Two Races Added To Southern All Star Slate


FAYETTEVILLE, Tenn. — The Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series has announced two more dates for the Memorial Day Weekend Shootout on May 23-24 with a pair of $4,000 to win events at the Thunderhill Raceway in Summertown, Tenn., and Tennessee National Raceway in Hohenwald, Tenn.

Friday night, May 23 the series will return to the high banks of Thunderhill Raceway, located just north of Lawrenceburg, Tenn., for a 40 lap, $4,000 to win event. It will be the first return of the Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series since 2001 when Byron Michaels of Florence, Ala., captured the win in a May race. The only other appearance of the series at the track came in August of 1992 when Johnny Williams of Lexington, Tenn., took home the win.

The race at Thunderhill will all be contingent that all the remodeling that has begun at the track will be completed by then. If not the race will be moved to another date later in the year.

Then on Saturday night, May 24 the series will head into the Tennessee National Raceway for another 40 lap, $4,000 to win event. The series has raced three races in the past at the west Tennessee oval from 1991-1993.
