LANCASTER, S.C. – Steve Shaver, Steve Francis and Jonathan Davenport each won heat races on Friday to guarantee themselves strong starting positions in Saturday’s $30,000-to-win Carolina Crown dirt-late-model race at Lancaster Speedway.
The most exciting finish came in the second heat. Shaver squeezed his way under leader Chris Madden exiting turn four, beating him to the finish line by inches at the four-tenths-mile dirt oval.
A Fast Dash on Saturday will set first three rows for the 60-lap feature. The remainder of the Carolina Crown field will be set Saturday evening through B Mains.
