The second annual “Winter Freeze” lived up to it’s name this weekend as temperatures dropped way below the freezing mark on Saturday night! By the time the sprint car feature was completed, the track had already started to freeze; leaving traces of ice and frost around the race surface.
Darrell Lanigan left Screven Motor Speedway $20,000 richer Saturday night- as he claimed the second annual World of Outlaws Late Model Series ‘Winter Freeze’ title. He would dominate the sixty lap event; holding off Lucas Oil Series regular, Ray Cook, for the last 14 circuits, and defending World of Outlaws Champion, Rick Eckert. Lanigan started the event 4th.

Daryn Pittman and NASCAR Star, Tony Stewart, each picked up All-Star Circuit of Champions sprint car victories over the weekend at Screven Motor Speedway in Sylvania, Georgia. The 410 sprint cars had two complete shows over the course of the weekend- each paying $5,000. The first event of the 2012 All-Star schedule drew 26 cars.

During the Friday night portion of the All-Star program, Daryn Pittman grabbed the 30 lap victory over David Gravel and PA youngster, Logan Schuhart! Pittman has been more than successful in the Lelands.com no. 27 – and will look to continue that stretch of success into the near future. Tony Stewart won the Saturday night All-Star main event; capturing the 30 lap victory over Jason Sides and Cody Darrah. Stewart is certainly no stranger to sprint car victory lane in recent history, as he grabbed a World of Outlaws win in dominating fashion last summer in Canada!
