"13 Carolina Clash Super Late
Model Series Champion Dennis Franklin"
Dennis Franklin Leads
Flag-To-Flag For Lancaster Speedway Win
Franklin goes two-for-two in four days with the Carolina
Clash as he holds off Casey Roberts charge to capture
Lancaster checkered and outlasted Johnny Pursley and
Jonathan Davenport to capture the 42nd Annual Shrine 100.
He is now the points leader after the two events.
Franklin took the fastest qualifier time at Lancaster
during the preliminaries with a speed of 18.564 seconds
around the 60 year old half-mile speedplant in Lancaster
County, SC. One of the few remaining half-mile super
stretch dirt speedways in the Southeast, Franklin made it
known that Lancaster is among his favorite racetracks. In
front of a massive audience, the packed house at Lancaster
was treated to some terrific speeds and close quarters
racing throughout the field, but Rambo was seldom
challenged, although Casey Roberts did make it close at
times - so close that his qualifying time was 18.569 - off
by a mere 0.005 seconds.

Kennie Compton leads championship contenders to Lancaster
Speedway this Saturday Night.
August 13, 2014
Dennis Franklin inherited the race lead on lap 23 and sped
away over the final 7 laps. Jonathan Davenport suffered a
right rear flat tire while leading the 42 Annual Gaston
County Carolina Speedway Shrine Race.
Davenport started on the front row and had to hold off
Franklin while racing in traffic early in the event. JD
raced his way to a comfortable lead in the field that
experienced much attrition due to mechanical failures.
Many of the top 10 cars fell out of the race at or before
the halfway flags were thrown. The most serious accident
of the event occurred when Anthony Sanders, who was coming
off of a tire change from a flat while running fourth.
