Joseph Joiner continued his late-season surge on Saturday, piloting the No. 10 Three Trade Consultants/ Law Offices of Cole & Davis/ Capital Race Cars Late Model to a runner-up finish.
Joiner’s most recent podium performance came in the Crate Racin’ USA Deep South 100 at Deep South Speedway in Loxley, Ala.
Joseph posted the fastest lap in his time trial group and led every lap of his heat race on Friday to earn a starting spot outside of the front row in Saturday’s $10,000-to-win finale.
Joiner grabbed the lead at the start of the 100-lap affair before a tangle with a lapped car nearly caused him to spin out on lap eight. Joseph dropped back to as far as fourth after the mishap in traffic before recovering to finish second behind Wil Herrington. Johnny Collins, Marcus Minga, and Chase Cooper rounded out the Top-5 finishers.
“We held the fort down as best we could, but came up a little short,” said Joiner, a frequent competitor at Deep South whose home in Milton, Fla., is less than an hour from track. “I knew once we lost the lead there wasn’t really any way to try to pass, so it was just try to be there at the end with some rubber on the tire,” said Joiner. “I was just trying to pace myself and make sure if there was gonna be a bunch of flats, I was the last one to have a flat at least.”
