Cris Michaud, Eric Williams, Ben Rowe and Patrick Laperle complted the top five finishers.

ACT Late Model Tour point leader Scott Payea of Milton, VT walked away from a violent lap-149 crash in Turn 4 that sent his Ouellette Plumbing & Heating/Leahy Press #89 Ford Fusion into the catch fence and back down into traffic.  Payea, who led four times for a total of 48 laps, and running in second place behind Williams at the time, was then collected by top-ten drivers Jamie Fisher and Jamie Aube.  No one was injured.

NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour - On Saturday night at Lanier National Speedway (GA), it was a case of ‘finally first’ for NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour driver George Brunnhoelzl who scored his first career victory in rather convincing fashion in one of the most competitive races in series history.

The third-generation racer from Babylon, N.Y. took the lead from Frank Fleming – who was also looking for his first Whelen Southern Modified Tour victory –  and wheeled his way to the front on Lap 25 and never looked back as his family-owned No. 28 Oval Speed Unlimited Chevrolet won his first race in his 20th career start.

Had the lead battled erupted, Jay Fogleman was in prime position to capitalize. Fogleman, driver of the No. 4n Speedco/The Works Ford, finished a close third to the lead duo, matching his best finish of the season.

Jeff Agnew, driver of the No. 73n Team 7 Ford, pressured Fogleman to the stripe, but he couldn’t clear Fogleman and came home fourth.
