RACE RECAP: SWEETWATER, TN—The Southern All Star Dirt Racing Series presented by MaxFab made the annual stop at the I-75 Raceway Saturday night and a strong field of 30 super late models entered for the 2nd Annual Dirt Slinger Classic and like in 2018 a new driver picked up his first career Southern All Star win as David Crabtree of Maryville, TN., took home the $4,000 payday.

Crabtree started on the pole and then had to battle with Matt Henderson on restarts and Henderson caught up to Crabtree in lapped traffic but Crabtree worked his way around the lapped cars and then took command late in the race as he pulled ahead of Henderson for the win.

Matt Henderson came home in the second spot with Trevor Sise finishing third but due to an unapproved tire he was disqualified, moving Riley Hickman to the third spot, Kyle Courtney fourth and David Webb fifth.

Finishing in the sixth spot was Ronnie Johnson who started 16th, seventh to 2018 race winner Coy Hedgecock, eighth to Jordan Rodabaugh, ninth to Patrick Duggan and tenth to Kurt English.
