It was a picture-perfect night for Corey Deuser and his No. 14 Pro Late Model team at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway on Saturday night. When the 100-lap event concluded, they finally stood in NFS’s Victory Lane for photos with their guitar trophy.

After starting on the pole, with the No. 20 of Chase Johnson to his outside, Deuser would lose the early jump and settled for second place. He would remain there for the first 50-lap, caution-free segment chasing Johnson.

Once the teams exited pit road after the halfway break to make adjustments, Deuser lined up to the outside of Johnson. This time, the fate of the race changed as he mashed the gas to take the lead and never looked back. During the latter segments, Dueser was dominating to the point he had a two-second lead over second place.

Making his first and elusive victory at NFS even better for the Georgetown, IN native was it took place on his dad’s birthday. And, the driver revealed something interesting about their halfway pit strategy during his Victory Lane speech.

“I felt like the first 50 laps our pace was okay and Chase was really fast,” Deuser said. “When we had the halfway caution, I just felt like I was good and we just kept what he had and didn’t make any adjustments. It’s just me and dad making the calls on the car and felt like we could have made it worse before making it better.

“Today is my dad’s birthday and I’m so glad to get him this win. I feel like we always race on his birthday and we’re never able to get it for him. I’m finally glad to win at Nashville. This is one badass track to get a victory.”

While the No. 20 of Johnson led the first half of the race with Deuser following on lap 45; Dawson Sutton, George Phillips and Jonathon Knee were nose-to-tail behind them battling for top-five positions.

Just like the first segment, the second one also went caution-free. Despite the long-green flag runs, drivers like Phillips and the No. 15 of Trey Craig were slugging it out with Dawson for positions in the final 20 laps.

With 20 to go, Sutton passed early-race leader Johnson for second place making the final top-five finishers Deuser, Sutton, Craig, Johnson and the No. 98 of Bennie Hamlett.
