Randy Weaver Becomes First Repeat Winner with Southern Nationals Victory at Rome

Southern NationalsBy Chris Tilley – Series Publicist

ROME, GEORGIA (July 27, 2014) – Randy Weaver of Crossville, Tenn. took advantage of Chris Madden’s misfortune on lap 44 and went on to lead the remaining distance and take home his fifth career Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals by Old Man’s Garage on Sunday Night July 27th at Rome Speedway.

Weaver came to victory lane while driving the Outlaws Race Parts, The Bailey Company, Precision One Trailer Parts and VP Fuels sponsored Cornett Engines Longhorn Chassis.

Only two yellow flags slowed the main event at Rome Speedway as Aaron Ridley spun around in turn four on the seventh lap and on lap 44 when Chris Madden came to rest of the top of turn four with a right rear flat tire.

The teams will have a much needed day off to rest before the final four events on this year’s tenth anniversary tour. The series will be back in action on Tuesday Night July 29th at Boyd’s Speedway in Ringgold, GA paying $3,500 to win.
