Dixie Speedway
WOODSTOCK, Ga. (May 22) - Dixie Speedway celebrated its 41st Anniversary with a large crowd of spectators and racers who watched Lee Sutton take his second victory in as many weeks in the Super Late Model Championship feature.

Sutton once again grabbed the pole during qualifying with Clint Smith starting on the outside pole. Smith would grab the lead at the start with Sutton chasing behind as the field behind raced each other for position. As the racers entered turn three on lap 19, driver Brian Reese clipped the left rear of Phenix City's Lavon Sparks and sent the Alabama driver barrel rolling several times bringing out the red flag to stop the race. Though his car was destroyed, Sparks emerged from the vehicle with no injuries.

When the red flag was withdrawn, and the yellow brought out to have the cars get realigned in their starting position, leader Clint Smith remained stopped. Smith was pushed off the track where a broken battery cable was discovered. Smith's crew was able to replace the cable before the restart, but he did have to start in the rear. Sutton found himself in the lead at the restart, and was able to remain on the point for the remaining laps to take the checkers. Lamar Haygood was able to get past Frank Ingram to take the second spot. Ingram appeared to be set for a third place finish but blew a right front tire in turn one letting Luther Jenkins grab third as he held off Ricky Williams and Jody Knowles in fourth and fifth spots.

Mike McConnell repeated his appearance in victory lane in the Limited Late Model Division. McConnell led every lap, but had to fight for the win in the end as Oliver Gentry raced his way from the back of the pack but had to settle for second. Jason Smith took the third spot followed by Richard Goode and Michael Brewer rounding out the top five.

Mark Sims; of Lithia Springs drove to his first ever career victory in the Sportsman division feature. Sims held off second place Cass Fowler at the finish. Chris Fennell raced his way to third place followed by Alan Brewer and Donald McIntosh.

Scott Cleaver was another repeat winner in the Super Bomber division. Cleaver raced his way past Tony McDowell, who led the first several laps, to take the win. McDowell held off Zack Cleghorn to finish second, as Roy Patterson and Sammy Ballard rounded out the top five.

In the Economy Bomber, Daniel Brewer scored his first win of the season. The Avondale Estates driver held off John Binger at the flag. Binger was being chased by Dan Meadows and Gooch Spriggs, who finished third and fourth respectively. John Davis came across the line to round out the top five finishers.

Dan Bennett, Travis Smith, and Cody Sisson raced each other for the length of the Pony feature to finish in that order after several lead changes. Claude Etheridge joined in the mix, but could only manage a fourth place finish as Ronnie Faucett followed behind that group for fifth.

The team of Eric and Chris Neese would find their way to victory lane in the Cruiser feature. The Spectator racers would see Ken Ledford and Ralph Norton win the modified and stock class races. The first Demolition Derby of the season was held, and Darren Ray outlasted all other entries for the win.
