Casey Roberts Back In Victory Lane At Southern Raceway Bash At The Beach
RACE RECAP: MILTON, FL - The Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series presented by Max Fab ran race number two Saturday night at Tom Lowry’s Southern Raceway in Milton, FL.,the 3rd Annual Bash at the Beach and Casey Roberts picked up where he left off two years ago and was back in victory lane taking the $7,000 in the 60 lap feature. Two years ago Roberts swept the weekend and this year with the doubleheader he said driver error played into the Friday night finish, so he just parked it to save his car and be ready for the next night. The plan worked as he led all 60 laps but it was not easy as Neil Baggett and David Breazeale all made a run at him with nothing to show for it.
David Breazeale of Four Corners, MS., finished second, Friday night winner Neil Baggett of Columbus, MS., third, fourth to Riley Hickman of Ooltewah, TN., fourth and fifth to Zach Leonhardi of Emerson, GA.
Finishing in sixth place was Ryan Crane, seventh to JR Moseley, an eighth place to J C Wilson, a ninth place to Joseph Joiner and tenth to Billy Franklin.
RACE TIDBITS: Baggett, Hickman, Joiner, Leonhardi, Moseley and JC Wilson all these drivers finished in the top ten in both nights of the Bash at the Beach. The series will return to the gulf coast track on Saturday & Sunday, August 31st & September 1st for a pair of events paying $4,000 & $5,000 to win.
