It will be a busy night at Senoia Raceway Saturday as the local dirt track attempts to catch up from last week’s rainouts with double features in several divisions.

Drivers in the Limited Late Model, Crate Late Models, Late Model Sportsman and Hot Shot Divisions will run double features, while the Super Late Models, Hobby Stock and Mini Stock will compete for the checked flag just once.

There will also be one race in the Bomber Class with a $1,000 purse.

Heading into Saturday’s action, Clint Smith is in control of the Super Late Model Division with 564 points. He leads second-place Glenn Morris (545) by 19 points.

In the Hot Shots Division, Morgan Pittman (618) and Nathan Farrow (607) are in command of the series. Dave McWilliams is in third place (571) and Michael Follmer (462) is fourth.

Dennis Lykins (628) is in first place in the Crate Late Model Division with Jamie Maurice second (591).

Matt Dooley (685) is the driver to beat in the Limited Late Model Division. James Williams (650) is 35 points behind and in second place.

Joe Hillman (691) leads in the Hobby Stocks Division, but only three points separate the second and third place drivers with Ted Willingham (628) and John Holcomb (628) securing the second and third spots.

Charlie Garrett (704) leads the Bombers, Mark Newton (697) the Mini-Stocks, and Keith Fields (598) the Late Model Sportsman.

Pit gates open at 3 p.m. and the grandstand at 5.

Pit passes are $30 for adults, and $20 for children 5-12. Children under 4 are free.
