A sweet $10,000 World of Outlaw Late Model series victory came to Newport, Tn. racer Jimmy Owens a day before Valentine's Day as the driver known as the "Newport Nightmare" won his career first DirtCar Nationals at Volusia County Speedway Thursday night.

The race (#4 of 6) this week during Speedweeks of Daytona leading to Sunday's "Great American Race" at the Superspeedway drew 51 dirt Super Late Models, to the half mile dirt track oval, with West Virginia's Josh Richards finishing third just ahead of Blairsville, Ga.'s Jonathan Davenport and Winfield Tn.'s Mike Marlar respectively.
