GAFFNEY, S.C. - Sept. 5. Chris Ferguson used patience to secure the biggest Late Model victory of his career in the Southern All Stars East "Hall of Fame" race on Sunday at Cherokee Speedway.

The young Mount Holly, N.C. driver raced in the top three behind Casey Roberts and Johnny Pursley for most of the 60-lap Southern All Stars East sanctioned event, but was forced to take evasive maneuvers when leader

Roberts suddenly suffered a flat tire. Ferguson and Pursley split Roberts' #101 car and Ferguson came out with the lead.  

Ferguson won $10,000 for the 60-lap feature win, the biggest payday of his career. Dennis Franklin, of Gaffney, finished second ahead of Will Vaught of Crane, Missouri. Roberts, of Toccoa, Ga., made his tire change and returned to the end of the lead lap before returning to finish fourth ahead of South Carolina teenager Zack Mitchell.
