Matt Craig took the lead from Matt Wallace on lap 28 of Saturday night’s 150 lap PASS South Super Late Model race and never looked back, as he scored his second Southern National win of the year in dominant fashion.
“That’s really cool to sweep the season in PASS, both races,” Craig said after the race. “The car has just been phenomenal. We have a good setup under our piece right now and I think it was a good race. I wish we had a few more cautions there, got strung and my car kept getting a little better and some other ones were fading. It was a lot of fun. I love this track a whole bunch and hope we come back here next year.”
Early in the race, Matt Wallace pulled away with a big lead, until the caution came out for rain. Craig, who had been saving tires, was able to get by and then pull away. He would go on to survive a series of late race restarts to pick up the win, his fourth win of the season in PASS South competition.
“We were just letting off at the flagstand,” Craig explained. “He was running a little hard and I’ve done it before. It takes a while to learn your lesson about that. With five to go, I wasn’t real worried. My crew was giving me the lap times and we felt safe.”
Maine driver Dave Farrington finished the race in second while fellow northern driver Trevor Sanborn was third. Rounding out the top-five were Jared Fryar and veteran Jay Fogleman.
