Mini Stock Mania set for tonight

Senoia Raceway hosts Mini Stock Mania tonight featuring a special race for the four cylinder cars. The added purse in the Mini Stock should create some intense racing and a add a few sparks. 

All other divisions will also compete including the Jodeco Auto Sales Late Models, Newnan Bonding B Cadets, Summit Racing Equipment Hobby Stocks, Bombers and Modified Mini.

Last week, Grantville’s Austin Horton held off numerous challenges from 45-feature winner Clifton Moran to capture the Summit Racing Equipment Hobby Stock feature.

“We beat the guy we wanted to beat tonight,” said the excited 17-year-old Horton. “I have to thank my dad, sponsors and everybody cheering us on tonight. This is great!”

Joining Horton in victory lane was LaGrange’s Tod Darda in the Jodeco Auto Sales Late Models, Alabama’s Roger Arnett in the Newnan Bonding B Cadets, Newnan’s Brandon Bright in the Mini Stocks, Peachtree City’s Randy Cornwell in the Bombers and Robbie Scadron of Sharpsburg in the Modified Mini division.

Horton won his first race of the season in the Hobby stocks. Jamie Land came across the finish line in third behind Moran. Gary Brand and Ben Steele rounded out the top five.

Alabama’s Roger Arnett came into the night with a newly found one point lead in the Newnan Bonding B Cadet season standings. Arnett by passed Lake Spivey’s Dow Kirkland the week before to take over the top spot in the points. The two would start side by side after an early race caution for Newnan’s Corey Payton.

Arnett held back all the challenges from Kirkland for his first career victory at Senoia Raceway while Hunter Worley of Alvaton battled the entire race with Stockbridge’s Billy ‘The Kid’ Stevenson and Alabama’s Brandon Pjninenberg. The finishing order would be Arnett, Kirkland, Worley, Stevenson and Fayetteville’s Jason Miller.

Two drivers returned to the Senoia Raceway victory lane as Newnan’s Brandon Bright collected the laurels in the Mini Stock division and LaGrange’s Tod Darda won the Jodeco Auto Sales Late Model feature.

Robbie Scadron won his first career feature at Senoia Raceway by besting the Modified Mini class. Scadron out hustled Alabama’s John Capps III and Newnan’s 14-year-old Trey Wood for the top honors.

The pit gates open tonight 5 p.m., and grandstands at 6. Hot laps will roll off at 7:30 p.m., and the first green flag flies around 8.
