What won the race: Zack Mitchell of Enoree, S.C. regained the lead from Michael Brown on the 28th lap at Lavonia Speedway to capture Friday's $5,000 Buck Simmons Memorial on the Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series. Brown, who led laps 23-27, finished 0.405 seconds back as the runner-up and moved into the series points lead.
Quotable: "They put a good race car up under me. We just had a little bit of trouble getting around lapped cars," Mitchell said. "But I mean, that's part of it. ... we've been struggling with this thing the past couple of months, but I believe we've got it back on track."
Key notes: Zack Mitchell and Michael Brown put on a show while battling for the lead. ... Brown was able to overtake Mitchell for the top spot on lap 23 only to have Mitchell get back around to lead the remaining 13 laps to victory. ...
