Franklin Scores 42nd Carolina Clash Victory At Lancaster

Lancaster, South Carolina (8/4/18) - "Man I love this place! It's fast and always a great place to race."

These were the words of an ecstatic Dennis Franklin as he hopped down from the roof of his Schwartz Chassis, Clements powered #2 as he parked it in Burns Ford-Mercury Victory Lane at the Lancaster Motor Speedway for the 42nd time in Carolina Clash history, his sixth Clash feature win at the 1/2 mile paper clip in Lancaster, SC.

Michael Brown qualified on the pole and picked up the $100 Parks Heating & Cooling Parks Way Fast Time Award with a time of 19.284 seconds. Zack Mitchell qualified second and started alongside Brown on the front row, as the feature lineup was set from time trials.

The opening lap of the event was a thriller with Brown missing his mark entering turn three as Ben Watkins powered around exiting turn four, with Zack Mitchell in pursuit. 2015 Clash champion Ben Watkins led the first nine laps of the feature before Zack Mitchell, the 2017 Clash champion, began putting the heat to the #16. After a near side-by-side pass under the flag stand to complete lap 11, Mitchell and Watkins collided in turn one, with both cars sliding to a stop bringing out a caution. Watkins took his car pit side for repairs, while Mitchell resigned to the pits for the rest of the event.

Pole sitter Michael Brown inherited the race lead on lap 12 and continued to pace the field over the next 14 laps. Ross Bailes debuted in the GR Smith #22 car and was running in the top five until a right rear tire was cut forcing him to the pits for a new Hoosier. Bailes would return to the event and encounter a nasty hit with the turn three wall, sending the #22 XR1 Rocket airborne before stopping on the track at halfway.

Series newcomer Brian Carswell of Connelly Springs, NC, found early success in Carolina Clash action with a fourth-place qualifying spot. Nicknamed "Meathead," Carswell raced among series regulars Anthony Sanders and Adam Yarbrough and returning competitor Jonathan Edwards, along with Dennis Franklin, who had quietly marched his way into third from his sixth-place starting spot. By way of a restart, Franklin powered around Jonathan Edwards just after halfway and began stalking race leader Michael Brown over the next four laps. On lap 27, Franklin found a hot line around the rim of Lancaster Speedway exiting turn four and was hooked to the bumper of Brown entering turn one. Brown faded high in the corners and Franklin launched off the bottom of turn two to assume the race lead.

Meanwhile, Ben Watkins began marching back to the front from his repairs and was running fifth just after halfway. The final three laps of racing were among the most exciting of the night, with Franklin pulling away to a three-second lead, while the action for second and third was intense. Watkins, Carswell, A. Sanders, and Edwards were criss-crossing one another as the white flag was shown. Watkins powered to the bottom of Carswell and Sanders, with the three making contact off turn one. Somehow they were able to save their sliding cars through turn two, with Watkins taking over second from Carswell.

Dennis Franklin picked up the feature win by 4.527 seconds over Ben Watkins, Brian Carswell, Anthony Sanders and Jonathan Edwards. Franklin was also the www.speed51.com "Hard Charger of the Race" and collected the $51 bonus for his efforts improving five spots from his 6th place starting spot.

Chris Ferguson Scores $5000 Win At Cherokee

Gaffney, South Carolina (5/27/18) - Chris Ferguson notched his 17th all-time Carolina Clash victory and 5th at Cherokee Speedway in the Mike Butler Memorial Race, which paid tribute to the long-time Cherokee Speedway photographer. Benji Hicks of Mt. Airy, North Carolina, fresh off a win at 311 Speedway on Friday night, captured the $100 Parks Heating & Cooling of Indian Trail, NC "Parks Way Fast Time" at 15.014 seconds, just 0.011 seconds quicker than Ferguson, who qualified second.

At the onset, Ferguson and Hicks battled hard in turns one and two at Cherokee, which saw two-distinctive racing lanes emerge during the event, as heavy lapped traffic gave much of the top ten many anxious moments throughout the 40 lap tribute.

Hicks was able to lead to the lap one completion, but a spin among cars that began to domino off one another near the rear of the field halted the pace. Hicks continued to lead until a lap 14 pass from Ferguson during the race-high 30 lap green flag run until a lap 31 caution. The action was intense during that run as lead pack cars battled with lapped cars in a turf war.

Johnny Pursley and Ross Bailes battled with Brett Hamm, Joey Coulter and Billy Hicks during this run as they often ran side-by-side on Cherokee’s dual lanes in the turns. The caution waved for Brett Hamm who fell off the pace, shedding debris along the backstretch on lap 31.

