Smith Holds Off Conley For GIS Sunday NeSmith Late Model Win!
(February 7, 2016) - David Smith of Inman, SC held off a spirited challenge from Cale Conley of Vienna, WV to win the 50-lap Round 5 of the RockAuto.com Winter Shootout for the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series on Sunday at Golden Isles Speedway.

Smith was the only car that did not hot lap before the race because Smith knew what the track was going to be like in a rare daytime race for the NeSmith Late Models. The track did get black, hard and slick, and it was also a track Conley liked after running the pavement last season in the NASCAR Xfinity Series.

“Getting the pole last night was the key to winning this race, but I knew somebody was with me during the second half of the race,” Smith said. “Cale is a good racer and I knew he wouldn’t do anything to get us both in trouble. He really made me hit my marks and cover the bottom. We didn’t hot lap this morning because we only had four tires for this race, and we didn’t want to wear them out.” | more

Josh Richards Grabs $15,000 Georgia Boot Super Bowl of Racing Finale!
(February 7, 2016) - On Sunday afternoon at Golden Isles Speedway, Josh Richards takes the $15,000 finale of the Georgia Boot Super Bowl of Racing. The event was sanctioned by the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series. Jonathan Davenport, the reigning LOLMDS National Champion made a valiant effort on the final lap to pass Richards, but he spun allowing Richards to take the checkers first for the second time this weekend. Jared Landers slipped by Davenport for second, while Davenport re-gained control of his car to cross the line in third. Scott Bloomquist was fourth, followed by Eddie Carrier Jr.

Davenport led the first lap of the 60-lap event before Richards grabbed the lead on lap two. Richards then held the top spot over Davenport until lap 35 when Davenport was able to forge back into the lead. The two then dueled as Richards rallied back into the lead for good on lap 46.

"I kept watching the crew guys that were giving me signals. I knew he [Davenport] was still close when I was leading. He [Davenport] actually helped me when he passed me because he showed me another line. For a day race, the track had plenty of grip to it. I was conserving my tires, I didn't know if they would last, but they did. The track crew did a great job with the track! To win twice down here, it's a great start to the season." | more

Super Bowl 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. | more

Jonathan Davenport Dominates $7,000 Edwin Coggins Memorial at Golden Isles
(February 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 top five.

"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 pretty close"

"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." | more

Super Bowl 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

Edge Dominates Night One for NeSmith Late Models at Golden Isles Speedway
(February 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 Carroll Photo)

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

Josh Richards Holds off Brandon Sheppard to Win at Golden Isles!
(February 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

"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 Dewitt and Cecil Eunice rounded out the top five. | more
