The end of summer is still technically a few weeks away on the calendar, but for the AMS Legends program autumn has arrived and with it so has the Fall Five series of races.

The Fall Five series challenges Bandolero and Legends car drivers each month to put up their best effort, whether it be on the ¼-mile Thunder Ring or on a road course. Saturday’s action took place on the tricky flat short track.

In the Semi-Pro feature 2020 Thursday Thunder champ Blaze Crawford picked up where he left off by winning his feature. Crawford was the only summer series champion to take a checkered flag for the start of the Fall Five series; the next best effort by a Thursday Thunder title winner was in the Masters division, where Bill Plemons Jr. finished 2nd behind 2018 Thursday Thunder champion Robbie Woodall.

In the Pro division Griffin’s Cale Hall topped Christopher Clanton to take the victory. Donovan Strauss won from the pole in the Outlaws feature, as did Garrett Gumm in the Bandits race.

Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.’s Mason Maggio took the checkered flag in the Young Lions feature, while Julia Buchanan navigated around Katelyn Hicks to win in Rookie Bandoleros. In Chargers action, Hudson Bulger held off Amanda Woodall to get the win.
