Owens Scarfs Up Loftovers Notching His 20th Victory; McCarter And Brooks Double Up With Back-To-Back Wins

Sunday, November 29, 2020 - by Steve Hixson

Jimmy Owens of Newport, Tn., scarfed up the leftovers Saturday at 411 Motor Speedway outside Gatlinburg, devouring the $5,000 prize for the Iron-man series finale.

The 5th annual "Leftovers" event at the 3/8's mile Mitch McCarter family facility drew an amazing series record of 52 Super Late Model entries that saw "The O-Show" notch his 20th victory of the season.

Owens' racing season covered everything from victories in Open Wheel Modifieds to 604/Crate and even the esteemed Lucas Oil National Championship.

Owens took the lead Saturday from home track hero Cory Hedgecock of Loudon on lap 17 and never looked back in the caution-free race. Ooltewah's Riley Hickman was 10th and Soddy Daisy's Jordan Rodabaugh was 17th overall.

Mack McCarter (son of track owner) and Chattanooga's Booger Brooks (#48) won back to back feature races in the 604/Crate and 602/Sportsman divisions over the weekend.

411 Motor Speedway will host a Hangover weekend Dec. 31-Jan. 2  with all classes in competition both Friday and Saturday to ring in 2021 at the track. Their website 411motorspeedway.net and their social media Facebook page will have more details soon.
