Taylor Jorgensen of Stockbridge posted the best finish in the combined Semi-Pro and Young Lions feature and now leads the Semi-Pro Division slipping ahead of Aaron Bailey of Burlington, NC into the top spot with one race remaining.
Woodrow Mullis of Hoboken remains perfect in the Winter Flurry series with his seventh consecutive win in the Young Lions Division. Mullis now leads Zach Leonhardi of Cartersville by 21 points. Leonhardi finished second while Dylan Murry of Cumming earned third.
