While most tracks are bringing an end to their racing season, Cochran Motor Speedway is kicking their year into high gear. From track improvements to new sponsors to exciting new events, the Georgia oval has some exciting things in store for fans and racers alike in November and December.
On November 28-30 the annual Gobbler 100 roars to life with a new look. Super Late Models battle for $5,000 to win on Friday and $15,000 to win on Saturday. Many of the sport’s top Dirt Late Model pilots have already voiced an interest in participating in the mega event. Driver’s showing interest include Billy Moyer, Brandon Overton, Dale McDowell, Scott Bloomquist, Kyle Bronson, and more.
Joining the Gobbler 100 weekend card are 602 Topless Late Model Sportsman ($5,000 to win), Crate Late Models ($2,000 to win) on both Friday and Saturday Night, Bombers ($1,000 to win), Pure Stocks ($1,000 to win), 440/Hot Shots/SCDRA ($1,000 to win), and Hobby Stocks (possible $2,000 to win).
The season then draws to a close in Grand Style with the Arizona Sport Shirts Durrence Layne Chevrolet World Championship on December 26-28. The weekend is highlighted by Durrence Layne Crate Late Models pursuing a $10,000 top prize. Meanwhile, the Durrence Layne Street Stocks will set their sights on a $5,000 winner’s check.
With both of these events rapidly drawing near, Cochran Motor Speedway is excited to announce that Arizona Sport Shirts has signed on as a sponsor for both events as well as the title sponsor for the Durrence Layne Chevrolet World Championship.
“Not only are we excited about our two massive events to end the season, but we are also thrilled to have Arizona Sport Shirts coming on board as a sponsor of both races. Gerald Newton and his staff are the best at what they do, and it means a lot to have their support,” Cochran Speedway owner, Chris Martin said.
Early registration for both events as well as a limited number of camping spots and vendor spots are available by visiting www.CochranSpeedway.com.
Last but not least, the Cochran Motor Speedway staff are in the process of adding new dirt to the track surface. Mother Nature has hampered their efforts over the past few weeks, but the new surface will be race-ready for the Gobbler 100.
