XR has announced an agreement to acquire the Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series, one of the nation’s longest-running Super Late Model Series. The 2022 season marks its 40th anniversary.
In assuming ownership of the Huntsville, Alabama-based Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series, XR will work with current series personnel to conduct, produce, and promote all races on the current schedule.
“I bought the series 10 years ago because I didn’t want to see it shut down. We kept things simple and that’s what I know XR will do. With the resources, people, and time XR has, the series is in great hands,” said Matt Wagner, the former series owner.
The series joins XR’s portfolio of events and racing series, including the inaugural XR Super Series for Super Late Models, the Karl Kustoms Bristol Dirt Nationals at Bristol Motor Speedway (Tennessee), and the Duel in the Desert at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (Nevada).
XR also announced its plans to purchase the Texas-based Southern Touring Late Model Series. More details will be announced at a later date.
