Ross Bailes dominates 31st Annual ULTIMATE SLM Laurens County Shrine Race

LAURENS, S.C. (June 14) - Ross Bailes admitted after Tuesday night's Super Late Model Shrine race at Laurens County Speedway that he had gotten down on himself earlier in the year because of problems with his car. Those problems certainly didn't present themselves as Bailes put on a dominating display in front of a stellar field and record crowd. The $3,000 victory was Ross Bailes biggest win to date, and surprisingly enough his 2nd ever in a super late model. His first victory came just 3 days before at Laurens Speedway as well.

Bailes started on the outside for row 1, choosing that spot despite having the fastest time in the field during qualifying (14.430 seconds). Bailes turned the outside position to an advantage when he got by the 17 car of Mike Gault at the start of the race. As the race went on and Bailes expanded his lead over the field, it became apparent that he had the best car in the field. At one point during the race he had built an astonishing 7.256-second lead on Cannon, who was about a full straight-away behind at that point. Local favorite Chris Madden and Ultimate point's leader Chris Ferguson started deep in the field with poor qualifying efforts and the pair raced hard to the front. While Bailes was cruising along, a couple others weren't quite as fortunate. LCS regular Larry Timms had the roughest night of any of the drivers, putting his car into the wall on the first attempt at a start to the race. He did not return and finished the race in 17th. Billy Rushton took 11th place after consecutive second-place finishes in the regular Saturday night SLM races at the speedway. As the race neared its conclusion, it appeared Bailes would maintain his large lead but a caution with four laps brought the field back together. Cannon was briefly within striking distance but a solid restart coming off turn 4 allowed Bailes to pull away for the win.

The ULTIMATE Series next event will be a double header weekend Saturday July 2nd at 311 Speedway in Madison, NC and Sunday July 3rd at Cherokee Speedway in Gaffney, SC. Many of the Ultimate Series Regulars (Ferguson, Roberts, Bailes, Madden, Davenport and more) will be in action this Friday Night July 17th as the Lucas Oil National Touring Series rolls into Cherokee Speedway for the $10,000 Grassy Smith Memorial.
