KINGSTON, Ga. (05/04/21) – Tyler Millwood Racing raced to his first victory of the 2021 season on Saturday night. The triumph for Millwood came at Dixie Speedway in the facility’s 52nd anniversary opener aboard his Millwood Plumbing No. 31 XR1 Rocket Chassis/ Durham Racing Engine Super Late Model.

“It wasn’t the biggest paying win, but it was still a much-needed win to get our season kicked into high gear,” Millwood said. “We’ve made some changes with our program to push it to the next level, and hopefully this is a sign of things to come.”

Saturday night found Tyler Millwood in action at Dixie Speedway (Woodstock, Ga.), where he took his Millwood Plumbing No. 31 Super Late Model into battle. Topping the 16-car field in time trials, Millwood locked into the pole position for the A-Main.

Grabbing the lead at the drop of the green flag, Tyler cruised his first win of the season, which came over Shawn Chastain, Justin Shipley, Jason Croft, and Wayne Echols. He earned $2,000 for his winning performance.
