Matt Craig Wins Throwback 276 Super Late Model Race, Chandler Smith Finishes Runner-Up

It was close but no cigar for NASCAR Camping World Truck Series regular Chandler Smith in Saturday night’s CARS Tour Throwback 276 Super Late Model event at Hickory Speedway as Smith would come home in the runner-up spot.

Matt Craig, who started from the pole and scored the win, took his first CARS Tour Super Late Model win of 2021.

In the early portion of the event, it was Carson Kvapil, son of former NASCAR Truck Series champion Travis Kvapil, who was the main competition for Craig. But as the race headed into the final stretch, it was Smith that came alive and attempted to hunt down Craig for the win.

But Craig had enough speed to hold off Smith in his No. 54 machine.

Here are the official results from the CARS Super Late Model Throwback 276 at Hickory:

  1. Matthew Craig
  2. Chandler Smith
