MARCH 2, 2014
Compton, Jr. and his #10 team kicked off their version of
the 2014 racing season on March 1-2 with the annual running
of 'March Madness' at the renowned Cherokee Speedway in
Gaffney, South Carolina. Both weekend events were Southern
Nationals Bonus Races and paid $3,000 and $10,000 to win
respectively. On Saturday, Kenny timed in ninth quickest
during the qualifying session, which locked him into the
inside of the fifth row for the start of the 30-lap main
event. The Bland, Virginia ace wound up retiring at the
halfway mark in the race due to overheating woes and was
scored in the thirteenth finishing position.
Things heated up at Cherokee earlier today, as more cars
filed into the speedway for the $10,000 to win 'March Madness'
finale. Kenny posted the twenty-first fastest lap during
time trials and later placed seventh in his heat race. After
rolling off from the outside of the twelfth row in the 60-lapper,
Kenny completed only twenty-eight circuits due to more motor
troubles and was once again paid for thirteenth at the pay
window following the race. Full results from the doubleheader
weekend at Cherokee can be found by clicking on www.southernnationalsseries.com.

The KC Racing team was scheduled to start their 2014 campaign

but wet track conditions and a poor weather forecast forced
the cancellation of the 'Winter Freeze IV.' Kenny Compton,
Jr. is now planning for the annual 'March Madness' at Cherokee
Speedway in Gaffney, South Carolina on March 1-2 as his
season opening events. Additional information on the pair
of Southern Nationals Bonus Races, which pay $3,000 and
