Lucama, NC (September
13, 2013) â€“ Deac McCaskill scored his 13th and 14th
wins of the season at Southern National Motorsports Park on Friday night,
sweeping twin Late Model features in the HendrickCars.com 270.
McCaskill was the fastest qualifier with a 15.391 second
lap. He started on the pole in the first
75-lap race and led wire-to-wire en route to victory. Brandon Brown started second in the race and
ran in the runner-up position until lap 46 when Hunter Devers got around
him. Devers would surrender the second
position on lap 71 when he was relegated to fourth position as David Garbo, Jr.
and Tommy Lemons, Jr. got around him.
Devers would go on to finish fourth while Johnathan Findley finished
fifth. Rounding out the top ten were
Myatt Snider, Michael Rouse, Brandon Brown, Austin McDaniel and Tyler Hughes.
The top six cars were inverted for the second race putting Snider
on the pole. Devers, who started third,
would take the lead on the fifth lap of the race from Snider and go on to lead
until lap 11 when McCaskill roared back to the lead. Devers would surrender the second position to
Lemons on lap 29. From there, Lemons and
McCaskill staged a classic duel, racing side-by-side through much of the
race. Lemons used the outside line to
his advantage to take the lead on a lap 60 restart. McCaskill edged Lemons for the lead on lap 63
when the caution came out again. On the
ensuing restart, McCaskill took the outside line, pinning Lemons on the
inside. McCaskill held Lemons off to
score the victory, his 14th on the season at Southern National.
side racing with Tommy Lemons,â€ said McCaskill.
â€œI thought he had me until he spun his tires on the last restart.
Now Iâ€™m hoping to achieve one of the most difficult feats, a repeat
tomorrow for a quad-victory weekend. The competition is so good here. Iâ€™m going
to need a lot of things to go my way to achieve such a feat but Iâ€™m looking
forward to the challenge.â€
Garbo finished third in the second race with Peyton Sellers,
Brown, Findley, Rouse, Terry Carroll, Snider and McDaniel rounding out the top
Clay Jones picked up the win in the 65-lap Superior Trailer
Limited Late Model race. Jones started
second and picked up the lead from Bradley McCaskill on lap seven. The two traded positions again later in the
race when McCaskill took the lead on lap 32.
Jones got back around on lap 39 and went on to score the victory over
McCaskill, Louis White, Buckshot Jones and Adam Resnick.
Dillon Spain scored the win in the 35-lap PhazeThree
Computers Legends feature, holding off Max Smith, Justin Mitchell, Tyler Hughes
