The Boyd's Speedway kicked off the 4th of July Weekend racing conjecture, with the Valvoline Iron-Man series Super Late Model showdown, hosting a $5,000 to win 50 lap event Friday night.

26 racet eams entered, with Alabama's Sam Seawright grabbing the pole position and setting the pace early in the race. Donald McIntosh of Dawsonville, who's been out of racing, since his Blount Motorsports team shut down in late 2021, wielded Cleveland's Lamar and Tammyfaye Scoggins owned #32 "Wildside Custom Trailers and Conversations, Taylor Sheet Metal. Team Auto Inc." sponsored Longhorn.

Taking advantage of a lap 14 restart, McIntosh passed leader Seawright on the outside for the winning move of the race. Seawright faded to fourth behind fast qualifier Vic Hill of Mosheim and "Big-Mack" McCarter of Seymour. Canadian Ricky Weiss rounded out the top five respectfully.

Boyd's Speedway Late Model points leader Robby Mason of Hixson was tenth, with his points challenger Tod Hernandez of Rossville 12th. Heath Hindman of Signal Mtn was 15th, with Seawright's older brother J.T. returning to racing after a three year hiatus, finished 17th overall.

Local action heats up Saturday night at Fort Payne Motor Speedway in Northeast Alabama outside Chattanooga with another $5,000 to win Super Late Model "Firecracker 50" event. Sunday Tazewell Speedway in East Tennessee near the Kentucky border hosts a third and final 4th of July Weekend racing $5,000 to win Super Late Model showdown, at their ultra high-banked 1/3 mile dirt track.

Next weekend Boyd's Speedway hosts Sprint Cars both Friday and Saturday nights as the USCS series brings the 360 Winged Outlaws to town. Details can be found at Boydsspeedway.com and on their social media Facebook page.
