of Racing Race Report (Afternoon Show) - February 6, 2016
(February 6, 2016) - The super powers were evident
Saturday afternoon at Golden Isles Speedway. "Superman"
Jonathan Davenport flew to the point at the drop of the green
flag and rolled to the Edward Coggins Memorial 30-lap Lucas Oil
Late Model Dirt Series Super Bowl on Dirt feature victory. Davenport
beat Friday night's winner Josh Richards to turn one and led every
circuit in green to checkered fashion and pocketed $7,000.
Brian Shirley also moved by Richards early as the
choice of groove was right down on the low brim. Richards made
one last effort at the checkered flag with Shirley nosing ahead.
Jared Landers and Steve Francis came next. The chassis battle
is even at one. Rocket Chassis took the top two spots Friday.
Saturday's first of a day/night doubleheader went to Longhorn
in first and second.
Nick Hoffman repeated his Wednesday win in the Southeast
Dirt Modified Series. The North Carolina Elite Chassis pilot took
the lead early, waited out a handful of cautions and sped to the
30-lap, $2,000 victory. Friday night winner Kyle Strickler overtook
Cody Parker near the halfway mark, but could not catch Hoffman.
New York's Rich Michael, Jr. kept his string of third place finishes
in tact - taking the position for the third time in as many races.
Nick Stroupe and Derrick Ramey rounded out the top five.
Davenport Dominates $7,000 Edwin Coggins Memorial at Golden Isles
6, 2016) - The reigning Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series
National Champion, Jonathan Davenport led all 30 laps to win the
Edwin Coggins Memorial on Saturday afternoon at Golden Isles Speedway.
Davenport would get the jump on last night's winner, Josh Richards
to the lead at the outset of the feature. Brian Shirley would
get by Richards on the opening lap and hold the position until
the checkered flag, barely edging Richards at the finish line.
Jared Landers and 11th starting Steve Francis rounded out the
"The whole key to the race was the start. I
knew I had to beat Josh off the start. We found a rubber streak
there that helped us in lapped traffic, I was a little nervous
trying to get by those guys. I finally decided to get to the outside
and go by them because I knew the guys behind me were probably
"We couldn't do this without the help of a
lot of people. Troy Baird of Baird Transport, Bryson Motorsports,
Mac Trailers, and everybody else that supports us. We still have
work to do. But it's a big confidence boost for the team."
of Racing Complete Race Report - February 5, 2016
(February 5, 2016) - Drivers before the feature
cited tire wear as a reason to be conservative. Josh Richards
must not have listened. The Rocket blasted from his pole starting
position and won the Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model Series 50-lap feature
Friday evening at Golden Isles Speedway during the Super Bowl
on Dirt. Richards built a sizeable advantage over Brandon Shepard,
but saw that shrink during cautions and late in the race when
Shepard made a last charge. The New Berlin, Ill. pilot even snuck
by Richards, Shinnston, W.V., at the line with four laps to go
and then slid too hard into turn one handing the top spot back
to Richards. It may not have mattered anyway as the Rocket Chassis
house car was just that good on its way to a $10,000 pay day.
Shepard, who subbed for Richards a couple years
ago in that ride, held off a charging Jonathan Davenport for the
runner up spot. Davenport spun early in the race, kept going,
dropped back to 15th and the 2015 LODLMS champion mounted his
charge back to the front. Jared Landers and Chris Madden rounded
out the top five.
Kyle Strickler started third, but led all 40 laps
to become the second different Southeast Dirt Modified Series
winner in two Super Bowl races. Ohio's Jessie Wisecarver attempted
a couple inside moves during the latter stages and settled for
second. Rich Michael, Jr., Jason Beaulieu and Chris Arnold came
next. | more
Night One for NeSmith Late Models at Golden Isles Speedway
5, 2016) - Chase Edge of LaFayette, AL was the man to
beat on Friday night at Golden Isles Speedway, as he won Night
1 of the RockAuto.com Winter Shootout for the NeSmith Chevrolet
Dirt Late Model Series. Edge took the lead from Ryan Carter of
Blackshear, GA on lap three, and never looked back in the 50-lap
race to claim the top prize of $2,500. (Bruce
Edge started out the evening by out-qualifying the
29-car field with a lap around the 4/10-mile clay oval in the
Edge's Gas Company Special in 16.344 seconds to earn the pole
position for the bug show. Edge took the lead on the initial start,
but a multi-car tangle in turn one brought about a complete restart.
Carter got the hole shot on the next green flag,
and put his Mark's Auto and Collision Special in the lead. Edge
was able to get his momentum up on the second lap, and then sailed
around Carter to take the lead he would never relinquish on the
third tour around Golden Isles Speedway. | more
Holds off Brandon Sheppard to Win at Golden Isles!
5, 2016) - Josh Richards held off a late race charge
from Brandon Sheppard to win on the opening night of the Georgia
Boot Super Bowl of Racing at Golden Isles Speedway on Friday Night.
Richards led but all but one lap on his way to victory in the
Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series event.
Sheppard; the 2015 LOLMDS Rookie of the Year; briefly
took the lead from Richards with four laps to go, but Richards
regained the top spot moments later and went on for his seventh
career LOLMDS win. Sheppard crossed the line a car length and
a half behind in second, followed by; last year's series champion;
Jonathan Davenport, Jared Landers, and Chris Madden.
"We had a pretty decent car the whole race,"
said 28-year-old Richards. I was concerned about tire wear tonight;
I felt like they were giving up towards the end. When we got into
traffic, we were able to run the top around those guys in clean
air and a clean track, which sure helped us, because those running
behind me didn't have that advantage." | more

Carter's car would be something as special as all the offseason
improvements at Golden Isles Speedway. That carried over to Wednesday's
Super Bowl on Dirt opener on the Georgia red clay. Carter led
all 30 laps to win the GIS Late Model feature and finished nearly
a straightaway ahead of runner up Kyle Vansickle. (Troy
"This thing ran great from the start,"
Carter said of his 44 Trucking/Mac Forestry machine. "I can't
thank all the people that help enough."
Carter put quick distance on the field and threaded
rather easily through lapped traffic. Donnie Chappell stayed the
closest early, but fell victim to mechanical woes to bring out
the event's first caution on Lap 16. Jason Fitzgerald, Brandon
