SOPHIA – Jeremy Mayfield and AJ Henriksen put on quite the show in the first of two 50-lappers for the Grand National Super Series teams last Saturday night at Caraway Speedway.

Mayfield edged Hedriksen, the fast qualifier, by .306 seconds. Kevin Korner finished third ahead of Donnie Doster, Bob Schadt, Lauren Butner, Larry Wilcox and Joe Wilder.

Henriksen had a better result in the second feature, winning in front of Mayfield followed by the same order as the first race for third through eighth place.

** In Challengers, Dalton Ledbetter edged points leader Brody Duggins for the victory, with Justin Hathcock in third place and fast qualifier Gary Ledbetter Sr. next.

** In 602 Modifieds, Dean Lowder set fast time in qualifying then drove from mid-pack to take the lead from Cody Norman on lap 13. Lowder captured the victory in front of his son, Josh Lowder, by slightly more than two seconds. Jaxson Casper recovered from a spin and worked his way to third place ahead of Norman, Mitchell Wright, Ryan Kuhlthau and Junior Harvill.

** Daniel Hughes was dominant in the two UCAR features on the 25th anniversary of the first UCAR races. In a 10-lapper that counted as a “points paying” race, Hughes bested Steven Collins and Ron Mock with Jeremy Moose and Jason Richmond rounding out the top five.

The second UCAR feature allowed past UCAR stars that had moved up to other divisions to compete against the “regulars.” Being a champion or winner in other divisions did little to take any “glory” from the weekly competitors as Hughes prevailed ahead of Jason Gallimore, AJ Biscoe, Mock and Richard Jones.

** In the 12-lap Bootleggers feature, Bentley Black was the winner ahead of Corey Rose.

** The Allison Legacy Series features 5/8 scale Winston Cup look-alikes, with Andon Mendenhall the winner.

** Jason Garwood topped Jeff Linkous, Rudy Hartley and Tommy Raino in the Mod 4 feature.
