With mother nature staking her claim to Friday nights event, it was on to Saturday for the final round of the weekend at All-Tech Raceway in Lake City, Florida for the Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model Series. Following a frustrating start to the 2022 season, four-time Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series National Champion, Jimmy Owens rebounded on Saturday Night. The 50-year-old Tennessee native earned a hard fought $15,000 victory in the General Tire Winter Nationals Saturday night event at All-Tech Raceway. The 50-lap event started off with Tyler Erb grabbing the early lead until Devin Moran took over the point on lap eight. However, the race could not build any momentum, as there were five cautions in the first 11 laps of the race. The race would go green the rest of the way, with Owens making his move around Tim McCreadie for the lead on lap 43, to pull away for a 2.841 second advantage at the finish. McCreadie, the reigning series champion, finished second followed by Jonathan Davenport, Moran, and Brandon Sheppard.
Owens becomes the fifth different winner in the first seven races of the 2022 season, picking up his 78th career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory in the process.
The series now moves on to East Bay Raceway Park for the 46th Annual Wrisco Winter Nationals. A Practice day is on the slate for Sunday, with event #1 kicking off on Monday, the first of 7 consecutive nights at the Tampa bullring.
