(Senoia, GA) The 3rd Annual Spring Fling 40 for the Jodeco Auto Sales Late Models at Senoia Raceway will offer competitors a shot at cashing in on some early season money offered by fourth year promoters Tim and Tony Moses. Drivers will vie for their share of the nearly $10,000 in purse offered on Saturday, April 6th including a top prize of $1,500. All drivers starting the main event will receive $100 for taking the initial green flag.
“The Spring Fling has been a great start to the late model season at our track,” said Tim Moses. “We have been lucky with a pair of really good shows the last two years. So, we decided to up the prize money a little this year and help out the guy who does not have that good of a run with increased money through the field.”
Last season, Senoia’s Joe Armistead, Jr. shot down low early in the race creating a three wide charge down the back stretch of the 3/8ths mile bull ring. He came out unscathed and went on to collect the checkers in front of Kenny Collins and ‘Magic’ Matt Dooley. Two years ago, Lavon Sparks captured the inaugural Spring Fling 40 victory.
Senoia Raceway will conduct open practices on Saturday, March 16th and March 23rd. Drivers in any division are welcome to practice as divisions will rotate throughout each night beginning at 6pm and concluding around 9pm.
