The Southern All-Stars pulled into the Smokey Mountain Speedway on Saturday, August 25, as the headliners on a Hall of Fame night. The track inducted five deserving racers into the Smokey Mountain Speedway Hall of Fame: Ronnie Johnson, Rocky Estes, Roger Kerr, Bill Breeden, and Jimmy “Pup” Thomas. Following the Hall of Fame festivities, the SAS Series put on a show with a 40-lap, $5,000 to win feature. The preliminary races included the United Crate Racing Alliance for a $2,000 to win feature, the UCRA 602 Sportsman series for $1,000 to win, and Kajun Mini Stock Association for a $1,200 to win race.
