Speeds to GIS I-95 Toyota Late Model Challenge Series Victory!
(August 6, 2016) - The red gumbo clay rooster
tail flying off Devin Dixon's spoiler disappeared in the distance.
That is the gap the Apollo Beach, Fla. driver had through most
of the I-95 Toyota Late Model Challenge Series 30-lap feature
Saturday evening at Golden Isles Speedway. Dixon set sail in the
Dave's Towing/Big Frog Motorsports/Integra Shocks Rocket and won
the event with the $3,000 top prize. Early in the race was quite
a clash with Mark Whitener.
"Beginning of the race we were too tight on
entry - first five or six laps," Dixon said. "Whitener
got around me and then about halfway through the race the car
really started coming around and freed up a little bit and got
back by him. The car was really good tonight." |
Limiteds: Lloyd, Payne, Wooten, Ammons, Bruner, Clark Also Win
(July 23, 2016) - The sigh of relief probably
was synonymous with a tire deflating. One can only imagine that
was Ryan Carter's reaction Saturday evening at Golden Isles Speedway.
Carter swept the Limited Late Model show, topping off the night
with a flag-to-flag win in the 25-lap feature. That followed setting
quick time amongst the 13 entries.
The high was about shot down on Lap 7 after Carter
had paced the initial six laps. The caution flew as Carter sat
in Turn 2 180 degrees from the correct direction. According to
track officials, the yellow was tossed for the car of Charlie
Davis that stalled attempting to drive into the pit entrance off
that same turn. Carter was awarded his top spot back and he checked
out from there. | more
the Air as Whitener Bags $3,000 I-95 Toyota LM Run!
(May 21, 2016) - A battle. Some magic. Another
battle. More magic. The Magicman endured all of that and Mark
Whitener took home the $3,000 I-95 Toyota Late Model Challenge
Series feature Saturday evening at Golden Isles Speedway. Whitener,
Middleburg, Fla., won his heat and started the finale outside
of polesitter, fast qualifier and other heat winner Devon Dixon.
The latter wheeled the Big Frog Shock and Suspension Technology/Dave's
Towing/Big Frog Signs and Graphix Koury-powered Rocket to the
point at the drop of the green with Whitener in hot pursuit.
Dixon would only open a couple car length advantage
until the first magic for Whitener's United Land Clearing/Racecar
Engineering Koury-powered Longhorn. Dixon was collected by a spinning
lapped car on Lap 11 sending the Apollo Beach, Fla. pilot and
Big Frog Motorsports machine pitside. Whitener inherited the lead
and stayed there, but not after a plethora of cautions and a battle
with Tyler Crowder. Both survived a Lap 13 caution that saw a
good amount of vehicles with damage and stopping to have sheet
metal pulled. | more
to Take Limited Super 5 Challenge Win at GIS!!!
(May 14, 2016) - It was good to be out front.
Or maybe it was not. Michael Lloyd took advantage of demolition
derby-type situations and won the Limited Late Model Super 5 Challenge
at Golden Isles Speedway Saturday evening. "It was good just
to finish," Lloyd said. "The car had some damage, but
the night turned out all right. I'd rather be lucky than good
Polesitter Woodrow Mullis had built a straightaway advantage
as Lloyd moved into second in the 25-lapper. The 17-year old superstar
was then gathered in a crash from Cecil Eunice spinning in turn
three on Lap 12 and was forced pitside to change a tire. "We
started picking off some cars," Lloyd said. "We were
way behind. (Mullis) probably would've won if he wasn't in the
wreck, but we were gaining people said." | more

(April 23, 2016) - Donnie Ashford has proven
more than once his Diggin Deep Racing team is not afraid to put
the racer on the trailer and travel. The Deland, Fla. ace made
his first 2016 appearance at Golden Isles Speedway pay off. He
took the NeSmith Performance Street Stock Super Challenge 5 Series
feature Saturday evening and beat a top flight of cars in the
process. Ashford, coming off a win at another track a couple weeks
before, cashed in on the $2,000 first prize and launched to the

fast enough for Billy Ammons. No one could pass Ammons Saturday
at Golden Isles Speedway. Not even close. Ammons rocketed from
the pole position and dominated the Enduro 25-lap Super Challenge
5 Series feature on opening night at GIS. He pocketed $1,000 for
the victory. Charles Smith tucked into the runner up spot at the
green flag, but, even with a handful of restarts, had nothing
to muster to overtake the longtime racer.
John Carlino drove well and was helped out by attrition
to take third with three laps left. Kyle Davis started 17th and
picked his way to fourth followed by Tim Keener. The Super 5 Challenge
Series is a five-race series for all GIS regular classes.
