Devin Dixon Impresses in Super Late Model Debut

Ocala, Florida (03/20/17) – After experiencing more than their fair share of bad luck to start the 2017 season, Devin Dixon and Big Frog Motorsports enjoyed a great weekend with their #58 Dave’s Towing/Rocket XR1 Late Model.

“We came away with a pair of Top-5 finishes, with one of them coming in my first-ever Super Late Model start on Friday night, so yeah, we were really pleased with the results from the weekend,” noted Dixon. “We’ve just had so many random part’s failures and situations of bad luck to start the year, that it felt really good to finally get to finish two races and show just how strong our team is. Hopefully this shows our luck is finally pointed back in the right direction.”

The Big Frog Motorsports team entered the Southern All Stars Series sanctioned program on Friday night at Southern Raceway (Milton, Florida) with Devin Dixon piloting the team’s XR1 Rocket Chassis #58 Super Late Model. With 26 cars registered for the opening night of the Bash at the Beach, Dixon locked his spot into the $4,000-to-win A-Main with a 3rd-place finish in his heat. Starting in 5th for the feature, Devin jumped up one position scoring a 4th-place finish behind Casey Roberts, Ryan Crane, and Joseph Joiner with Bo Shirley coming in 5th.

The strong run against a talented field of open-engine competitors came despite the team being underpowered with a CT 525 engine.

On Saturday the team traveled north to 411 Motor Speedway (Seymour, Tennessee) for the opening night of the Chevrolet Performance Super Late Model Series 2017 campaign. Laying down the fifth-fastest time in a field of 27 cars, Dixon earned the 5th-starting position for the feature. With $3,000 on the line, Devin worked his way into a podium position in the 50-lapper, notching a 2nd-place finish behind Cory Hedge(not a nice word)(not a nice word)(not a nice word)(not a nice word) with Brandon Williams, Ross Martin, and Zach Pilcher completing the Top-5 finishers.

This Saturday, March 25 the team will stay local as they make the short trip to Bubba Raceway Park (Ocala, Florida) to compete in the annual Mike Peter’s Open, which will post a $3,000 check for the winner. For more information on the event, please visit .
