First Look! The Sirius Speedway/Bea's Gift Baskets.com Super Late Model
Race day is just 24 hours away, and the Sirius Speedway/Bea's Gift Baskets.com #30 Chevrolet is ready to roll. Warren Hamilton of ASM Graphics installed the awesome vinyl graphics last night, putting the finishing touches on a build that was completed -- from bare chassis to race-ready -- in just 12 days.
If Mother Nature is willing, the Godfather Motorsports team will practice at Hickory Motor Speedway today from 4-7 PM ET, then be back at the track when the pit gates open at 11 AM Saturday to begin preparations for the Pro All Stars Series "Easter Bunny 150." Time trial qualifying begins at 5 PM, with racing beginning at 6:30.
"It's been an amazing two weeks," said Godfather Motorsports co-owner Jim Gallison, Jr. "The boys have worked their tails off to get this car finished, and I couldn't be happier with the finished product. First races are always an adventure, but with a little luck, I think we'll have something for them Saturday night!"
"We could not have done this without the amazing support of our technical and marketing partners," said GFM co-owner Dave Moody. "Bea’s Gift Baskets.com came on board this week, and David and Bea Alexander are as excited about this team as we are! Our friends and supporters at Eibach Springs, JRI Shock Absorbers, Wilwood Brakes, C&R Racing Inc., Five Star Race Car Bodies, Dynotech Engineering, RaceCom of Virginia, ASM Graphics and X-Flex Racers Tape have just been awesome, and we could not have pulled this off without them."
Join us Saturday night for the debut of the #30 Super Late Model and help root driver Mike Rowe to the front of the field!
