Mother Nature threw all she had at Dixie Speedway, but the historic Woodstock, Georgia track dodged all the storms and lightning on Saturday night.

Jason Croft led wire-to-wire to score the Super Late Model feature win at the 3/8-mile clay raceway.

Croft jumped to the early lead ahead of pole sitter Derek Ellis and gapped the field before getting into lap traffic. Behind him, Justin Shipley was able to bypass Ellis in traffic, and closed to within a car length of the leader.

Croft held off the challenge and went on to the victory. Shipley had to settle for second, with Ellis in third, Eric Granger in fourth and Austin Smith in fifth.

In other action, Landon Bagby got his second win of the season in the Steelhead Late Model feature. Oliver Gentry followed in second trailed by Rucker Orr in third, Jacques Daniel in fourth, and Tate McCollum in fifth.

In the Crate Late Model feature, Will Roland became the fourth different winner in as many races as he held off previous winner Ahnna Parkhurst. Jake Pilgrim followed in third, with Kyler Haygood fourth and Jason Deal fifth.

With a large car count in the 602 Sportsman division, the field was split into two features. Race number one would see longtime competitor Chris Sizemore get his first victory in 11 years. Chris Hough finished in second, with Shun Thomas in third, Chris McKeehan in fourth and Colten Jackson in fifth.

The second 602 Sportsman feature saw Sawyer Tinker get the win over Rob Johnson. Booman Galloway, Allen Brewer, and Daniel Brewer rounded out the top five.

Joe Trantham snapped an eight year drought with a win in the Economy Bomber feature. Dan Meadows followed in second, with Jeremy Williams in third, Eric Hamby in fourth and Justin Begley in fifth.

Jason Young remains undefeated in the Street Stinger division, taking his fourth win of the season ahead of Rick Ricks in second, Jonathan Nelson in third, Roger Adkins in fourth and James Drummond in fifth..

Dixie Speedway is next slated to race on August 8. For more information, visit DixieSpeedway.com.
