RAY COOK CALLS MASSEY TO REQUEST A SOUTHERN NAT’LS RACE EVENT IN JULYadmin
Mayes Massey has been overwhelmed by the support he, his family and business partner Doug Stevens have received since making the announcement of the change from Senoia Raceway to West Georgia Speedway.
“It has been a whirlwind since my dad died just before Christmas,” said Massey. “We have received phone calls and e-mails from hundreds offering support of our efforts at the Burg.”
One of those phone calls came from old friend and fellow short track promoter Ray Cook. The North Carolina wheelman has turned from a successful dirt late model driver to a successful series promoter with his Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals, Southern Nationals and Fall Nationals series. Cook also promotes a dirt track in western North Carolina.
“He (Cook) understands how tough this business really is for the promoter,” Massey said. “The races with the supers have a lot bigger purses and can be very risky. Especially with an unproven facility. He wanted his tour at Whitesburg. He wanted to keep working with Doug and I and offered a deal that will bring the Super Late Models to West Georgia Speedway for the first time in years.”
One of the most popular summertime series is the Southern Nationals which swings through Georgia for several races in a tight fourteen day window. Some of the best super late model drivers follow the tour and are expected to be at the special event on Thursday, July 22 to compete in a ‘must see’ racing event.
More information will be available about this event very soon. Stay tuned to our website, Facebook page and other social media sources.
