Southern All Star Sanctioned Ginger Owens March Madness March 24th At Cherokee Speedway

FAYETTEVILLE, TN—The Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series presented by MaxFab will try for the second time to get the 17th Annual Ginger Owens March Madness this Sunday paying $12,000 to win for the Southern All Star sanctioned event as the previous date earlier in March was rained out.

The race is named after the long time scorer Ginger Owens who scored for many of the touring series in the area and was known by the fans and competitors alike.  Ginger lost her battle with cancer and so the series and track officials decided to honor her by naming this race after her.
