Boyett to Pull "Double Duty" for First Time in 2012 Rattler
Logan to race in both Pro and Super Late Model portions of 36th Annual Rattler weekend.
Logan Boyett will be a busy guy during the 36th Annual Rattler Weekend at South Alabama Speedway in Opp, AL. The Pensacola driver will be pulling “double duty” for the first time in his career. The team has purchased a top-notch Super Late Model and will enter it in Sunday's Rattler 250. Boyett will also field his familiar No. 11 Pro Late Model car in Saturday's Pro Late Model Rattler 125.
Not only is Boyett pulling double duty for the first time, but the Rattler 250 will be the longest single race he has ever competed in. That isn't something the young driver is worried about, however.
“The longest race I have ran was 150 laps,” commented Boyett, “I had no issue keeping up on the wheel.”
Strategy during practice will be something new for Boyett as well. He will have to set up and practice two different race cars for the weekend.
“The strategy will be to focus on the Super during the daytime practice, closely relating to the actual race.” said Boyett, “The Pro car will not be touched until later in day.”
Last time Boyett competed at South Alabama Speedway was last October's Alabama Pro 200. Boyett started from the rear of the field and drove to a well-deserved second place finish. He plans to use some valuable knowledge he learned in that race to help him in the Rattler.
“The Alabama Pro race told us a lot about the car and how long it would run. Coming from the tail to second helped me immensely by knowing more about how to work that much traffic.”
This weekend's races at South Alabama Speedway, the 36th Annual Rattler, will be Boyett's first of a busy 2012 season that includes running for possible championships in the Blizzard Series, Miller Lite Series, and Viper Series.
