Casey Roberts (101) stalks G.R. Smith (22) on the final lap.
What won the race: Casey Roberts of Toccoa, Ga., slid under G.R. Smith of Mooresville, N.C., entering turn three on the final lap to grab a $5,000 Ultimate Super Late Model Series victory, his third of the season on the series.
Quotable: "It was real exciting there," Roberts said. "We just didn't give up."
