They left skid marks on Knoxville and turned Memphis into Disgraceland to clinch the Tennessee state championship at Augusts Honky Tonk Stomp. Now the Nashville Rollergirls All Stars are revving up to give Atlanta a second burning at the Southern Fried Smackdown Sept. 25-27but first, theyre gonna remind the folks at home why Rollergirls games have become one of the hottest tickets in local sports, selling out their bouts at the Fairgrounds and drawing a celebrity cheering section. A $10 ticket, available only online at the Tennessee State Fair website (tennesseestatefair.org), admits you to both the Rollergirls exhibition match and the State Fair for less than the cost of three funnel cakes (or a crapload of corndogs). Come for the daredevil beauties riding hard and free on the edge of disaster, stay for the deep-fried Goo Goos.
