Spring Nationals Series 2023 Race Season Starts At Swainsboro & Senoia March 3rd-4th

Story By: RYAN DELPH / SPRING NATIONALS SERIES – BRASSTOWN, NC – The tenth edition of the Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series presented by Coltman Farms Racing and fueled by Sunoco is scheduled to kick off in a big way over the March 3-4 weekend in the Peach State.

A pair of $10,053 first place prizes are up for grabs for the series competitors on Friday night at Swainsboro Raceway in Swainsboro, Georgia and on Saturday evening at Senoia Raceway in Senoia, Georgia. Drivers will look to get off to a hot start on the 16-race miniseries, as an additional $10,053 payday is earmarked for the 2023 Spring Nationals Champion!

At Swainsboro Raceway on Friday, March 3, the pit gates will open at 3:00pm with the grandstands slated to open at 4:30pm. The Driver’s Meeting will commence at 5:30pm, while hot laps will take to the racetrack promptly at 6:00pm. Adult admission will be $30.00 into the grandstands and $45.00 into the pit area. Kids ages 6-11 will be admitted into the grandstands for only $25.00 and into the pits for only $35.00.

Brandon Overton, of Evans, Georgia, is the lone Spring Nationals winner at Swainsboro Raceway, as he took home the win in 2022 over a top five that included runner-up Michael Page, Mark Whitener, Dalton Cook, and Ashton Winger. Joining the ground-pounding Super Late Models this Friday evening will be the 604 Late Model ($1,000 to win), 602 Late Model ($700 to win), Street Stock ($600 to win), Road Warrior ($500 to win), Crown Vic Pro ($100 to win), and Crown Vic Jr. ($100 to win) divisions. The ‘Crank It Up 100’ at Swainsboro also has an open practice session planned for Thursday, March 2 from 6:00pm-9:00pm.

At Senoia Raceway on Saturday, March 4, the pit gates will swing open for race teams at 2:00pm and the grandstands will start to allow patrons into the storied facility at 4:00pm. The Driver’s Meeting is scheduled for 4:30pm, hot laps will begin at 5:00pm, and racing will start at approximately 7:00pm. Grandstand admission will be $30.00 for adults and FREE for children ages 12 and under. Pit admission will be $40.00 for adults, $20.00 for children ages 6-12, and FREE for kids ages 5 and under.

This Saturday’s visit to Senoia will mark the ninth series race on the gray gumbo and the winner’s list reads as a virtual “who’s who” in the sport of Dirt Late Model racing. Jonathan Davenport (’16), Chris Madden (’16), Michael Page (’17), Donald McIntosh (’17), Scott Bloomquist (’18), Dale McDowell (’18), Chris Madden (’19), and Shane Clanton (’22) have all reached Spring Nationals victory lane at the track owned by the Pollard family. Joining the Super Late Models on the racing card at the Atlanta-area venue will be the 604 Crate, 602 Late Model, 602 Charger, Hobby, Mini Stock, Bomber, and Hot Shot classes.

In addition to the $10,053 paycheck in the 53-lap feature, the Super Late Model competitors will also be gunning for a $200 Fast Time Award during qualifying courtesy of JCLH Photography.

The first two rounds of the Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series presented by Coltman Farms Racing and fueled by Sunoco schedule on March 3-4 at Swainsboro and Senoia will feature a complete show of Group A & B qualifying, heat races, consolation events, and a 53-lap headliner.
