Week 28 Durrence Layne Chevrolet Late Model Division races this Saturday night will be held at Camden Speedway, Southern Raceway in Milton, FL, and at Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, AL. Looking ahead, the lone Week 29 race will be held at 81 Speedway in Wichita, KS, and will be co-sanctioned with NCRA.
Drivers racing in Durrence Layne Weekly Racing Series events compete for both a Track point fund and a National point fund. Drivers compete against drivers racing at Durrence Layne Racing sanctioned tracks across the country using a National points system over a 29-week season that concludes on October 13.
A driver’s best 14 weekly point totals count as their season total. Once a driver reaches 14 weeks of competition, they start trying to net points by replacing the lowest weekly total among their best 14 weekly totals with a higher one. A driver can only count their best point total each week as their total for that week.
The top ten drivers in the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Late Model Division National point standings will earn a seat at the Durrence Layne Racing Annual Awards Banquet to receive a point fund check and a trophy, with the National Champion Shannon Lee pocketing $10,000.
