Senoia Raceway

Rain halts events for 2nd time

Senoia Raceway’s weekly schedule was canceled due to the wet conditions at the speedway on Saturday, as Mother Nature rained out part or all of races for the second consecutive week. 

The track has rescheduled the Twin 20’s for the Jodeco Auto Sales Late Models for this Saturday as part of the Memorial Day Sparktacular weekend. 

The double features for the Jodeco Auto Sales Late Models will each pay $750 to win. The makeup feature with the expanded purse for the Bombers has also been rescheduled for this week.

The Newnan Bonding B Cadets, Summit Racing Equipment Hobby Stocks, Mini Stocks and Modified Mini will compete in heats and features. Senoia Raceway will also entertain fans and drivers with a special holiday weekend fireworks display following the night’s feature racing.

Hall of fame driver Mike Head has also rescheduled his appearance and rides in his two-seater late model to Saturday, May 25th. The former Senoia Raceway champion and one of the winningest drivers in dirt late model history, Head will offer fans the opportunity to ride with him for three laps around the speedway for only $50 per ride.

“It is always a tough decision to cancel events,” said promoter Tim Moses. “But, the grounds are saturated and the rain continues to start and stop. Next weekend will be a big night for both the fans and the drivers. Let’s pray mother nature gives a favorable weekend.”

Ticket prices remain the same this week. Grandstand tickets will remain at $12 with children 6-12 admitted for $5. Pit passes are $25 for adults and $12 for children three through twelve. Trackside parking is available on a first come, first serve basis and includes admission into the pit area.

The pit gates open at 5 p.m., and grandstands at 6. Hot laps will roll off at 7:30, with racing set to go green around 8.
