Jackson Boone held on to win a dramatic Allen Turner Pro Late Model Series showdown at Five Flags Speedway Friday night.

Boone led the majority of the 100-lap event, but withstood plenty of pressure from the likes of Carson Brown and Dylan Fetcho in the closing laps on a flurry of late restarts.

“Man, I wasn’t out of breath until those last three laps,” said Boone in victory lane. “I was driving so hard, man. That was the longest freaking 11 laps of my life.”

The win was the fourth trip to victory lane this season for Boone, with three prior wins this year in Pro Late Model competition at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway. Boone also nearly won the ASA Southern Super Series event at Nashville, but an issue with the radiator hose dashed his shot at the win in that race.

That disappointment has been a great motivator for Boone and the Fat Head Racing team moving through the rest of the summer.

“I can’t tell you how awesome it is,” said Boone. “I still have nightmares about that Super race in Nashville, man. We’re going to get one. It’s a matter of time. It’s been a labor of love, and it’s been hard on us. It’s been hard on us mentally more than it has physically, but these guys are resilient, these guys are stubborn. They come back to the track every weekend with the same attitude, so I’m proud of them.”

Boone briefly lost the lead on a lap 66 restart to Fetcho, but reclaimed the lead five laps later. That restart came after a multi-car incident which ended the night for Rackley WAR teammates Dawson Sutton and Gavan Boschele as well as Christopher Tullis.

Hunter Robbins’ night also ended against the outside wall in turn one, as he was involved in an incident after contact with Carson Brown as they battled for a podium spot.

Brown ultimately finished second, overtaking Fetcho in the final 10 laps for the runner-up spot.

“I just can’t thank Anthony Campi Racing and all of the team enough for this opportunity,” said Brown. “It was a lot of fun. We’ll be at Mobile tomorrow, and I don’t know what’s after that.”

Fetcho completed the podium after his brief flirtations with the lead. He felt he had enough long-run speed to contend with Boone, but the late cautions did not work in his favor.

“The whole race was not much saving going on, I think,” said Fetcho. “Huge thanks to my whole team behind me.

“I really wish it had stayed green. On the longer runs behind Jackson, I felt like I could get to him. We’ll never really know.”

Brent Crews, coming off an ARCA Menards Series win at Springfield, Illinois, finished fourth Friday night, with John Bolen rounding out the top five.

Many of the Pro Late Model teams that raced at Pensacola on Friday night will head to Mobile International Speedway Saturday, August 26. There will be a $2,000 bonus awarded to the driver with the best average finish between the two Pro Late Model races on the Gulf Coast this weekend, and one lucky fan will win $1,000 by winning a drawing among fans who attend both events.
