EXPECT A TOP CROP AT NORTH GEORGIA SPEEDWAY THUNDER SERIES OPENER IN 2 WEEKS

by: Steve Hixson

CHATSWORTH, Ga. (2/26/07) -- The Advance Auto Parts Thunder series 2007 OPENER is in two (2) weeks at the North Georgia Speedway dirt track in the Chatsworth/Dalton area. Slated for Saturday night, March 10th, the 60 lap, "Ernest Young Memorial" race will take place and many Dirt Super Late Model regional superstars are planning on competing for the $5,000 first place prize. The AAPTS plays host to many top Southern raceteams, but many local area SLM racers from Georgia, Tennessee, and Alabama will be vying for the over $20,000 total purse.

Beginning with the 2006 AAPTS Champion, Anthony White of Clinton, TN, racked up several awards including the $7,500 Championship Check and Trophy. The "DIRTY WHITE BOY" also bagged the Cruise with the Champions, the HVH Cylinder Heads Fast Time Award of $500, his own Chassis Challenge Pole Award for DWB Racecars of $500 as well as the 2006 PPM Racing Products Hard Charger of the Year Award with a $250 Prize bringing his total cash and prize winnings to over $16,000.

Coach David Payne of Murphy, NC, who finished third in the overall final Thunder Series points received the Advance Auto Parts "Race Ready" Award which is an Excellence in Sportsmanship for his outstanding commitment to the series. Payne is a very familiar sight in the Northern Georgia racing community and viable threat to the top spot in all races at NGS. Teen-aged racer Kayne Hickman of Soddy Daisy, TN was a true SLM rookie in 2006 and even though he had very limited experience, he proved that a driver can make the transition from asphalt to dirt track racing.

Ricky Arms of Moss, TN has been on fire in 2007 already, racing during the Florida Speedweeks and Winternationals back in February. Arms also tallied two late season big event wins at the Crossville (TN) Raceway and the Kentucky Lake Motor Speedway in Paducah. His consistancy paid off at the end of the season with the AAPTS with his second place points run worth over $3,000. While a pair of fellow Tennessee racers Steve Smith of Powell and "The Milkman" Mike Weeks of Friendsville tallied top points finishes once the 2006 season wrapped.

The 2007 opener should be lined with many Northern Georgia and Tennessee Valley based SLM racers. With the like of Aaron Ridley, Derrick Ellis, Shane Tankersley, The Chastain Bros., Derrick Rainey, Bear Patterson, Brian Hickman, Rodney Martin, Greg Knight, Tony Martin, Randy Burrows and many many more, racers and teams are looking to kick-start their respective season. Thus bringing a sensational crop of Dirt Super Late Models to NGS.
Fronting the list will be the multi and reigning track champion Gary McPherson, whom is expected to rise to the challenge of a $5,000 prized 2007 Track Championship points award.

Besides the local frey of challengers from the North Georgia "DIRT DAWGS" of the Super Late Model ranks, expect some entries from top regional racing stars to include; North Carolina's "Tar-heel Tiger" Ray Cook, as well as the possible return of Chattanooga's own Ronnie Johnson. Other possible entries based on their 2006 NGS victories, come from Georgia racers, such as; recent 3-peat "BAMA BASH" Champion and WoOLMS superstar Clint Smith as well as 2007 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP runner-up on the WoOLM series Shane Clanton.

Raceday confirmation on these and other mentioned racers and/or teams within this press release is to be made through the North Georgia Speedway on the day of the event. A majority of racers schedules are tentative at the least and depending on things such as weather, equipment conditions, travel, and other promotions, their schedules could change at any time.
