Scotty Ellis appeared to be on his way to the biggest win of his career, but a late restart resulted in Kyle Grissom visiting a Southern Super Series presented by Sunoco victory lane for the second straight race.

As the field came up through the gear box on a restart with nine laps to go in the FourStar Freightliner 125 presented by PFC Brakes at Crisp Motorsports Park (GA), Ellis missed a shift and Grissom shot to the lead from the bottom lane. After that it was clear sailing for Grissom over the final nine circuits of the Cordele, Georgia speedway.

Grissom started on the front row and led early before Ellis took over for much of the event, but it was the final nine laps that mattered most. And it was the final nine laps that Grissom led.

“I just kind of laid back in the middle and then we started catching cautions,” Grissom said. “Luckily, we got that last restart and were able to get by Scotty. We were able to get out front and stretch our legs, hit my marks and come home with a win.” (more…)
