2015 Super Bowl of Racing at Golden Isles Speedway Now Includes "Edwin Coggins Memorial"


WAYCROSS, GA (December 1, 2014) - Golden Isles Speedway officials have added a third event to the Super Bowl of Racing to kick off the 2015 season. The "Edwin Coggins Memorial" will now be the opening event of the Super Bowl of Racing, on Thursday, February 5th. The event will feature a 30 lap race paying $7,000 to win at Golden Isles Speedway, in Brunswick, GA.



The "Edwin Coggins Memorial" was added to the Super Bowl of Racing in honor of Mr. Edwin Coggins of Valdosta, GA. Mr Coggins passed away at Golden Isles Speedway at last year's Super Bowl of Racing. Mr. Coggins was a long time supporter of dirt track racing, Golden Isles Speedway and racers from the South Georgia area. Mr. Coggins and his family own the Coggins Farms and Produce Company, based in Lake Park, GA. The Coggins family asked Golden Isles Speedway promoter, Darryl Courson to add this event as a way to pay tribute to the late Edwin Coggins.



"Mr. Coggins was a big supporter of GIS and loved dirt track racing. The Coggins family felt it was the best way to remember him, by putting on a special memorial race in his honor. The Coggins family will be attending the event and making a special presentation to GIS at the event - in his memory. Everyone at GIS is honored to add this event to the Super Bowl of Racing to remember a great man and great friend to so many people in the dirt racing community", stated Darryl Courson, General Manager, Golden Isles Speedway.



Thursday's "Edwin Coggins Memorial" will include a complete show featuring the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series with Miller Welders Time Trials, LOLMDS Heat Races, B-Mains and the 30-lap feature event. As a support class to the LOLMDS, Golden Isles Speedway will run an un-sanctioned 25-lap $1,500 to win Southern Thunder Rules Late Model show on Thursday night. Following the Thursday night activities, Golden Isles Speedway will open the track to any and all divisions for an open practice.



Ticket prices for the Edwin Coggins Memorial are $20 for General Admission, $30 for Pits and $30 for Track side parking with a pit pass. RV Camping spots are $35 per night. Kids 8-12 will be $5 for general admission or pits with kids 7 and under - free in both general admission and pits.
