Quotable: “I appreciate it, man I ain’t never drove a Crate car so hard in my life,” an emotional Hardy said. “Ashton Winger is a dog. (He’s) such a wheelman, he raced me really clean. I just can’t say enough about this car. I had to change my driving style and I thought we were doomed, but that's why you never give up. (I) can't say enough about Ashton Winger racing me clean."
Key notes: The second-starting Winger, of Hampton, Ga., led four separate times for 21 laps (1-12, 20, 35-40, 42-43) before giving way to Hardy and finishing 0.338 of a second back; the two drivers exchanged the lead seven total times throughout the 50-lap feature. ... After utilizing a provisional starting position Richie Stephens used an outside move to take third place on the final lap. ... Will Roland improved nine positions and finished fourth, regaining the Crate Racin' USA Winter Shootout Series points lead. ... Zack Carley gained six spots and completed the top-five finishers. ... After winning $1,000 prelims on Thursday and Friday, Tucker Anderson ran as high as fourth before slipping to finish seventh. ... Doug Horton started 22nd and rounded-out the top 10. ... Freddie Carpenter slowed from 18th to draw the race's fifth and final caution on lap 39. ... The fourth yellow flew when fifth-running Nevin Gainey tagged the outside wall and slowed before calling it a night. ... The second stoppage occurred on lap seven when Matt Henderson slowed from seventh and pulled off. ... The first caution came out on lap two when Matt Dooley lost his right-rear wheel and tire. ... Saturday's feature lasted 29 minutes, with 16 drivers completing 50 laps and 18 running at the finish.
