Derek Ellis takes the checkers for his $3,000 victory at Rome.
What won the race: After polesitter Riley Hickman of Ooltewah, Tenn., spun in the second turn on the race's initial start, second-starting Derek Ellis of Chatsworth, Ga., took command and led the entire distance for a $3,000 victory in Rome Speedway's season-opening event.
Key notes: The feature was slowed by six cautions. ... Second-row starters Jason Hiett of Oxford, Ala., and Ronnie Johnson of Chattanooga, Tenn., battled for second throughout the race. ... After being forced to the tail by his initial spin, Hickman rallied back through the field before dropping back to the tail late in the race. ... Mike Bruner won the Limited Late Model feature and Shane Smith the Crate Late Model feature.
On the move: Clint Smith of Senoia, Ga., improved eight positions from his 13th starting spot to complete the top five.
Winner's sponsors: Ellis drives a No. 99 Longhorn Chassis with a Vic Hill Racing Engine and sponsorship from Autozone, Base Racing Fuels and Ellis Contracting.
Points chase: Jason Croft of Woodstock, Ga., won Dixie-Rome Super Late Model title in 2014.
