The Crate Racin’ USA Dirt Late Model Series has been known as the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series for the past two years. Earlier this year, Kyle Durrence sold Durrence Layne Chevrolet, Buick, GMC in Claxton, GA, thus ending the two-year sponsorship of the series. Durrence bought the dealership from Martin NeSmith in 2018.

“We appreciate everything Kyle Durrence and the staff of Durrence Layne Chevrolet, Buick, GMC has done for Crate Racin’ USA, our family of tracks, and our competitors over the past two years,” Crate Racin’ USA Series Director Adam Stewart said. “Kyle Durrence was very enthusiastic about Crate Racin’ USA while he owned the dealership, and we wish him well in the future.”

Stewart said the series is currently in negotiations with other businesses to take over as the Title Sponsor of Crate Racin’ USA and it’s six racing Divisions for 2020 and into the future. Crate Racin’ USA will be making sponsorship announcements in the coming weeks, as plans are full speed ahead for all Division in 2020.

Crate Racin’ USA has sanctioned the Crate Racin’ USA Dirt Late Model Series since its inception in 2005. It was known as the StormPay Dirt Late Model Series in 2006 and 2007, the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series from 2008 through 2017, and the Durrence Layne Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series in 2018 and 2019.
