SWEEPS FALL NATIONALS SUPER LATE MODEL ACTION AT DEEP SOUTH

Open Wheel Modified on Saturday and Sunday as Greg Hopkins Wins Weekend
rolled into Deep South Speedway for the three-day Fall Nationals and had never
before laid eyes on the high-banked track. When the three-day weekend concluded,
the Winston, Ga., driver was quite
familiar with the 4/10-mile oval and he was $6,500 richer for his
efforts. The son of Hall of Fame competitor and former NASCAR
Sprint Cup driver Jack Pennington earned $4,000
with a victory in a 40-lapper that closed out the special event at the
high-banked oval. Pennington started next to fast qualifier David Breazeale and
got the early jump. He then drove away from the field until 14th-starting Clint Smith showed up to challenge after using the high
side to reach the leaders. Smith vaulted into second place and twice chased down
the race leader from as far back as eight car lengths. He pulled almost dead
even with Pennington between turns one and two near the lap-30 mark, nearly
passing the young driver before falling back at the opposite end of the
high-banked oval. In addition to sweeping the super late model events for the
weekend, the teenage Pennington left town with the new track qualifying record
at a mark of 16.068 seconds in his Rocket Chassis super late model powered by a
Clements Racing Engine.
“The crew signaled to
me, so I knew somebody had to be getting close to me,” Pennington said.
Smith later started
to run Pennington down yet again, but a caution waved on lap 35 for a stalled
car on the front stretch, putting an end to the Senoia,
Ga. driver’s repeated
charges toward the front of the field. Smith wasn’t able to make as strong a bid
on the restart despite the race’s double-file restart, and finished four car
lengths behind Pennington.
“I almost passed him
the first time and was getting ready to try it again when that last yellow came
out,” Smith said.
Trailing the top duo
of Pennington and Smith across the stripe in the field were David Breazeale,
Mike Boland and Bub McCool as the top-five finishers.
DAVID BREAZEALE TAKES SUPER LATE MODEL WIN AT DEEP SOUTH SPEEDWAY
Tuesday, 07 October 2008
On a night when thrillseekers and entertainment fans from all over the Gulf
Coast region came to see whether or not Bubba Blackwell could set a new record
jumping fifty-two cars aboard his Harley-Davidson motorcycle, racing on the
track reached a frenzied level of competition. The packed house of fans
witnessed David Breazeale work his VooDoo Motorsports magic in to a
wire-to-wire victory in the 50 lap super late model battle for the Mississippi
State Championship Challenge Series (MSCCS). In other late model action it was
Pace, Florida's Ricky Haugen scoring a second straight win in the GM Performance
divison. Championship titles were determined in all Deep South Speedway classes
in a night full of spills and thrills on the racetrack.
The American Dare Devil from nearby Bon Secour, Alabama, was able to clear the
challenging jump of cars earning the new world mark in the business of
motorcycle stunt jumping. The event was video taped by several production
companies from around the globe, including the Canadian Broadcast team
from 'TV Made Me Do It'. Blackwell's leap on the Harley-Davidson XR-750
surpassed the 1973 record of 50 cars set by the late, great Evel Knievel which
was done in the Los Angeles Coliseum over three decades ago.
HAUGEN PACES FIELD IN LATE MODEL BATTLE AT DEEP SOUTH SPEEDWAY
Tuesday, 16 September 2008
On a night when Gulf Coast race fans welcomed Hall of Fame racing legend Red
Farmer to the
high-banks of Deep South Speedway, it was Ricky Haugen who stole the show to
score on the track. Haugen, from Pace, Florida, had started from the rear of
the field in his qualifying heat race and would work his way to the front with a
rousing run through the high speed traffic on the lightning fast oval. The
victory was Haugen's second of the season in GM Performance Late Model action at
Deep South Speedway, and it took everything that Haugen could muster in order to
hold off repeated challenges for the lead by Stephen Brantley and Ryan Little.
Farmer, at seventy-eight years of age brought the crowd to their feet early in
the evening as he rallied to finish second in his qualifying heat, closed in on
the leaders in the closing laps of the main event to score a fourth place finish
and was followed to the stripe by Tom Lohr round out the top-five.
across the Gulf Coast region turned out to get a chance to meet Red Farmer, and
watch the Hueytown, Alabama legend battle with the young guns on the track.
Prior to his strong top-five run at Deep South Speedway, Farmer made a special
promotional appearance at the Bass Pro Shops location in Spanish Fort, Alabama,
where crowds turned out to meet Alabama Gang leader whose sixty years as a
leading race champion also earned him the honor as one of NASCAR's 50 Greatest
Drivers of All-time. Farmer was given a rousing standing ovation when Deep
South Speedway presented him with a special award and commerative plaque in
appreciation for his visit to the racing facility in Loxley, Alabama.
