This past Saturday night, Senoia Raceway packed the grandstands and pit area full of fans and race cars looking to put on one heck of a show for the 22nd annual Mike Head Jr. Memorial Race, but mother nature had other plans. Just as the drivers were taking to the track, a strong storm barreled straight towards the track and positioned itself right over the raceway to put a damper on the nights festivities.
With mother nature not on the good side of Senoia Raceway so far this season, the track must still move on with the scheduled events. This weekend brings the always entertaining and destructive waterless boat race. Drivers will find some beat up boats and attach them to cars, and the last boat still hooked to its car will win. There is sure to be wreckage all over the gumbo, and you may even see some racers drive straight through abandoned boats. All rules are off the table, just make sure to keep your car running and your boat attached.
Along with the waterless boat race, Senoia Raceway has a packed racing schedule planned. The divisions running include the Limited and Crate Late Models, the Late Model Sportsman, Chargers, Bombers, and Hotshots. This will be the midseason championships for each of these classes. Being positioned high in the standings at this point in the season puts the drivers in a great spot to win their championship, so look for them to race hard for the checkered flag this Saturday.
For those wondering if there will be a makeup race for the Mike Head Jr. Memorial Race, the track is already talking with the Southern All-Stars to set up a later date this year. Stay tuned in on Senoia Raceways Facebook page and website at for more details about the rescheduled date and all the events taking place the reminder of the season.
If you haven’t witnessed the waterless boat race head to Senoia Raceway this Saturday night for mayhem. Every year fans pack the stands for this event, and it shouldn’t be any different this Saturday, if mother nature cooperates. Kids 12 and under are going to be admitted free into the grandstands, and adults are only $15. Trackside and pit passes prices are $30 and kids 5-12 $20. Don’t miss out on this destructive experience.
