FAYETTEVILLE, TN—The Southern All Stars Dirt Racing Series presented by Max Fab will be back in action this Saturday night June 23rd at the Senoia Raceway in Senoia, GA., for the Michael Head Jr Memorial, a mainstay on the series tour since 1991 Southern All Stars Series Champion Mike Head lost his son Michael in an attempted carjacking in the city of Atlanta.
