NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. – Brad May and Gio Scelzi headlined the winner’s list on the third night of the annual World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing at New Smyrna Speedway Sunday evening.

May dominated the 35-lap super late model feature, leading every lap en route to the victory. He qualified sixth, but the pre-race invert put him on the pole. He took the lead as the green flag waved and was never challenged during the caution-free feature.

The victory also moved May into the World Series championship lead after a pair of third-place finishes on the first two nights of action.

Ryan Moore was third in the super late model feature, followed by Sammy Smith, Jesse Love and Stephen Nasse.

Scelzi was victorious in a wild and crazy pro late model feature that saw only four cars officially finish the race.

A late-race restart saw Connor Mosack and Hayden Sprague battling for the win, but the two made contact in the final corner of the race. Mosack spun as the result of the contact and Sprague made it to the checkered flag first.

However, track officials black flagged Sprague for rough driving. That meant Scelzi, who crossed the finish line second, was the race winner. The triumph is the young sprint car ace’s first in a pro late model.

Lastly, Travis Eddy won the Florida Modified feature after starting the 35-lap race from the sixth position.
