Hudson O'Neal takes the checkers for his $3,000 victory.
What won the race: Second-starting Hudson O'Neal of Martinsville, Ind., survived a pair of off-track excursions, including a lap-21 incident with Cody Mahoney while battling for the lead, to score his first career Super Late Model victory Saturday night at Brownstown Speedway. His Ultimate Battle of the Bluegrass Series victory paid $3,000.
Quotable: “I take all of the blame for what happened in turn two, and I apologize to Cody Mahoney for it,” O’Neal said of his late-race restart scrape at the front of the field. “This is not the way I want to win a race, but even at that, I’m still happy to hold this $3,000 check and take the win at my home track, and my Dad’s home track. I hope this is the first of many more to come.”
Key notes: O'Neal is the son of former track and Lucas Oil Series champion Don O'Neal. ... Hudson O'Neal and Mahoney hooked together on a lap-21 restart when O'Neal dove underneath the leader in turn one and the frontrunners made contact exiting turn two; O'Neal slid sideways but maintained control, while Mahoney banged together with Tim Tungate as he fought to straighten his car and ended up spinning between turns three and four. ... O'Neal also went over the banking in prelims and early in the feature. ... Alan Magner of North Vernon, Ind., finished second. ... Mahoney broke the track record during qualifying with a 12.728. ... Former track champ Steve Barnett was airlifted to an Indianapolis hospital after a violent barrel-rolling accident in a heat race; he was in stable condition and undergoing tests, according to family and series reports (see DirtWire).
