Boots Sears Memorial Race Takes Place This Weekend At Golden Isles Speedway





Submitted by Michael C. Popwell

SATURDAY 11/3/12--Boots Sears was a local racer who was instrumental in getting dirt track racing started in SE Georgia.  He made sure ANYONE who wanted to race was able to.  It was not uncommon to see him taking a part off of his car and giving it to another driver just so they could make the race that night.  One thing you hardly ever saw Boots doing at the track was working on HIS car, he could however be found under the hood of any other car helping someone else.  He never turned anyone away and always offered his advice IF asked.  He would race anyone just as hard as they wanted to race and when that racing turned into a spinout Boots ALWAYS backed off and gave them their spot back, and then would cleanly out run you.  He was truly a dirt track legend who had one goal in mind—GO RACING, HAVE FUN AND HELP YOUR NEIGHBOR.  Many dirt track racers in SE Georgia that race today do so because they were/are linked to Boots’ advice, help and generosity.   His tradition is carried on today by his niece Dara through Big Splash Racing. 
 
RIDE ON PALE HORS!
                                                           
Enduro, Demolition Derby and Hobby Stock Special races are planned.

Gates open @ 2PM and racing @ 5PM

Video Blog: 441 Speedway 2nd Annual Georgia State Championships 10/20/12

Over 120 cars showed up to race at the 2nd Annual Georgia State Championship race last night at 441 Speedway.  A large crowd was on hand to experience some great racing action.  The videos for all the races will be listed here as they are completed.  Up first will be the Superstreet feature which was won by Jimmy Sharpe, Jr.. That race is of particular interest to many fans because it also involved a wreck in which two drivers were injured, Bobby Piper and Danny Scarboro.  It was reported that Danny may have some broken ribs and Bobby's wife, Kim, posted the following on Facebook this morning:
Orthopedic--Dr Gay has been in. Bobby's hip is fractured into 5 pieces. They just took him down to surgery. Will be in surgery approximately 1-3 hours depending on what it looks like when Dr Gay gets in. Will be a long road to recovery. Please keep him in your prayers. I will post more as I get it. Lord Jesus please I pray keep my husband safe during. Kim Piper

Rhett Carter Overcomes A Watered Down Fuel Cell To Win

  The NLMS came to Waycross Motor Speedway Friday night and Rhett Carter showed the series regulars how to get around the 4/10 mile oval. Before quailifing the Carter crew put water in the fuel cell, not gas. His Wildcat Engine busted up the last lap in time trial, but the first lap was good enough to put him in the top six. After the draw Carter was on the pole and went on to lead every lap.
  Waycross does it all again tonight for $3,000 to win for the late models.
