The American Street Car Series will once again be invading South Carolina and the 2.3-mile road course at Carolina Motorsports Park for Detroit Speed's Southern Slam in Kershaw, SC April 20th - April 21st. The American Street Car Series was last there in 2012 during the Run to the Ole South. This will be an Optima Ultimate Street Car Qualifier for the season-ending event November 9th that pits the top street cars from across the country against each other in Pahrump, NV following the SEMA show.
The event will begin Saturday morning with tech inspection followed by track Hot Tips presented by Jet-Hot. Saturday will be a full track day; this will be the road-course portion of the event only. The full 2.3-mile track will be operated during this time solely for road course times. Following all of the action there will be a Low Country Boil on Saturday night.
Sunday will be a half day of autocrossing action on the west course. The west course was used during the 2012 Run to the Ole South and worked out perfect for competitors as well as track operators and corner workers. After all of the action is completed, participants will meet up at the pits and have the official awards ceremony.
