CALLAWAY, VA – Bubba Pollard made a late race pass on Sammy Smith in the Super Late Model Division of the Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour AutosByNelson.com 250 at Franklin County Speedway in Callaway, Virginia on Saturday night.

Sammy Smith started on the pole in the Super Late Model portion of the AutosByNelson.com 250, but Bubba Pollard saved his best for last, working his way through the field after a lengthy delay for rain at lap 25 and picking up his third win of 2020. It was Pollard’s ninth career Solid Rock Carriers CARS Tour victory in his first career start at Franklin County Speedway.

“I knew we had a good shot just because our program’s really good anywhere we go,” Pollard said in Victory Lane after the race. “This place is fun. We took off there at the beginning of the race before the red flag and rode around. We didn’t know what to expect.”

The rain slowed racing for approximately two hours, and when racing resumed around 9:45 p.m. ET, Pollard said it changed the dynamics of the racing drastically.

“I guess the rain got everybody excited because I think I qualified for 100 laps,” Pollard said. “It was crazy. I’ve never seen anything like it. [Sammy Smith] probably had a better car tonight. We just got around him on a restart and were able to be out front. Never seeing the place, we just brought a baseline setup.”

Smith went on to finish second while Gus Dean, Jake Garcia and series points leader Matt Craig rounded out the top five.
