January 22nd, 2012 – Sunday afternoon was a crowning achievement in the young, Super Late Model career of Morgan Bagley as he raced his way to the
$10,000 win in the Bill Cheesebourg Memorial at USA Raceway (Tucson, Arizona). The big paying event served as the final round of the 6th Annual Wild West Shootout, and after winning his heat race, Bagley locked into the redraw for the feature, where he received the outside, front row starting spot for the feature, alongside pole-sitter, Billy Moyer Jr.
As the race went green Bagley shot to the lead before Moyer Jr. took over the lead a couple of laps later. Morgan would storm back to the lead on the tenth lap and would hold the spot until lap 19 when Billy Moyer raced past for the top spot. Bagley would maintain the second spot until mechanical issues ended Moyer’s run on lap 30, allowing Morgan to re-inherit the lead.
He would never give up the lead again as he led the final ten laps to claim the richest payday of his career. Morgan was followed across the finish line by Tim McCreadie, John Anderson, Billy Moyer Jr., and Jimmy Mars. Full results are available at www.USARaceway.net.
