This past year, Deep Dixie Racing had traveled all over the Southeast and was witness to some of the most spectacular sights in racing. Each week was a new adventure for us and a chance to be a part of the crazy, weird, amazing, and nail-biting roller coaster ride we call the racing life. I believe we saw just about everything imaginable at these races but the greatest part of all of this was the drivers you see in these videos who let us become part of their lives for a short amount of time and the race tracks, owners and promoters alike, who let us come in and film and who have all become like a second family to us. All of these people made this video possible and for that we thank them all. Our behind the scenes help Ryan Williams and Woody Hazel, your help this year was unmatched. Our partner Dale Hall, he is more than a partner, he's family and one of the very best. Finally, the producer of the video, Leo Johnson, he has put in countless hours on this video and many other videos throughout the year. He works tirelessly to bring the races to the fans and we all hope you enjoy it. To our sponsors, you have made it possible by your contributions and we humbly thank you. So this is dedicated to you, the fans, from Deep Dixie Racing. We truly appreciate everything.

Nov 23, 2013: Albany Motor Speedway held its 2013 Points and Awards Banquet at the Albany Exchange Club Fairgrounds Dining Hall. The room was decorated with a great checkered flag theme that set the tone for a great celebration of the 2013 AMS season. Everyone knew the 2013 season was over, we had taken the checkered flag; we won the race and are ready for the next one the 2014 season.
Following a delicious meal the awards ceremony began with the top five finishers in all divisions receiving a beautiful trophy along with a check for their racing accomplishments at AMS in 2013. There will be a complete winners list at the conclusion of this article. Wonderful door prizes were given out by drawing from the ticket stubs between division awards. The door prizes included five envelopes with $100 in cash inside, tools, several products from Schaeffer’s oil a pedicure and racing parts from Big Jim Racing Supply.
Special awards were given for several categories highlighted by the Big Heart of the Year Award won by Tony Lasseter for all the John Deere bicycles we gave away to children twelve and under sponsored by Lasseter Equipment. The Albany Motor Speedway Pannell Cup was awarded to the J5 team of Ben Summerlin car owner with Jeffery Summerlin the driver. The Pannell Cup is a new annual team award and the highest award AMS bestows.

Ray Cook came home $10000 heavier after last Saturday's Nesmith Championship race at Bubba Raceway Park. Starting tenth in the feature, Cook stayed patient and waited for his turn to lead the field. Ray Cook passed William Thomas a little after halfway and dominated the field until the end of the race. Driving the 114 car owned by Howard Stall instead of his usual 53 which is being worked on still from damage he got in East Alabama, Cook seemed to have the right set up and tire choice that combined to make him the victor at Bubba Raceway Park.
