What won the race: Polesitter Josh Rice of Verona, Ky., overtook fellow front-row starter Zack Dohm on lap 12 at Florence Speedway and cruised to his second straight victory in the track's 47th annual Spring 50. Rice, who briefly dove into the lead on lap 11 with Dohm crossing back over to maintain the lead, earned $10,000 at the home track where he's been dominant in recent seasons.
Quotable: "It's good to be back at Florence. It's been a long winter," Rice said, later adding that "hopefully we can go somewhere else besides Florence and win, but it's good to be home."
Key notes: Winner Josh Rice lapped all but four competitors. ... Super Late Model novice Adam Stricker was an impressive runner-up, 1.681 seconds behind the winner; he cut a three-second lead to less than one second with 13 laps remaining but never made a serious bid for the lead ... Zack Dohm led 11 laps and finished third. ... Fourth-finishing Jesse Lay scored his first top-five at Florence since Aug. 28, 2021 and first top-five in a Florence special in more than nine seasons. ... The lone caution appeared on the 22nd lap for fourth-running Bill Sheets. ... Trevor Landrum scratched from the feature. ... The Spring 50, postponed twice because of weather, was scheduled to follow racing with a concert featuring the band Danstunes. … The next Super Late Model event at Florence is May 6's Ralph Latham Memorial, a $15,000-to-win event on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series.
On the move: David Webb of Nicholasville, Ky., started 11th and finished fifth.
