Volunteer Speedway remembers Scott “Superman” Sexton

SCOTT DEWAYNE SEXTON (Born July 15, 1966 – Deceased January 10, 2013)

Volunteer Speedway would like to remember 1991 and 1995 Late Model track champion Scott Sexton for all the thrills he gave East Tennessee racing fans through the years. The driver nicknamed “Superman” captured close to 200 wins in a career that began in 1986 and unfortunately was cut short due to Scott having to step away full-time from the driver’s seat in 2008 because of health issues. Sexton, from Pigeon Forge, scored the biggest victory of his career in 1992 on the high-banks at Volunteer Speedway as he defeated a stellar field of the nation’s top dirt late model drivers in winning the Mello-Yello 100 for a payday of $12,500. Other big victories during his career include the Rusty Wallace Pontiac 100, Banquet Table Buffet 100, Action Attraction Photos 100, Dalton Direct Carpets 100, Lance Cunningham Ford 100, and East Boulevard Motors Shootout 100, all at the “World’s Fastest Dirt Track” – Volunteer Speedway.

Scott, you will be missed by everybody – but your legendary dirt late model racing exploits will forever live on among all of your East Tennessee racing fans.

Scott Sexton – 1991 and 1995 Volunteer Speedway Late Model champion.
