LAKE CITY, Fla. – Mark Whitener raced to victory in Sunday’s DIRTcar-sanctioned super late model feature at North Florida Speedway.

Whitener started on the front row alongside the legendary Billy Moyer, with Moyer taking the lead early on. However, Moyer went into the spin cycle on the fifth circuit, gifting the race lead to Whitener.

Whitener would lead the remainder of the 25-lap distance, easily outpacing runner-up Allen Weisser to earn the $5,000 victory. Kyle Strickler was third ahead of Dan Stone and Moyer. Only 10 cars signed in for the race.

Nick Hoffman won the companion open-wheel modified main event.

The finish:

Mark Whitener, Allen Weisser, Kyle Strickler, Dan Stone, Billy Moyer, Jason Fitzgerald, Drake Troutman, Allen Cribbs, Mike Hammerle, Homer Leonard.
