SENOIA, Ga. - Clint Smith picked up a pair of victories on Saturday night, as he scored wins in the Super Late Model and Limited Late Model features at Georgia’s Senoia Raceway.

The wins came on a night of scheduled racing and make-up features from the prior week.

Fresh off his Southern All-Stars Super Late Model victory on July, Smith battled with T.J. Reaid for the lead position during the opening laps of the Super Late Model feature. Reaid slid in front of Smith on the first lap only to have Smith return the favor with a in the second turn of the next lap. The two continued to swap the lead for the next four turns before Smith finally gained enough momentum to move away from Reaid. Smith would never be challenged again posting his fourth Super Late Model win of the season at Senoia.

Ricky Williams finished in third, with Ashton Winger in fourth, and Craig Scott in fifth.

Joseph Brown tried to hold back Smith in the first of two feature races for the Limited Late Models. Brown could only keep the veteran at bay for two laps before Smith moved ahead and then cruised to the victory. Brown would settle for second ahead of Jason Williams in third, with Cass Fowler in fourth, and Matt Dooley in fifth.

The second feature for the Limited Late Models was a war between several drivers, as Joseph Brown, Oliver Gentry, Fowler, Dooley and Tod Darda battled for the win. The drivers swapped the top positions several times during the 20-lap action packed race while racing three wide at times.

In the end, it was Fowler taking the victory, with Brown in second, Darda in third, Gentry in fourth and Dooley in fifth.

Dennis Lykins, Jr. padded his point lead in the Crate Late Models with a pair of flag to flag victories. Lykins, Jr. kept all challengers at bay with strategic restarts.

In the first feature, Zach Shelton finished in second, with Jody Knowles in third, Cruz Skinner in fourth and Marty Lunsford in fifth.

In the second feature, it was Matt Black finishing in second, with Shelton third, Skinner fourth and Knowles in fifth.

Billy Stevenson led all but three laps of the two features for the Late Model Sportsman division. Stevenson inherited the lead in first feature after then leader Bobby Arnold broke on the third lap. Stevenson would lead the rest of the way in the first race and then go flag to flag in the second race to clean sweep the action Curtis Turner finished second, with Taylor Cole third, Dustin Newell in fourth, and Blake Griffin in fifth.

Cole finished second in the second feature, with Ted Minnix in third, Turner in fourth and Matt Larson in fifth.

A scary moment in the second race saw Brandon McDaniel lose control exiting the fourth turn while in a fierce race for position. McDaniel’s car slammed into the inside retaining wall, nearly going over the top and into the busy pit area.

Dunie Dillard won for the fourth time in a month topping the Bomber feature. Dillard jumped to the lead early and then held off Dorough Bright for the win. Randy Cornwell, Derrick Matthews and Wilson Boozer rounded out the top five.

Mark Newton was the winner in the Mini-Stock feature. J.J. Garrett finished in second, followed by Mike Youniner in third, Jamie Nicholson, Sr. in fourth and Trey Rogers in fifth.

Ted Willingham topped the Hobby Stock field to score the victory, with Joe Hillman in second, John Holcomb in third, Jr. Hardy in fourth and Mike Jenkins in fifth.

Dean Williams swept the action in the pair of Hot Shot features.

Racing will continue this Saturday, July 15 with a full line-up of action. For more information, visit
