Southern Nationals: Dixon Gets Biggest Career Win at Screven Mini-Series Stop 

Series report

SYLVANIA, Ga. - July 16. Brent Dixon laid claim to his first career Schaeffer Oil Southern Nationals Series triumph tonight in the annual 'Rebel Yell' at the Screven Motor Speedway.

After timing in fastest of the 27 entrants during the qualifying session, Dixon held the talented field behind him for all 53 circuits. It wasn't easy, however, as Casey Roberts and Brandon Overton both took their shots at race leader

Reigning series champion Jonathan Davenport had another rough evening, as he spun out of the top five on the first lap of the race and was later caught up in a multi-car pile-up on the front stretch on lap 16.

Consolation race winner John Henderson hurt a motor en route to his prelim victory and was not able to compete in the 'Rebel Yell' feature event. Instead, past race winner Henry Carter was added to the starting lineup in his place.

 The next race for the series will be Sunday, July 17 at the famed Rome Speedway in Rome, Georgia.
