Peach State Speedway Announces 2005 Changes
JEFFERSON, Ga. - United Speed Alliance Racing, owners of Peach State Speedway, in Jefferson, Ga., recently announced management changes at the historic short track for the 2005 race season.
Micky Cain, Director of Competition for the Georgia Asphalt Series and Director of Competition at Peach State Speedway, has been promoted to Op erations Administrator and will assume the day-to-day management roll at Peach State Speedway. Cain replaces Scott Sutherland, who recently resigned to pursue other interests.
"I am proud to see Micky move into this position," said Jimmy Wilson, USAR Weekly Racing Series Director. "He has proven himself during 2004, and he was instrumental in the success of the 'World Crown 300' in 2004."
Peach State Speedway will feature a 14-race schedule during the 2005 season, highlighted by the season opener on March 12, 13 for the Georgia Asphalt Series Late Models, featuring the North Georgia 200.
On June 25, PSS will feature a 100-lap Georgia Asphalt Series race plus a demolition derby, numerous other "crash" events and fireworks. The season finale will be the famed "World Crown 300" on Oct. 22 and 23. The USAR Hooters Pro Cup Series will make two appearances on April 16 and August 13.
Peach State Speedway will continue its participation in the Georgia Asphalt Series after a successful inaugural season in 2004.
"This series played a huge part in the success of Peach State Speedway during the 2004 season and has proven to be a win-win for everyone involved and should be bigger and better in 2005," added Wilson. "The Georgia Asphalt Series is a great partnership that got started between Peach State and Senoia Speedways. With this series, it allows drivers to compete for a $35,000 point fund that pays $10,000 to the series champion, competitors never leave the state of Georgia. Above all, it insures that the rules between the tracks involved will stay the same to allow the competitors to go where ever they wish to compete and not have to spend thousands of dollars to make their car legal for one particular track."
