Bubba Pollard Wins GAS 100-Lapper at “The Melon”

Third Win of the Season Comes After Beating the Heat at Watermelon Capital Speedway



Finishing races on a day when it is 103 degrees is a true test in its self. Winning races under the same conditions takes a real racecar driver. Bubba Pollard outlasted the heat to make a late-race pass to score his third win of the season and his second in the Georgia Asphalt Series.

Pollard’s victory at Watermelon Capital Speedway (GA) was a true test of his driving ability.

“It feels really good to win with a car that was as loose as ours was,” said Pollard. “We got into another car on lap 30 and the car was so loose and free that we were going to come in to pit to work on it. I looked up and saw they were giving one to go, so I dialed some more front brake into it and decided to work with what we had.”

The move turned out to be a good call, as many cars were struggling with loose conditions. A few laps later, the car came right to Pollard and he marched to the front, making a pass for the lead with only five laps reaming.

“The car was still pretty loose, and I don’t want to say I just out-drove everybody, but I seemed to get enough out of it to get the victory. I had enough experience to get the job done.”

For Pollard, the Watermelon Capital triumph was his third win this season in 12 starts. He also has seven top-five finishes along the way in several different series, all with different sets of rules for the chassis and engine.

“We made some changes to this car with the motor in our Hamke (chassis) car. This car has also been in both Pro Late Model events and Super Late Model events. So keeping up with the changes and the weight is hard, but we have done really well at getting the balance each week.”

Pollard, along with his family-owned team, have been on top of their game this season at getting those changes done in order to be able to race each week.

“It makes me feel good that we can run a Pro Late Model and then run a Super the next week and be competitive doing both. It’s not easy, but we seem to be pretty strong everywhere we go. We’re looking forward to the rest of the season, and hopefully we can have some more good runs.”

Pollard will be back in action on June 14th at New Senoia Speedway in Senoia, Georgia. He looks to grab win number three this season on the GAS tour.