Following the single-file restart, Ferguson was able to separate himself from Coulter who had cleared Pursley and Bailes and Hicks for second. Ferguson led the final nine laps capturing the flag and the beautiful trophy furnished by the track in memory of Mike Butler.

Jimmy McNamara of Denver, North Carolina raced from his 15th starting spot to finish 11th, earning the Speed.51.com Hard Charger of the Race and the $51 bonus.

Adam Yarbrough had a rough night as he debuted a new power plant in his #57 entry. The two-time Speed51.com Hard Charger for 2018 pitted after 17 laps, earning the Safety-Kleen Orange Scrubbers Hard Luck Award.

David Todd finish 19th in the feature earning the Performance Plus "Final in Feature" award for a case of Performance Plus Motor Oil.

Tyler Millwood Scores "Jack Starrette Memorial" Victory At Modoc

Modoc, South Carolina (4/28/18) - 2017 Ultimate Super Late Model Series Champion Tyler Millwood from Kingston, Georgia held off a late race charge from Ross Bailes to capture the 8th Annual "Jack Starrette Memorial" Race at the Modoc Raceway in McCormick County community along the Savannah Lakes Region of South Carolina. Millwood had never experienced victory but took the checkered after surviving a lap 45 tangle after racing with Ross Bailes in lapped traffic. Millwood lost a portion of his nosepiece which found its way onto the backstretch forcing a caution, negating the pass from Ross Bailes who led entering the third turn. However, the caution put Millwood back in front, after a near disaster where he crashed into spinning cars of Jeff Smith and David Yandle after the caution had been waved. Brett Hamm was among the early hard chargers who while challenging for the lead made hard contact with a barrier tire along the inside of the racing surface, which caused major damage to the front of the #18, ending his bid for his second Modoc win.

Cla Knight was the Parks Heating and Cooling Fastest Qualifier and was among the top five for most of the event.

Michael Brown had problems in qualifying and started on the final row for the feature. He would race his way into the 10th position earning the Speed51.com Hard Charger of the Race and the $51 bonus for his efforts. Brown continues to lead the Carolina Clash point standings now over Ross Bailes, who with a strong second place finish sits in second.

CarQuest of Manning, South Carolina Rookie of the Year driver Adam Yarbrough resorted to a secondary car for the event after experiencing engine trouble following the Carolina Speedway event last Friday. He brought a CT525 powered car and scrapped out a 16th place finish.

Brent Dixon and Anthony Sanders were winners of the two heat races that determined the starting lineup for the 24 car field which paid tribute to Jack Starrette, a Carolina Clash Hall of Fame and major financial supporter of many teams who passed away in 2011.

The event was the first of two co-sanctioned events with the Ultimate Super Late Model Series. The next event will be the second event of the dual-series partnership on May 18, 2018 at the Carolina Speedway in Gastonia, North Carolina.

The Carolina Clash Portion Of The "Boom City Fall Classic" At Fayetteville Motor Speedway For September 30th Has Been Postponed; Carolina Speedway Up Next

The officials of the Fayetteville Motor Speedway and the Carolina Clash have mutually decided that is in the best interest of the track and its fans to postpone the Carolina Clash portion of the Boom City Fall Classic race scheduled for September 30, 2017.

"We have exhausted many hours today trying to find a feasible answer to this situation. Unfortunately, nothing we came up with would have led to a successful event for Clash at Fayetteville this weekend. There are many race teams who support Clash events at Fayetteville that are currently out of commission due to engine problems or other mechanical issues," said Mark Huey of Carolina Clash. "Also, several local Fayetteville area drivers may have already committed or planned to attend other events in the region. With that being said, we see this as a double-edged sword - especially for those who could have attended We hate to see that they will not get a chance to run this weekend at Fayetteville as planned. However, it is not fair to expect fans of the track to be satisfied with a low car count, given the number of teams we know are not going to attend."

At this time, the possible dates are becoming few and far between as to when it could be rescheduled, but track promoter Jim Long, Jr. will work each day to try to find a way to make the race up – if it can be made up. If not, then the Clash will look forward to more work with Fayetteville in 2018.

"Fayetteville Motor Speedway is like the 'home-field' of Carolina Clash. We have held 68 events there out of the 322 all time since 2000. Fayetteville is where Clash was born and I hope to see it continue to thrive there in the future. We have built a tremendous legacy with Carolina Clash at Fayetteville over the past 18 years and we will continue to make that our priority to ensure this legacy remains," said Clash founder and co-owner Larry Lee.

