BAILES LEADS ALL THE WAY EN ROUTE TO FIRST WOOLMS VICTORY!
(May 3, 2019)
Eleven races into 2019 and the World of Outlaws Morton Buildings Late Model Series has their first first-time winner of the season. Ross Bailes picked up the win and beat the Outlaws for $10,000 in front of his home-state crowd on Friday night at the Cherokee Speedway. Brandon Sheppard yet again scored another second-place finish, after starting fifth and chasing Bailes throughout the latter part of the race. Don O’Neal had a solid showing as well, coming from ninth and climbing to third after battling with Chris Madden and Brandon Overton.

It was almost a perfect night for the Clover, SC-native, as he picked up the PFC Brakes Fast Time Award, won his Drydene heat race, redrew the outside pole and led all 50 laps of the Morton Buildings Feature. But it certainly was no cakewalk, as Bailes had the Rocket1 Racing ride of Sheppard knocking on his door for over half of the race.
Sheppard started out steady, passing a car for position here and there before finally making the move around Madden for second on lap 17. It was at that moment Sheppard began to track down the Bailes Construction #87. Several restarts presented opportunities for Sheppard to make the move, but to no avail. Until the final 10 laps…

Bailes said he initially didn’t see the #1 of Sheppard stick his nose underneath. A late restart put Sheppard right on the Barry Wright house car’s rear bumper, and despite “The Rocket Shepp’s” best efforts, Bailes was able to ride the high line and hold off Sheppard’s heavy pressure!

I felt good on the bottom and then when I got to lapped traffic I was slowing down. I knew I needed to search around and do something different. My crew guys told me to move up and when I did the car felt really good up there.”

Bailes added: “This place is awesome. I think if we would have run another 50 laps it would have been even better. I was happy with it. There was grip on the bottom . I didn’t have to worry about the top for the first half of the race and then it got racy all over. This win is now at the top of my list for sure. Maybe we can get another one tomorrow night at North Georgia. I want to thank Barry and Lance Wright, Ronnie McCarter and all of my crew it was a great team win that’s for sure.”
