DILLON, S.C. – Dillon Motor Speedway hosted the seventh annual New Year’s BASH on Saturday, January 14, 2017.
The speedway hosted the Street Stocks, Chargers, Pro 4 Cylinders and the Bangers during the prestigious weekend. More than 100 race cars entered the gates and hit the track. There were so many cars in the infield that teams had to set up shop in the parking lot.
Chris Doulton won the $500 to win B-Main to kick-off the afternoon. The victory was Doulton’s first win at Dillon Motor Speedway. In the 107-lap Street Stock A-Main, it was Gary Ledbetter Jr. holding off 2015 winner Ricky Locklair Jr. and Chuck Barnes, to capture the trophy and the $2,000 purse.
