Casey Roberts scored a cool $2,000 payday with the Labor Day weekend Super Late Model feature victory at Dixie Speedway in Woodstock, Georgia on Saturday night.

The Toccoa, Georgia racer saw the door to victory lane open when race leader Jason Croft got caught in lapped traffic at the historic at the 3/8-mile clay raceway.

Roberts used the high line to bypass both Coft and the slower traffic, and moved to the lead. From there, Roberts went on to take the victory while Croft made an unsuccessful attempt to hold off Jake Knowles and finished third.

Dalton Cook came home in fourth, with Austin Smith in fifth.

In other action, Oliver Gentry took the Steelhead 525 feature win over Rucker Orr. Polesitter Landon Bagby fell back to finish third, with Dale Thurman in fourth and Deal in fifth.

Logan Palmer scored his second Crate Late Model feature win of the season, leading the way over Blant Duke in second. Cody Haskins followed in third, with Josh Copeland in fourth and A.J. Carlisi in fifth.

Justin Wakefield drove to his fifth win of the season in the Open Wheel Modified feature. Former Super Late Model Champion Tim Day came out of retirement for an evening to drive to a second place finish ahead of Bo Jordan in third, Colton Collins in fourth, and Donald Murdock in fifth.

Eric Hamby became the seventh different winner in the Economy Bomber as he passed Cody Newton on lap 10 and outdistanced Dylan Armstrong for the win. Newton, Dan Meadows, and Joe Trantham rounded out the top five.

Rick Ricks finally broke the stranglehold Jason Young has had on the Street Stinger class this year with a feature win. Shawn Harper finished second over Young, with Michael Karp fourth, and Cory Greene fifth.

Chris Hough was flagged as the unofficial winner of the 602 Sportsman class pending a protest being posted after the race. As of press time, Daniel Brewer was credited with second, followed by Larry Higgins in third, Mario Gresham in fourth, and Jake Raines in fifth.
