The 2017 racing season concluded at Fort Payne Motor Speedway on Saturday night and a New Kid emerged on the Block/Track, as 18-year-old Jadon Frame of Winchester, Tn., made his debut in the nights Super Late Model division.

Frame, driving his # 3 “Russell Barnett KIA, AFCO Shocks, Poultry Electric, Powers Machine” sponsored Vic Hill Racing Engines powered Capital Racecars machine, set a new track record in qualifying, breaking the mark recently set by David Brannon during the annual “FireCracker 50”  event, back in late July.

Frame went on to hold off the other kids (JT and Sam Seawright) for the $1,200 victory, his second of his young three-year career, as well as FPMS hotshoe Kasey Hall as well as former record holder Brannon. The recent graduate of Franklin County High School said assistance from Capital (race cars) from the likes of former Dirt Track World Champion Marshall Green and folks like Jerry Link are key to his early success.

Frame’s first victory came at Moulton Raceway Park earlier this season. The teams has their eyes set on Duck River Raceway Park’s mega “Deep Fried 75” event as well as Mississippi’s “Cotton Pickin’ 100” later this season. The Mechatronics Engineering major can be followed online through his Facebook page.

Stormwater Fiasco And East Ridge Camping

When did the Chattanooga City Council get replaced by members of the East Ridge City Council? I don't recall a time in Chattanooga where they've voted to shoot the city in the foot more than they have lately.  If this goes through despite the environmental impact warnings and then Camp Jordan has increased flooding after spending millions on sports ball fields, ...

Roy Exum: The Saturday Funnies
