Georgia (September 30, 2006) - Senoia, GA's Bubba
Pollard started on the pole Saturday night at Peach State
Speedway and led all 100 laps of the Georgia Control Center 100.
The Georgia Asphalt Series drivers were making their next-to-last
race of the 2006 season. Kevin Perry, of Jefferson, earned
the Atlanta Freightliner Fast Qualifier Award but rolled a
"2" and started on the outside of Pollard.
Pollard's strongest duel of the night came from eventual second
place finisher Russell Fleeman (Dacula, GA) who
pressured Pollard over the last 20 laps but fell short by two car
lengths at the finish. Canton's Matt Hawkins made
an impressive run to finish third. Hawkins started fifteenth
on the grid. David Elliott, from
Lawrenceville, finished the race in fourth and Dacula's Richie
Ethridge completed the top five.
The top 10 included, 1) Bubba Pollard, 2

enough to catapult Moore to his second GAS championship.
