McDowell wins Southern National finale, Overton earns championship

The Schaeffer’s Southern Nationals Series returned to the speedway for the Ray Varner Ford 53-lap feature event. Dale McDowell drove to victory over Brandon Overton and Kyle Strickler. It was the 15th consecutive season that the series finale was held at the high banked speed plant.

Other winners included Jonathan Miracle in Sportsman, Hayston Collett in Four Cylinder and Classic Car, but that win is under protest. The Street Stock victory was earned by Donovan Long. Brandon Overton was crowned SSNS Champion.
