WHO WILL BE CROWNED KING OF THE MOUNTAIN IN DURRENCE LAYNE DLMS ACTION
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
CARTERSVILLE, GA – The Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series just crowned the King of the Crates on Sunday afternoon, but they now turn their attention to Smoky Mountain Speedway in Maryville, TN for another Coronation this Saturday night to crown the King of the Mountain after a $4,000-to-win 50-lap race.
There is a well-known sanctioning body that does some asphalt racing that likes to publicize their “Big 3.” Well, the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series has its own “Big 3.” The top three drivers in the point standings going into the King of the Mountain race at Smoky Mountain Speedway have won seven of the first ten races of the season.
Jake Knowles of Rome, GA is fresh off his third win of the season on Sunday afternoon after driving to victory in the King of the Crate 60 at North Alabama Speedway in Tuscumbia, AL where he was ordained King Jake II. Knowles is third in the Durrence Layne Dirt Late Model Series National standings with 852 points, and two of his wins have come in the last three races.
Knowles knows how to find Victory Lane at the historic Smoky Mountain Speedway, as he scored a win there earlier this season with the Sister Series to the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series, the Chevrolet Performance Super Late Model Series. Knowles uses the same race car, but with two different types of economical Chevrolet Performance Racing Engines.
Ashton Winger of Senoia, GA was two wins this season with the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series. The 18-year-old driver, known for his youth-fueled aggressive driving style, is second in the National point standings with 890 points, and he also leads the Cruise With The Champions Rookie of the Year point standings.
Winger is also competing for the VP Racing Fuels Young Gun Challenge Series title for drivers 18 years of age and younger. Winger is third in those point standings. Winger has a knack for adapting to tracks he’s never seen or been on before.
