Jeremy Shaw heads to a $5,000 victory at North Alabama Speedway.
What won the race: Outside front row starter Jeremy Shaw of Millport, Ala., grabbed the lead on lap two and led the rest of the way to pick up a $5,000 Durrence Layne Chevrolet Series victory Saturday at North Alabama Speedway as he drove a 60-lap triumph in the tour’s third annual King of Crates.
Quotable: “This is unbelievable,” said Shaw. “Jason Steele called me earlier this week to fill in for Chase Washington, who wasn’t feeling well, and I had been in retirement for a couple of years. They gave me the best handling race car I’ve ever been in, and I want to dedicate this win to Chase. This one’s for him. It’s been seven years to the day that I won another Durrence Layne $5,000-to-win race, and I guess I was thinking too much because the second-place car came up and hit me in the door. That gave me a wake-up call, so I stepped up the pace and I didn’t see them again.”
Key notes: Shaw drove the No. 38 normally piloted Chase Washington. He dedicated the victory to him. … Polesitter Dustin Harris of Flintville, Tenn., led the opening lap. … A crash on a lap-four restart collected a dozen cars, but most were able to continue. … Christian Hanger of Winchester, Tenn., was up to second before dropping back to fourth on a late restart. ... The third annual King of Crates kicked off Friday with Jake Knowles of Rome, Ga., winning a 40-lap, $2,000-to-win main event. … Knowles won last year’s King of Crates finale. … The series leader has five wins and 11 top-five finishes this season. … Shaw is the ninth different winner in 14 series races this season. … The series still has weekend doubleheaders at Talladega (Ala.) Short Track and Florida’s Southern Raceway before closing out the season at Mississippi’s Magnolia Motor Speedway on Thanksgiving weekend.
On the move: Christian Hanger of Winchester, Tenn., started 19th and finished fourth.
Winner's sponsors: Shaw drove a Barry Wright Race Car with sponsorship from Addie Grace Properties, Paul Smithey Construction, Bud Coley Trucking, Steele’s Dive and Ken Jeter Store & Restaurant Supply.
Points chase: Entering the weekend, Jake Knowles (1,124 points) of Rome, Ga., led Cruz Skinner (1,070), Wil Herrington (986), Oakley Johns (970) and Tyler Wood (950).
