Another young Dawsonville race car driver had a big finish over the Memorial Day weekend.

Spencer Davis won his first race in the NASCAR K&N East Pro Series by a .005 second margin in the ComServe Wireless 150 at the Dominion Raceway in Virginia.

The finish proved to be the closest in the series history and the 18-year-old NASCAR Next driver had to wait and see if he won.

Race officials spent almost two minutes going over the footage to determine a winner.

"I've had some close finishes and this one was by far the closest, honestly, it was so close that I thought I lost there for a second," Davis said to media after the race.

Davis started the race from third after qualifying and ran most of it in the top three.

With 12 laps left in the race, a caution came out and the race leader Kyle Benjamin had problems on the restart. Davis was able to take the lead.

Justin Haley was chasing Davis on the final laps and the two battled it out, bumping through the final turns.

This victory puts Davis in third for the points standings in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series east. He is only 23 points out of the first place position.

Davis was announced as a member of the 2016-17 NASCAR Next Class on May 17. He won the Sunoco Rookie of the Year Award last season in the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour.

He also competes in Pro Late Model and Super Late Model races.

Davis moved to the NASCAR K&N Pro Series where he now has one first place finish, two second place finishes and one fourth over six races this year.

The next scheduled NASCAR K&N race is the Stafford 150 on June 17 at the Stafford Motor Speedway in Connecticut.
