What won the race: Polesitter Cody Smith of Holt, Fla., led all the way to capture the first-ever event on the new Southeastern Crate Series.
Key notes: Three cautions slowed the action, including for Rege Hallett getting into the frontstretch wall and for a spin by Larry Havens. ... The first-year series is scheduled to visit Northwest Florida, Southern Raceway in Milton, Fla., and Flomaton (Ala.) Speedway. ... Jay D. Wells is among series organizers. ... The series champion will receive a wooden alligator carved by champion chainsaw artist Dayton Scoggins.
Points chase: The series plans an unusual points scheme with the lowest point total winning the championship. Feature winners receive 1 point followed by 2 points for second and so on. Drives who miss events will receive one point more than the last-place finisher. Drivers can drop their two highest points totals at the end of the season.
