Austin Horton attends Peach State Classic at Senoia Raceway
Austin Horton entered his Franklin Enterprises No. 16 Late Model into battle with the Castrol FloRacing Night in America miniseries on Friday night at Senoia Raceway (Senoia, Ga.) for the second annual Peach State Classic.
Drawing 52 Late Models for the two-day event, Horton’s seventh-place finish in his heat race relegated him into one of three consolation races for another shot at Friday’s $20,000-to-win prelim. Needing to place second or better, Austin went from eighth-to-fifth, ending his night.
On Saturday, Austin followed up a fifth-place showing in his heat race with a runner-up performance in his B-Main. Starting the $53,053-to-win Peach State Classic finale in 20th, Horton gained five spots in the 75-lap affair to finish 15th.
