as he competed in the Southern Clash Late Model Series event and
the 'Morgan Sheffield Memorial' for the 602 Sportsmans. In the

traffic. The Valdosta, Georgia ace emerged relatively unscathed
from the serious incident, but was relegated to a fifteenth place
showing. Russell then wheeled a borrowed car in the 'Morgan Sheffield
Memorial,' but mechanical woes in his consolation race caused
him to miss out on the $1,600 to win main event. Complete results
