Blant Duke wrestled away the lead from pole sitter Richard Goode on the second lap of the May Day Special for the Late Model Sportsman division at Georgia’s Senoia Raceway on Saturday night and then kept everybody behind him the remainder of the way.

The veteran competitor notched his eighteenth career Senoia victory in the division while pocketing a $1000 pay day.

Duke battled with Goode for the first couple of laps before taking the lead. Duke moved out to a several car length lead while Goode settled in behind. William Blair charged to third after a hard fought race with Curtis Tuner. Keith Fields and Clyde Alexander also raced side by side for several laps fighting for fifth place.

On a lap nine restsart, Alexander snuck down low to steal away three positions and moved closer to Duke. But he could not reel in the leader. Duke crusied to the win with Alexander coming home second. William Blair finished third ahead of Turner in fourth and Goode in fifth.

In other action, Clint Smith led flag-to-flag to score the Super Late Model victory. Travis Pennington finished in second, with Zach Leonhardi in third, Tod Darda in fourth and Mason Massey in fifth.

Matt Dooley scored the victory in the Limited Late Model feature, with Corey Payton second, Dennis Hale third, Joey Armistead fourth and Jason Williams fifth.

Will Herrington was the winner in the Crate Late Model feature, with Jody Knowles, Kyle Cochran, Dylan Knowles and Marty Lunsford rounding out the top five.

Ted Willingham took advantage of a collision between H.B. Duke and Joe Hillman to take the lead on the 10th lap of the Hobby Stock feature, and went on to score his first career division victory. Hillman finished in second, with Duke in third, Josh Pitt in fourth and Cody Gibbons in fifth.

Derrick Matthews held off Dorough Bright to take the Bomber feature victory. Mark Newton was the Mini-Stock feature winner, while Shane Davis scored the win in the Hot Shot feature.

Racing will return to Senoia Raceway on Saturday, May 13, with a full line-up of racing in the Super Late Models, Limited Late Models, Crate Late Models, Late Models Sportsman, Hobby Stock, Bomber, Mini Stocks and Hot Shots.
