ELM MOTT — Copperas Cove driver Chris Florio made it look fairly easy, all things considered.

Florio started on the pole at Heart O’ Texas Speedway on Friday night, immediately took the lead in a 24-car IMCA Southern SportMod field and went flag-to-flag for the victory, but his win wasn’t as simple as it looked.

By lap four, Florio was cruising with a straightaway lead until Mart racer D.L. Wilson broke down five circuits later, bunching up the field. Another caution flag waved immediately on the restart, but the veteran Cove driver hung on and finished his 20-lap run in Victory Lane.
