Event number 4 of the Southern Outlaw Superstreet Series was run at Gordon Park Speedway in Augusta, GA on July 21st.

Troy Talley of Rochelle, GA would claim the victory after a last lap may-lay that involved race leader Jimmy Maness of Augusta and hard charging Jason Floyd of Cochran.

Exiting turn two on the final lap contact would occur between the front runners causing a massive pile up in turn three. Snaking his way through the dust and cars Troy Talley would take the checkered flag, for the fourth different winner in as many events.

 Next up on the Southern Outlaw tour is a return visit to the site of race number one, 441 Speedway in Dublin, GA. will we have our fifth different winner?
