One more item of note on our Albany and Needmore races coming up in June, local drivers from the south GA area, in order to run our Southern Outlaw event everyone will have to run the H500 Hoosier tire, this is the only tire run in the series. Please contact either Albany or Needmore, they have a special on these tires for their local drivers. Keep in mind these tires wear very little at all, and you should be able to run them in all three of our upcoming southern swing races @ Albany, Needmore and Waycross.

Sunday night, after a long fought battle, Leon Childs took the checkered flag and when the start of the tech process began, the #97 car owner Jimmy Tillman put up the money for a complete tear down of the Childs' motor. With motor builder Mike Reilly on the premises, the tear down began after all races were completed. After a long night, Leon Childs' car was found to be legal. The following video is a chronicle of the events from start to finish.

Due to a rainy Saturday, Needmore rescheduled it's race until Sunday to give fans a chance to get their racing fix in for the weekend. Drama filled is an understatement for this race. There were banged fenders, tempers, and flips. In the late model race it started with Gene Ross and Steven Roberts on the front row but a tangle between the two on the second lap took them both out and made room for the 56 of Robby Metts who kept his lead until the end. Marking his first late model win of the season. Young gun Michael Ross finished in a strong second place with a lightning fast car. A tangle between Stacey Roberts and Lee Newsome halfway through the race saw the Newsome car hit the inside embankment and do a complete flip. In the Limited division, Gene Maine and Cole Exum were again the front runners and had a battle to the win with Gene Maine taking the checkers.
Superstreet had a new feature winner this year with Gary Shaw taking control of the field and beating out out of towner Bobby Piper who made his debut back in a race car after a serious wreck last year that caused injuries keeping him out for the season. Hobby division was once again the race that had fans lining the fence. Fenders banged, tempers flared, and calls were made. Leon Childs and Ronnie Newsome battled for the lead until an incident on the track sent Newsome to the rear and Childs took over and didn't look back. After the race was over, the second place car of Randy Merwin protested the Childs car and after a complete motor tear down Leon was found to be legal and get the win.
The Enduro had it's fair share of excitement with Jason Lang beating out a field of hungry drivers and following him in second place was regular Wesley Burke who both shook hands and shared a laugh after the race was over. A special race of Skeeter cars saw a dominant Martin Sapp take charge and collect the win with the gold 90 of Ronnie Lieupo right behind him. The night was one for the books for sure and the same is expected at the next race which will be on May 18th, with gates opening at 4pm and racing at 7pm.

When a driver begins to become successful in a division at any track the question for some goes from "How does he do that" to "What is he doing to his car to win"? Some may even take the last question further and come to their own conclusions whether there is cheating involved or not. When Ronnie Newsome became such a dominant force last year with 9 wins, the questions were raised from some about him cheating. Car owner, chief mechanic, and dad, Lee Newsome, has decided it was time to put these questions to rest to prove his work is completely legal and Ronnie's races were won by nothing more than talent, good equipment, and good racing setups between him and Ronnie. The following video is of Lee discussing some of the parts of the car in question and freely giving us access to all of the car.

Deep Dixie Racing was recently contacted by Ryan Hembree, Jim Hembree, and Leon Childs about dispelling a rumor that had been going around about the #7 hobby car that Leon has been driving this year. It has been speculated by some on the internet that Leon has been driving his superstreet car instead of his hobby car because the color had went from red and white to green and white.With almost one hundred wins out of the Dumb Racing shop in ten years, they wanted to set the record straight so they invited us into the shop to film both cars and to talk about the differences between them and to set the rumors to rest and prove all their wins were done the right way. The following video is Leon's own words as to what the truth really is.
