Smith, Conner win with racing return to Concord

Pro All Stars Series (PASS) South Super Late Model points leader Zane Smith took the lead following contact between leaders Roger Lee Newton and Jeff Fultz with 11 laps to go and led the rest of the way to win Friday night’s Old Glory 125 at Concord Speedway. Smith’s victory came in the first race back at the venerable half-mile speedway in nearly three years.

“I don’t know how I won this one, I told them on the radio ‘I don’t know how I’m going pass them, but I’m going to figure out a way to get by’,” said Smith in victory lane afterwards. “To be honest, I kinda saw it coming because they [Newton and Fultz] were running so close. We didn’t qualify great, but we were consistent and I knew we would be good in the race. And, luckily we were.”

In qualifying, Jody Measamer scorched the half-mile triangular speedway with an average lap speed of over 116 miles per hour. Following the top 10 qualifiers redraw, Measamer would start third behind Roger Lee Newton and Tate Fogleman.
Newton jumped to a quick lead at the start, but Ryan Moore and Corey Lajoie were the two cars on the move in the early going. After starting 20th, Moore made his way around Brandon Ward and into the top 10 on lap 34. Just two laps later, 11th place starter Lajoie passed Spencer Davis to move into the top five.

On the final restart, Moore, who was running third at the time, spun entering turn one collecting Ward and Matt Craig. Smith led the rest of the way to claim the win over Fultz, Davis, Jared Irvan, and Fogleman. Rounding out the top 10 were Peltier, Newton, Derek Scott, Jr., Campbell, and Trevor Noles.

Kodie Conner led all 50 laps to take his 4th PASS Pro Late Model win of the season over Austin Thompson, Adam Welch, Chandler Smith, and Ryan Krachun.

Sonny Schofen took the Mid-Atlantic Street Stock win over a 25 car starting field with Bryan Thomas and Gary Ledbetter completing the top three.

Burt Myers held off his brother, Jason, for his third KOMA Unwind Modified Madness win of the season.

The PASS South Super Late Models hit the track again for 150 laps on Saturday, June 6 at South Boston Speedway, along with Twin 75s for the NASCAR Late Model Stocks and action for the USAC Eastern Midgets and Legends.
