    We Appreciate Everyone's Support of Senoia Raceway

    As we head into the late summer months and then into a new venture this fall, we wanted to extend our sincere thanks for your support. Everyone from the drivers, to the crew members, to the families of those participating at the track each week, we could not create the show without you! To the fans, YOU ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT, and we could not give the drivers, crew members and family a place to have fun, without you coming to see the show! It takes everyone...so THANK YOU TO EVERYONE who supports our efforts to keep short track racing alive and well in our area!

    The next few weeks will be an opportunity to see a variety of motorsport excitement at Senoia Raceway! Monster Trucks, Ultimate Late Model Series, Sprint Cars and more! We hope to see you at the 'Bull Ring'!

    YOUNG GUNS FLEXING THEIR MUSCLE AT THE BULL RING


    The future is now at Senoia Raceway as a growing crop of young talent continues to impress. The 'Young Guns' stretch from thirteen-year-old Mini Stock driver Grant Roberts (photo below) to twenty-year-old Super Late Model wheelman Austin Horton. Both have won features in their respective divisions. Features. Plural. More than once this season.

    But, they are not the only drivers who are in their teens or just turned twenty that have been turning heads at Senoia Raceway this season. The Super Late Model division is full of upstart drivers itching to make a name for themselves. 'Racin' Mason Massey has had several top fives and currently stands second in the points while Zach Leonhardi (#24) is right behind him in third place. It is hard to believe that Leonhardi just turned fifteen a few weeks ago. The former Legends Car competitors have found the 'gumbo' clay surface has been a good transition from the hard to handle Legends.

    Third generation driver Joey Armistead has made the upgrade from Limited Late Models where he won the season title in 2015 to the higher powered Super Late Models this season. Armistead has not missed a beat acclimating himself to the supers quickly. Just last weekend, Armistead battled with Massey for the lead before the veteran Clint Smith snuck past and stole the show from the younger men.
    Ashton Winger has continued to improve during his limited schedule this season at the 'Bull Ring'. The same is true for 'Magic' Matt Dooley and recent addition to the young guns Dillon Tidmore. Dooley and Tidmore (#33) have run Supers, Limited and Crates this season. Performing double duty on most nights.

    The Crate Late Model class that Tidmore has competed with a few times has been dominated by the younger generation for most of the season. Teenager Marty Lunsford (photo below) leads the points and is well on his way to the season title as he holds a 300+ points lead over his nearest competitor. Lunsford has been running his best this season and although he has not made it to victory lane his consistency has been tough for others to overcome.

    Twenty-year-old Corey Payton (photo below) has grown into a strong contender each week (when he does not have bad luck). Payton's performance the past few weeks has catapulted him into the third place position in the season point standings for the Crate Late Models.

    Nineteen-year-old 'Thrillin' Dylan Knowles has found the RSA Victory Lane a few times this season after winning more than any other driver in the Crate Late Models last season. Knowles and sixteen-year-old Trey Wood (#19) have run abbreviated schedules at the 'Bull Ring', but are always a threat to claim the checkers.

    Third generation driver Bailey Williams (#17) is the youngest driver competing in the Limited Late Model division at the age of seventeen. His grandfather Ricky Williams has been coaching (and biggest fan) the young gun. Williams sits in third place behind only Clint 'Cat Daddy' Smith and two-time track champion Glenn Morris.

    Clyde Alexander (#711) has turned a corner this summer running up front most of the time in the B Cadet class along with fellow young gun Matthew Knight (#17m). Dakota Weeks has also improved his competitiveness on the 'gumbo' clay in 2016.

    Race fans owe it to themselves to come out to Senoia Raceway and take a look into the future of short track racing. These young guns and some others not mentioned are turning up the heat against the old guard and it is exciting to watch!
