Ivedent Lloyd Jr. captured his first Southern All Star victory since 2010.
What won the race: Dominating the second half of the race, third-starting Ivedent Lloyd Jr. of Ocala, Fla., notched his third career Southern All Star victory, and first since 2010, in collecting $4,000 at Waycross (Ga.) Motor Speedway. Lloyd beat polesitter and long-time south Georgia veteran Cecil Eunice of Blackshear, Ga., to the checkers, denying Eunice a late-career first series victory.
Key notes: Outside front-row starter Russell Brown Jr., spun after contact with polesitter Cecil Eunice on the first lap; on the second start, Brown led for about 15 laps until Eunice caught him in lapped traffic and they made contact; Brown eventually parked with a bent tie rod. ... Lloyd led the second half of the race. ... Nine drivers completed all 40 laps at the half-mile oval. ... Joey Armistead's night ended after three laps while his father, Joe, finished fourth. ... Bo Shirley retired after 10 laps. ... The series made just its fourth-ever visit to the southeast Georgia oval. ... Waycross runs a limited racing schedule with primarily Limited Late Models on its race programs, one reason for the modest car count.
On the move: Todd Morrow picked up three positions in starting 10th and finishing seventh.
Winner's sponsors: Lloyd's Snow Bros. Race Car has a Race Engine Design powerplant and is sponsored by IBS Manufacturing, Augusta Delivery Service, SIS Southway, AFCO, RaceCar Engineering and Hoosier Dirt Tire South.
Points chase: Points leader and fifth-place finisher Riley Hickman stretched his lead over Dylan Ames, the top series rookie.
