Fredrick Moore Clinches Title
 

Jefferson, 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 )Russell Fleeman, 3)Matt Hawkins, 4)David Elliott, 5)Richie Ethridge, 6)Korey Ruble, 7)Joey Senter, 8)Ronnie Sanders, 9)Richard Johns and10)Greg Motes,

 

Fredrick Moore's eleventh place run was good enough to catapult Moore to his second GAS championship.  Moore also claimed the championship in 2004, the maiden season of the Georgial Asphalt Series.

 

The Series will return to Peach State Speedway again on Sunday, October 22nd for the annual World Crown.
