Who will be the King of the Short Track?

The ASA Late Model Series Presented by GM Performance Parts will close out the 2008 season with a blockbuster event at the Memphis Motorsports Park ???The King???s Ransom 300???. This all division all team invitational will be held on November 14th and 15th and is sure to be one of the most memorable events of the season.

Top teams from every division past and present are likely to throw their hat in the ring at this top event. The King???s Ransom unlike any other ASALMS event in the history will be 300 laps. It will be held at the Memphis Motorsports Park following The NASCAR Nationwide Series Kroger On Track For The Cure 250 (October 24-25)

Memphis Motorsports Park has established itself as one of the most popular and versatile racing facilities in the country, playing host to more than 200 events a year, including the best that NASCAR and NHRA have to offer.

The ASA Late Model Series now in it???s 6th year of racing will offer the teams one of the best Season Finales in Short Track Racing. The event will be on a bias ply tire to help event the playing field for all divisions as well as teams that have never competed with the series. With so many tracks and other series using a modification of our rules package we will be able to accommodate most teams within the late model Circuit.

This is a great chance for ASALMS teams to go up against some other series top teams and take the top spot as a late model Champ without division. All late model Champions of the 2008 season no matter what series or division are invited to participate. All Champions that meet the criteria will be gifted with a guaranteed provisional to start the event.

The King???s Ransom will take us all to a higher level; higher stakes, higher purse and most of all the highest title of the season ???The King of Short Track Racing???. Whoever wins this event will take the title that spans beyond their domain, the best of the best; Champion against Champion.

It is a pleasure to announce that Stephen Leicht our 2005 Champion will return to compete for this title. Stephen has made his name in the world of racing through sheer determination and flawless skill. Stephen Leicht will join Jeff Burton as the co-driver of Richard Childress Racing???s No. 29 Holiday Inn Chevrolet team for the 2009 NASCAR Nationwide Series season.

The ASALMS will work with all series and tracks to ensure that a wide variety of competitors can come out and compete in an equal playing field. We look forward to making this an annual event and tradition that can mark the end of each season.

The King???s Ransom 300 will also mark the 3rd event in the O???Reilly's Triple Crown Challenge. The O???Reilly???s Triple Crown Challenge was a three event Challenge that offered any team that could win all three events a chance at $100,000 payout. Sean Murphy of SS Green Light Racing has won the 1st two events; O???Reilly???s Raceway Park in April and Salem Speedway in July. The final event of the Triple Crown will be at Memphis Motorsports Park.
