BRASELTON — Saturday night was busy at Lanier Speedway. In addition to the regular series, the track was host to several touring series.

Kyle Plott driving car No. 4 won his first Pro Challenge race in a chase for the finish with Hunter Kent in car No. 7. Kason Plott, Kyle’s brother, finished first in the Bandolero Bandit series. Pro Challenge competition returns to Lanier in two weeks.

Also Saturday, Joey Love returned to the winner’s circle in a full field of drivers in the Open Wheel Modified series.

Starting near the rear of the Truck series race, Paul Antley worked his way through the pack to take the lead to win the that series.

Ten Late Model drivers competed for first place Saturday. Shawn Simpson took an early lead and held it throughout. Simpson, the 2007 Rookie of the Year, has seven victories this season. Zach Reardon increased his personal best and finished in second place between Shawn and Greg Simpson.
