Matt Craig Battles Back From 2 Laps Down For PASS South Win At Caraway

SOPHIA, NC (April 16) – Matt Craig battled back from two laps down to pass race leader Jared Fryar on the final restart and led the rest of the way to score his first career Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Model win in the Dogwood 125 Saturday night at Caraway Speedway.  Craig’s win allowed him to close in to within two points of PASS South points leader Kodie Conner, who finished third.

“I was running third about 20 laps into the race and I felt the pedal go to the floor, and I thought, dang there goes another one,” said Craig, driver of the family-owned C&C Boilers Sales & Services #54.  “I just drove my tail off after that.  They told me to save my stuff and wait for a caution, I didn’t listen to them.  I think I’m pretty good at restarts and we got one there at the end and were able to hold on for the win.”

            In qualifying, 2014 North-South Shootout winner, Ryan Moore toured the .455 mile speedway at a fast lap of 99.550 miles per hour to claim the quick qualifying time.  However, Moore would slot into the ninth starting position after the top 10 qualifiers redraw, while defending race winner Jared Fryar and Brandon Lynn would move to the front row.

            At the drop of the green flag, Lynn would take the lead from the outside pole over Fryar and Craig.  Moore wasted little time moving to the front taking fifth position from Trey Jarrell on lap 10.  The first caution of the night waved on lap 35 when Craig lost power down the backstretch and slowed to a stop due to a broken throttle linkage.  Craig would lose two laps while his crew made repairs to his Chevrolet.

            On the restart, Jody Measamer was able to get by Lynn to take the lead on lap 36. The next caution would not wave again until lap 76 when Kyle McCallum went for a spin exiting turn two.  On the next restart, Lynn would overtake Measamer to regain the lead, while Fryar would move by to take second.  Just one lap later, Fryar moved by Lynn to take his turn back up front. 

            With 27 laps to go, Michael Pilla spun exiting turn four to bring out a caution that would allow Craig to get back on the lead lap.  Racing over the final circuits would be intense as Moore began to challenge Lynn for second.  The two cars would make contact exiting turn four with 14 laps to go, and then again entering turn one, sending Moore’s car around and into the outside wall.

            The biggest benefactor of this hard racing would be Craig, who would start alongside Fryar for the restart.  Craig got the advantage over Fryar on the final restart and would lead the rest of the way for his first career PASS South Super Late Model victory.  Fryar finished right behind him in second, with Kodie Conner third, Measamer in fourth, and Lynn in fifth. Rounding out the top ten were Jarrell, Vinnie Miller, McCallum, Kyle Desouza, and Jimmy Doyle.

The PASS South Super Late Models will be in action once again for 125 laps onSaturday, May 27th at Concord Speedway, along with a 125 lapper for the Southern Modified Racing Series and action for the Mid-Atlantic Limited Late Models and Street Stocks.  Be sure to “Like” the Pro All Stars Series on Facebook or follow us on Twitter at @PASSSLM14.
