Baggerly and his #16 B&B Motorsports team ventured to
the Smoky Mountain Speedway in Maryville, Tennessee on October
25-26 for the inaugural running of the 'Tennessee State Championships,'
which closed out their 2013 campaign. On Friday night, Daniel
timed in sixth quickest during Super Late Model qualifying

en route to a solid fifth place performance. The Rural Retreat,
Virginia ace trailed only victor Jonathan Davenport, Billy
Ogle, Jr., Tommy Kerr, and Skip Arp in the 20-lapper.

problems during Southern All Stars Dirt Racing Series (SAS)
qualifying, but later grabbed the sixth and final transfer
spot through his heat race into the $10,000 to win main event.
After rolling off from the outside of the ninth row in the
50-lapper, "Bagz" was hovering around the top ten
late in the race when a broken oil pump caused him to retire
in the fifteenth position. Daniel also entered the Crate Late
Model portion of the 'Tennessee State Championship' and recorded
a strong seventh place effort in the $2,000 to win A-Main,
which was cut short to only ten circuits due to a time limit.

in Rome, Georgia, as Daniel entered a $2,000 to win, unsanctioned

performance. The tripleheader weekend then concluded for the

Tri-County Race Track in Brasstown, North Carolina, as a $3,000

a long off-season, things will heat up quickly for the B&B
Motorsports team this Saturday night, April 13. Daniel Baggerly

Daniel, who has been busy finishing up college and preparing
to graduate, will not follow a particular series this year,
but will instead simply pick and choose where he wants to
compete. In recent seasons, Daniel has been a fixture on either
the Ultimate Super Late Model Series, Schaeffer Oil Southern
Nationals Series, and Southern All Stars Dirt Racing Series
trail. The decision not to point race this year will allow
the Rural Retreat, Virginia driver the opportunity to travel
to some new racetracks, as well as the freedom to take a weekend
off if his hectic schedule off the track deems it necessary.

"We are looking forward to finally getting a chance
to race this weekend at Smoky Mountain," commented team
owner Jim Baggerly earlier this week. "With Daniel's
school schedule and with all of the nasty weather we have
had this Spring, things haven't worked out to where we could
race yet. But everything is ready to go for Smoky Mountain
and we always enjoy the opportunity to race in one of Ray
Cook's shows. He puts on a great series and we like to support
him whenever we can!"