"October and November are packed with events that are already booked both in our immediate area and around the Southeast. It is going to be hard to achieve a suitable makeup date that best fits Fayetteville and Clash, but I will try to look at every possible alternative." Long said in a statement Wednesday night.

Regional series racing continues to face the difficult task of getting decent 24+ car counts at events, especially given the number of options that have become available with new series starting up in the past two seasons. That only complicates the ability to reschedule cancelled events even more.

"Simply put - late model racing has become a very diluted sport regionally. Late model teams have more choices and options now than ever before, which spreads the product even thinner."

The remainder of the Fayetteville Motor Speedway event will go on as originally planned, but will not include the Carolina Clash.

The next race for Carolina Clash will be a $5000 to win/$500 to start "King of the Carolinas" 40 lap feature at the Carolina Speedway in Gastonia, NC on Saturday, October 14, 2017. For more information, visit www.carolinaspeedway.net

Lancaster Speedway September 2nd Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series Event Canceled

 

The Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series event scheduled for Saturday September 2nd at Lancaster Speedway has been canceled.  Lancaster Speedway owner Doug McManus and Carolina Clash Series official Mark Huey have been monitoring the situation regarding the weather since Sunday night. As of Friday afternoon, the area is under a Tornado Watch until 10:00 PM and several rounds of severe weather are possible into the late evening hours.

This will create a logistical problem with the track officials as they would not be able to prepare the race track for the event tomorrow in order for it to be as successful as possible. Lancaster Speedway is a very large facility and it takes a lot of time to prepare the track, which includes work on Thursday and Friday nights. That work just cannot be done in one morning on race day.

The area has been pounded for the second day in a row with heavy rains and both parties feel that it is in the best interest of the track to postpone the event. There are many other factors that were taken into consideration, including a recent spike in gas prices due to impacts from Hurricane Harvey along the Gulf Coast.

If any foreseeable date opens up that could be used for a reschedule or makeup date, it will be utilized.

Ultimate VS. Carolina Clash At Carolina Speedway And Lavonia Speedway

For the first time ever, the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series South East Region will take on the Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series in a two-race Shootout with a pair of 40-lap $4,000-to-win, $400-to-start races this Friday night at Carolina Speedway in Gastonia, NC and on Saturday night at Lavonia Speedway in Lavonia, GA.

Officials from both series agree the co-sanctioned events show something that has been missing for a long time in dirt late model racing, and that is a spirit of co-operation and working together for the betterment of the sport.

“It seems that the Carolina Clash and the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series have long been thought of as rivals in the region,” ULTIMATE Founder and CEO Stan Lester said. “Today’s announcement ushers in a new era of co-operation between the two groups.”

Carolina Clash Co-Owner Bruce Arrants shared Lester’s enthusiasm of the two series getting together for this special weekend of super late model racing.

“It’s just the right thing to do,” Arrants said. “We all need to work together rather than against each other to continue to be successful in this region. I was thrilled when ULTIMATE Series Director Kelley Carlton and I sat down and talked about working together. I think this is a great thing for racing, as well as for our racers, promoters and fans.”

The top ten point drivers for the ULTIMATE SE Region are Jonathan Davenport, Jason Welshan, Autolite/Fram/DirtOnDirt.com Rookie of the Year point leader Tyler Millwood, three-time champion Casey Roberts, defending and two-time champion Dennis Franklin, three-time 2017 winner Brandon Overton, 2011 Champion Chris Ferguson, Brett Hamm, Michael Page, and G.R. Smith.

The Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series top ten point drivers are Zack Mitchell, Johnny Pursley, Michael Brown, G.R. Smith, Anthony Sanders, Jeff Smith, Scott Shirey, David Yandle, Dennis Franklin and Ben Watkins.

Drivers will earn points in both series at both events. Each race will utilize a Hoosier 1350 and 1600, or American Racer 48 and 56. Both series use a similar format for setting the field which will also be used at these two races. The only difference will be the starting field of 24 will allow for two point provisional starters for each series.

Otherwise, event rules will be governed by the respective lead series. The Carolina Speedway race on Friday night will be officiated by Carolina Clash Officials, and the Saturday night Lavonia Speedway race will be officiated by ULTIMATE SE Officials

Zack Mitchell Leads Flag-To-Flag At Fayetteville Motor Speedway In The 9th Annual Ed Gibbons Memorial

Fayetteville, North Carolina (3/25/17) - Zack Mitchell entered the Ed Gibbons Memorial Event hot off a second place finish at the Skyler Trull Memorial and was quick to make a statement that his car would live to his nickname "Kid Quick." He grabbed the pole for the race and led every lap in route to his second career Carolina Clash victory.

