Lizella native Tad Hunnicutt takes the Southern Outlaw Superstreet event at Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, GA. “This finally gets the monkey off our back, this win tonight is for my uncle Dick who has been battling cancer and Big Z who we lost a couple years ago” said Tad in an emotional victory lane.  After starting second row inside in the first heat race of the evening, Tad made short work in taking the lead and winning his heat race, giving him the pole position for the main event. After starting on the pole and taking the lead in the main event, he was able to hold off a hard charging Lance Beck of Warrenville, SC. who would go on to finish second in the event.  “It felt great to finish second with this caliber of cars, we have got the toughest cars in the south here tonight” said an exhausted Lance Beck. Kevin Durden of Ocala, FL was third, Mike Cauley of Windsor, SC. was fourth and Jimmy Sharpe Jr. of Soperton, GA rounded out the top five.

 After two events in the Southern Outlaw series, Jimmy Sharpe Jr. is leading the points with 43 points, Lance Beck and Kevin Durden are tied for second with 42, fourth place in points is Mike Cauley with 39 and rounding out the top five is Keith Brooks with 38. We have a tight battle shaping up for the series title this season and the $2500 that comes with it. For full race results and point standings check out our website at www.southernoutlawdirt.com.

 The series next event will be held at Cochran Motor Speedway in Cochran,GA on June 30th,2012. Check series website for schedules for upcoming events.
