The opening race to the 2021 Carolina Pro Late Model Series season at Hickory Motor Speedway saw Nick Loden put together a dominating performance to claim his second career victory on Saturday evening.

“I went winless for a while last year,” Loden said. “We only ended up getting one win, and I hope I can get a few more this year. This win felt really good, especially since it came at Hickory.”

Loden initially followed outside polesitter Caden Kvapil during the race’s opening stint, but a mechanical problem from Kvapil on the 26th lap gave the top spot to Loden, which he would not surrender for the rest of the evening.

Kyle DeSouza made an aggressive charge through the final laps to bring his car home in the second position, while Devin O’Connell obtained a third place finish after overcoming an early-race spin.
