Bradley McCaskill has his sights set on Colt James and the $1,000 bounty that has been placed on James heading into Saturday night’s Spooktacular at Southern National Motorsports Park.
McCaskill has plenty of experience at Southern National Motorsports Park and is a former winner of the Limited Late Model portion of the Spooktacular. This weekend, he will compete in the Fast Five Pro Late Model doubleheader and he has every expectation of outrunning James, who has won the last eight consecutive Pro Late Model races.
“Looking forward to racing against Colt,” McCaskill said. “I hope we can be the team that finally knocks him off his throne. He will be really tough to beat and he is smart with his car and how he races.”
McCaskill will be bringing the car he has been competing with in PASS South and CARS Super Late Model competition. Earlier this year, he ran in a PASS race at Southern National, but a flat right rear tire derailed his performance and relegated him to a 10th place finish.
With his experience at the 4/10-mile track, McCaskill has plenty of confidence.
“Colt really has a handle on his car right now,” McCaskill explained. “I feel confident that we can get our car to work as good as his. It will be interesting to see how the motor combinations run against each other. Plus, there are twins to throw another twist in there. Who goes hard the first race versus who saves for the second race.”
Along with the Pro Late Model, McCaskill is hoping he can compete in the Limited Late Model race as well – but as of now, he is unsure if he will be able to. If he is able to race, he will compete in a Late Model ordinarily driven by Ronald Renfrow.
“I hope there are good turnouts for both divisions,” McCaskill concluded. “Looks like there is good money up for grabs this weekend.”
Saturday’s Spooktacular will get underway at 6pm EST and is headlined by twin 75-lap duels for the Pro Late Models and a 100-lap Limited Late Model race. The Spooktacular will also feature racing for Chargers, Mini Stocks, Legends, Bandoleros and Any Cars.
