Benjamin Scores First NASCAR Victory In K&N Pro Series East PittLite 125
The victory was Benjamin's first in a NASCAR-sanctioned race.
"It's really cool to get your first NASCAR win at Bristol Motor Speedway," the Easley, S.C. native said. "It's one of the tracks you really dream about winning at as a kid. To pull it off is awesome."
Byron finished .910 of a second behind Benjamin, who is the series' third different winner in three races this season.
Benjamin had raced at Bristol once before Saturday, and won that race as well.
"In a Bandolero around the bottom, not up on the high banks," he said.
Scott Heckert finished third in Saturday's 125-lap race and was followed by Kaz Grala and Brandon Jones. Defending race winner Eddie MacDonald finished sixth. Austin Hill entered the race as the series points leader and finished seventh. Jesse Little, who set a series track record Thursday's qualifying, finished 25th after completing 63 laps.
