Thursday Thunder

Local racers have solid finishes at AMS

With rain threatening to spoil the opening night of Thursday Thunder at Atlanta Motor Speedway, Mother Nature cooperated long enough to allow drivers to compete in double features to begin the 2013 season.

In the end, it was a good night for three local drivers who all turned in top-10 finishes in both their features.

Josh Hicks, who won the Bandolero Bandit points Division two years ago, made his Thursday Thunder debut in the Outlaw Division Friday night, with a pair of second place finishes.

Tina Johnson, who races in the Legends Masters Division, finished second in both of her races.

Newnan’s Alton Clark also competed in the Outlaw Division and  finished fourth and seventh in his two races.
