“It’s gonna be all about tire management, that’s what it is every time you go to the beach,” said Fogleman. “The person who can get up off the corner the straightest and can keep the right rear on the car is going to win the race. I don’t think you want to lose a lap, but you want to get awfully close. Some people are going to go too hard too early and you’re going to have to let them go. If you chase the rabbit, you won’t be there at the end.”
Despite his experience racing at Myrtle Beach competing in cars he owned, Fogleman will be behind the wheel of Dicky Woodman’s potent Super Late Model once again. The two finished second together last year at Caraway Speedway and the Woodman Racing Team is coming off another strong run finishing third at Dillon Motor Speedway with Kevin Powell behind the wheel.
“Dicky’s car ran real good at Caraway and I had a really good time working with him and I just need to get caught up on some things at Bull City Race Cars,” said Fogleman. “Dicky wanted to run a few races and this was one of them and we’ll probably run a few more together this year. I just needed to look at the big picture and this will buy me some time to get some other things done.”
On the opposite end of the experience spectrum is young Georgia driver Spencer Davis. In just his second year racing Super Late Models, Davis had only seen Myrtle Beach Speedway once prior to testing there last Thursday. But despite his inexperience, Davis has quickly figured out what so many others have been talking about.
“I like the track, it’s a real big track and it’s definitely going to be about tire management. You can feel the tires constantly going away when you run around there,” said Davis. “The test went really good last week, I think we had some really fast times and hopefully will have a good chance at the win.”
