Carter Dominates GIS Limiteds Lloyd, Payne, Wooten, Ammons, Bruner, Clark Also Take Checkers


By Rob Lee WAYNESVILLE, Ga. (July 23) – The sigh of relief probably was synonymous with a tire deflating.
  One can only imagine that was Ryan Carter’s reaction Saturday evening at Golden Isles Speedway.
Carter swept the Limited Late Model show, topping off the night with a flag-to-flag win in the 25-lap feature. That followed setting quick time amongst the 13 entries.
  The high was about shot down on Lap 7 after Carter had paced the initial six laps. The caution flew as Carter sat in Turn 2 180 degrees from the correct direction.

Barker Showing GIS Championship Form…Again Seven Classes Battle Saturday On The Clay

WAYNESVILLE, Ga. (July 20)
– Johnny Barker climbed from his Camaro, mentally replaying the Enduro feature that just took the checkered flag at Golden Isles Speedway....
The fourth place finish July 8 during the Chuck Scott Tribute Race weekend had 12 drivers that placed behind the C & Y Automotive special salivating for that spot.
For Barker, it was his worst finish in five races. The Waynesville, Ga. pilot had two wins and a pair of runner ups prior.
  The hometowner is coming off a 2015 championship run and has quickly raced to the top of this season’s point list. He holds a double digit point advantage over Charles Smith and Billy Ammons. In the new Super Challenge 5 Series, Barker trails Ammons by just four markers with three of five races in.
  The switch from blue to red on the Camaro has just turned up the temperature of racing for Barker as he eyes both the regular season and SC5S titles.

Trevor Gamble, who let most of the first half of the race was third followed by Robert Sirmons and Grady Christen rounded out the top five.
 The main event of the night saw a wild one with the United Dirt Late Model Challenge Series. Jason Fitzgerald would jump out to the early lead over fellow front row starer Blake Spencer and lead most of the first half of the race as it wasn't until the races half way point the first caution flag would come out. at the half way point, the man on the move was fast qualifier Mark Whitener was on a charge from the back of the pack as he needed to switch to a Blake Spencer back up car due to mechanical failure in his #5. When the green came back out the battle was back on for the lead as Whitener would apply heavy pressure so Fitzgerald with only 20 laps to go until the lapped car of Carter Stokes would get into race leader Fitzgerald and Whitner. Fitzgerald was able to continue, but whitener was forced pit side with heavy damage to the right front ending his night. When the green came back out it looked like no one could touch Fitzgerald until the Jacksonville native lost his power plant setting up a dash for the win between Donnie Chappell and Joe Kump. The two would do battle until the end, but it was Chappell picking up the win in his newly acquired Bloomquist Chassis #44. Kump was second followed by David Clegg, Shan Smith and Jeremy Knoll.
 The fireworks did not stop there on the night as the Integrity Painting V8 Thunderstocks also put on a show for the fans from start to finish. Mike Tovet would lead the first several laps once the race got going after several caution flags. David Showers Jr. would be on the move and Dalton Strehle, who was driving for Bobby McCormick, would also be on the march forward challenging for the top spot. The race was red flagged in a scary incident just before half way as Alan Peacock and Chad Scranton go together on the front stretch sending Scranton on a wild ride flipping over Peacock. Both drivers were un injured. When the race resumed the action did as well with Tovet holding off every charge from Strehle and Showers Jr. With only two laps to go Showers Jr. made his winning pass on the 1Shot and went on to score "unofficially**" another win on the 2016 season.
