Full Story From AKRA Website

In light of a Sunday practice session for karts at the Herrin Compound in Dublin, GA, AKRA officials have opted to move the April 29-May 1 American Sprint Cup Series Southern Tour Round 2, originally to take place at the Herrin Compound, to Lamar County Speedway in Barnesville, GA.

During Sunday's test session, which included approximately a dozen karts making laps, racers found the track surface rough in many areas and unsuitable for kart racing.

The track has been utilized for supermoto-style motorcycle racing and this month's event would have been the first competitive kart racing event held at the compound.

"It is with great regret that we must change the location of the event, as we were all looking forward to bringing kart racing to a new venue," AKRA American Sprint Cup Series director Keith Shampine stated. "We do not want to put our racers in danger, or their equipment in jeopardy, and we are only interested in providing our customers a safe, enjoyable place to compete. While everyone I've talked to really like the facility, unfortunately the Herrin Compound track surface, while fine for motorcycles, is just not suitable for kart racing at this time."

The second round of the Southern Tour, presented by TSRacing.com, will now take place at Barnesville, a little over an hour away from Dublin, GA.

"We're thankful to the entire Georgia Sprint Karting Association for accepting our series on such short notice. We're now looking forward to going to Barnesville in just a few short weeks. The program will be identical to what we planned for Herrin with Friday practice from 11am to 6pm and racing all day Saturday and Sunday. The track will be open Thursday, April 28, for parking. Entry fees are identical to what's been posted for the Herrin event," Shampine added.

Teams that have already pre-entered for the Herrin event will be offered a refund, if desired. If no refund is desired, your entry will be used for the event at Barnesville with no action needed on your part.

We apologize for any inconvenience this change causes, and we apologize to the Herrins. We now look forward to hosting the second round of this new series at Lamar County Speedway.
