vision created the FASTRAK Racing Series which is now in its 10th consecutive year of operation in 2013.

Once the 24 car field is set and special driver Introductions are complete the A-Main Feature race will consist of 60 laps total distance with the always exciting double file starts/restarts and choose rule in place. On Lap 31 when the entire field has cycled around for halfway the caution will be given to the field and the FASTRAK machines will then make they’re Pit Stops on the front straight in front of the fans. FASTRAK will then be calling out what the teams are doing to the cars, what adjustments they are making, shocks, air pressure, wedge, etc. (DRIVERS & TEAMS CAN DO ANYTHING THEY WANT TO THE CARS DURING THE PIT STOP BUT IF THEY CHANGE TIRE(S) THEY HAVE TO GO TO REAR OF LEAD LAP FOR THE RESTART!!)
