What won the race: Fourth-starting Matthew Nance of Ronda, N.C., topped Ricky Weeks to win Saturday’s Blue Ridge Outlaw Late Models feature at Friendship Motor Speedway, earning $1,200 for his second series win of the season. Tommy Jones finished third in rugged conditions.
Quotable: “We drew that four and we didn’t know if we was gonna be too good there,” Nance said. “It was so rough, the racetrack was, and it was kinda one lane. (I) didn’t know if we could pass of if the car would even last all 25 laps. I don’t know what lap we actually took the lead on, but I ran it pretty hard until we got the lead and was able to back it down and tried to save our stuff the best we could.”
