Montana Dudley climbed atop his car to celebrate at East Alabama.
What won the race: Fourth-starting Montana Dudley of Phenix City, Ala., endured numerous restarts and led all 37 laps to win Sunday's $5,000 604 Crate Late Model portion of the National 100 event at East Alabama Motor Speedway. Dudley crossed the checkers 0.441 of a second ahead of Allen Styck in a race that was cut short by three laps because of time constraints.
Quotable: “My breather on the helmet fell off a couple laps into it and I knew it got hot in there, I was trying to figure out what the heck was going on and under that red flag I seen it fell off, but man, I’m excited” Dudley said. “Honestly, after I had my kids, I never thought I’d be able to afford to get back into (racing). Thank you to the Elliott and Sheffield family for giving me this opportunity to drive again. Success came a lot quicker than I thought, after taking five or six years off.”
Key notes: The seventh-starting Styck, of Americus, Ga., moved into the runner-up spot on lap 28 and trailed Dudley for the final 10 circuits. ... Sunday's feature was slowed by 13 separate incidents, the largest being a 15-minute red flag on lap 31 when fourth-running Tyler Thomason spun on a late restart attempt, sending fifth-running Mark Whitener spinning to avoid and slapping the outside wall with the driver's side; both drivers were unhurt, but unable to continue. ... Pole-starting Austin Horton moved into third on lap 28 and completed the podium. ... Cody Smith improved eight positions and finished fourth. ... Joseph Joiner gained nine spots and rounded-out the top-five finishers. ... EAMS points leader Jake Traylor overcame a flat left-rear on lap 30 and finished ninth. ... Sixth-running Ray Cook required a push to the pits under the lap-30 caution and called it a night. ... Matt Dooley pulled off while running second on lap 27. ... Ricky Culpepper spun from 10th on lap three and nosed into the inside wall, ending his day. ... Sunday's main event lasted 65 minutes, with 14 drivers completing 37 laps — shortened from 40.
On the move: Wiley McDaniel of Byron, Ga., started 20th and finished sixth.
