Highland Rim Speedway is pleased to announce the 2nd Round of the Faster Pastor Races will be August 31st.. Wow if the second round is anything like the first round we are in for a treat.. In the first Round Qualifying event we witnessed Bro. Larry Cantrell set on pole by means of our qualification race.. Our 1st round qualifying race consisted of using 4 grocery carts (sponsored by the local Dollar General Store) and four 5 gallon buckets of water placed in the carts.. A small race track was marked off on the front straightaway and the pastors had to turn their grocery cart around and run the course in under 30 seconds and the pastor with the most Water left in the 5 gallon bucket started on the pole for the feature.. Bro. Larry was the smoothest pastor in the qualifying race and he started the 15 lap race on the pole..
The race consisted of four of our Rim Runner division FWD cars being used in a 15 lap race.. We have a competition caution at lap 12 and we roll a die to see how how many cars we invert for the last three laps of the race.. The first pastor to finish 15 laps is the Winner and is the Championship Race in October. Bro Bryan Baggett from Bible Baptist church in Clarksville won the 15 lap race. Bro Ronnie Thompson from Hermitage Church of the Nazerene was Second, Bro Larry Cantrell from Ebenezer Baptist was 3rd and Bro Gary Dillard from Calvary baptist was 4th..
In the Bulletin Race to see which Church wins a Day at the Races for their Youth group Bro Bryan had the support of his congregation behind him once again with Bible Baptist Church in Clarksville coming in first in the bulletin race also with Bro. Gary Dillard from Calvary Baptist Church in Greenbrier a close second.
The most important thing we got from the first round of Faster pastor races is that everyone had a Great Time.. Screaming and cheering on their pastors jumping and hollaring… Hey…. I’m talking about the adults up here screaming and yelling guys. Everyone had a Blast!.. It’s Great when Christians can get together fellowship and compete and have a great time and all the way honor our Lord and Savoir Jesus Christ.
