What won the race: Seth Wimpey of Blue Ridge, Ga., won Saturday’s Crate Late Model portion of the Bama Brawl at Fort Payne Motor Speedway, outrunning Kasey Hall and Sam Seawright for his first victory of the season. The United Championship Racing Alliance-sanctioned race paid $2,500 to win.
Key notes: Wimpey inherited the pole starting position when original polesitter Jesse Lowe and fellow front-row starter Kasey Hall were docked a row after they were unable to get a clean start. … Lowe eventually had to pit because of a flat tire. … Sam Seawright, who was injured during a Friday afternoon practice incident and taken to a local hospital to be evaluated, returned to the track, started in the rear of the feature and finished third. ... The event was rescheduled after its original Feb. 23-24 date was rained out. ... The tour made the first of three scheduled stops at Fort Payne on the 2019 season. … The event honored the late Eddie Davis, a former announcer at Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, Ala., and marketing manager for the United Championship Racing Alliance.
On the move: Sam Seawright of Rainesville, Ala., finished third after starting at the tail of the 13-car field.
Winner's sponsors: Wimpey’s VanDrake Racing-backed Black Diamond Chassis is sponsored by Weeks Tires, W.E.Hardscapes & Masonry, Stone Depot, 99Inc., Tree Daddy and High Country Pest Control.
