The series will feature 20 confirmed dates in South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia. The series will begin and end the season at Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, SC for $10,000 to win events with the Annual March Madness event co/sanctioned with B.E.A.S.T. (Battle of the Eastern All Stars Tour) on Sunday March 3rd and the SAS/sanctioned 23rdAnnual Blue/Grey 100 on Sunday November 17th.

The series will venture back to Cleveland (TN) Speedway on five occasions for the Shamrock 50; Tennessee Memorial; Stars & Stripes 40; Jean Johnson Memorial and the 25th Anniversary of the Gobbler 50 event. Talladega (AL) Short Track will host the SAS for four stops including two NASCAR Sprint Cup Series weekends, the B.J. Parker Memorial and the Michael Head Jr. Memorial event.

Smoky Mountain (TN) Speedway will host SAS three times for $5,000 to win 40-lap mains and Tazewell (TN) Speedway twice for the Fourth of July mid-week special and the Annual Buddy Rogers Memorial. Single visits to Whynot (MS) Motorsports Park, Magnolia Motor (MS) Speedway for the Governor’s Cup and Toccoa (GA) Speedway for the GA State Championships fill the 20-date version of the 2013 schedule. This will mark the first time to Tazewell (TN) Speedway since 2006 as the 2012 scheduled event was rained out on two occasions.

The series is also very proud to announce that it will return to East Alabama Motor Speedway in Phenix City, AL on Saturday March 16th. This will be the second-ever SAS event at EAMS outside of the Hav-A-Tampa/Southern All Stars events during the early 1990’s, first time since May 20, 1984, a whopping 29 seasons ago. The previous winner at EAMS was Larry Moore.

A few TBA dates are still in progress and will be released upon completion from series officials.
