NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. – Derek Griffith drove to a dominant victory in the 100-lap Orange Blossom 100 for super late models Saturday during the final night of the World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna Speedway.

Griffith took the lead for the final time on lap 77 from Jett Noland and pulled away in the closing laps, easily besting runner-up Bubba Pollard for his first checkered flag during the World Series.

Pollard settled for second in David Rogers No. 11, which was enough to give Pollard the overall super late model title during the World Series. Pollard earned three victories earlier in the week, which helped catapult him to a comfortable lead entering Saturday’s finale.

Noland finished the Orange Blossom 100 third after leading the most laps. Tate Fogleman and reigning USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Series champion Logan Seavey completed the top-five.

George Gorham won the sportsman feature, Wayne Parker won the Florida Modified main, Cody Haskins earned another pro truck triumph and Michael Trocki claimed the super stock checkers.

The finish:

Derek Griffith, Bubba Pollard, Jett Noland, Tate Fogelman, Logan Seavey, Travis Brayden, Carson Kvapil, Jared Irvan, Ryan Moore, Derek Kraus, Colin Garrett, Alex Labbe, Sam Mayer, Gabe Sommers, Nicholas Naugle, Brad May, Brad Kossaw, Toby Grynewicz, Clay Greenfield, Anthony Sergi, Spencer Davis, Christian Rose
