The 2020 season will open again in late February with the track’s first open practice of the year. The following Saturday, March 7 will be the ‘Season Opener’ featuring the Limited Late Models, Crate Late Models, Late Model Sportsman, Chargers, Hobby, Mini Stock, Bomber and Hot Shots competing. These eight divisions will be featured every night this season as regular classes for the weekly series events.


“We heard from quite a few drivers that wanted to race more often,” said promoter Mayes Massey. “We have scheduled eight classes for all of our weekly series events. We will continue to run all classes as long as the car counts remain respectable.”


The schedule again will be highlighted by special events of all kinds. The first special of the season will take place in March as the Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals returns on March 20 and 21. Chris ‘Smokey’ Madden won the race for the second time in 2019 while Dale McDowell and Scott Bloomquist split the double-header weekend in 2018. Donald McIntosh, Michael Page and Jonathan Davenport have also won the spring special at the ‘south’s baddest bull ring’. The race will once again pay $10,000 to the winner.


A new series for the Crate Late Models and Late Model Sportsman division will debut in early April as Mike & Linda Heard have stepped up to support these classes in 2020 with the creation of the Five Star Chrylser Gumbo Series. This special five night series will kick off with it’s first event on April 4th (more on this new series further down in newsletter). It will be followed up with the Season Points Opener the following Saturday.


The Limited Late Model division returns to the weekly line-up this year and will also have a special night in April. Last year’s ‘Gray Gumbo Classic’ was rained out and never rescheduled. That disappointed some of our fans. We have scheduled it once again on Saturday, April 18th and it will offer $2500 to win for the Limited Late Models.


May will see the return of the Southern All-Star Super Late Models, a special event for the Hobby division and more opportunities for some extra money in the Crate Late Models and Late Model Sportsman.


The Michael Head, Jr. Memorial race returns in June. Ashton Winger, Michael Page and Clint Smith have captured the title since the race found it’s current home at Senoia Raceway. It will once again be sanctioned by the Southern All-Star Series and be headlined by the $5454 to win 54-lap special for the Super Late Models.


The Southern Nationals will return to Senoia Raceway in July 2020. It has been two years since the highly popular Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals has competed on the icy-slick gumbo. It was one of the most suggested requests from our fans this off-season. The race will be a special Friday night affair on July 17th.


August is again jam-packed with special events for the Sprint Cars, Super Late Models, Crate Late Models and Late Model Sportsman, as well as, the most popular event of the season the annual ‘Back to School Bash’ with the Monster Trucks on Saturday, August 8th.


September featured the season points championship event, a fall special at the Lil’ Bull Ring (go kart track) and some practice rounds for the 5th Annual Senoia Showdown in October.


The Showdown at Senoia will be final exclamation point on the season with the three day finale scheduled for October 22, 23 and 24. All eight weekly divisions, the Super Late Models and more will be scheduled for this annual fall festival of speed.
