On the restart after the caution, Lucas again applied a lot of pressure to White, White got on the gas a little two hard coming out of turn four and looped the car around causing the second yellow flag of the event. Lucas got the lead on the side-by-side restart and never looked back in grabbing the checkers in his second all-time series win.
“It feels really good to get this win today at Flat Rock Speedway,” remarked an excited Lucas in victory lane. “I want to apologize to the 12 car for getting into him and spinning him out, I was just trying to make a clean pass. I must thank my parents and everyone who helped with this car. I also must thank all my sponsors for their support, we had several sponsor representatives here today at the track, it’s great to get a win for them!”
