Mt. Holly, North Carolina – Chris Ferguson overcame adversity on Friday night to find his way into victory lane on Saturday night in his Champion Spark Plugs #22 Longhorn Chassis/ Clements Racing Engine Super Late Model in the annual Rebel Yell at Screven Motor Speedway. The victory was worth $5,300.
Going into battle with the Schaeffer Oil Southern Nationals Series presented by Old Man’s Garage, Chris Ferguson visited Swainsboro Raceway (Swainsboro, Georgia) on Friday night. After posting the fastest time in a field of 31 cars, Ferguson started outside front row in the feature alongside Hunter Peacock for the feature. Suffering a flat left-front tire while leading the $5,300-to-win A-Main, Chris ultimately was credited with a 10th-place finish.
The following night brought 26 cars to Screven Motor Speedway (Sylvania, Georgia) for the $5,300-to-win Rebel Yell, where Ferguson looked for redemption from the previous night’s bad luck. Leading the final 18 laps of the feature event, Ferguson stormed to his fifth win of the season over Brent Dixon, Dennis Franklin, Casey Roberts, and Donald Bradsher.
“It was a fun race. Any time you get to run door-to-door like we did and then split each other, somebody on the top, somebody on the middle and bottom, it was just awesome,” Ferguson said. “In the mid-part of the race when we were in third and they were running around that bottom and I had harder tire on so I kinda couldn’t get down there, I didn’t know if I was going to win. It was just fun to race like that and come out and actually be the winner. It’s definitely redemption from last night, and that makes it even better.”
