A Star Studded Field Expected at the SAS "Hoosier Daddy 100" at Atomic Motor
Knoxville, TN - The Southern All Star Southern Storm Tour 2000 rumbles into
East Tennessee for The 2nd Annual "Hoosier Daddy 100" at Atomic Motor
Speedway this Friday and Saturday evening, November 24th and 25th. The
$10,000 to win, 100 lap Southern All Star Main Event will draw the South's
best Super Late Model pilots to the popular 1/3-mile high banked clay oval.
Drivers and fans are eagerly looking forward to the Thanksgiving weekend
spectacular as Atomic Motor Speedway is producing some of the finest racing
action in the country, regardless of venue or sanction. The "Hoosier Daddy
100" will be the final event of the 2000 season at Atomic Motor Speedway and
the 750 horsepower, alcohol burning Southern All Star racing weapons of war
will provide the fireworks for the Grand Finale'.
Attention will be on a multitude of drivers. The first pair of notice will
be that of current SAS point's leader Clint Smith, who is gunning for his
third Southern All Star Super Late Model crown and SAS rookie Paul Tims of
Georgetown, Tennessee. The two drivers have been locked in a season long
neck and neck race as the Atomic Motor Speedway event will have direct
ramifications on who wins the SAS title. A scant 28 points separate Smith
and Tims with only two races remaining on the 2000 tour. Other fans may
choose to focus their attention to that of defending "Hoosier Daddy 100"
Champion Scott Bloomquist, along with Freddy Smith, Dale McDowell, Rex
Richey, Duayne Hommell, Skip Arp, and Wisconsin's Dan Schlieper. Each of the
popular drivers is expected to compete and all have enjoyed a tremendous
amount of recent success at the East Tennessee speedbowl.
One thing is for certain, the always potent home turf drivers will have to
be dealt with including Pigeon Forge's Scott Sexton, Knoxville's Billy Ogle
Jr., Baxter's Mark Martin, Lenoir City's Patrick Duggan, Powell's Steve
Smith, Crossville's Randy Weaver, and 2 time SAS Champion Roger Best of
Not to be out done, Southern All Star drivers such as Ronnie Johnson, Shane
Tankersley, Jeff Smith, Mike Head, Jeff Walker, Wesley Hood, and John
Llewellyn have all been extremely competitive this year at Atomic. It goes
without saying, a stellar field will be on hand, slugging it out on the high
banks for the prestigious victory.
Action will get underway Friday evening at 6:30PM with Southern All Star
Pole Qualifying and at least four Southern All Star Qualifying races. Local
divisions will stage qualifying races as well. All Main events are scheduled
for Saturday evening highlighted by two Southern All Star Last Chance
Qualifying events and the 100 lap "Hoosier Daddy 100". Action is scheduled
to begin at 6:30PM.
