New Show Brenden Smith “Parks It” in VSP Victory Lane

13 year old Brenden Smith takes home his first ever win in the 602 Late Model division. AJ Maddox bests a field of 20 Top Gun Sprints and turns a fast lap of 15.1 seconds on the big half mile! One Shot Mike Tovet brings home the Thunder Stock win in his first race back in the 2019 season and Mark Whitener visits a place he is very familiar with, Victory Lane in the Pro Late Model division. The stands were packed, the car counts were great with three heats each in the top three classes and the racing was nothing short of awesome. Thanks to all the racers and fans that turned out Saturday Night at Volusia Speedway Park.

Brandon Overton Thrills Large Crowd At Talladega Southern All Star Event

RACE RECAP: MARYVILLE, TN–The Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series presented by Max Fab made its first stop of the season Saturday night at the Talladega Short Track during NASCAR Weekend in the area and the record crowd on hand got to see a true battle for the 40 lap main event as Brandon Overton got his fourth career series win. It was hard fought as he moved to the outside of Ashton Winger who led lap one, and then Overton took the spot back on lap two. Then with the addition of Austin Horton,  the trio battled for the top spot throughout the race three wide several times with Overton coming out on top. Winger had to battle with Horton late in the race to keep second but he managed to get his second top five finish of the weekend. 2017 Southern All Star Champion Austin Horton made his first start with the series this year and was in the battle all night and just came up short and finished third, fourth went to Kyle Beard from his 10th starting spot and fifth to Riley Hickman finished fifth after his 22nd place finish the night before at Smoky Mt.  Neil Baggett finished sixth, Dillon Tidmore seventh, Zach Leonhardi eighth, Ahanna Parkhurst ninth and Bub McCool tenth.

RACE TIDBITS: Ahanna Parkhurst in her first start with the series in 2019 moved from 18th to 9th in race. Bub McCool was in early race caution and fought back to a tenth place finish. Overall fast qualifier Jack Hale fell out early due to mechanical issue as did three time Southern All Star Champion Ronnie Johnson who was driving the Cruz Skinner car.
