HAPPY FOR POLLARD AND SANDERS – HOWEVER, IF AUGIE GRILL DIDN’T HAVE BAD LUCK HE WOULDN’T HAVE ANY LUCK. I’M NOT AN AUGIE FAN, BUT BLESS HIS HEART!

Comment From MMS 

MAYBE YOU SHOULD PUT A “BOUNTY” ON BUBBA’S HEAD. THERE WAS ONE ON RONNIE AT MONTGOMERY MOTOR SPEEDWAY BACK IN THE MID/LATE 70’S WHEN HE DROVE CAR #18.

 

11:48

Still no word on Super Late Model tech thus far.

 

11:47

Donald Crocker has won the Modified race over Bubba Pollard and Gerald Wilkerson.

 

11:44

With two laps to go, Crocker leads by a full straigh-away on Pollard.

 

11:42

Halfway through the Modified feature, Donald Crocker leads Bubba Pollard.

 

11:35

Bubba Pollard’s right-front tire had been going flat in the later stages of the Super Late Model race.  The tire had lost several pounds of pressure when his car owner, Ronnie Sanders, checked it as soon as the 18 pulled into victory lane.

 

11:34

A spin on the opening lap of the Modifieds has brought out the red flag.  It appears that the car may have damaged the inside fence on the backstretch.

 

11:33

Bubba Pollard went right from victory lane into his Modified, where he started sixth.

 

11:31

The win unofficially earns Bubba Pollard the Sunoco Gulf Coast Championship.

 

11:30

The results are unofficial until the tech process has been completed.
