Beard, Black claim Caraway features

SOPHIA – Coy Beard and Tony Black were winners of twin features in the Late Models division Saturday night at Caraway.

Two races were contested across each of six divisions.

Beard won the first of the 35-lap Late Models races, leading from the start. Beard was second in the second feature, unable to get around Black.

The winner in the Modifieds action was Cody Norman for his first victories in the division. He won both races, leading from the front in the first race and coming from the rear in the second event.

In Mini Stocks, Johnny Baker and Jimmy Crigger were the winners. Crigger was the runner-up in the first race before improving one spot.

In the Challenger class, Cory Rose posted a wire-to-wire victory. Matthew Smith, a grandson of former Caraway driver Lowe Smith, was the winner in the second Challenger race.

In the UCars, Steven Collins and Corey Rose made it across the line first to win the respective races. Steven Collins was the runner-up in both of the races, which drew a field of 16 drivers.

The Bandolero races produced the same winner in each case, with Bryson Brinkley capturing those.

The next night of regular racing at the speedway is scheduled for April 16.
