Mr. Holt,

In your press release you have stated the ASA cars are Super Late Models where in fact they are closer to Limited Late Models. I think you may want to correct that, people want the truth, not deception.

I think the ASA Late Models might be about .5 second off the super late model times. Though you should feel a big difference in the horsepower, it's not bad considering the price difference on the motor itself. I know times may differ, since all super late model series have their own set of rules. Not sure of the tire rule, but at the Snowball this past year the times of the super late models and the Pro Late Models were pretty close, some were even faster. Here are some track qualifying records that the CRA Series and the ASALM's race on.

 

TRACK______________________________CRA_______________ASALM__

 

I-70_Speedway (.543)_________________16.297____________ 16.692__

IRP (.686) _________________________ 21.620____________ 22.333__

Mansfield Motor Speedway (.440)________ 15.729____________ 16.793__

Berlin Raceway (.438) ________________ 16.306____________ 16.714__

Illiana Motor Speedway (.500)___________19.020____________ 19.731__

Shady Bowl Speedway (.300)___________ 13.180____________ 13.490__

Rockford_Speedway (.250)_____________13.105____________ 13.569__

 

The Old ASA National Tour was about a second off the Super Late Model times. The SAS Late Models are also over a second off, a lot more different package.

The ASA LM weight minimum is 2700 lbs with driver. 58% left side weight. That's pretty light, and contributes to their fast times.

Radial tires vs. bias ply tires.

 

USRA SLM is 2875 lbs for 9 to 1 compression motors and steel-headed motors.

 

CRA minimum weight ranges from 2800 to 2850 depending on motor combos.

 

 

With the ASA LM being so light, their lap times should still be quick later in the race on worn tires.

Greg's Davidson's Limited Late Model came out third! Good run. Casey Smith was a rocket using that sealed engine, seems like the way to go. At the Snowball Clay Roger's and Bobby Gill finished in the top five using sealed engines and the only other one using a sealed engine was Landon Cassill. He was in third place with 20 laps to go, but got spun finishing 18th.

It was a sealed motor from an approved vendor, 590 horsepower. Nice to see Dickerson move on without HMP. He has dropped the bomb on October 21 with another ASA race. Just so happens, it is the same day as the Space City 125. Crap, cant watch both of them.
