FAYETTEVILLE, TN–The Southern All Star racing name last appeared at the Senoia Raceway in Senoia, GA., was when the track was paved, well the asphalt series ceased operations after the 2005 season and the track at Senoia returned to dirt and so the Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series will be back in action at the track for the second Annual Billy Clanton Memorial 50 lapper that will pay $5,025 to win and $400 to start Saturday night May 14th.
This race is in honor of the late Billy Clanton a legend of dirt track racing across the southeast, especially in the state of Georgia where he competed in many Southern All Star races during his racing career. His son’s Shane, Joey and Rusty all followed their father’s footsteps and are very actively involved in all different forms of racing,
The Southern All Stars have raced two times at the 3/8ths mile and that was in 1987 when Mike Head of Ellenwood, GA., took the win and in 1985 when another Georgia dirt late model Hall of Famer Leon Archer of Griffin, GA., took the win.
The series will come in this Saturday night’s race with a tie at the top of the point standings and three time series champion Riley Hickman and new comer Brad Skinner of Spring Hill, TN., are tied for the top spot with Jim Rogers of Statesboro, GA., third, these drivers will be in action along with Dylan Ames of Harvest, AL., Jason Hiett of Oxford, AL., Shane Clanton of Zebulon, GA., Clint Smith of Senoia, GA., Joe Armistead of Senoia, GA., Brian Reese of Sharpsburg, GA., Russell Brown Jr of Valdosta, GA., plus many more from across the southeast.
