    Default Fort Payne, Bama Brawl

    How sad was the turnout for that race in the stands and on the track? I mean, wow! From what I've seen that track never gets a ton of cars but what is the deal?

    You read up on it on DoD and it sounded awful. 3 cars finished, I believe the 3rd car was 4 laps down.

    So in the results I read they had 13 cars for a winner's share of $4500. The third place car was four laps down.

    What was up with that? Was the track just so rough and out of shape? Did the baker's dozen of cars just run each other rough and wreck a bunch of stuff? What insight can someone provide?
    Political correctness,...is the inability to speak the truth about the obvious.

    I believe a couple guys were late to the line up, or had flats, Seawright, and maybe Tidmore, not 100%.

    But one didnít go out at all and another guy made like 6 laps. Not saying it was them, but they were two I remember being mentioned with issues.

    Reading the DoD racewire sounds like there was quite the drama. Even before the race started...

    2 came to the lineup with the wrong rr tire.

    Morrow being one of them parked after 6 laps

    Seawright the other had a flat leading and lost a lap in the pits. Then he parked at the next caution after talking to officials.

    First and second place wrecked each other

    During that caution Dalton Polston was black flagged for almost hitting an official.

    Also during that caution Josh Putnam parked for the rest of the event.

    Watch the Hunt to Front video from Jesse racing last week and see how rough that track was at Southern Raceway. Sheesh.

    They had 160 cars because they had 9 classes an paid extra money in every class.
