Casey Roberts went two-for-two on the Labor Day holiday weekend by scoring the Super Late Model feature win on Sunday night at Georgia’s Rome Speedway.

The Toccoa, Georgia speedster took the lead from pole sitter Jason Croft on the drop of the green flag at the half-mile clay raceway, and went on to record his second win of the weekend after winning Saturday night at Dixie Speedway.

Austin Smith finished in second, with Sam Seawright in third, Croft in fourth and Dalton Cook in fifth.

In other action, Rucker Orr held off Ronnnie Johnson for the Steelhead Late Model feature win. Johnson in turn held off Oliver Gentry, who finished in third, with Marty Lunsford in fourth and Andy Morris in fifth.

Logan Palmer took a big lead in the Crate Late Model feature to get his second win of the weekend. Blant Duke followed in second ahead off Matthew Wyatt in third, Tanner Collin in fourth, and Colton Jackson in fifth.

Michael Blakeney took the win in the Open Wheel Modified feature. Luke Riddle came home in second, with Don Jenkins in third, Corey Elliott in fourth and Chris Gilbert in fifth.

With so many cars entered in the 602 Sportsman and Economy Bomber both classes were split into two features.

Shun Thomas passed Taylor Cole for the win in the first 602 Sportsman feature. Cole would hold second with Daniel Brewer in third, Wade Chandler in fourth and Matt Thompson in fifth.

Dink McKeehan led the way in the second Sportsman feature as he outdistanced Jay Cromer for the win. Josh Walker, Kyle Beck, and Bron Rutledge rounded out the top five.

Jeremy Williams found himself in victory lane in the first Bomber feature after the initial winner refused to tear down. That moved JoJo Morgan up to second with Blake Broome third, Jason Floyd fourth, and Dylan Armstrong fifth.

Joe Trantham took the win in the second Bomber feature ahead of Dan Meadows in second. Meadows held off Eric Hamby in third, Petey Cochran in fourth, and Cody Newton in fifth.

Kenny Clark was the man to beat in the Street Stinger feature, with Rick Ricks, Jason Young, Ernie Turner, and Jonathan Nelson rounding out the top five
