Bubba Pollard made his return to Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida on Friday night with the Southern Super Series. The Senoia, Georgia driver was hoping to make it two-in-a-row at the Florida track after winning the SSS race in April, but came up just one position short after a valiant effort.
After earning the fast time award in qualifying and being part of the top-eight redraw, Pollard knew his car was fast and was determined to get his Anderson’s Maple Syrup No. 26 into Victory Lane.
He took the lead on a lap 44 restart before giving it back up two laps later when he entered tire conservation mode.
