The Georgia Gang Were Kings Of The Beach


The Georgia Gang Of Tomorrow

The question now is, who will lead the Georgia Gang next, and will they continue the Gang’s winning tradition at Daytona?

Many pundits point to Roush Racing’s David Ragan, son of former Cup driver Ken Ragan, to carry on the winning tradition.  Ragan has shown signs of brilliance in the past, winning a Nationwide series at Talladega back in 2009.  Ragan seems poised for greatness, and it seems to many to be only a matter of time before he breaks through.

We may also be seeing the future at several Georgia short tracks.  Chase Elliott, son of Bill Elliott, has become a Late Model phenom at only 14, competing in some of the biggest late model events in the country.  In 2009, he sat on the pole for the World Crown 300 at Gresham Motorsports Park, won the GAS series championship and won a host of races.  His future promises to be a bright one.

That’s not to mention the drivers who work hard all around the state, racing on short tracks both dirt and paved, working towards that next win and hoping for a break that could lead them to Daytona.

Whoever it turns out to be, the newest members of the Georgia Gang will be racing in the tire tracks of greatness.
