SOUTHERN ALL STAR DIRT RACING SERIES PR#41

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Derek Ellis Adds His Name To First Time Southern All Star Winners At Talladega Short Track

EASTABOGA, AL--The Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series concluded the 2016 season with having another first time winner as Derek Ellis of Chatsworth, GA., led all 40 lap to take the $4,000 NASCAR Weekend 40 at the Talladega Short Track Saturday and add his name to the 2016 list of first time winners which include Brandon Overton, Jason Hiett and Mark Fields.

Ellis started on the pole alongside the 2016 Southern All Star Champion Riley Hickman as they were the top two cars in SUNOCO Group Qualifying.  Ellis jumped into the lead at the stop of the green flag and then had to work his way in and out of lapped traffic and also to survive several restarts due to caution flags.  Midway through the race second place finisher Michael Page looked to have something for Ellis, but could never get around him to take over the top spot and finished second.  Third place went to Hickman who tried to find something on the track but could not as he worked high and low but had no luck.  Fourth place went to Jonathan Davenport driving Chris Stapleton Tony Stewart tribute car and fifth place went to Todd Morrow who rebounded for a top five finish after a bad couple races at East Alabama.

Sixth place went to Austin Smith of Rome, GA., seventh to Devin Moran of Dresden, OH., eighth to Tim Roszell of Anniston, AL.., ninth place to Jason Hiett of Oxford, AL., and tenth to Jake Knowles of Rome of Rome, GA.

The 2016 Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series has concluded the season and Riley Hickman had become the first driver to win the series championship four years in a row and now has tied Clint Smith with four series titles.

Brad Skinner of Spring Hill, TN., has won the Cruise with the Champions/Dirtondirt.com rookie of the Year and will be receiving a cruise along with cash reward for his efforts during the 2016 season.

We are currently working on the 2017 schedule as all tracks that had races in 2016 are back on board for next  year and we will have some tracks to add to the schedule for 2017, if you are interested in participating in the 2017 program then contact the office.

The opening race will be the annual March Madness at the Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, SC., March 4-5.
