Casey Roberts leads the final lap of his flag-to-flag victory.
What won the race: Polesitter Casey Roberts of Toccoa, Ga., led all the way for a $3,000 victory, taking the checkers ahead of a rallying Kennie Compton Jr. of Bland, Va.
Key notes: Compton closed to Roberts' back bumper with five laps remaining and dueled with the race-long leader until the finish, but his last-ditch effort came up short. ... Local ace David Payne overtook Shawn Chastain for third on the final lap. ... The feature was slowed by six cautions; action was slowed twice on the race's initial start and then again on laps 6, 12, 25 and 28. ... Andy Standridge scratched from the feature lineup. ... The track drew a record crowd. ... Promoter Ray Cook celebrates the Fourth of July with a pair of Southern Nationals Bonus Races. ... Following Friday's event at Tri-County, the tour moves to Tazewell (Tenn.) Speedway for a $5,000-to-win event. ... Jason Deal led the final two laps of the Crate Late Model feature.
On the move: Compton rallied from his 15th starting spot to record a runner-up finish.
Winner's sponsors: Roberts's Longhorn Chassis, owned by Jimmy and Ann Cushman, is powered by a Custom Race Engine and sponsored by Cushman Paint & Body, Hoosier Racing Tire, M&S Concrete, Schaeffer Oil, Starrette Trucking and VP Racing Fuels.
