Cody Hall earned his first Pro Late Model win at Crisp Motorsports Park, while also finishing second in the Legends feature to his brother Cale.
Cody finished behind his brother for a 1-2 family finish in the Legends feature at the Cordele, Georgia facility before scoring his first career win in a Pro Late Model. Hall was thrilled with the stellar night at Watermelon Capital Speedway.
“It feels good,” Hall told Speed51. “It feels even better after my brother won about 45 minutes before that. My dad sure liked it.”
Hall had to work hard for his strong finishes in both races. During the Legends feature, Hall went wide on the backstretch, where there is no outside retaining wall at Crisp Motorsports Park. Hall was able to rejoin the track and work his way back up to second place.
“At the beginning, I got run off the backstretch, but I got back on and got my way back up to second, so that was pretty exciting,” said Hall. “We tried to catch my brother, but we just didn’t have the speed.”
In the Pro Late Model feature, Hall rebounded from an eighth-place effort in qualifying to score the victory in the Chris Dilbeck Racing entry.
“I just didn’t have good short-run speed, so our qualifying wasn’t that good. It was a little free off the corner. We had a better long-run speed car.”
Hall will continue to race at Crisp Motorsports Park throughout the 2021 season, while also venturing to other tracks such as Montgomery Motor Speedway. With a few weeks until Montgomery’s next race, Hall has some time to look for another place to race.
“I think we have two months off, so we’re going to travel to Montgomery or somewhere else. We plan on running all the Cordele races. I want to thank Byron Powersports and Hall’s Hydro Vac for make it possible for me to go racing.”
