Leads Last Lap To Garner Fayetteville Win
Ed Gibbons Memorial Race provides thrilling finish
between Franklin and Milliken
- Carolina Clash PR
Fayetteville, North Carolina (3/26/16) - As
forecasted throughout much of the week,
Saturday's weather was supposed to be perfect.
Unlike last week's event
the weather threat was near zero percent for
Saturday. However, when Saturday rolled around,
Mother Nature had written a completely different
story. Rain threatened the event for most of the
day, with a heavy shower accenting pre-race
activities. Actually, for some drivers, the rain was
an added benefit to help make create a racier track.
Yet, for the second week in a row, several cars fell
victim to mechanical problems, overheating engines,
tire failures, and this week - crashes.
Speedway Hosts Carolina Clash Super Late Models This
Saturday May 7, 2016
Gaffney, South Carolina
The Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series has been
idle since the Ed Gibbons Memorial Race on March 26,
2016, which was won by three-time champion Dennis
Franklin on a last lap pass of leader Willie
Milliken, who has taken the dirt late model world by
storm recently with wins in the FUEL Series and
World of Outlaws Late Model Dirt Series at
Fayetteville Motor Speedway in recent weeks.
While the Clash may have been idle in April, many of
the teams were rather busy filling their weekends
with action at various local tracks, supporting both
regional and national late model tours that visited
the Carolinas ovals.
Ross Bailes of Clover, SC already has two Carolina
Clash wins in 2016, but he pocketed a rather
impressive FUEL series victory at Cherokee on April
9, 2016, with a dramatic pass over race leader and
fellow Clash competitor Donald Bradsher. Each driver
will be looking at Cherokee to continue their
success at the 3/8 mile clay-oval located off I-85
in Gaffney, SC.
