April 28, 2018 - Austin Horton Records Two-Win Weekend in Super Late Model at TST
Friday night brought Austin Horton to Talladega Short Track (Eastaboga, Alabama) pulling double duty in both the Super and Crate Late Model divisions. In a stout field of 50 NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series entries, Horton logged the 16th fastest time in his qualifying group transferring him into the B-Main for another shot at the opening night feature. Sending the Top-3 into the show, Austin fell short with a 7th place outing.

In the Super Late Model ranks, Horton topped the 22-car field in the feature to pick up his third win of the season. Cory Hedgecock, Riley Hickman, Donald McIntosh, and Jason Hiett rounded out the Top-5 finishers in the 30-lap affair.

On Saturday evening for the $2,500 top prize in the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series, Horton failed to record a lap in time trials and scratched from his B-Main.

During the same night in a field of 40 Southern All Star Series entries, Horton secured his spot into the A-Main with the fastest time overall in qualifying. Rolling off on the pole, Austin held off Ronnie Johnson late in the 40-lap affair to capture his fourth win of the season and a $4,000 payday. Ronnie Johnson, Michael Page, Cory Hedgecock, and Riley Hickman completed the Top-5 finishers. (Mike Blevins photo)
