Racing set to resume at Caraway; Duggins comes off Challengers victory

SOPHIA – The next regular racing night at the track comes Saturday with the Grand National Super Series holding two 50-lap races.

There also will be competition in regular divisions such as Challengers, 602 Mods, UCARs, Bootleggers and Mod 4s.

Brody Duggins edged Dalton Ledbetter to win the Challengers feature in the David Saunders Memorial competition May 11 at Caraway Speedway.

Duggins moved to the front by passing Brian Rose on the 18th lap and held on for less than a 1-second advantage on Ledbetter.

It was a double-points feature so Duggins expanded his lead in the track standings.

Rose ended up in third place, followed by Blake Slupe and Joseph Ciszek among 13 drivers. Rose and Ledbetter were tops in 10-lap qualifying heats.

** Jimmy Crigger won two events by capturing the Mod 4 race and the Enduros competition.

Crigger’s triumph in the Mod 4 event had him ahead of Rudy Hartley and third-place Jeff Linkous. Then Crigger was the clear winner in 50 laps of Enduros.

** In 602 Modifieds, the victory went to Josh Lowder across 35 laps. Billy Gregg lost the lead on the 11th lap, finishing third behind runner-up Jaxson Casper.

** In UCARs, Jason Richmond finished in first place ahead of Ron Mock, with the next three spots belonging to Josh Phillips, Daniel Hughes and Jeremy Moose. There were 21 cars in the race.

** Corey Rose pulled away from fast qualifier Bentley Black to win in Bootleggers. Brad Martin was third.
