Madden, Johnson, Brindle, Brooks All Winners As Georgia Tracks Come Alive

Sunday, November 22, 2020 - by Steve Hixson

Chris "Smokey" Madden of Gray Court, S.C., picked up the $10,000 winner's prize Saturday night at the Senoia Raceway Fall Nationals season finale passing Georgian Shane Clanton early, keeping his year end surge of victories going.
 
Tennesseean Mike Marlar challenged Madden, but would settle for second in the 60 lapper. Billy Moyer Jr (AR), beat out Georgians Ashton Winger and Michael Page to the finish line to round out the top five finishers.
 
Chattanoogan Booger Brooks (# WON48) was the winner of the Red Clay Series 602/Sportsman race at Senoia. Ooltewah's Matt Steward was 4th, Dalton's Spencer Singleton was 6th and LaFayette's Jake Green was 7th. Brooks' fourth win of the season netted him the $1,500 series championship along with the nigh'ts $1,500 victory. 

In Dalton/Chatsworth at North Georgia Speedway, the "Chattanooga Flash", two-time Dirt Track World Champion Ronnie Johnson, won the Late Model feature over Signal Mountain's Heath Hindman. Chip Brindle of Dalton won 604/Crate Late Models and Colten Jackson won 602/Sportsman over Cleveland's Justin Winters.
 
Saturday would have been Cleveland Speedway's 31st running of the annual Gobbler 100, a prestigious event created by the late Joe Lee Johnson and B.J. Parker. The track loved by thousands of race fans and competitors was dismantled in 2018 after it was sold to a local developer. It sits vacant to this day, leaving people wondering why.
