Beating a stout field of Southern Super Series competitors to the punch, Bubba Pollard got to wear the boxing gloves in victory lane Saturday night at Montgomery Motor Speedway (AL) after winning the “Rumble by the River 125” event.

Executing his signature long-run strategy, Pollard waited for the right moment to show his cards, passing on the outside groove late in the race and checking out as soon as he secured the lead.

“I figured you wear a pair of boxing gloves, so you might as well put it on them,” Pollard joked.  “I just didn’t want to show it too soon.  Our race car was good and you have to be able to turn in the center to run that outside and that’s what we were able to do.”

The win is Pollard’s second for the series just in the last month and adds to the veteran’s string of Late Model successes since the restart of the COVID-condensed 2020 season.

“We’ve hit a pretty good run here the last couple of weeks and have really been working hard all year,” Pollard said.  “It’s paid off.  These races are tough to win nowadays.  There’s so many great cars, it makes you work hard.  It’s special for us and our little group.  They’re a great team.”
