‘Plott’-ing Against His Competition, 23-Year-Old Georgian Wins First Race at Five Flags Speedway By Chuck Corder Only in racing can 23 seem a tad over-the-hill. That’s still many years short of athlete’s prime years in most other sports. But with a profound and prolific influx of adolescent drivers to short-track racing in recent years, 20-somethings are usually considered grizzled veterans. With much-deserved buzz and hype around a potential youth revolution to the Allen Turner Hyundai Pro Late Model Series, a 23-year-old from Marietta, Ga., took the teenagers to school Friday night at the famed half-mile asphalt oval. A past champion at some of the southeast’s storied speedways, Kyle Plott proved once again at Five Flags Speedway why he remains a feared competitor whenever he unloads for a Super or Pro race. Plott got his first career victory at Five Flags by winning the third of four Allen Turner Hyundai Pro Late Model 100-lap races this [...]
Driver OK, car damaged rear end.
Finch...does the name sound familiar? James has been involved in racing here going back the the Eddie Mercer days. Tonight his son Jake, 14, rolls out a new car built by Derrick Griffin to compete in the Faith Chapel Outlaws. He is a 9th grader at Mosley High School in Panama City. Look for the black #51
Teenage Trio: Group of Young Drivers Vie for Allen Turner PLM Track Title with Two Races Remaining By Chuck Corder There’s no denying it: A changing of the guard is flying down the back straightaway at Five Flags Speedway. That’s not to take anything away from Bubba Pollard, Casey Roderick, and Augie Grill – stalwarts of the late model world who remain pre-race favorites at any track where they unload. Heck, Pollard – the short-track giant himself – has won the last two Deep South Crane Rentals Blizzard Series races for Super Late Models staged at the half-mile asphalt oval this season. But a cursory glance at the Allen Turner Hyundai Pro Late Model season standings, and you’ll find a top-three dominated by teenagers. Seventeen-year-old Connor Okrzesik currently leads the points chase by a slim four points over 17-year-old Colby Howard and just six points over 14-year-old Jake Garcia. “It’s certainly not what [...]

Jo Jo Wilkinson returns to Pro Late Model competition this Friday here in new Augie Grill built car. The Birmingham teen has been recovering this summer from a broken ankle suffered in a crash in the first Allen Turner Hyundai PLM race here this past spring. Another driver, Ryan Paul, who crashed his car in the same race (but separate incident) has also entered the field for the 100 lap feature.
$500 to the winner of the 20 lap feature this Friday nite. Special Thanks to Billy Arnett of Arnett Septic Tank Service for pitching in an extra hundred bucks, which will be matched by the track, making this Friday's Pure Stock race worth $500 to the winner!
