Double E Doubles Up With A Pair Of NeSmith Late Model Wins At The Mag

by Roby Helm
COLUMBUS, MS – Evan Ellis of Plantersville, MS made it two straight wins in NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series competition at Magnolia Motor Speedway on Sunday night driving the Ellis Welding Special. Ellis took the lead from Jeremy Shaw of Millport, AL on lap 17, and then checked out into another zip code for the $2,000 victory.

“I had no idea how big of a lead I had, but my car was really rolling tonight, and I just seemed to get to the lapped cars at the right time where it wouldn’t slow my momentum to get by them,” Ellis said. “I know I got around Jeremy Shaw to take the lead, but he’s pretty tough to beat on this track, so I knew I couldn’t make a mistake, or he would be there to get around me.”

It would have had to have been a pretty big mistake, as Ellis had a 6.636 margin of victory in a caution-free race that took just 11 minutes and 43 seconds to complete 40 laps. Shaw finished second in the Freeman Farms Trak-Star.

An exciting side-by-side late-race duel for the third spot was won by Kyle Shaw of Millport, AL in the Sweddenberg Logging Trak-Star. Chase Edge of LaFayette, AL had to settle for fourth by just a few inches at the checkered flag in the Edge’s Gas Company Special. Ryan King of Seymour, TN was fifth in the Brian King Roofing Stinger and was the Cruise With Champions Rookie of the Race.

Mike Boland of Cuba, AL drove the Boland Performance Trak-Star “House Car” to a sixth-place finish and two-time NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series National Champion Eric Cooley of Fulton, MS finished seventh in the Bryson Motorsports/Cooley Transport Special. Chase Washington of Houlka, MS started 16th in the Backwoods T-Shirts Special and finished eighth to earn the Beyea Headers Hard Charger of the Race Award.

Daniel Bridgeman of Meridian, MS took the ninth spot in the Robinson Electric Special, and Matt Henderson of Loudon, TN rounded out the top ten in the Rebel Diesel Rocket #H2 Duayne Hommel Tribute Car. Henderson was also the fast qualifier among the 41 entrants with a lap around the 3/8-mile clay oval in 14.376 seconds.

In other preliminary action, the three ten-lap B-Main Races were won by the defending and two-time NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series National Champion and current point leader Ronnie Johnson of Chattanooga, TN in the NeSmith Chevrolet Special, Bridgmon, and Boland.

Jeremy Shaw took the lead at the start of the race from his outside front row starting position followed by Justin McRee of Woodstock, AL in the High Roller Race Cars Special. Pole sitter Henderson dropped back to third followed by Ellis and Edge. Henderson began to drop back through the field in the early laps of the race with what was reported to be a broken shock.

Ellis passed Henderson for third on lap two, and then Edge and King moved up to fourth and fifth respectively on lap four. Shaw reached the cars on the tail end of the lead lap on the ninth tour, and carried a half a straightaway lead on McRee into the traffic. Ellis moved up to the second spot on lap 14 and set sail looking for the leader Jeremy Shaw.

Ellis made an inside move on Jeremy Shaw going into turn three in heavy lapped traffic to take the lead. One lap later, McRee drove around Shaw to take over the second spot. On lap 22, McRee suddenly slowed in turn one and made a hard right through the pit gate in turn two, ending his evening while the rest of the field remained hammer down under green.

Ellis had opened up a full straightaway lead over Jeremy Shaw by lap 30, while Edge, King and Kyle Shaw battled for the third spot. Kyle Shaw got by Edge for third on lap 35, but Edge came back to retake the spot on lap 37. Kyle Shaw reloaded and took another shot at Edge for third on the last lap, and took the checkered flag by six inches in front of Edge.

The next pair of races for the NeSmith Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series will take place this Friday night and Saturday night at I-75 Raceway in Sweetwater, TN for Rounds 20 and 21 of the 2015 season. The Friday night race will be 40-laps and $2,000-to-win, and the Saturday night race will be 50-laps and $2,500-to-win.
