Burton Captures First Late Model Victory At Dillon Motor Speedway

DSC_0476Dillon, S.C., March 13, 2013: Dillon Motor Speedway hosted the 8th Annual South Carolina Clash 150 on Saturday, March 9.

Harrison Burton, 12-year old son of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Jeff Burton led every lap in the Pro All Star Series (PASS) Pro division. The young driver will be racing against the local Late Model drivers later this season. Trevor Noles was the runner up, and Jeff Batten finished a hard fought third place. Joey Padgett was able to hang on for a fourth place finish. Nick Robinson who raced in the Carolina Eastern Mini Cup Association a few years ago at the speedway rounded out the top-five. Local racer Hayes Goodson finished sixth.

The second division that took to the track was the PASS Super Late Models that battled it out in a 150-lap feature. In a thrilling photo finish, Austin Theriault in a Brad Keselowski Racing car edged last year’s winner Preston Peltier to capture the win. The margin of victory was .120 seconds which is the closest finish in series history. Kevin Powell rounded out the top-three. Brandon Lynn finished fourth, and NASCAR driver Clay Rogers battled his way through the field after an unscheduled pit stop to finish fifth.

Hunter Moody took the checkered flag in the wild Allison Legacy Series finish. Casey Hillenburg just barely held on for a second place finish. Justin LaDuke finished third, Logan Jones fourth and Tyler Farris finished fifth.

Dillon Motor Speedway will be back in action on Saturday, April 6 when the Rev-Oil Pro Cup Series visits the Pee Dee. The stars of the Super Truck division will kick off their season as well.
