Howard Beats Two Of The Best At Montgomery
June 17, 2019 — Show Me the Money Series Pro Late Models invaded Montgomery Speedway Saturday night for the Mid-Summer Clash 100, the second half of their weekend doubleheader with Five Flags Speedway. After a late-race restart it was young Colby Howard driving the Anthony Campi Racing No. 81 into victory lane ahead of veterans Bubba Pollard and Augie Grill.
“It’s something I’m speechless about,” Howard told Speed51. “I really don’t know what to say about it. I think that’s something everybody wants to do in their career. Especially for me coming up and this is only my fifth Pro Late Model start. To beat Bubba Pollard like that and outdoing him on the restart was pretty amazing.”
To set himself up for the win, Howard had to overcome a late-race incident involving Casey Roderick and Connor Okrzesik, which at one point had Howard’s car parked up against the turn one fence.
“I don’t know, we just went three wide and started spinning,” Howard stated. “I thought the damage was a lot more. I feel like I hit Connor a lot more than what we all thought we did, but we backed it down pit road and we made a few adjustments and I don’t know how they did it but they did it right and made it a rocket.”
