Lanier National Speedway will be a busy place this weekend, as the Braselton speedway plays host to the SpeedFest 2009 race weekend, Jan. 23-25.
SpeedFest will culminate on Sunday with a 200-lap Super Late Model event, and a 100-lap Pro Lat Model event. Qualifying events for both divisions will be held on Saturday, with Friday serving as an open practice day for all competitors.
Several local drivers are scheduled to take part in the weekend’s events, including Jefferson’s Nick Potts, Jimmy Garmon of Braselton, Russell Fleeman of Dacula, Shawn Simpson of Talmo, and John Wes Townley of Watkinsville.
