LUCAMA, NC : Eric Courtney also became a first-time Southern National winner, scoring the victory in the Legends division over Emily Day.
“First win here, didn’t expect it to take this long, to be honest,” Courtney said. “It’s a long journey and it definitely shows hard work. No matter how hard you work, one day you’ll get here in first place. It was a great night overall. I would love for it to happen again and, hopefully, for the rest of the year. Hopefully, we can carry the momentum into the next couple races.”
Emily Day picked up her career-best Legends finish just minutes after her older brother, Caleb, picked up a victory in a Legends race at Carteret County Speedway – two weeks removed from a win at Southern National.
“I’m really proud of my brother racing down there,” Day said. “I had a really good car today. I was just short a little bit. I’m hoping to keep improving and get it up to victory lane. I just need a little more seat time, consistency, getting fast and getting to the front.”
Ethan Johnson inherited the Bandolero victory after the top-two finishers, Parker Frazier and Cameron Murray, were disqualified following post-race technical inspection.
Southern National Motorsports Park will be back in action on Saturday, April 28th in a race headlined by twin Limited Late Model features.
