The "Killer B" Kyle Bronson raced from his ninth starting position Wednesday night at Golden Isles Speedway, near the South Georgia coast, to win his first race of 2020 with the Lucas Oil Dirt Late Model series.
The fans-less event hosted live on Lucas Oil Racing TV and on Facebook drew 40 top Super Late Model race teams and became a virtual demolition derby during the 40 lap A-main.
Early leader and overall fast qualifier of the night Devin Moran led the first 30 circuits until he triggered a multi-car incident that took him and second running Josh Richards out of contention. Third running Bronson of Brandon, Fla., was even caught up in the incident momentarily, but was able to continue and subsequently inherited the lead.
A second disastrous crash occurred a few laps later when Tuesday night's second runner up Brandon Overton caused a chain reaction wreck, crashing with Tyler Bruening hard. The race was red flagged as EMT's checked on Bruening, who was later cleared and released.
Bronson's beaten and battered # 40 "Brandon Ford and Collision, All Florida Real Estate Group, Racecar Engineering, Lucas Oil" sponsored XR1 Rocket / Durham Race Engines powered race car charged forth the final few laps and held off Tyler Erb (Tex.) and last night's winner Jimmy Owens #20 of Tennessee, for the $7,000 payday.
Georgian Shane Clanton was fourth overall with New York's Tim McCreadie fifth.
The third and final night for the mini series worth $5,000 at GIS is slated for Thursday at 7:30 p.m.
The Wednesday night event was run in a "hurry-up" mode by LODLM officials due to pending wet weather in the area south of the track.
