Southern National Motorsports Park News
Caudill and Lee Wear Out the Asphalt at Southern National

Kenly, NC --

It was the last night for the old asphalt at Southern National Raceway Park. Before the new pavement could be put down, though, there was some business to be taken care of. Four Oaks’ Jamey Caudill came from a third starting spot to win the first of two 75 lap Kinston Automotive Late Model races. Derek Lee took the pole in the race, but was quickly passed by points leader Deac McCaskill. McCaskill then led the next 35 laps before succumbing to the 50 car of Jamey Caudill. Caudill would hold off a hard-charging Drew Herring to win, with Herring finishing second and Stephen Rhodes crossing the line third, McCaskill finishing fourth and Curtis Truex Jr. rounding out the top five. There were three cautions.

Thanks to a four-car invert, McCaskill sat on the pole. Within three laps, however, Herring was underneath and past McCaskill. Herring would sit on the lead until lap 24 where first race pole sitter Derek Lee would make a pass and hang on to win his first race of the year. Opening night winner Sherman Davis Jr. starts ninth and finishes second, with Herring, Ryan Rhodes and Tony Cox rounding out the top five.

Despite a season-low finish of 10th in the second race, Raleigh’s Deac McCaskill still leads in points. Jamey Caudill is second, 47 points back, with Lee, Herring, Justin Milliken and Ryan Rhodes rounding out the top six.

Accidents marred the 50 lap Limited Late Model race, with Brandon Hobbs winning his second race of the year despite a lap 32 wreck that caused significant damage to both Hobbs’ machine as well as the car of points leader Lance West. Hobbs would get around West on lap 36 to take the lead and hold on for the victory. West would finish second with Tom Holland posting a season-best third.

Controversy led off the night in the UCAR division, with Linwood Edmundson taking the checkered flag over Ronnie Devera. Edmundson was later disqualified for denying Devera’s claim on the car, as well as for running illegal fuel. Edmundson’s disqualification leads to Devera’s first victory of the year. Daniel Tugwell and Ashley Smith rounded out the top three.

Terry Lancaster won his first race of the year by a nose over Donald Chase. Chase led all but the last lap, Lancaster got the position going into turn three on lap 25 and made the pass coming off of turn four. Stacey Pate made a similar pass on Kevin Benton to eek out a season-best third place finish. Points leader Greg Barnette succumbed to engine troubles early and got credit for eighth place.

Lee Kozikowski got around pole-sitter Ed Little on lap 1 and held on for the remainder of the 4 Cylinder race, with Greg Whitley and Chet Christman finishing second and third respectively. Forrest Tanner Jr. won from the pole in the Papa Jacks Thunder Cars race. Russell Din and Paul Bryant rounded out the top three.

Southern National Raceway Park will be repaving the track this coming week and will be taking the better part of May off. Racing will return on May 26th with a full schedule of racing featuring a dual-75 lap Kinston Automotive Late Model event. Grandstand admission is $15 for adults, $10 for youths 8-17, with all children 7 and under free. Military personnel admission is $13 with a valid military ID.
