Mar. 19, 2021 (ADEL, Ga.) – The racers who will contend for the $50,000 Holley Performance 64-Car Shootout title have been locked in, and the special event is slated to round out a full day of racing on Saturday at the inaugural Johnson’s Horsepowered Garage Southern Sportsman Showdown at South Georgia Motorsports Park. While the winner of the Holley-backed race will leave the event $50,000 wealthier, the 64-Car Shootout will also generously compensate drivers who reach the later rounds with payouts to the runner-up ($5,000) and semifinalists ($1,500).

“Holley has many brands, and the Sportsman racers have always been very supportive of them all, from ignition and fuel injection to exhaust and plumbing,” said Robin Lawrence, Director of Motorsports for Holley Performance. “We really enjoy the opportunity to be part of the inaugural Southern Sportsman Showdown and give back to the racers who have been so good to us. There is a pent-up demand for places to race, and this event not only gives them that, but it also caters to the people who are the backbone of what we do.”

The Holley Performance $50,000 64-Car Shootout will begin after the first qualifying session on Saturday. The first round of the Shootout will be random pairings with no heads-up.

The first round of Saturday’s Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels $20,000 race will take place directly after, and the second round of the 64-Car Shootout will follow, and it will be laddered off of index from round one and run to completion. The ladder will stand the remainder of the race, and heads-up races will be enforced.

After the conclusion of the Holley Performance 64-Car Shootout, round two of the Mickey Thompson $20,000 race will begin, and it will run until it is complete.

“This is great. When are you going to run for $50,000 in a Stock/Super Stock race?” said 64-Car Shootout competitor Drew Skillman, the 2013 NHRA Division 3 Stock champion and 2019 Factory Stock Showdown titlist. “I’ve been out of it for a little bit, but I still think I have a chance to win this thing. There’s a lot of money on the line to win, and we have to give it a try. These guys out here are killers – they all are – you just have to be one, too.”
