Hillbilly 100 qualifier tonight at BMP

BECKLEY — Any Super Late Model race driver would like a chance to compete in the Hillbilly 500.

The race, set for Labor Day weekend in Ripley, will pay a cool $25,000 to the winner.

Tonight, Beckley Motorsports Park will give a driver a chance to get in that race with its Hillbilly 100 qualifier.

“The winner gets $1,500 and a guaranteed starting spot in the Hillbilly 100,” BMP track manager Joe Jackson said. “Only 24 cars are in that race.”

Competition for that spot should be fierce tonight at the 3/8th-mile, oval dirt track in Prosperity. The Super Lates are not just competitive, but they bring a strong fan base.

All other classes — AMRA Modifieds, Fastrak Crates, Outlaw Modifieds, Street Stocks and Hornets — will also run tonight.

Gates will open at 4 p.m., with racing to begin at 7 p.m. General admission is $15. Kids ages 6-10 will pay $6, while those 5 and under get in free. Pit passes are $30.

Famed NASCAR driver Kenny Schrader will return to Beckley next week for two appearances. He will race his AMRA Modified car Friday, and on Saturday, will be part of a special promotion that will allow a lucky winner to ride with him at BMP in his special two-seater car.

The drawing for the ride with Schrader will be held tonight. Tickets can be bought at the track or at Daddy Rabbit Graphics on Ragland Road.
