Weaver Claims "Tennessee Memorial" SAS Win at Cleveland

CLEVELAND, Tenn. - May 21. Randy Weaver, of Crossville, Tennessee, won the $5,000 Southern All Stars victory at Cleveland Speedway Saturday and dedicated his new "Tennessee Memorial" win to friend and former Crossville Raceway owner, the late Calvin Cheek.

"This team is really, working great. Which is a testament to Calvin, who always pushed me to get it to the front more," Weaver told his interviewers after the race.

polesitter, Chris Ferguson. The caution flew immediately, however, when Todd Morrow, Brandon Kinzer, and William Thomas got together.

After a quick second caution, Madden pulled ahead of Ferguson, as Weaver immediately went to work on the second position.  Weaver raced door to door with Madden for several laps before he made the pass as Madden encountered a slower car ahead, and Weaver pounced. Caution slowed the field again and Jamie Perry found himself disqualified after contact with Brian Hickman under caution. 

With a new late-race restart, Ferguson got the jump on Madden for second, but the leader handled traffic flawlessly for the remainder to claim the win over Ferguson, Madden, Derek Ellis, who drove from his 15th place start, and Shane Clanton. Tommy Kerr raced from deep in the field to complete his task in sixth.

Earlier in the evening, Keith Frazier was sent to the hospital to be checked for neck injuries after a wreck during one of two consolation races, and Jonathan Davenport retird for the night after hitting the wall on his second qualifying lap.
