LUCAMA, NC (March 4) – Defending Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Model champion, Matt Craig captured the lead from Spencer Davis on lap 16 and never looked back en route to his second career series win in the Dogwood 150 Saturday afternoon at Southern National Motorsports Park. Following his win, Craig laid down a challenge amidst a furious chassis builder battle going on in the South’s oldest Super Late Model tour.
“This was just an awesome car and I can’t thank my crew enough for all the hard work they put in to it,” said Craig, driver of the C&C Boilers Sales & Service Chevrolet. “Everybody thinks the Furys are the best, but they just got waxed by a brand new Hamke. We struggled a bit at Dillon, but we’ve got it figured out. He [Noles] got us on a restart, but I laid the hammer down off two and cruised from there.”
In qualifying, Craig just missed out on the track record to claim his first career PASS quick qualifying time with a speed of 97.853miles per hour. Following the top 10 qualifiers redraw, Craig would start third, while Davis and Tanner Thorson moved to the front row.
