Daytona1 Challenger Division

ANDERSON, S.C. - The Southeast Limited Late Model Series made its debut at the Anderson Motor Speedway in South Carolina on Friday night.  The Pro Division ran 100 laps and the Daytona1 Challengers ran a 50-lap feature event.

Luke Sorrow was the fastest qualifier in the Daytona1 Challenger division, while the No. 16 of Colby Howard picked up fast time in the Pro division, earning the Gale Force Suspension Pole Award and a $150 product certificate.

The Challenger 50 was up first.  Sorrow took off with the lead at the drop of the green with Howard settling into second.  They ran that way for the first 24 laps of the race until Blake Humphrey got crossed up in turn two and did a gentle spin with his No. 19.  He was able to restart at the tail of the field.

Sorrow made sure he was ready for the restart and pulled his good friend but on-track rival Howard by a full car length into turn one.  Andrew Cordell got underneath the No. 16 of Howard and raced him for a full lap before Howard dropped the hammer off the outside groove and powered down in front of Cordell to reclaim second.

Meanwhile, Howard threw everything including a small kitchen sink at leader Sorrow but just couldn't find his way around as the 14-year-old Sorrow took home the victory with his Vannory Construction sponsored No. 9, leading all 50 laps in the process.

100 Lap Pro Division Series feature 

Howard and Sorrow swapped starting spots for the 100-lap Pro Division feature, with Howard starting on the inside of the front row and Sorrow starting alongside him. Veteran racer Justin Carroll in the No. 57 and the No. 5 of New Englander Anthony Alfredo in the Falk Racing entry started in row two.

Hall took over third on lap 73 and appeared to have a podium finish locked up, but suddenly slowed with ten laps left and pulled into the pits and out of the race as Sorrow continued to work over leader Howard.

With just five laps left, the No. 9 of Sorrow buried his car deep into turn three, drew alongside Howard and sped away to a 1.157 sec
