SOUTHERN ALL STAR DIRT RACING SERIES PR#27

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Riley Hickman In Southern All Star Victory Lane At Talladega Short Track B J Parker Memorial

EASTABOGA, AL--Saturday night three time Southern All Star Champion Riley Hickman finally got to where he has been trying to since the season started and that is first place in 2016 and that he did as he led all 42 laps to get the $4,200 check in the B J Parker Memorial at the Talladega Short Track.  Hickman got his first Southern All Star win of the year and his 5th in his Southern All Star career, which moved him into the top 20 in all time wins, tying him with drivers Jerry Inmon, Buddy Morris, Johnny Stokes, Bill Frye, Earl Pearson Jr & Billy Moyer.

Hickman has had several runner up or third place finishes this and was very happy in victory lane to get that first win.  In victory lane Hickman said, “We have been fast about every race this year and come close to winning but something would always bite us and end our run but tonight everything fell in place and we got the win.”

Hickman & Josh Putnam of Florence, AL., lead the field to the start and Hickman pulled ahead down the backstretch Jason Hiett of Oxford, AL., got in second a lap later and this moved Putnam back to third while Hickman continued to pull from Hiett the field would be bunched back behind Hickman as a caution on  lap 2 stacked up 9 cars with  Brandon Kinzer of Allen, KY., suffering the worst of the deal ending his night, then  on the next restart  one lap later Jake Knowles of Rome, GA., ended his night with  a broken spindle.  The race settled down till about halfway when Jim Rogers of Statesboro, GA., and Brad Berry of tangled off turn four ending their nights also.

After that point the focus of the race shifted from Hickman being out front to the battle for the second spot and that being of Hiett and Tim Roszell who came into the picture for the final 16 laps on the top side of the track as he and Hiett kept the crowd on its feet  lap after lap swapping the second place spot several times with Hiett taking second at the checkered flag, third place went to Roszell in his best performance with the Southern All Stars this year and fifth pace Terry Smith of Anniston, AL., his best run with the series in several years.
Finishing in the sixth spot was William Thomas of Phenix City, AL., seventh place was Tim Busha of Boaz, AL., eighth to Austin Horton of Senoia, GA., ninth to David Brannon of Elora, TN., in his first start with the series in 2016 and tenth to Dylan Ames who recovered from the earlier wreck and rallied back to a top ten finish.

The next events for the Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series will be on Saturday & Sunday July 2-3 at the Senoia Raceway in Senoia, GA., a 40 lap $4,444 event the Roscoe Smith Classic and then at the Cochran Motor Speedway in Cochran, GA., another 40 lap $4,000 to win event.  More information concerning these races can be found at found atwww.senoiaraceway.com or www.cochranspeedway.com
