LUCAMA, NC : Chase Scott held off a ferocious challenge from teammate Landen Lewis to score the victory in Saturday night’s INEX Legends feature at Southern National Motorsports Park.
Lewis, who is being coached by former NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series champion Ron Hornaday, led the opening lap after getting around pole sitter Eric Courtney. On the second lap, Scott made a daring pass and prevailed in a four-wide battle for the lead. Lewis then spent much of the race trying to get around Scott, including a bump-and-run attempt on the race’s final lap, but Scott survived and went on to win.
“I think the old man gave him a little schooling there on the little brake check coming to the checkers,” Scott said. “I knew it was coming, just kind of waited for it. We’ll be coming out to Carteret pretty soon to get ready for the INEX Nationals. This was a good warmup for Nationals. Good, fast racetrack so get out here and get an early one for Easter. It was a great race.”
Cameron Murray finished in third while Aaron Crumpler and Ryan Rackley rounded out the top-five.
