KINGSPORT — Chase Dixon made a triumphant return to Kingsport Speedway before the lights went out, ending Friday night’s action.
Dixon, driving the No. 07 Toyota, passed track points leader Nik Williams for the top spot on lap 10 and led the rest of the 35-lap NASCAR Weekly Series Late Model Stock feature at the Food City Night at Kingsport Speedway.
It was the second win of the season for the 18-year-old Abingdon, Virginia, driver. He held off Dillon Hodge, another 18-year-old who started on the pole, for the win.
With veteran NASCAR crew chief Chris Carrier overseeing the setup, Dixon had the perfect handling car for the 3/8-mile concrete oval.
“The car was on a rail tonight. I have to thank the good Lord above, my family and everybody behind this program,” Dixon said. “To show up here twice this season and win two times, it’s definitely a blessing. It’s fun to come back home, especially when you know you have a good car and you can win right out of the gate.”
