Quotable: “We kinda played the tire game all night long. Never being here, we didn’t really know what tires to put on … what compound to run,” said Carswell. “Jacob and Robert and all of them, they got together and figured out what compound we needed … and a few phone calls from some good friends and they kept us up front all night long.”

Along with Saturday’s win, he finished second at East Lincoln Speedway in Stanley, N.C., o March 17 and second at Lancaster (S.C) Speedway on March 31. … The series returns to Sumter on July 28 and Nov. 10.
