Tullis charges late for Alabama 200 win at Montgomery

Christopher Tullis came from a lap down in the middle stages of Saturday night’s Pro Late Model feature at Alabama’s Montgomery Motor Speedway to score the win in the 57th annual Alabama 200.

The Dacula, Georgia racer regained his lap when he was in the “lucky dog” position when a caution flew with 22 laps to go in the 200 lap race.

Tullis then took advantage of newer tires and a late caution on lap 190 as he drove back through the field. He passed leader Chris Davidson with two laps to go, and went on to record the $8,000 victory.

Matt Craig had the fastest car all weekend long, qualifying on the pole and leading 118 of the first 121 laps of the race. Craig’s night ended early on a restart on lap 121 after Jordan McCallum slid up the racetrack on old tires, clipping Craig’s car.

Defending race winner Jake Garcia of Monroe, Georgia was also involved in the crash while holding the third position. Garcia started in 17th and had driven through the field to contend for the lead when the accident took place.

John Bolen finished in third position, with five-time Alabama 200 winner Augie Grill in fourth and Jett Noland in fifth.

Racing returns to Montgomery Motor Speedway with local division action on March 27. For more information, visit MontgomeryMotorSpeedway.org.
