His weekend victories, totaling $10,000 in earnings, brought his 2020 tally to seven.

On Friday night at Lancaster (S.C.) Speedway posted the second fastest time in his qualifying group behind Tyler Carpenter, locking him into the fourth-starting position for the A-Main.

With a handful of cautions slowing the 40-lapper, Ross inherited the lead late after Zack Mitchell suffered a flat tire. Fending Daulton Wilson on the final lap, Bailes soared his sixth win of the season over Wilson, Dennis Franklin, Cla Knight, and Benji Hicks. He earned $5,000.

In a field of 19 Ultimate Southeast Series entries on Saturday at Carolina Speedway in Gastonia, N.C., Ross laid down the fastest lap overall in time trials, placing him on the pole for the feature.

Leading wire-to-wire, Bailes cruised to his eighth career Ultimate triumph over Chris Ferguson, Trent Ivey, Tyler Carpenter, and Derrick Ramey. Pocketing $5,000, Ross recorded his second win in as many nights and seventh of the season. (Ritchie Photography)

“We had a really good night. Set fast time, led every lap. The track was a little wet, but there at the end it got good,” said Bailes. “It’s not really hard on tires, it just they get so hot you’ve got to, you know, be a little bit easy with them and make sire you’ve got something at the end.”
