Randy Weaver almost put the perfect exclamation point on what was a great 2012 season.
“Almost” – meaning Weaver led 97 of the 100 laps before cutting down a right rear tire in the series’ final event on November 18th at Cherokee Speedway during the Southern All Stars-sanctioned 22nd Annual Blue/Grey 100. Weaver’s season still ended with him claiming his third series championship in just four seasons (2009, 2010 and now 2012).
