The Upstate Racing League stormed back into action last night with the SoNat 125 at the Southern National Motorsports Park, race one of the CKF Construction Spring Approval Series. This series is intended for newcomers to the league to show their skills and gain entry into the Pro Series. Rex Hoyle would start on the pole, and would lead 122 laps en route to scoring the victory. The win made it two in a row for Rex, as he dominated the first Super Sunday race as well.
The only real threat to Rex was TJ Graves who made his return to URL competition with a second place result after leading three laps. Al Smith Jr. finished in third followed by Dale O’Neil and Scott Laslund in the top five.
On Sunday, the Super Late Model URL Super Sunday Series returns after a week hiatus to tackle the USA Speedway. Next week, the CKF Approval Series heads to the Langley Speedway for the Art’s Barber Shop 125.
