Swainsboro Raceway packed the house Saturday night with some of the best racing action in the South. After having several weekends off, drivers and fans brought the excitement with more than 130 cars packing the fields. The Zaxby’s Crate Late Model division took the track for the first 20 lap feature event of the night, paying $1500 to win. Caleb Gay earned the fastest qualifying time over Chesley Dixon. On the second restart, Dixon took the lead on the outside off turn two as Pearson Lee Williams moved in to fourth on the inside. Lap 3, Williams began closing in on Bob Robertson for the third position, taking third off turn four. Lap 5, Joshua Bishop took fourth off turn four on the inside. A caution on lap six gave Williams the opportunity to take over second on the restart in turn one. Another caution sends the field back to double file restart, Williams charged with caution is forced to restart in the rear. Dixon still leads the way and Bishop moves to second. At halfway, Williams made his way back to the fifth position. Dixon leads the entire event to take the checkered, Bishop earns second, Gay third, Jordy Nipper fourth, and Pearson Lee Williams finishes out the top five. Special recognition goes to Scorpion Racecars for donating an extra $100 to the winner and Woody Folsom Automotive Group for donating an extra $200.
