TERRY GRAY AND JASON WILLIAMS TOP SENOIA RACEWAY
(Senoia, GA) Ten time United Sprint Car Series National Champion, Terry Gray from Bartlett, Tennessee added another notch to his USCS win column at Senoia Raceway on Friday night. Joining Gray in victory lane was the 2012 Senoia Raceway late model champion Jason Williams of Locust Grove. Williams topped a strong field of late models to win his only appearance at Senoia Raceway this season.
Terry Gray, who started from the pole position, bested defending USCS National Champion Tim Crawley from Benton, Arkansas for the win in the 20-lap Senoia Summer Nationals IV night one preliminary. Gray’s team-mate, twenty year old female sprint car star Morgan Turpen from Cordova, Tennessee raced across the finish line in third place. Current USCS National point’s leader, Derek Hagar from Marion, Arkansas finished in fourth place and Rookie of the Year contender, Curt Terrell from Bartlett, Tennessee completed the top five drivers at the finish.
Racin’ Jason Williams continued his strong September (won at Dixie Speedway on September 14) with a dominating win over the 2013 track champion at Senoia Raceway, Glenn Morris of Fayetteville. Jenkinsburg’s Trey White took home third place ahead of LaGrange’s Tod Darda and Dennis Hale. This was Williams only appearance of the season at the 3/8ths mile speed plant where he took home the points title a year earlier.
Other winners on Friday evening were Alabama’s Sean Hosey in the USCS Mini Sprints, Paul Holloway of Hampton in the Newnan Bonding B Cadets, Barnesville’s Gary Parker in the Mini Stocks and Peachtree City’s Randy Cornwell in the Bombers. Cornwell’s victory inched him within striking distance of the track points title for the Bomber division.
The opportunity for drivers to snag a position or two in the final track points were washed away on Saturday as rain moved in early and stayed throughout the afternoon forcing the cancellation of the second leg of the weekend. The weather related cancellation put the final mark on a season that has not been kind to drivers, fans or the promoters of Senoia Raceway.
“How else would this season end than with a rain-out,” said promoter Tim Moses. “I have taken a hard hit this season with all the rainouts and rain effected events. It’s not easy depending on something you have no control over.”
The track is currently planning a special year end gathering to honor their divisional champions, top drivers, rookie of the year winners and other season related awards. Presentations and point fund bonus will be awarded at this ceremony. More details will be released as they are finalized.
