As the promoter of North Georgia Speedway, I have taken pride in being fair and honest in everything, and giving drivers a place to race and fans a show to come watch, in a family friendly atmosphere. With that being said, I want to make it know that this past Saturday night, a mistake was made by North Georgia Speedway, during the protest teardown of the J3 car, of Caleb Patton. After much work and effort it has been found that the part that was protested IS LEGAL. We regret that this happened and we will take steps to make sure this doesn’t happen again. North Georgia Speedway would like to apologize to Caleb Patton and his race team for this mistake, and we want to make it right, so Caleb will be given first place points for this past Saturday night’s race. John Parker who was declared the winner after the protest last week, will still keep his first place points.
Again, we regret that this happened and we want to apologize to the fans, and crew members as well. We at NGS pride ourselves in being honest and up front about everything and when we make a mistake, we admit to it, do whats right and try to learn from our mistakes. We look forward to moving forward past this and look for a great remainder of the season in some of the closest points races we have seen in years. Thank you to the fans, crew and drivers for your support and understanding in this, again, we apologize for what happened and we feel we have done what was needed to make things right.
Now let’s go racin!
