Sim Marketing Solutions Super Series – Super Late Models – Race 7 – July 5, 2018 – Langley Speedway
Last week the Super Series returned to the Langley Speedway for the first time in over two years for the running of the Support Our Troops 150 presented by USO, and there were plenty of fireworks up front all race long.
Race Summary – The action at the front of the field was intense all night long, and it started with Tim Bills leading a majority of the first 50 laps before Daniel Williamson began his challenge. But while they battled, Camaron Hamilton was able to fight past both to take over the lead. A halfway caution set up a restart that allowed Jim Caudill Jr. and Jimmy Mullis to work their way into the top two. Mullis was able to take over the lead while the two made contact on lap 126, but Caudill was able to fight back. A final restart with a handful of laps to go saw Caudill get the jump on the outside, but Mullis was able to hang tough on the inside and would end up picking up the victory for the first time this season.
Race Winner – Jimmy Mullis – Qualified 2nd, started 8th (invert), 24 laps led
