ZACH BAILEY BURST INTO OUTLAW MADDOG $ERIES VICTORY LANE

Clean Sweep Propels Twin Cities Racer Towards Top Of The Summer Series Standings

By 2020 MADDOG $ERIES Reporter
FOUNTAIN CITY, WI (Saturday June 06, 2020) – After a strong showing of racers during the first series race for the Mississippi Thunder Wings and Karts Summer Series, week two saw lower turnouts for all classes, but limited numbers did not mean limited excitement as intense racing was the theme of the evening.

Round 2 of the the MTS 2020 MADDOG $ERIES presented by Advanced Media Solutions experienced it’s second “Clean Sweep” of the young series as the #526 of Zach Bailey captured both heat race wins, as well as the top step of the feature podium. “I’m always trying as hard as I can, and I’m always hoping for a win,” commented the younger Bailey in Victory Lane, “But never did I anticipate a ‘clean sweep’ of the evening’s racing! Definitely a highlight for me!”

After two hard fought battles through the heats, the #90 of Dan Bailey maintained consistency by taking the middle step of the podium for the feature, with the #756 of Matt Johnson rounding out the top three.

Rivalries were high going into the feature, after Zach Bailey was able to steal the win of the final heat away from Dan Bailey by a mere gap of 0.039 seconds, with all racers hoping for another 12 laps of back-and-forth, side-by-side racing. “I’ve enjoyed many races but I don’t know if I’ve ever had a finish at the line that was that close,” smiled Dan Bailey, “I was trying every trick I could think of running the extreme high groove, but Zach was just strong enough lap after lap to beat me to the line.”

As the green flag flew for the feature, Johnson was first off the line, but after a hard fought battle to the first turn, it was Zach Bailey coming out of turn two with the “holeshot”, with Dan Bailey following behind by less than one cycle length.

The first seven laps of the feature saw both Baileys side-by-side and swapping lines from the lower inside groove, through the two middle grooves and all the way up in the top groove; but each lap it was Zach Bailey continuing to cross the Start/Finish line first and being scored as the leader.

It was not until lap eight when Dan Bailey was able to capitalize on a run in the extreme inside low groove through turns one and two, producing the evening’s “Fast Lap Bonus”, to take the lead. The lead would be cut short though, as Zach Bailey was able to battle back in three and four to regain the lead.

Lines were swapped going into the second-to-last lap, with Dan Bailey flying through the high line retaking the lead on the back straight. Once again, however, Zach Bailey was able to regain the lead coming to the white flag, and maintained the lead through the final lap.

The MTS 2020 MADDOG $ERIES presented by Advanced Media Solutions returns to the MTS LIGHTNIGHT SPEEDWAY for Round #3 of the 8 race series on Saturday June 13th followed by Round #4 on Saturday June 27th before heading to The FLYING DUTCHMEN’S MOTORCYCLE CLUB 3/8-Mile Oval for District 23 action on June 20th & 21st!
