What won the race: Winning on his second tour in as many nights, David Breazeale of Four Corners, Miss., earned $4,000 Saturday in Southern All Star Series action at Thunderhill Raceway. Breazeale, who won Friday's Comp Cams Series event in Paragould, Ark., led all 40 laps from his pole position to take the checkers at Thunderhill ahead of Dane Dacus of Lakeland, Tenn., and Eric Hickerson of Linden, Tenn.
Quotable: “I knew once we fired up, we’d be fine as log as we run laps,” said Breazeale. “I knew the 98 (Eric Hickerson) he was gonna be at a disadvantage on that outside running through that water. It just was what it was. We’ve had a lot of rain. The main thing was to get a good start and just set a pace and hope we could get through lapped traffic without much trouble.”
Key notes: Thirteen cars finished the race. ... It was Breazeale's first trip to Thunderhill since 2010. ... Breazeale won the previous weekend on yet another circuit with a Mississippi State Championship Challenge Series triumph at Magnolia Motor Speedway in Columbus, Miss. ... Runner-up Dane Dacus was a previous series winner in 2017 at Thunderhill. ... Jason Welshan spun in turn three to bring out the first caution. ... Joseph Faulkner tagged the wall during qualifying, but managed to piece his machine back together in order to take the green in the feature and make a handful of laps. ... Jim Gray was in staging to pull onto the track for the A-main, when mechanical trouble forced him to scratch from the feature. ... The series made its third and final stop of the season at the Summertown, Tenn., oval. … Saturday's race honored the former Thunderhill promoter who died in early ’17.
On the move: Making a rare Super Late Model start this season, David Gentry, of Murfreesboro, Tenn., rallied from 17th to finish 10th.
Winner's sponsors: Breazeale drove a new Billy Franklin-owned Rocket Chassis powered by a Clements Racing Engine and sonsored by Franklin Enterprises and Franklin Fence & Erosion.
Points chase: Heading to Thunderhill, Austin Horton (922 points) of Newnan, Ga., led Tristan Sealy (804), Eric Hickerson (776), T.J. Reaid (732) and Brad Skinner (606).
