WAYNESVILLE, GA (May 20, 2020) – Kyle Bronson took advantage of some late race misfortune on lap 30 and went on to lead the final ten laps on Wednesday Night at Golden Isles Speedway. The win marks his fourth career Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series victory.

Bronson was running third when leader Devin Moran broke in turn four and made contact with second-place running Josh Richards. Richards’ car sustained a flat right front tire which forced him to the hot pit for a tire change. Moran went to the pits as his night was done.

Bronson then pulled away from second-place running Tyler Erb to pick-up his first Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series win of the season and become the seventh different driver to win in ten events for 2020. Bronson’s winning margin over Erb was 1.939 seconds. Tuesday’s race winner at Golden Isles, Jimmy Owens, saw his streak of wins end with a third-place finish. Shane Clanton came home in fourth and the hard charger of the race, Tim McCreadie was fifth.

The 29-year-old Florida racer started 11th in a stout field of entrants. “It was kind of tough out there tonight. I hate what happened when Moran broke and Josh got into him. It was one of those days when we had a pretty good car, and everything fell our way. I felt like we lost a bunch of races during Speedweeks in February when we had really good cars and things didn’t go our way and I felt like today everything just fell in place.”

Tyler Erb’s runner-up finish moved him to third in the championship points standings behind leader Brandon Sheppard and Tim McCreadie. “It was tough out there. The top was so fast at the beginning. I made up some time on the bottom. All those guys were just flirting with disaster on that top and Kyle is really good at running the top. Once he got ahead of me on that last restart I knew I was in trouble. You have to get those guys on the restart. We are just really happy to finish second tonight.”

Entering the race night Owens had won six out of his last seven starts overall and came home third behind Bronson and Erb. “I am pretty happy with third tonight. We tried some stuff to make the car a little better and I think we made it worse. With all of that rainwater on it, it never got slick. It was probably faster tonight than it has been since we got here. We just missed it. We expected it to be a lot slicker than it was. It was just hammer down all night long.”

The winner’s Rocket Chassis is powered by a Durham Racing Engine and sponsored by Brandon Ford, Brandon Collision, Lucas Oil Products, Borchers Equipment, Race Car Engineering, Earnhardt Technologies, VP Fuels, Hoosier Tires, and Swift Springs.

Completing the top ten were Steven Roberts, Jonathan Davenport, Mason Zeigler, Brandon Sheppard and Rick Eckert.
