While Alex McCollum was unable to add a fourth win in the Rowdy Energy Super Select Series powered by Speed51 on Saturday night, he did extend his points lead with a second-place finish at virtual Five Flags Speedway.
The New Jersey native now holds a 16-point advantage over Parker Retzlaff, who finished 17th in Saturday’s race and missed out on the top 10 for the first time this season.
With the win in an exciting Deep South Cranes 100, Max Cookson moved from sixth to fourth in the points standings. He sits just one point behind eRattler 250 winner Devon Morgan, who is 22 points behind McCollum.
Morgan finished second in Saturday’s race ahead of McCollum. However, McCollum earned three bonus points in the event as a result of setting fast time in qualifying, winning a heat race and leading during the feature race. Thus, McCollum scored one more point than Morgan in the race, who accrued a bonus point for leading a lap.
Riley Stenjem rounds out the top five, with Kaden Honeycutt falling from third to sixth despite finishing ninth in Saturday’s race at Five Flags.
Rounding out the top 10 in the points standings are Ryan Doucette, Treyten Lapcevich, Rafe Slate and Travis Braden. Lapcevich surpassed Slate for seventh in the standings with a fifth-place finish at Five Flags Speedway.
The Rowdy Energy Super Select Series Champion will receive a one-of-a-kind prize for their efforts. Along with a points fund sponsored by Rowdy Energy and PFC Brakes, the Rowdy Energy Super Select Series champion will receive an invitation to the Speed51 Super Late Model All-Star Race.
After competing at Five Flags Speedway last Saturday, the Rowdy Energy Super Select Series powered by Speed51 will visit the home of another Super Late Model crown jewel this weekend. The next stop for the series is Oxford Plains Speedway, home of the Oxford 250 each summer.
