Carroll Completes Victory Ride at Ace Speedway
By Adam Smith, Times-News, April 27, 2019
ALTAMAHAW – Justin Carroll had enough to gain the lead across the long haul, and then plenty left to sustain it on a shorter run to the checkered flag.
That added up to what felt like the contents of a complete victory Friday night for the Concord driver, who captured the 100-lap Late Models feature at Ace Speedway, after outdueling runner-up Ryan Millington on a decisive restart and pulling away to safety.
“It’s an absolutely great feeling to finally put everything together and have a solid race like that,” Carroll said. ” I thought Ryan might get us there on the restart.”
Statesville’s Millington, the 17-year-old who triumphed in Ace’s season-opening main event, used the outside line and nosed his No. 15 car ahead of Carroll’s No. 57 on a double-file restart with 21 laps remaining, before Carroll reclaimed the lead and began to assert control.
