Young Gavin Graham Stepping into His Own at Five Flags Behind a Curt Britt Pro Truck 

Young Gavin Graham Stepping into His Own at Five Flags Behind a Curt Britt Pro Truck    By Chuck Corder  Walking around the pits, Gavin Graham casts an unassuming shadow.  Low-key and out of his fire suit, the 13-year-old Graham looks like your garden-variety teenager. With a mouthful of braces and a frame he is still growing into, you wouldn’t know that the Lakeland teen is one of the hottest hotshoes in short-track racing.  The relatively shy Graham, who attends an accelerated middle school back home, comes to life when he gears up and slides behind his Curt Britt truck for feature races at Five Flags Speedway and across the southeast.  Graham has won seven straight truck races in Britt’s No. 38, including the last two Proxy Equipment Pro Trucks features at Five Flags. Gavin will look for No. 8 and his third in a row at Pensacola’s high banks Friday night when the Proxy [...]

Chandler Smith set a torrid pace in Friday Night's SERF 100 at Five Flags Speedway, cruising to a sizeable lead, only to be victim to an overheated engine. On Saturday Night at Montgomery Motor Speedway, Matt Craig had a top 5 finish in sight, but a tangle with a lapped car in the closing laps ended his night in the Turn 1 wall. As consolation, these two drivers have been named as recipients of the Earnest Performance Hard Luck Award. Courtesy of Brannon Earnest, they will have a free set of Hoosier Racing Tires awaiting them at the next Southern Super Series event.

Nasse Rises to Top of 36-Car Blizzard Series Field, Captures SERF 100 After Smith DQ’d in Tech Shed 

Nasse Rises to Top of 36-Car Blizzard Series Field, Captures SERF 100 After Smith DQ’d in Tech Shed, DQ's on Sportsmen & Pure Stock Too.   By Chuck Corder  If Stephen Nasse’s relationship with Five Flags Speedway was a social media profile setting it would read: It’s complicated.  The 26-year-old short-track driver has experienced some gut-wrenching heartbreak at the famed half-mile asphalt oval. Nasse had the sport’s pinnacle prize stripped from him when he failed to pass post-race technical inspection at the 2019 Snowball Derby. He was inconsolable six months ago when his Snowflake 100 victory was overturned after officials determined Nasse wrecked Bubba Pollard as the two battled for the win in the final two turns.  But Pensacola’s high banks hasn’t always been so cruel to Nasse. He won two Deep South Crane Rentals Blizzard Series races for Super Late Models last year en route to the Southern Super Series title. Nasse exacted [...]
