Logan Roberson gets rolling before his big sweep at PPMS.
What won the race: Grabbing the lead from Michael Norris on lap 30, Logan Roberson of Waynesboro, Va., paced the final 21 laps and cruised to win Saturday's 33rd annual Jook George Steel City Classic feature at Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Motor Speedway, earning $7,010. The victory is the fourth of the year for Roberson, as he extended his RUSH Crate Late Model Series points lead.
Quotable: "That last restart killed everything it had in me," Roberson said."Those restarts usually don't go right for me. Kyle (Lukon) was really good and I gave it everything I had. Luckily it worked out tonight. I left Michael (Norris) a lane up there then under red my dad said he flipped and I thought 'Oh man that sucks.' I enjoy racing with Michael, Kyle, and Daryl Charlier — they are all respectable racers."
Key notes: 2019 event winner Kyle Lukon of Burgettstown, Pa., moved into the second position on lap 32 and finished 0.795 seconds back. ... Tim Shaffer of Aliquippa, Pa., moved into the third position on lap 45 and finished there. ... After leading the first five laps from the outside front-row, Daryl Charlier of Midway, Pa., faded in the closing laps and finished 10th. ... Defending winner of the last two Jook George Steel City Classics, Michael Norris of Server, Pa., led laps 6-29 but tangled with a slower car on lap 31 and got upside down and into the catch fence. A red-flag cleanup was required but Norris climbed out of the Nico Dabecco-owned car unhurt. ... Saturday's feature, a race that honors the former driver and car owner and member of the Pittsburgh Circle Track Hall of Fame, was slowed by multiple cautions, including a lengthy red flag on lap 31 and lasted 43 minutes, with 13 competitors completing all 50 laps. ... Kayla McManus, a 21-year-old from Elizabeth, Pa., won the non-qualifiers' race in her first tour event.
On the move: Justin Chance of Lexington, Ohio, started 22nd and finished fourth.
Winner's sponsors: Roberson’s CVR Race Cars entry carries sponsorship from Gunter’s Honey, Franklin Enterprises, Clary’s Used Cars, RBS Auto Sales, Blue Ridge Treescape Service, and Pro Fabrication.
