(Senoia, GA – March 11, 2018) On a night that the forecasters called for rain, rain and more rain, Senoia Raceway braved the forecasts and dropped the green on the annual Thousand Dollar Thriller. Alabama’s Cruz Skinner and Senoia’s Clint ‘Cat Daddy’ Smith both were happy the track decided against listening to the weatherman as the dynamic duo claimed their second wins of the season each in the Limited Late Model and Crate Late Model divisions. Each of them pocketed the one thousand dollar winner’s purse for their efforts.
“We will not call a race just because the forecast is bleak,” said promoter Mayes Massey. “We watch the radar and determine which way the weather is moving and if we feel we have a good chance to get everything rolling and race, we are going to try. We will never call a race before it rains at the track. Our drivers and our fans can count on that from us. We love to race.”

That's right, Deep Dixie Racing Network is offering tracks the opportunity to get their information out to the public in the most inexpensive way. If you notice on the right side of our main DDRN page, we have a section called "Track News". This section is designed for those tracks that have an RSS component to their website and use it to keep their drivers and fans updated on what is going on. Whenever a track makes a post, a short snippet of that post and a link to it should show up on our main page. If any track is not already participating and would like to, please send us a message or call us using the contact information over on the upper left of this site.

(Senoia, GA – March 4, 2018) Zebulon’s Shane Clanton overtook Senoia’s Bubba Pollard on lap four after Pollard made a daring pass on the inside of turn two. The former Craftsman Tool World of Outlaws champion then turned it up a notch distancing himself from Pollard and the remainder of the field to claim the opening night laurels for the Super Late Model division at Senoia Raceway. Clanton claimed it was a tune-up for the Spring Nationals at Senoia Raceway on Easter weekend.
Other feature winners on the opening night for the 2018 racing season included Alabama’s Cruz Skinner in the Limited Late Models, Senoia’s Clint ‘Cat Daddy’ Smith in the Crate Late Models and Cory Compton of Gray in the Late Model Sportsman.
