Richards Grabs Rhino Ag Super Bowl of Racing Finale

WAYNESVILLE, GA (February 11, 2017) – In his first career-season competing full-time on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series, Josh Richards won Saturday Night’s Rhino Ag Super Bowl of Racing presented by General Tire finale at Golden Isles Speedway. Richards took the lead on lap three and never looked back. The victory marks his 13th career LOLMDS victory, and his first win after having joined the Best Performance Motorsports Team last November.

Richards led defending series champion Scott Bloomquist’s Reece Monument Company, Crop Production Services, Sweet-Bloomquist Chassis and Brandon Overton’s Chip Stone, Longhorn to the finish line by several car lengths. Bloomquist and Overton had a spirited race for most of the 60-lap main event as Overton tried several times to get by Bloomquist. Brian Shirley finished in fourth, followed by the 2015 LOLMDS National Champion, Jonathan Davenport.

“I don’t know what to say right now. Thanks to all of fans for their support. It [switching race teams] was one of the toughest decisions I have ever made. I have always wanted to work with Randall [Edwards]. I can’t thank these guys enough for this opportunity. It’s great to win the second night out in this car. Everything is new on this ride and we are just trying to get acclimated to it,” said the 28-year-old in Lucas Oil Victory Lane.

Rebounding from the previous night – where Richards had started on the front row, but faded to sixth at the finishn- he was elated for a better outcome. “I made an adjustment that I didn’t realize I had made last night and it definitely cost us. I was kicking myself afterward because I had done it by accident. We’ve really had a good car all weekend, I’m glad that I didn’t make the same mistake tonight. I can’t thank these guys enough for having faith in me!” (more…)

Wooten and Eunice Shine Brightest in GIS SC5 Runs on August 27!

golden isles logo(August 27, 2016) – The stars may not have littered the sky on a cloud-covered evening. But the stars of the NeSmith Performance Street Stocks shined brightly Saturday evening at Golden Isles Speedway. None was more vivid then Brian Wooten. The B-dub Express topped a stellar field from three states to win the Super Challenge 5 Series 25-lap feature. He led every circuit on the 4/10-mile, red gumbo clay oval.

“Car did pretty good,” Wooten said of his $2,000 win. “Track was a little off this week. I’m not used to the track being this wet. I don’t like it this wet so I have a little homework to do, but it worked out tonight.”

Rain fell during the day three different times leaving a tacky surface throughout the program. That did not stop Wooten shooting from the pole and then opening the advantage again after a handful of restarts. The regular GIS high flyers were in the house as well as the aces from elsewhere. Richie Stephens, Kyle Livingood, Robert Hicks and Ronnie Newsome rounded out the top five. Justin McRee, Woodstock, Ala., jumped into the Dunn Motorsports High Roller Race Cars house car. The Late Model veteran won his heat, but went backwards some in the main and took seventh.

“They are the best of the best,” Wooten added. “Richie has helped me a tremendous amount and to have Justin start beside me and beat him tonight is just unreal.” (more…)
