Mason Mingus fastest at Snowball Preview Practice


Mason Mingus fastest at Snowball Preview Practice

Mason Mingus gave notice during the Snowball Derby Preview Practice that he intends on continuing to add to the success of his 2013-racing season by capturing the fastest practice lap in the Super Late Model Division.

Mingus waited until late in the practice session to grab the quickest time among the Super Lates.

With 30 minutes left in the open practice session, Mingus tripped the clock with a lap of 16.644 seconds in his #98, 811 Call Before You Dig and Diamond Equipment sponsored Super Late Model.

The Preview Practice quick lap earned Mingus $500.00 and establishes the 18-year-old racer from Brentwood, TN as a driver to watch in this year's qualifying for the 46th annual Snowball Derby at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, FL.  The event takes place December 4th through the 8th.

"We are excited about having the fast time in the open practice," Mingus, who finished second in the ARCA Series point standings this year, said. "While it gives our team a base to try and hopefully make the car even better, we fully understand that we still have a lot of work to do. The Snowball is a tough race to make and a tough race to finish, so we'll take it one step at a time."

Mingus is driving the car that he finished third in at Winchester this year and said he really likes the way it races.

"The car was really fast at Winchester but we had a mechanical issue during the race," he said. "But once we solved the problem, we fought our way back through the field to finish third. So we know we have a strong car."

Mingus, who also ventured into the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series for three races this season, said a good finish in the Snowball would top off a successful 2013 season.

"A good finish in the Snowball would be great but a win would be a fantastic way to end the 2013 season and begin 2014," he said.

Mike Marlar Masters SAS TN State Championship by NAPA at Smoky Mountain Speedway


Mike Marlar Masters SAS TN State Championship by NAPA at Smoky Mountain Speedway  

 

Maryville, TN-October 26, 2013- The Southern All Star Racing Series made its final visit of 2013 to Smoky Mountain Speedway in Maryville, TN on Saturday evening and Mike Marlar of Winfield, TN would pick up a $10,000 payday and take the win in the TN State Championship presented by NAPA event.  Marlar’s victory would come for new car owner Ronnie Delk in the Delk Equipment/RS Trading sponsored #157 Rocket Chassis, Cornett Race Engines powered mount.  Marlar’s win made him the 13th different winner with the tour for the 2013 season.           

 

The victory by Marlar, a second-generation racer, was his second career Southern All Star Racing Series.  His previous series victory came in the 2012 series season finale Blue/Gray 100 event at Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, SC.   

 

Tommy Kerr of Maryville, TN and Mike Marlar would duel for the race lead on the opening lap of the contest, with Marlar winning the battle for the top spot, with Chris Madden of Gray Court, SC overtaking Kerr for second on trip later.  Kerr would have mechanical issues on lap 4 and draw a caution and be in and out of the pit area for the remainder of the event.  The restart had Marlar out front still, while Madden and Chris Ferguson of Mount Holly, NC would battle for second, while Scott Bloomquist of Mooresburg, TN gave chase to that duo.  Marlar would begin working traffic on lap 12 and Madden would close in on the leader as the pair worked slower traffic masterfully in tight quartered action.  Skylar Marlar of Winfield, TN would draw the next caution flag on lap 18 when his machine would slow at the bottom of turn one and disaster would strike Ferguson three laps later when his evening was done with a broken axle tube.  The final restart would see Marlar begin to pull away from Madden and open up almost a full straightaway lead over Madden before Madden would begin to charge back on Marlar in the final ten circuits of the 50 lap, $10,000 event, but would come up a few car lengths short at the finish.  Marlar would see the checkered flag first, while Madden would settle for second place, while Bloomquist would come home in the third position.  Randy Weaver of Crossville, TN and Billy Ogle, Jr. of Knoxville, TN would round out the top five finishers. 

 

The remainder of the top ten finishers at the TN State Championship presented by NAPA at Smoky Mountain Speedway would be Jonathan Davenport of Blairsville, GA, Vic Hill of Mosheim, TN, Casey Roberts of Toccoa, GA, William Thomas of Phenix City, AL, and Jason Welshan of Maryville, TN.   

 

The next Southern All Stars Dirt Racing Series events will conclude the 2013 race season on Saturday November 16 at Cleveland Speedway in Cleveland, TN for the 25th Annual Gobbler 50, paying $5,000 to win and on Sunday November 17 at Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, SC for the 23rd Annual Blue/Gray 100, paying $10,000 to win.

Randy Weaver Rolls to SAS Racing Series Victory at Talladega Short Track


Randy Weaver Rolls to SAS Racing Series Victory at Talladega Short Track  

 

Eastaboga, AL-October 19, 2013- The Southern All Star Racing Series returned to action after a couple of off weeks with its final visit of 2013 to Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, AL and tenth place starting Randy Weaver of Crossville, TN would take the checkered flag first and score the $4,000 victory aboard his Outlaw Race Parts/The Bailey Company/Precision 1 Trailer Parts/VP Race Fuels sponsored #116 GRT Race Car powered by a Cornett Race Engine.         

 

The victory by Weaver, the 2012 SAS Racing Series champion, was his second series win at TST in 2013, third series victory overall for 2013, and his 23rd career Southern All Star Racing Series victory.  Weaver’s last SAS win this season came at the B.J. Parker Memorial event at TST back in June. 

 

Tom Maddox of Center, AL would be the overall WhitePerformance.com Top Qualifier and take the lead at the start of the 40 lap, $4,000 to win event, with Michael Page of Douglasville, GA and Ray Cook of Brasstown, NC in hot pursuit.  Page and Cook would battle wheel-to-wheel for second position before Cook secured the spot on lap 4 and began to set his sights on race leader Maddox, as Randy Weaver began to methodically make his way toward the top five.  Maddox and Cook and would race door-to-door for the top spot on lap 12 before Cook took the race lead one circuit later, with Weaver working his way to fifth on the same lap.  The only caution of the event flew on lap 15 when Kyle Beard of Truman, AK slowed to a stop at the top of turn one and being pushed pitside, finished for the night.  The restart would see Cook quickly motor away from the field, while Weaver began to battle with Maddox and Page for second, with Weaver finally grabbing the runner-up slot on lap 18.  At this point, the race was on as Weaver began the process of reeling in Cook for the race lead and pulled in on Cook’s rear bumper as the leader began lapping slower traffic on lap 27.  The pair would battle for the lead before Weaver slid up in front of Cook exiting turn four on lap 29 to execute what would turn out to be the winning pass.  Weaver would pull away from Cook in the final ten laps to secure the victory, with Cook claiming second position.  Brandon Kinzer of Allen, KY would flex his muscle in the final half of the race and drive to a third place effort, with Page hanging on to claim fourth position, while series points leader Riley Hickman of Chattanooga, AL rounded out the top five finishers. 

 

The remainder of the top ten finishers on NASCAR Sprint Cup Weekend at TST would be Maddox, Jason Hiett of Oxford, AL, 14th starting Ronnie Johnson of Chattanooga, TN, Tim Roszell of Coldwater, AL, and Todd Morrow of East Ridge, TN.
