In the 1970s and ‘80s, Senoia’s red-clay high banks offered some of the best entertainment around, racing or otherwise. Promoter Hence Pollard, his wife Reba and their staff were masters at making the place fan and driver friendly.
Hence Pollard, like all the great promoters, watched his races from the grandstands, from the perspective of a fan. Rather than get embroiled in every tire and spoiler and rules controversy, he looked after the fans’ interests, while Reba kept the concession food hot and as tasty as home cooking. On more than one occasion, Hence Pollard settled scoring disagreements by paying both drivers for the disputed position.
Once, years ago, Roscoe Smith (father of World of Outlaw Late Model driver Clint Smith) and Doug Kenimer finished a Late Model feature side by side. The official on Smith’s side of the track called Smith the winner. The official on the other side saw Kenimer as the victor. Pollard declared the fans the winner and paid both drivers, explaining that it was worth the extra payout to have such an exciting finish.
Once Pollard paid two drivers for second place in a disputed Sportsman race. Both drivers left happy, and Pollard explained later that it really wasn’t that expensive to make both drivers happy. He said he was going to have to pay one of them third-place money anyway and the difference in paying out two second-place purses and a second and a third wasn’t enough to be worth the worry.
After Hence Pollard died, the track was sold and eventually paved. It had a strong run as an asphalt track, but interest waned in the 2000’s. Dirt racing has long been the backbone of short track racing in the South, and on the Southside of Atlanta, and in 2010 Tim and Tony Moses decided to bring the storied past of this 3/8ths mile oval back by providing a layer of clay to the surface.
The brothers operated the track for five years and have now turned over the reigns to a trio of promoters steeped in the history of racing in the southeast. Douglasville’s Bill Massey and Mayes Massey will team up with Griffin’s Doug Stevens to take the track over in 2015. The team’s plans are more aggressive than many southern tracks have witnessed kin recent years and that has transpired into a strong reaction from the area’s racers and race fans.

This track is the best in the south and the country. The Massey's are creating an incredible environment for fun! Keep up the great work. I'm super excited to see more investments into an even better facility.
