Bakersfield, CA – Since 1974, South Alabama Speedway has been the host to “The Rattler 250”, one of the nation’s marquee Super Late Model events. For 2023, “The Rattler” will take place on the weekend of March 18th and be sanctioned by the “SRL National”.
“We can’t thank John Dykes and his family enough for allowing the SRL to come in and oversee their biggest event of the year,” stated the SRL’s Ricky Brooks. “I’ve been working “The Rattler” with John for over 10 years now and it’s become one of the biggest Super Late Model events on the annual calendar.”
The 47th running of “The Rattler” will feature with “The Baby Rattler” on Saturday for Pro Late Models and “The Rattler 250” for Super Late Models on Sunday which will pay $15,000 to win and $1,600 to start. The weekend will also feature local classes that compete at SAS.
The list of past “Rattler” champions is a who’s who of Super Late Model racing. Top of the list is five-time winner Ty Majeski (2022, 2021, 2020, 2017, 2016), Harrison Burton (2018), Christopher Bell (2015), Casey Roderick (2014), Bubba Pollard (2012), Jeff Fultz (2010), plus Augie Grill, Ronnie Sanders, Dave Mader III, Mike Alexander and Pete Hamilton back in 1975, the list goes on and on.
The ‘SRL National’ is a national tour for Super Late Model competitors, sanctioning events from coast to coast, including marquee events such as the $25,000 to win “All-Star Showdown” at Southern California’s Irwindale Speedway, the $30,000 to win “Battle at Berlin” and now “The Rattler 250”.
