Cody Mahoney (4) edged Jason Jameson (12) for victory at Florence.
What won the race: In a wild, lead-swapping finish, Cody Mahoney of Madison, Ind., nipped Jason Jameson of Lawrenceburg, Ind., on the final circuit of the 50-lap feature event, earning a $5,000 Spring 50 victory at Florence Speedway. Mahoney, the last of four different leaders, went under Jameson entering turn one on a final-lap restart, but Jameson regained the lead on the backstretch. Mahoney then dove low in turn three, slid in front of Jameson exiting turn four and hung on to win a near photo finish.
Quotable: "That last lap, I pretty much had to go for broke and go where Jameson didn't. Luckily we prevailed," Mahoney said. "I've lost so many of these races on the last lap ... finally I was able to put (it) together and seal the deal."
Key notes: Two late cautions, including on the final lap, set up the late-race dramatics. ... Mahoney, who restarted third with three laps remaining, notched the richest win of his career. ... Just a handful of drivers were running at the finish on the rugged racing surface. ... Polesitter Bobby Pierce broke leading on lap 18. ... Dustin Linville, who led after Pierce, had a flat tire on lap 46 that ended his race. ... Pierce and Linville battled closely early in the race, making contact once at the flagstand after swapping the lead. ... Hall of Famer John Gill won the Crate Late Model feature.
Winner's sponsors: Mahoney's Bowman Motorsports Club 29 Race Car has a Jay Dickens Racing Engine and sponsorship from Smoker Friendly, Valvoline and Diamond Auto Sales.
Points chase: The event opened Florence's 2016 season.
