Statesville, N.C. (June 25, 2020) – Ahead of this weekend’s race at Hickory Motor Speedway, Carolina Pro Late Model Series (CPLMS) and AUTEC, Inc. today announced a multiyear official partnership, designating AUTEC as the series entitlement sponsor.

“We couldn’t be more excited than to have AUTEC, with its long history, as the title sponsor of our race series for years to come,” said Keith Graham, founder of the Carolina Pro Late Model Series.  “AUTEC’s confidence and commitment to invest in our working-class racers supports our mission for these racers to have a place to race throughout the season.”

Vic Keller, CEO of AUTEC, stated, “I was hooked from the very first race I attended in 2020 at Dillon Motor Speedway and knew immediately that AUTEC needed to support these working-class racers, racing on a budget. It’s a thrill to see these racers battle it out and we’re looking forward to helping Keith and his wife Wendi grow and take this series to the next level.”


Carolina Pro Late Model Series Powered by AUTEC is a series a “Built by Racers for Racers” founded by Keith and Wendi Graham, catering to the everyday racer who works all week and enjoys racing on the weekend. The series provides late model teams with a flexible and affordable rules package, allowing teams to select from a 602, 603, 604, or Ford D 347SR and the McGunegill 425 crate engine.  To enable such a flexible engine package, the series will enforce a configurable rules system that adjusts overall car weight and percentages, to equalize the field. The innovative rules package is designed to reverse a trend that has seen car counts dwindle to below 10 in many sub classes of late model racing.  To learn more about the Carolina Pro Late Model Series, including the 2020 season schedule and rules package, visit
