Tennessee State All Steel Late Model Championship
>
> Six Time feature winner David Seibers paced a stellar field of All
> Steel Late Models during time trials with a 14.804 clocking but when the
> green flag fell it was Jay Brinkley of Shelbyville, Tennessee that bolted
> out front and led all 35 laps of the main event to capture the Tennessee
> State Championship for all steel 362 Late Models. Jay picked up $2,000 for
> his effort and will go for the sweep next Friday night at North Alabama
> Speedway in the Alabama State Championship. Should Jay win at NAS next
> Friday night he could pick up an additional $2,500. Two thousand for the
> win and a $500 Bonus for the best combined finishes in the Dual State
> Championship races. Second place finisher, David Earl Gentry and third
> place finisher Mark Mears of Decatur, Alabama dogged Brinkley the entire
> distance but could never make a serious run at the Ford powered Late Model
> built by Ricky Tucker. In fact the Top seven racers were all strong
> contenders all night with Byron Michael and Brandon King finishing fourth
> and fifth respectively.
