Casey Roberts picks up $5,000 at the King of the Carolinas.
What won the race: Polesitter Casey Roberts of Toccoa, Ga., led all 40 laps for a $5,000 victory at Carolina Speedway, his first career Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series victory.
Key notes: Robert's last victory came in the Southern Nationals Bonus Series-sanctioned Tar Heel 53 at Tri-County Racetrack on Oct. 3. ... Former NASCAR Sprint Cup driver Jeremy Mayfield made his Late Model debut, but was the race's first retiree after getting into the turn-one wall on the third lap. ... Johnny Pursley, Anthony Sanders, Jonathan Edwards and Kevin Wilson tangled on the ensuing restart. ... Robbie Bailey drew another caution on lap 11. ... A final yellow flew on lap 38 for Kyle Pierce. ... Runner-up finisher Chris Ferguson has three Carolina Clash Series victories on the season at Volunteer Speedway, Lancaster Speedway and Wythe Raceway. ... Third-place finisher Ross Bailes is the 2014 Crate Late Model track champion at Carolina Speedway. ... The race served as the seventh and final round of the Countdown to the Cup Championship on the Carolina Clash.
Winner's sponsors: Roberts' Jimmy and Ann Cushman-owned Longhorn Chassis is powered by a Custom Race Engine and carries sponsorship from Cushman Paint & Body, Hoosier Racing Tire, M&S Concrete, Schaeffer Oil, Starrette Trucking and VP Racing Fuels.
Points chase: With his fifth-place finish, Kennie Compton of Bland, Va., clinched the 2014 Carolina Clash title over Dennis Franklin. Compton entered Saturday's event with a 10-point lead in the series standings and held on to claim the crown without the benefit of a feature win during the season.
