SEYMOUR, Tenn. - Cory Hedgecock added to his accomplishments at 411 Motor Speedway in Seymour, Tennessee on Saturday afternoon.

The Loudon, Tennessee driver scored the Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series win and the $15,000 payday.

Hedgecock grabbed the lead from Chickamauga, Georgia’s Dale McDowell on lap 39 of the 71 lap feature. From there, Hedgecock paced the field the rest of the way en route to his first career Spring Nationals victory.

“To win in front of a hometown crowd like this in a big event with the names here… it’s always good to win here at 411,” said Hedgecock. “I’m just happy, grateful, every which way and above. I can’t thank all of my people (that support my race team) enough.”

Ricky Weiss finished in second, with Jensen Ford in third, McDowell in fourth, and Evans, Georgia’s Brandon Overton in fifth.

A total of five caution flags slowed the action. Caden Mullinax drew the opening yellow for his spin on lap 9. The next caution flag flew on lap 19 for a tangle on the frontstretch involving Jason Welshan and Kyle Strickler. Michael Chilton then slowed to bring out a caution flag on lap 21 before Mike Marlar slowed on the track with damage and a flat tire on lap 22. The final caution flag then flew on the ensuing lap 22 restart when Colbert, Georgia’s Kenny Collins spun.

The Schaeffer’s Oil Spring Nationals Series returns to action on Friday March 31 at Buckshot Speedway in Clanton, Alabama moving to East Alabama Motor Speedway in Phenix City, Alabama on Saturday, April 1.
