Racing America to Broadcast Mobile Speedway Reopening
Jun 30, 2023
The excitement for the reopening of Mobile International Speedway got cranked up a notch when Hueytown, Alabama's Augie Grill filed an entry for Saturday night's Pro Late Model race.
Grill's racing resume is legendary amongst Late Model racers, two Snowball Derby wins as a driver, three as a crew chief plus three in a Modified, five Alabama 200 wins, three Snowflake 100 wins, two Show Me the Money championships, over a dozen Late Model wins at Mobile and was last seen on National TV whipping a star-studded field during All Star weekend at North Wilkesboro Speedway.
"Really excited to be coming back to Mobile, we've had a lot of success there and it's always great racing," said Grill. "I'm looking forward to the new promoter, Eddie Shoemaker, bringing the Speedway back to life."
In order for Grill to add to his racing resume on Saturday night he will have to deal with a strong contingent of local drivers led by Mobile's Dustin Smith. Smith has logged more miles in a Late Model this season than any other Mobile driver with starts in Opp, Pensacola, Montgomery, Georgia and North Carolina.
"Pumped about having Grill race with us this weekend, I like racing against the best and he's one of the best," offered Smith. "I'm really fired up about my home track opening back up. Lot of hard work is going on at the Speedway and we are gonna have a great show Saturday night."
