Kraus dominates Sunday make-up race / May 06, 2019
Derek Kraus dominated the last segment of Sunday’s NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race at South Boston Speedway.

The NASCAR touring series ran the final 80 laps of the 100-lap feature Sunday after a thunderstorm delayed the action on Saturday night.

Kraus finished ninth in the first 100-lapper Saturday night, but his teammates made the right adjustments switching from night to day.

It paid off yesterday, as Kraus comfortably held the point in the closing stages of the race.

Chase Cabre took second, and Max McLaughlin finished third. McLaughlin posted two third place efforts during the two-day weekend.

Tanner Gray, who won the first 100-lapper Saturday night, rolled home fourth and Spencer Davis was fifth.

Colin Garrett took sixth in the first 100-lapper, but got bumped out of contention in a messy turn one crash. Garrett took over the ride of the no. 6 Reuben Garcia car yesterday.

Garrett finished seventh in the Garcia ride. Garcia had to leave to race in a NASCAR Mexico race. (Garrett officially was listed 14th after the early trouble.)

» HORNETS DIVISION: Stephen Layne won the Hornets race following the post-race disqualification of apparent winner Kenny Mills, Jr.

Mills bolted to the point and held on for a wire to wire win. That is, until the officials stepped in, hitting Mills with a DQ.

Kevin Currin took second, with Aaron Cash, Donald Clay and Josh Dawson rounding out the top five.

Earlier, several Hornet drivers got caught up in a messy crash near the back of the field. Jarrett Dawson was very unhappy with Josh Dawson. Meanwhile, Jesse Keesee also suffered extensive damage.
