Dirt late model stars Scott Bloomquist and Duayne Hommel are among more than 50 drivers expected to compete in the Golden Corral Dirt Late Model Championship Saturday night, Sept. 13, at The Dirt Track @ Lowe¿s Motor Speedway.

Sanctioned by the O¿Reilly Southern All Star Racing Series, the event will be highlighted by a 40-lap feature with $10,000 earmarked for the winner.

Bloomquist, who recorded his 400th career feature victory earlier this season, has been a dominant force in dirt late model racing for more than 20 years. The 39-year-old racer from Mooresburg, Tenn., has one victory at The Dirt Track @ Lowe¿s Motor Speedway, a $34,000 triumph in the 75-lap finale of One Cool Cookout on July 3, 2000.

Hommel appears en route to his second consecutive Southern All Star dirt late model championship. The 25-year-old resident of Newport, Tenn., has visited victory lane nine times this season and holds an 18-point advantage over Clint Smith heading into the 21st event on the 29-race schedule.

The Golden Corral Dirt Late Model Championship includes heat races, last-chance qualifiers and the 40-lap feature for dirt late models. There will be no times trials as drivers will draw for heat race starting positions. Legends Cars are also on the card.

The event will be held in conjunction with the Sept. 11-14 Food Lion AutoFair, the world¿s largest automotive extravaganza, at Lowe¿s Motor Speedway.

Tickets are only $18 in advance for adults and $5 for children 12 and under and can be obtained by calling 1-800-455-FANS or online at www.charlottemotorspeedway.com. Adult tickets will be $2 more the day of the event. Parking for all events at The Dirt Track is free.
