After rainout, Senoia Raceway preps for big slate of events

by Riley Hicks

As the old saying goes, when it rains it pours, and this was the case on Saturday at Senoia Raceway. Heavy rains washed out the racing, as they had to call the event due to the weather. Multiple drivers lined the infield looking to get back to racing at the ‘South’s Baddest Bull Ring’ after taking a two-week hiatus hoping to advance their positions in the championship standings on double points night. Unfortunately, the weather put a damper on things, allowing for no racing or a recap of this week’s feature winners. So instead, here’s a look at the events scheduled for Senoia in the upcoming weeks ahead.

This Saturday, weather permitting, the track will have seven of its eight divisions running, excluding the Super Late Models. Drivers and fans that paid for last Saturday’s events can bring back their wristbands for free admissions. This offer also stands for the next two weekends. Along with the seven classes of racing, the kids will have a chance to participate in the kids candy scramble as each child upon admission can also enter themselves in an opportunity to win a free bike.

On July 28, Senoia Raceway will welcome back all eight of its classes as drivers battle for position in the championship chase. Quite a few divisions have some tight races for the top spot, and with the season already halfway over, drivers are going to start becoming more competitive for their chance for a crown.

On August 4, the Monster Trucks come rolling back into Senoia. Each year, the event draws fans from all around and puts on one of the best shows. Monster Trucks like War Wizard and Gunslinger will be back in action for some car crushing destruction, along with another demolition derby. Other things on the schedule include the Dukes of Hazzard Sky Jump, the Outhouse Race, which is something your eyes have never witnessed before, and the kids power wheels demo derby. This event is sure to have something for all ages so be sure to bring out the entire family.

Following this destructive Saturday, the track will take the next weekend off before welcoming the USCS Winged Outlaw Sprint Cars on August 18. This series has been coming to Senoia since the track went back to dirt, and the fans are excited to see it on the schedule again this year. Drivers from around the country travel to Senoia for their chance to conquer the gumbo in one of the fastest cars to ever maneuver around the track. Along with the Winged Outlaws, the series will bring back its mini sprints, which are just a little smaller horsepower then the outlaws.

In the coming weeks, Senoia Raceway will have many different action packed events taking place at the track other than just racing. If the chance arises, try attending one of these weekends because it won’t disappoint.
