Caseys Celebrate: Smith Wins $10K Southern Super Series Title, Roderick Captures First Blizzard Crown; Pollard Takes Advantage of Wilson’s Late Troubles

By Chuck Corder

By Chuck Corder
The Night of Champions certainly didn’t disappoint.

Bubba Pollard capped a bizarre night for the Super Late Models in the Deep South Crane Rentals Blizzard Series/Southern Super Series finale by capturing the Deep South Crane Rentals 150 courtesy of the untimely demise of Donnie Wilson.

Wilson, whose fellow drivers freely admitted was the car to beat Saturday, watched his lead evaporate on Lap 130 when his No. 2 began to putter down the front stretch.

Pollard, who led the first 82 laps before Wilson emerged as the favorite, pounced

“We had a good car,” Pollard said. “I felt like something […]

Under Garvey’s Guidance, Teenage Sensation Garrett Jones Comes of Age Heading into Blizzard/SSS Finale

By Chuck Corder
It takes Garrett Jones a couple of rings before he answers his iPhone.
When he does, the 16-year-old late model driver’s voice, which has noticeably dropped several octaves, echoes like he’s trapped down a well.
“I just got my license!” Jones shouts from inside his 2015 Chevy Silverado, the cherished birthday gift bestowed upon him from his grandfather, Larry.
And, so, eight days after celebrating his Sweet 16, Jones has officially become a distracted driver. Thank you, Bluetooth.
But when Jones gets behind the Tracy Goodson No. 1 Super Late Model on Saturday at Five Flags Speedway for the Deep South Crane […]

After Years of Near Misses at Five Flags, Casey Smith Can Close Out Southern Super Title Saturday

By Chuck Corder
Heartbreak Hill is hands down the toughest portion of the Boston Marathon.
It’s a treacherous 0.4-mile ascent near the end of the 26.2-mile torture chamber that leaves its victims pleading for mercy.
Begrudgingly, Five Flags Speedway has become Casey Smith’s version of Heartbreak Hill. The Austin, Texas, Super Late Model driver has had more than his fair share of close calls and disappointments at the famed half-mile asphalt oval in the 15 years he has raced in Pensacola.
But at the Deep South Cranes Rental 150 come Saturday, with the Southern Super Series championship hanging in the balance, Smith has […]

Survival of the PLM Fittest: Thorn Wins Wild Tune-Up 100; Luza Celebrates Track Championship

By Chuck Corder
Tempers flared. Attitudes boiled over. It was a bizarre night.
In a cramped 35-car Pro Late Model field, the largest race waged all season at Five Flags Speedway, cautions were aplenty and nerves were frayed for the Allen Turner Tune-Up 100 on Saturday night.
At one point early in the race, nine yellows had waved in the first third of the race. A mind-boggling 50 caution laps have been logged to just 32 official laps.
California driver Derek Thorn, he of the barrel roll at the Snowball Derby several years ago, outlasted a deep lineup and an aggressive night of racing […]