G.R. Smith of Cornelius, NC was very fast over most of the event and even challenged Mitchell late in the event but could not overhaul the leader.

Carquest Rookie of the Year from 2016 Brett Hamm rebounded from early season woes at Cherokee Speedway to finish third. 2016 point champion Johnny Pursley finished fourth and 2015 point champion Ben Watkins scored a fifth place run.

The Carolina Clash would like to thank Mr. and Mrs. Jim Long, Jr. of Fayetteville Motor Speedway for hosting the Carolina Clash for this 9th annual memorial race. He announced at the beginning of the night that the 2018 version of the Ed Gibbons 10th Annual Memorial Race would be a $10,000 to win event. Fayetteville Motor Speedway is quickly emerging as one a top-notch southeastern US dirt speedway with all of the major improvements that Mr. Long and his staff have made there. Many more renovations are currently being planned and track surface improvements are ongoing, with great feedback being given from drivers after last weekend. Many indicated that if turns one and two become as fast as the other corners, which received all of the off-season resurfacing, the track is going to be bad, bad fast!

Johnny Pursley Captures Checkers In 17th Annual Skyler Trull Memorial Race

 

By Mark Huey, Carolina Clash Press

 

Purlsey gains triumph after post-race weight infraction voids Ferguson victory.

 

Gastonia, North Carolina (3/11/17) - Johnny Pursley finally got to lift the Skyler Trull Memorial Trophy high above his car this past Saturday night at Carolina Speedway. After coming across the start finish line as the race leader after lap 1, Pursley knew exactly how fast his car was and what its potential was.

"I really feel like we had one of the fastest cars here tonight. It was a good piece to drive and really thought we could have held the lead over most of the race until that (lap 18) caution."

Pursley led the first 15 laps of the race until pole sitter Chris Ferguson was able to rally passed Pursley at the start-finish line as a caution was being called. Scoring put Ferguson in front of Pursley at the point of caution and was credited with the race lead. Over the next two restarts, Ross Bailes powered around Pursley and began challenging Ferguson for the lead, putting Pursley in third. Over the next few restart attempts, Bailes pulled alongside of Ferguson but could never complete the pass. Then, as the race neared its final ten laps Ross Bailes slowed entering the third turn and a plume of steam erupted from the right front, an indication of a radiator puncture or water pump breaking. Bailes retired from the event to finish 12th after attrition sidelined 9 of the starting lineup of 22 during the first two-thirds of the event.


Ferguson would go on to pick up the win for his fourth Skyler Trull victory. However, while waiting to clear the scale area during post-race inspection, an announcement was made via the Carolina Speedway PA announcer that Ferguson was coming up "light at the scales." After several attempts to confirm the weight, it was declared his car did not meet post-race minimum weight (which is 2310 pounds given a "pound per green flag lap" burn-off rule as cars must weigh 2350 pounds during the event).

Pursley roared into victory lane for the win.

"There are so many people that worked hard to get this car ready. It was a good car all night. I have always wanted to win one of these races and we finally got it." Pursley was presented the trophy by Mr. Larry Trull who chairs the annual event in memory of his daughter Skyler.

Series newcomer Michael Brown of Pageland, SC (aka "Downtown") rallied from a 17th place starting spot to finish 5th in the grid. He earned the title of the events "Hard Charger of the Race." He is among several drivers who are eligible for the CarQuest Auto Parts Rookie of the Year. Michael Rouse, Brian Carswell and Tony Quarles are each eligible for the challenge thus far after race one.

Zack Mitchell stayed consistent over most of the event having been fifth to third and eventually finishing in second for his best series finish in recent months. Dennis Franklin started tenth and raced his way up to a third place finish. GR Smith made his return to Carolina Clash racing with a fourth place finish.

Rounding out the top ten were Donald Bradsher, Ricky Weeks, Jeff Smith, Scott Shirey and Ben Watkins.

Ricky Weeks and Ben Watkins were winners of the two heat races earlier in the event. Chris Ferguson was the fastest qualifier for the race and picked up a $500 bonus from the Trull Foundation for the triumph.

There were five former Carolina Clash champions represented in the top ten finishing results.

