The third race of Atlanta Motor Speedway's Winter Flurry season had the competitors return for the second time to the 1.3-mile road course.
The Bandolero Bandits was the first feature of the day with the top two finishers advancing to the Young Guns and Outlaws feature. On lap two, Austin Hill (Winston) took over the lead and led every lap for the rest of the race. Hill and Kyle Plott (Marietta) advanced to the next feature.
Zach Kittle (Watkinsville) was the pole sitter for the combined Young Guns/Outlaws feature, but Trey Maughan (Knoxville, Tenn.) took over the lead on lap one. On lap two, the leader made contact with Kittle bringing out the caution. On the restart, Kyle Lowry (Covington) was the new leader. On lap seven, Jordan Coker (Powder Springs) took over the lead, but a few turns later he spun in the grass, giving the lead to Sean Cassidy (Alpharetta). However on the last lap, Lowry passed for the lead and took the win.
