"Lil” John Ownbey of Cleveland, Tn., a former Cleveland Speedway Track Champion, denied reigning Southern Regional Racing Series Champion Josh Putnam victory Saturday night at Winchester (Tn.) Speedway.
Despite threatening weather around the region, owner Jimmy Nowlin forged ahead with his regular racing program and fans were treated to a battle-royal among the top two racers. Ownbey piloting the Scott Ohms Racing #74 “Harrison Transmission, RV Park Palace, Truck Service Company, Arp’s Lawn Service, Stateline Fasteners, Auto Depot, Stealth Racing Carburetors, Waffle House, All-Star Roofing, United Guttering” Race Engine Design powered GRT battled not only Florence, Alanama's Putnam but also local racer Mark Fields of nearby Lawrenceburg.
