Mark Douglas led all the way for a $4,000 Carolina Clash victory.
What won the race: Mark Douglas of Knoxville, Tenn., led all 40 laps Saturday night at Volunteer Speedway, earning $4,000 for his first victory on the Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series. He survived a restart with four laps remaining to secure the checkered flag over Donald McIntosh of Dawsonville, Ga., by 2.65 seconds and become the third first-time series winner at Volunteer this season (Chad Ogle and Vic Hill were the others).
Key notes: Eight drivers completed 40 laps. ... McIntosh ran second most of the way with Vic Hill taking a turn up front at the race's midpoint. ... Bryan Hendrix drew a lap-15 caution and Tommy Kerr was shuffled out of the top five on the restart. ... A lap-16 yellow appeared for Ellery Leake's spin. ... Joey Coulter and Ross White were involved in a lap-22 yellow. ... The final caution appeared on lap 36 when Hill and Mack McCarter tangled battling for third with McCarter spinning. ... Blount Motorsports team members scrambled to swap transmissions in McIntosh's front-row car before the main event. ... Prelims were briefly delayed by problems with track lighting. ... The event was the fourth of five scheduled Carolina Clash races at Bulls Gap. ... Volunteer hosts the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series on Aug. 20.
