Weaver to Start 2015
Season in Bama Bash; Tabs Grant Pearl as Part-Time Driver
21, 2015) Fresh off a tremendous 2014 racing
season in which he reached victory lane on eleven different
occasions including in the Coors Light 'Fall Classic' at Whynot
Motorsports Park in Meridian, Mississippi to pocket a career-high
$15,000 payday, Randy Weaver announced today that he will
likely start his 2015 campaign in the 'Bama Bash' at East
Alabama Motor Speedway on February 27-28. The Southern All
Stars Dirt Racing Series (SAS) will preside over the 18th
Annual 'Bama Bash' at the historic Phenix City, Alabama facility
and a $15,000 top prize will be on the line.
Randy has also added the opening weekend of the Old Man's
Garage Spring Nationals tour to his 2015 schedule of events.
The Smoky Mountain Speedway in Maryville, Tennessee will host
a pair of Super Late Model specials on March 13-14. A $5,000
winner's check will be up for grabs on that Friday night,
while the doubleheader finale boasts a $10,000 windfall on
Saturday. You can view Randy's plans for the season all year
long by pointing your web browser to www.RandyWeaverRacing.com.
"We have just been swamped at the shop building Longhorn
cars for a select few customers and there is no way we could
be ready to race during Speedweeks," quoted Weaver recently.
"In fact, we are still six or seven cars behind right
now and we will be pushing being prepared for the Bama Bash,
but I think we can make it for that race. I have to thank
everyone associated with our Outlaw Racing Southeast team
- especially my crew and everyone here at the shop, as well
as Stone Land Clearing & Excavating, A.F. Stone Professional
Medical Services, Mission Transport, The Bailey Company, Longhorn
Chassis, Cornett Racing Engines, and all of our great product
In other news coming out of Outlaw Racing Southeast today,
Randy has tabbed Anniston, Alabama native Grant Pearl as a
part-time driver of the #116. Grant, who has helped wrench
on Randy's race cars for the past three seasons, has several
years of Crate Late Model experience and finished sixth -
in his own equipment - in this year's Crate portion of the
'Ice Bowl' at Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, Alabama.
The 25 year old up-and-comer is slated to make his first appearance
behind the wheel of an Outlaw Racing Southeast-prepped car
on January 31 in the $3,000 to win 'Cabin Fever 40' at Boyd's
Speedway in Ringgold, Georgia.
"I am very excited to announce that Grant (Pearl) will
drive one of our cars in select races this season," Weaver
went on to say. "He gave up his racing career to come
work for us and I want to reward him for that hard work and
dedication by getting his feet wet in the Super Late Model
division. We will just pick and choose several races throughout
the year for him and I think he will do a great job in the
seat. With what I went through with the passing of my dad
at the end of last year, I realize that I am not going to
be able to do this forever. I want to give back and start
preparing for the future a little bit, while still trying
to win races myself in the present."
