(Senoia, GA – April 22, 2018)  Woodrow Mullis of Pearson dominated the Crate Late Model feature securing his first ever victory at Senoia Raceway on Saturday evening.  Mullis was one of six drivers that won their first career feature at the ‘South’s Baddest Bull Ring’ Senoia Raceway.  Locust Grove’s Jamie Nicholson, Sr. picked up career win number one in the Mini Stock division while fourteen-year-old McKenna Nelms also won her first main event topping the field of Griffin Hose & Hydraulics Charger competitors.  Mableton’s Keith West, Winston’s Austin Hill and Alabama’s TJ Sanders joined the new winners after their features as well.

“If you win at Senoia Raceway, you have really accomplished something,” said promoter Mayes Massey.  “It is not easy to beat the veteran competition on this tough, slick surface gumbo clay.  These drivers stepped up their game tonight and joined an elite group of winners.”

(April 2, 2018)  Dale McDowell of Chickamauga raced to a $10,000 victory in the 60-lap feature on Saturday night that closed out the Senoia Raceway Spring Nationals presented by Textron Off-Road.  McDowell held off a number of challenges from Friday night’s victor Scott Bloomquist of Mooresburg, TN through the final half of the race.  The veterans pocketed the lion’s share of the near record purse offered by promoters Mayes Massey, Bill Massey and Doug Stevens.

“After that lengthy caution, the top of the track went away,” said McDowell afterwards. “They were going to have to beat us by trying the high side.”

Starting from the outside of the front row next to local favorite Clint Smith of Senoia in the Spring Nationals Saturday night super late model event, McDowell took the lead from the drop of the opening green flag and led every circuit.  He claimed the honors over ninth-starting Scott Bloomquist, who closely trailed the race winner across the line on a track that dramatically narrowed near the middle stages.  The changing track conditions halted the supremely entertaining, multiple-grooved competition that had spiced the earlier stages of the event and left the low groove as the fastest way around at the 3/8-mile oval.
