Smoky Mountain Speedway’s final event of the 2019 season, the King of the Mountain Fall Classic was held on Saturday, September 28, 2019. The Southern All-Stars Super Late Models headline a show that includes the Kajun Mini Stocks, Limited Late Models, and Sportsman Late Models. It was also Hall of Fame Night as the newest members of the track’s hall of fame were inducted.

While SAS point leader David Breazeale, and other top runners showed up to claim the $7,500 purse, it was Ricky Weiss that crossed the line first. Weiss also won the previous Southern All-Stars race at Smoky Mountain Speedway in April – giving him a clean sweep at the Speedway for the season.
