GROVETOWN, Ga. (April 16) - In what has to have been one of the more exciting races anywhere in the country this weekend the SAS East/ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series teams provided the fans with a fantastic night of entertainment with 3 and 4 wide racing most of the evening.

John Henderson Jr of SC won the event making it the largest single victory in his young racing careers as he stated in Victory Lane. Ricky Weeks led the event for a number of laps but was overtaken going into turn one during the 'true' double file restarts by none other than Casey Roberts. Roberts broke several laps later having differential trouble. Weeks took over the lead again with Henderson under him on more than one occassion. Weeks experienced a flat going into turn one with Henderson buried under him so far no one knows how the two didn't wreck. Henderson took the lead. Chip Brindle of GA now in second place was putting the heat on Brindle running him down, but the front end pushed coming off turn one allowing Henderson to stretch the lead once again. Henderson wins the biggest victory of his career!

"These guys did an incredible job tonight stated Promoter Bryan Stewart. We had one ULTIMATE event earlier this year at Modoc plus this one tonight at Gordon Park and they have both been absoutley fantastic. I can't see how there could better racing. I saw teams do things in race cars tonight you almost couldn't believe unless you actually saw it. Every promoter needs to take a strong look at this series. They don't just put on a race, they put on a show"!

Ivendent Lloyd of Florida won the top gun award setting a new track record. His loot for the top position was a $500 payday. However with Gordon Park Speeday now being promoted jointly with Lenny Hobbs and Bryan Stewart, they put an additional option on the table for Lloyd to choose yes or no. Lloyd decided he would draw for his starting position rather then take his guaranteed 1st place starting spot earning him another $500 for making that decision. Lloyd walked away with $1000 right of the bat plus his race earnings for the evening.

Chip Brindle although finishing second was another big winner of the night now taking the lead in the series points. In addition Brindle is leading the Rookie of the year points battle in only his 8th ever super late model event.
