15 year old Walker Windham collects largest prize in Sport Compact Racing at Winter Freeze

Sylvania, Georgia - Lake City, Florida's Walker Windham only led the final 2 laps of Screven Motor Speedway's SCDRA Battle Royale during Winter Freeze X but it was all he needed to collect the richest prize in Sport Compact Racing. The young man hung around the top 5 for the entire 100 lap distance and put himself in the right spot when race-long leader Eddie McGrew broke an axle with just 2 laps remaining. Windham survived 2 more restarts after assuming the point to collect the $15,000 winner's check. The event drew a record 110 entries in its 11th year at Redd Griffin's Screven Motor Speedway.

Windham's older brother set the pace in time trials. John Windham picked up the Jason Waters Tuning $200 Fast Time Award with a fastest lap of 18.389 seconds around the 3/8ths of a mile red clay track. McGrew, Shannon Barnhill, Walker Windham and Ivan Valverde rounded out the top 5 fastest cars in time trials. Chris Mincey, 2016 SCDRA champion Eric Boozel, defending event winner Joey Kelly, 2017 SCDRA champion Andrew Smith and Chris Harvell completed the top 10 qualifiers. The fastest to tenth speeds were only one half of a second apart.
