Austin Horton raced from to his second career victory at Georgia’s Rome Speedway in Sunday’s Super Late Model feature.

Horton started the night by scoring the pole, then drove to the victory at the 53-year-old half-mile clay speedway.

Horton was never challenged for the lead, while several drivers gave chase. Shane Clanton tried to reel him in before a mechanical issue sidelined.

From there, second place changed several times before Jake Knowles took the spot. Tyler Millwood held on to finish third, with Derek Ellis kin fourth and Donald McIntosh in fifth.

Dale Thurman became the winner in the Steelhead/525 feature after the apparent winner was disqualified in post race inspection. Thurman finished ahead of Cass Fowler in second, with Jimmy Johnson in third, Dalton Polston in fourth and John Williams in fifth.

Cruz Skinner drove to Victory Lane in the Crate late Model feature, finishing a straightaway ahead of second place Logan Palmer. T.J. Brittain finished third, while Blant Duke passed Colby Kilgore in the closing laps for fourth.

In the 602 Sportsman feature, Cody Overton made the win look easy as he crossed the line ahead of Daniel Brewer. Jason Smith, Chris Hough and Nick May rounded out the top five.

In the Economy Bomber feature, Jeremy Williams led flag-to-flag for the win, with Dylan Armstrong in second, Travis Smith in third, Justin Begley in fourth and Randy Smith in fifth.

Chris Bragg started dead last in the field and came thru the pack to get the Street Stinger feature victory. Rick Ricks finished right on his heels in second. Third went to Kenny Clark with Jason Young in fourth and James Drummond in fifth.

Rome Speedway returns to action on Sunday, July 21, as the speedway play host to the Schaeffer’s Oil Southern Nationals. For more information, visit DixieSpeedway.com.
