Lifts Lid to 2018 Campaign at Cochran!

racing season over the March 23-24 weekend in a pair of NeSmith
Chevrolet Dirt Late Model Series shootouts that made up the 'Cochran
Clash' at Cochran Motor Speedway in Cochran, Georgia. On Friday
night in the $2,000 to win weekend opener, Russell Brown, Jr.
laid down the fourth quickest time overall during qualifying to
earn the outside of the second row for the start of the A-Main.
Unfortunately, Russell's carburetor stuttered at the drop of the
green flag and he was hit from behind - ultimately giving his
#00 mount a flat left rear tire. The Valdosta, Georgia ace wound
up retiring early and was credited with a twenty-third place performance
in his season lid lifter.
A $4,000 top prize was then up for grabs for the
cars and stars of the NeSmith Series on Saturday evening at Cochran.
Russell qualified seventh fastest in his group during time trials
before finishing sixth in his heat race and seventh in his B-Main.
He unfortunately suffered another flat Hoosier tire during the
