One race remains before the much-anticipated AKRA American Sprint Cup Series Grand National Championship Oct. 21-23 at the 103rd Street Sports Complex in Jacksonville, FL.
AKRA officials are looking forward to once again seeing our Southern Tour friends after a summer of four “Northern Tour” events in New York, the Midwest and Maryland. The Southern Tour has been off since the last weekend of April when Round 2 was held at Lamar County Speedway in Barnesville, GA.
The opening rounds of the Southern Tour at Barnesville and Kershaw, SC, have set up a number of tight points battles that will be decided at Bushnell Motorsports Park.
The Boon & Sons 206 Kid Kart division shows Georgia’s Peyton Bridges 20 points ahead of Brently Miller. Both Peyton and Brently have two wins on the season with the difference being Peyton finished P2 twice while Brently has finishes of P2 and P3. Rachel Richter is third in the standings.
