Payton Freeman waves after emerging from his car.
What won the race: Inheriting the lead when Kenny Collins retired on the 19th lap, Payton Freeman of Commerce, Ga., led the rest of the way Thursday at Tri-County Racetrack, holding off a hard-charging David Payne in the closing laps to for a $5,700 victory in the inaugural Russell Thomas Memorial.
Key notes: Freeman notched his second Super Late Model victory of the season. ... He previously won April 30 at Boyd's Speedway in Ringgold, Ga. ... Freeman has six runner-up finishes, including two on the DIRTcar Summer Nationals. ... Tri-County runner-up David Payne finished 0.921 of a second behind the winner. ... Five drivers finished on the lead lap. ... Kenny Collins picked up $500 for winning the quick six dash. ... The night paid homage to Russell Thomas, a former Georgia racer and 1995 track champion at Whitter, N.C.'s Smoky Mountain Raceway, who died in December. … Thomas drove the No. 57, hence the 57-lap count and winner’s purse. … Jason Deal drove a throwback version of a former blue-and-yellow Thomas car.
