BULLS GAP — The inaugural Scott Sexton Memorial 52 was worth the wait for Chris Madden.

The Gray Court, S.C., driver pocketed $5,200 for his victory Friday in the rain-delayed Southern All Star Racing Series event at Volunteer Speedway. The series' first stop at The Gap since 2004 was interrupted by rain on June 1 with the race having completed just 17 laps.

Twenty of the original 24 starters returned Friday, and the event resumed with a Delaware double-file restart on lap 17, with 35 laps remaining to decide the race winner. Madden finished ahead of Dale McDowell of Chickamauga, Ga., Steve Casebolt of Richmond, Ind., Billy Ogle Jr. of Knoxville and Vic Hill of Morristown.

Following the rainout, the track added a 30-lap, $2,000-to-win Limited Steel-Head/Crate Late Model race to its program, an event that drew 37 cars. Cory Hedgecock took the checkered flag, trailed by Allen Champ, David Crabtree, Trevor Sise and Steve Smith.

Warren McMahan won the 20-lap Modified Hobby event ahead of Jamie Whitt, Chuck Johnson, Austin Atkins and Mike Mays.
