Bright Wins Eighth Straight At Senoia Raceway


Submitted by Ted Austad

(Senoia, GA – July 29, 2018)  Dorough Bright has been unstoppable since April in the Bomber division at Senoia Raceway.  The 60-year-old Newnan businessman won his career best eighth straight feature on Saturday night after turning down an offer by track promoter Mayes Massey to start in the back.  Massey offered Bright twice the winner’s purse if he would start in the back and win the race.  Bright turned down the opportunity and led flag to flag starting on the pole.

“The fans wanted to see him start in the back,” said Massey. “But, the money did not entice him more than the winning streak.  He has been tough to beat this season.”

A few other repeat winners carried the checkers on Saturday night including Alabama teenager Cruz Skinner.  The 17-year-old hot shoe won the Crate Late Model feature notching his fourth win of the year at the tough Bull Ring.  Macon’s Cory Compton returned to the winner’s circle for the second straight week in the Late Model Sportsman as did Hampton’s Mark Newton in the Mini Stock.  Powder Springs Keith West continued his winning ways nabbing his seventh win this season in the Hobby.  Two new faces in victory lane included Tyrone’s Jody Knowles in the Limited Late Models and Trey Chapman in the Hot Shots.  McDonough’s Ted Minnix won the Charger feature.

(Senoia, GA – July 22, 2018)  The sports quote “It ain’t over til it’s over” rang true on Saturday night at the South’s Baddest Bull Ring, Senoia Raceway.  The 3/8ths mile gumbo clay track had a pair of races that were not decided until the final turn of the final lap with two cars that were running in third place when the white flag flew indicating one lap remaining actually crossed the finish line in first.  Hampton’s Mark Newton watched the lead cars spin each other before sneaking past for the victory in the Mini Stock while Winston’s Mark Page used a one lap dash restart to snag his first career Senoia Raceway win in the Limited Late Model main event.

Armistead Inches Ahead For Victory At Senoia Raceway

(Senoia, GA – June 17, 2018)  Former track champion Joey Armistead finished his late race charge on Saturday night at Senoia Raceway by narrowly inching in front at the finish line beating Shane Fulcher by only .035 seconds winning the Limited Late Model Trifecta Saturday special event.  The Senoia young gun pocketed $1000 for his efforts and inched closer to the top of the point standings for the 2018 season.

Joining him in victory lane were fellow Senoia residents Clint ‘Cat Daddy’ Smith in Crate Late Models and Ashton Winger in the Late Model Sportsman.  Dorough Bright of Newnan and Dean Williams from Alabama continued their win streaks while Newnan’s Jamie Nicholson, Sr. picked up the win in the Mini Stocks and McDonough’s Ted Willingham was moved to the winner’s circle after a disqualification in the Hobby.

“That was a great show,” said promoter Mayes Massey. “There was some really good racing, Unfortunately, some bad wrecks and a lot of passing and racing through the fields. Next weekend should be one of the best shows of the season with the way these drivers are currently battling.”
