At the beginning of the 2003 Thursday Thunder racing season, Trey Maughan of Fayetteville felt like he just couldn¿t catch the breaks he needed to score his breakthrough win. Things have changed considerably for Maughan since then. After blowing an engine the third week of competition, Maughan borrowed a car and won his first race in the Moore Machinery Movers Young Guns division the next week. ¿I was wondering if I was ever going to win, but once I got that first one, it was a lot easier,¿ Maughan said. ¿I really didn¿t have any clue I could have run this well this year, though. I guess things just went my way for once.¿ Maughan won five Thursday Thunder races in 2003, including both features on the final night of racing. Those wins vaulted Maughan ahead of competitor Ryan Bowman (Lilburn) to earn his first Thursday Thunder championship. In the Chargers division, Locust Grove¿s Casey Tate also swept the doubleheader, his first two career wins at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Meanwhile, Gary Tatum of McDonough walked away with the Chargers championship, even after missing the first race of the season and never visiting Papa John¿s Victory Lane. Skip Nichols (Albany) and Randy Thornton (Oxford) each took home a race in the Tanger Outlet Center Masters division, but the championship went to Griffin¿s Mark Wallace. Wallace, co-owner of the No. 77 Jasper Engines and Transmissions Ford driven in the Winston Cup series by Dave Blaney, won four races this season en route to the title. Hunter Robbins (Montgomery, Ala.) and Casey Roderick (Lawrenceville) have been in a heated points battle for most of the season, and the season finale on Aug. 7 was no different. Each driver won an Atlanta Dental Team Bandits race, but it was Roderick who prevailed, winning the Championship by a scant three points. Roderick was a World Karting Association stand-out before making his Bandolero debut in May of this year. Chris Dilbeck (Hampton) and Beau Slocumb (Juliette) each took home a win in the Pro division, but McDonough¿s Doug Stevens won his fourth Pro division championship, breaking his own record for most Thursday Thunder titles. Chris Cable of Griffin scored his first Semi-Pro win in the week nine make-up race, but Griffin¿s Bubba Harry dominated the final Semi-Pro race of the season. He lapped more than three-fourths of the field in the wet conditions that marred the briefly slowed racing action, winning not only the race but the Semi-Pro championship as well. Hampton¿s Jim Gresham visited Papa John¿s Victory Lane twice on Aug. 7, picking up the Pace Car Fuel Centers Roadsters championship. Jody Pilkenton (Griffin) won the week nine race in the Pace Car Fuel Centers Outlaws division. Results for the week ten-feature race are pending. Thursday Thunder will return next summer for another exciting 10 weeks of racing action. ATLANTA DENTAL TEAM BANDITS WEEK 9 1. Hunter Robbins (Montgomery, Ala.), 2.
