EASTABOGA, Ala. — The Southern All Star Racing Series would roll into Talladega Short Track on Saturday evening for its first official visit of the 2013 racing season and Randy Weaver would score the victory in the B.J. Parker Memorial event that honors the founder of the Southern All Star Racing Series behind the wheel of the Outlaw Race Parts sponsored No. 116 GRT Race Car powered by a Cornett Race Engine.
For Weaver, the defending Southern All Star Racing Series champion, the win was his second with the series in 2013 and marked the 22nd series win of his career, which ranks him sixth on the series all-time win list.
Polesitter and top qualifier Chris Wilson would take the lead at the drop of the green flag and lead the first seven laps of the 42-lap, $4,200-to-win B.J. Parker Memorial event before Randy Weaver would take the lead on lap eight and only be slowed by one caution in the event and that would be for a slowed Dylan Ames on lap 15. Weaver would hold off a hard-charging fourth-starting Jason Hiett in the waning laps of the contest to secure his second series victory of the 2013 racing campaign.
Hiett would roll home second in the event, while Tim Roszell started sixth and finished third. Tim Busha and William Thomas rounded out the top five.
