The Cleveland Speedway is readying for the 18th annual Southern All-Star "ShamRock" event and on Saturday night Crossville, racer Randy Weaver has the opportunity to not only win the $10,000 to-win "A" Main event, but to also rewrite history.
In 17 events only one racer in history has been able to win a Gobbler and a ShamRock back to back. On March 9, Blairesville, Georgia racer Jonathan Davenport will attempt to ruin Weaver's chance at the feat - the very feat he was able to accomplish just three short years ago.
Davenport won both the season opening ShamRock and the season closing Gobbler of 2010. Weaver whom wrapped up his 2012 S.A.S Championship with a win last November can go "back to back" by claiming Saturday nights top prize, but in doing so he'll be challenging the "Best Dirt Late Model Racers in the World". An estimated 40-something number of top Super Late Model raceteams are expected to invade the 1/3 mile clay banked dirt track for the 2013 season opener this Saturday.
Reserve seat tickets are now on-sale and going fast according to Owner/Promoter Ronnie Willkomm. Gates are slated to open early in the afternoon March 9, and racing is set to begin around 6PM EST.
