HARTWELL - Every season Hartwell Speedway in Hartwell, GA has one of those rare nights when everything seems to fall into place for a night so full of excitement people will be talking about it for weeks.

Saturday night was one of those nights, as Royce Bray powered his way to the lead of the SECA Late Model feature, and went on to score the victory.

Bray qualified on the outside of the front row for the feature, but from the start, he had his mind on the top spot. He put on a power move, sticking the nose of his racer all the way to the inside wall, looking for a little moisture on the Hartwell dirt. He would rocket past leader Steve “Hot Rod” LaMance, and would move away from there. LaMance had to work hard to hold off Greg Pilgrim for second place. Chris Cape came home in fourth with Grant Jordan in fifth.

In other action, David McCoy added yet another Limited Late Model trophy to his already full trophy case, this time holding Jimmy Johnson at bay to pick up the win. Bubba Russell finished in third, with Keith Freeman in fourth and Brant Carey in fifth.

Gerald Stanley held back a hard charging field of Hobby Stocks to score the victory. Rod Roberts motored home in second, with Mike Davidson in third, George Reese in fourth and Robin Collins in fifth.

Michael Segars crossed under the checkers first to grab the Modified Street victory. Rusty Jordan finished in second, followed by John Teasley in third, Kole Hardy in fourth and Jennifer Everett in fifth.

In Stock V8 action, George Fortson picked up the victory over Rocky Jones, who finished in second. Chase York, Ray Foskey and Ricky Mauldin rounded out the top five.

J.J. Garrett was the winner in the Stock Four Cylinder feature. Brad Brown crossed under the checkered flag in second, followed by Dustin Bales in third, Shane Strickland in fourth and Aaron Calvert in fifth.

Jessica Still came away with the victory in the Young Guns feature. Adam Partain followed for second, with Mallrie Burdette, Johnathan Cheesman and Jeremy Hicks rounding out the top five.

Robbie Cook took top honors in the Up Front feature. Jackie Holden finished in second, with Stacey Foster in third, Wayne Chapman, Jr. in fourth and J.J. Sorrow in fifth.
