One of the most entertaining websites in GA racing is
www.watermeloncapitalspeedway.com and its fan forum, which hosts all
types of comments, accusations, charges, and compliments. Occasionally
track owner Marvin Ragan posts too:
“Most people that frequent the track are normal, god fearing people
who try to do what is right. The few that post all these outrageous
things on this site are abnormal and their thoughts and opinions are
taken for what they are worth by most people.” www.voy.com/199392/
And they’ve convinced us to cheer for 15-year-old Preston Streetman
in No. 67.

At Cochran, Brad Comer won the $1500 to win LM feature, with Stacy

DOUBLES:
At New Green Valley Speedway in Glencoe, AL, July 3, Dale McDowell,
of Chicamauga, started on the pole for the The Advance Auto Parts
Thunder Series $5000 to win show and won, with Ray Cook second. After a
celebratory interview in victory lane, McDADDY jumped directly into an
awaiting Crate racecar on the front straight-away, and earned another
$2,000 for the 30 lap FASTRAK crate LM feature.
At Rome Sunday night, Todd Morrow drove the Warrior house car to a
win in the Super LM features, and drove his crate car to the Top Tracks
LM feature. Another oddity: Ronnie Johnson was second in both races.
Jeff Smith, Rome and Dixie’s history professor, says it hasn’t happened
there in the past because drivers could only compete in one class.
And at Green Valley June 23, T.J. Alford won $3000 by winning in the
Rebel Super Late Models and by winning the limited LMs. Green Valley is
going to be offering a bonus for doubles on some upcoming nights. (from
Steve Hixson) www.greenvalleyspeedway.com

Friday evening, for the second leg of the South Georgia Independence
Triple Crown at Oglethorpe Speedway Park, Randle Chupp, of Troutman, NC,
led all fifty laps at the Coastal Georgia half mile en route to his
first O’Reilly Southern All Stars win since 2003.
A lap eleven incident was the most serious of the night. Lee Sutton
got into the outside wall coming under the flagstand. Sutton was able to
keep moving and pulled back into the racing groove but when he throttled
back up his Rocket Chassied race car snapped around and came to rest
pointed head-on into traffic. Two cars were able to avoid Sutton but
Thursday night winner Jack Pennington hit Sutton’s machine nearly
head-on at speed. The melee also collected the Jake Knowles mount.
Sutton, Pennington and Knowles were all able to walk away the horrific
crash. Sutton and Pennington’s Rocket Chassis were both completely
destroyed while Knowles TNT Race Car only suffered front end damage.

A double-file restart with just two laps remaining on July 3rd at
Peach State Speedway (GA) set up for a grand finale in the Pro All Stars
Series (PASS) South “Firecracker 125.” Corey Williams took the lead on
lap 122 of the 125-lap race and held off a determined Preston Peltier on
a final green-white-checkered restart for his second-straight PASS South
victory after winning on June 9th at Orange County Speedway (NC).
Preston Peltier pulled even with Williams on the white flag lap of
the feature, but was unable to clear the Boothbay, Maine native for the
victory and settled for second. Ryan Crane dominated the middle portion
of the event and finished third. Kevin Perry and Jason Hogan rounded out
the top-five.

August 4th for the “Saturday of Speed” event at Lanier National Speedway.

Jason Hogan (5th), of Cleveland, was the highest finishing of six
Georgians. Allen Gordon (6th), of Leesburg, who usually runs the UARA
series, had a bad qualifying run. Joey Senter (7th) qualified 10th.
Bubba Pollard, of Senoia, wrecked, and Lee Hansard, of Tyrone, and
Russell Fleeman, finished in the rear after bad luck. Jeremy Rice won
his heat race from the pole, but was 13th in the feature.

Johnny Chastain turned his luck around at Cleveland Speedway
Saturday night as the Murphy, NC, driver parked in victory lane after a
dominant performance in the Late Model feature. Cleveland Late Model
point leader Paul Tims was second.
This Saturday night Cleveland Speedway will host the 17th Annual
Budweiser Jean Johnson Memorial, the second part of the Southern All
