Christian Thomas poses in victory lane after earning his first career Ultimate Southeast Series victory.
What won the race: Second-starting Christian Thomas of Wake Forest, N.C., led all 40 laps Saturday at Lake View Motor Speedway for his first career Ultimate Southeast Series feature victory. The late entrant collected $5,000.
Quotable: “We were getting ready to load the car and going to run the Limited race up the road; at 1:30 this afternoon we changed our mind, pulled the car out of the hauler, pulled the Limited engine and dropped in the Super engine," Thomas said. "That’s why we rolled in here late, but I guess it worked out. My car would take off really good on restarts, I could build a good lead. Thanks to Dustin (Mitchell) and Ben (Watkins) for running us clean when they would get back to us.”
Key notes: Pole-starting Dustin Mitchell finished 2.222 seconds back. ... Ben Watkings, the winner of last week's season opener at Lancaster Motor Speedway, finished third. ... Zack Mitchell, who swept last year's series races at Lake View, advanced three positions and finished fourth. ... Jeff Smith gained three spots and finished eighth. ... Saturday's feature, the fifth-ever series stop at Lake View, was slowed by six cautions and lasted 32 minutes, with 14 drivers completing 40 laps. ... The Ultimate Southeast Series returns to Lake View on Aug. 12.
On the move: Dennis Franklin of Gaffney, S.C., started 17th and finished fifth.
Winner's sponsors: Thomas’ Rocket Chassis is powered by a Durham Racing Engine and sponsored by JS Sewell, Custom Logging, Victory Lane Quick Oil Change, Rustic Oak, Racing For Heroes, Smoke Shop Rifle Company, Electric Signs & Lighting and Graphics Unlimited.
Points chase: After Lake View: 1. Ben Watkins (68); 2. Dennis Franklin (64); T3. Greg Clark (57); T3. Anthony Sanders (57); T5. Ethan Wilson (55); T5. Willie Milliken (55).
