Frankie Beard scored his second straight FASTRAK Pro Late Model feature win on Saturday night at Georgia’s Toccoa Raceway.

Beard started on the pole for the feature, and charged ahead of second place starter Drew Benefield. From there, Beard went on to record his third victory of the season at the historic 5/16 mile clay oval.

Benefield had to settle for a second place finish, with Ricky Smith in third, Derrick Harvey in fourth and Jody Farmer in fifth.

Larry Waters, Mike Payne, Travis Terry and David McCoy rounded out the finishing order.

In other action, Mark Wilbanks took the win in the 602 Sportsman/Hobby feature, with Nick Sellers in second, Branden Loudermilk in third, Brandon Stroud in fourth and Ben Riggins in fifth.

Robbie Campbell recorded the victory in the Modified Street feature. Billy Buffington finished second, with Justin Sims third, Gavin Terry fourth and Louis Tetreault fifth.

Cameron Collett was the winner in the Toccoa Pro Trucks feature, with Terry Calhoun in second, Jimmy Motes in third, Coon Ayers in fourth and Bill Pulliam in fifth.

Hayden Collett took the victory in the Stock V8 feature, with Ricky Jones second and Stacy Watts third.

Jackie Holden scored the win in the Stock 4 feature. Harley Holden finished in second, followed by Kenny Phillips in third, Randy Boshears in fourth and Ryan Crawford in fifth.

Holden doubled up on the night with a victory in the Front Wheel Drive feature, with Daniel Reynolds in second and Kenneth Taylor in third.

The National Vintage Racing Association also visited the track on Saturday night, with Woody Callaway recording the victory. Mike Davidson finished second, with Mark Jones third, Eric Rogers fourth and Brock Wise fifth.

The Limited Late Model division was also in action on Saturday night, but due to a protest of the top three finishers, official results were not available at press time.

Toccoa Raceway returns to action on Saturday, July 15, as the speedway hosts the Lucas Oil Midget Series.
