SENOIA, GA : (Legends PR Only) – The Legends Cars returned to Senoia Raceway after a year and half hiatus. The motorcycle engine powered race cars provide a great learning experience for new competitors to the sport of auto racing. Several drivers from Ohio made the trip down to compete against the local drivers and it turned into a true north vs. south short track war.
Ohio’s Jacob Ownes and LaGrange’s Jason Treschl fought over the lead position through the final five laps of the Legends Car feature. Treschl was finally able to wrestle the lead away just as the final lap began, but a caution would come out before they would get to the end as Senoia’s Joshua Hicks’ engine exploded in a huge fireball along the front straightaway.
The one lap dash set-up a scramble for the night’s laurels as Treschl and Owens touched in the fourth turn and then locked wheels exiting the turn which sent both spinning towards the front stretch concrete wall in front of the entire field which was hammering their gas pedals looking at the finish line. Treschl was collected in a hard crash as Owens limped across the line. Steven Parton was able to avoid all the carnage to win the race ahead of Steve Duderstadt and John Gutman, all hailing from the Buckeye state. Griffin’s Cale Hall was the first local driver to cross the finish line while Owens ended up crossing in fifth.
“That was a wild finish,” said Mayes Massey following the Legends main event. “The Legends have always provided a good show for the fans.”
