What won the race: Polesitter Ross Bailes of Clover, S.C., inherited the lead when Payton Freeman slowed with a flat tire on lap 32 and paced the remaining circuits to win Friday's 40-lap Ultimate Southeast Super Late Model Series-sanctioned Max King Memorial at Lavonia Speedway. He beat Ethan Wilson to the finish line by 1.133 seconds for his fourth overall triumph of 2021.
Key notes: Bailes led the race's first 23 laps before being overtaken by the third-starting Freeman, who appeared primed for his first-ever Ultimate Southeast victory until a flat right-rear tire ended his bid on lap 32. ... Bailes went on to his first Ultimate Southeast triumph of 2021 and the ninth of his career, putting him a four-way tie for fourth on the tour's all-time win list. ... Bailes's last Ultimate Southeast successes came on Nov. 6-7, 2020, when he won at Lancaster (S.C.) Speedway and Carolina Speedway in Gastonia, N.C. ... Fayetteville, N.C.'s Ethan Wilson's runner-up finish was his best ever on the series. ... The A-main lasted 23 minutes with eight competitors completing all 40 laps. ... Friday marked the tour's only planned event at Lavonia this season and its 10th visit since 2013.
On the move: Doug Sanders of Springwood, N.C., started 15th and finished ninth.
Winner's sponsors: Bailes drove a Billy Hicks-owned Longhorn Chassis powered by a Vic Hill Racing Engine and sponsored by H&H Auto Sales and Hoosier Tire.
Points chase: Entering the weekend: 1. Anthony Sanders (220); 2. Dustin Mitchell (218); 3. Cla Knight (217); 4. Jeff Smith (215); Zack Mitchell (212).
