Ross Bailes races to Carolina Clash victory lane at Cherokee
Making his first start in nearly two months, Ross Bailes returned to the driver’s seat of the Billy Hicks-owned No. 79 Late Model on Sunday afternoon at Cherokee Speedway (Gaffney, S.C.) for the Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series-sanctioned Hall of Fame 50.
Laying down the fastest lap in a field of 18 cars, Bailes locked into the pole for the 50-lap feature. Inheriting the lead on lap 34 when the race-long pacesetter suffered a flat tire, Ross rolled to his fourth win of the season and 23rd career Carolina Clash victory. He claimed the $7,500 payday ahead of Ben Watkins, Dennis Franklin, Anthony Sanders, and Dale Timms.Back to News
