Billy Ogle Jr Dominates Rockin With the Stars Smoky Mt Southern All Star Event

1MARYVILLE, TN—The Southern All Stars Dirt Racing Series returned to the Smoky Mt Speedway in Maryville, TN., Saturday night and local favorite Billy Ogle Jr of Knoxville, TN., put on dominating performance for the night as he sat fast time in White Performance qualifying and then lead 39 of the 40 lap event en route to the $5,000 to win paycheck.

Ogle along with outside pole sitter Ray Cook of Brasstown, NC., brought the field to the green for the initial start of the race, but as the field headed down the backstretch, midway through the field in turn three the cars of Tommy Kerr and Josh Putnam got together with Putnam cutting across the infield through the go kart track and Kerr flipping his car over.  Putnam was able to continue but Kerr was done for the night.

The next start saw Cook get a slight jump ahead of Ogle on the start and Cook lead lap one but Ogle moved under him in turns one and two and then proceeded to stay up front and work lapped traffic with ease to get his 12th career series win.  Mike Marlar of Winfield, TN., came home in second spot, who made a late race charge from his ninth starting spot to get by Cook, who fell back to third and blew a tire as he came across the finish line, fourth place went to point leader Riley Hickman of Ooltewah, TN., and fifth place was Dylan Ames of Harvest, AL., in his best career finish with the series.

Chad Ogle came home in the sixth spot from the 12th starting spot, seventh to David Payne, eighth Mark Douglas from 13th starting spot, ninth Josh Putnam and tenth Todd Morrow.

The 2011 Southern All Star Champion, Ogle was driving a Blount Motorsport Rocket with a Vic Hill Racing Engine.