Willie "Wild Child" Milliken of Roanoke Rapids, NC is considering a run at the Carolina Clash Super Late Model title. Milliken turned many heads last season at Fayetteville Motor Speedway with a World of Outlaws triumph, which was eventually taken from him. Milliken won a Carolina Clash event there a few weeks later, after leading 39 of 40 laps at the Ed Gibbons Memorial Race, only to have Dennis Franklin slip beneath him for the pass for the win. Also, Michael Rouse of Wilson, NC was on hand for the event and could be a regular with the tour in his #23 entry.

The next series event is the inaugural Palmetto State Championship Clash at the Lancaster Super Speedway in Lancaster, SC on March 18, 2017.

The 2017 Carolina Clash Season Kicks Off With A $5,000 Event At The 17th Annual Skyler Trull Memorial On March 11 At Carolina Speedway In Gastonia, NC

By Mark Huey, Carolina Clash Press
Gastonia, NC

The Skyler Trull family and Carolina Speedway have always given dirt race fans in the piedmont of North and South Carolina a first-class racing experience to kick-off the racing season in the area. This most prestigious racing event is only a week away as once again Carolina Speedway's season opener will be the 17th Annual Carolina Clash Skyler Trull Memorial on March 9-11, 2017

"This is a special weekend every year," said Carolina Speedway's Bruce Arrants. "This is much more than a race and it has turned into a huge event that we are very proud to host."

The event held in the honor of Skyler Trull each March has become a fixture in the southeast over the last decade. Skylar's father Larry is a crew member and cousin of veteran racer Doug Sanders. Sanders' car carries the colors of the event each year. Skyler Trull was a special little girl whose family is deeply involved in dirt racing. When Skyler lost her battle with Leukemia on March 14th, 2000 she was only 5 years old. Her family decided a Memorial race in her honor would be a fitting tribute to the bright eyed redhead. The family went to work taking donations from fans and businesses to make the purse. The first STM was a $1,200 to win six-car dash.

"We are very honored and proud to be associated with the Skyler Trull Memorial", said Mark Huey of the Carolina Clash. "The Trull family has worked very hard to preserve the spirit of Skyler throughout the racing community and we are just happy to assist in any way possible."

Chris Ferguson is a three-time STM winner (2009, 2011, & 2015). Ross Bailes captured the flag in last year's thriller.

Carolina Clash & Ultimate Series Announce First Ever Co-Sanctioned Events

For the first time in history two of the Southeast’s most recognized Dirt Late Model Series will co-sanction a pair of events in 2017. Carolina Speedway in Gastonia, North Carolina will host both series on Friday night, May 19th for a $4000 to win / 40 lap feature event. The doubleheader will conclude on Saturday night, May 20thwith another $4000 to win / 40 lap event at Lavonia Speedway in Lavonia, Georgia. Details of the possible bonuses and other incentives are still being considered.

The Carolina Clash and the ULTIMATE Super Late Model Series have long been thought of as rivals in the region but today’s announcement ushers in a new era of cooperation between the groups. "It's just the right thing to do. We all need to work together rather than against each other to continue to be successful in this region. I was thrilled when Kelley (Carlton ULTIMATE Series Director) and I sat down and talked about working together. I think this is a great thing for racing and for our racers, promoters and race fans. It's a true win-win situation." commented Carolina Clash Co-Owner Bruce Arrants.

Carlton echoed the same sentiment. "The entire 5 years that I have been with the ULTIMATE Series one of the constant questions or suggestions I received was to do a co-sanctioned race with the Carolina Clash. Without fail I have gotten that at least once or twice a year. So when a promoter mentioned it to me this year I thought 'why not?'. So I called up Bruce and we got together and hashed out the details. I have always thought it was a best practice to try to work with instead of against your competition in this business. So we also shared schedules and compared dates to try and give all of customers the best season we can have in the region. There are some dates that we are racing at the same time but there is enough distance between us that it shouldn’t have any effect on each other." Carlton said.

Carolina Clash PR Director Mark Huey says it was time. "With all of the new rules that are coming out to improve safety we want to make sure we can do everything we can to maximize our fields for our promoters. The idea of working together is the right one. At the end of the day in addition to the entertainment that we provide, we are a business. And we need to do smart things to improve our business for everyone involved. I am excited about what this kind of cooperation can lead to."

At these events drivers will earn points with both series each night. Both events will utilize a Hoosier 1350 & 1600 or American Racer 48 & 56 tire rule. Both series use a similar format for setting the field which will also be used at these events. The only difference will be the starting field of 24 will allow for 2 point provisional starts for each series. Otherwise event rules will be governed by the respective lead series. The Carolina event will be led by Clash Officials and rules while the Lavonia event will be under the auspices of ULTIMATE.
