Dalton Cook flashes under the checkers to win Friday's $3,000 opener.
What won the race: Using an inside move out of turn four to overtake early leader Kyle Bryant on lap three, fourth-starting Dalton Cook of Smiths Station, Ala., paced the final 28 circuits to win Friday's $3,000 weekend opener at Southern Raceway. Cook scored his second Southern All Star Series victory of the season and third of his career.
Quotable: “It feels real good (to win), because I’m a little bit less in debt than I was when I showed up,” Cook said. “Thank the good Lord for getting us here and having a good night of racing; nothing crazy went on tonight, everybody goes home the way they showed up. I want to dedicate this race to a family member of mine who’s having some health issues, we just found out and I just hope that everything turns out good.”

After leading the first two laps from the pole, Kyle Bryant slowed from third on the ensuing restart to bring out the second yellow. Bryant was unable to continue. ... Jeremy Pate slowed on lap 19 to draw the fourth and final stoppage. ... Friday's feature lasted 29 minutes, with 13 running at the finish. ... Cale Finley scratched for the night while Shay Miller appeared to lose an engine after his first qualifying lap was good for 11th fastest. Miller also scratched. ... The Southern All Star Series concludes its 2023 season with Saturday's $5,000-to-win weekend finale at Southern. ... Watch live on Hunt the Front TV.
