Conservation Pays Off with Late Model Victory at Myrtle Beach
MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -– Lee Pulliam passed Brian Vause in the closing laps to win the 2nd Annual IceBreaker at Myrtle Beach Speedway on Saturday afternoon.
Pulliam, who had been fast all weekend, kicked off the afternoon by sitting on the pole for the 125-lap race. Once the green flag dropped, Chad McCumbee, who started second, took the lead away from Pulliam. Early on, Pulliam began to save his tires, and as a result, he fell outside of the top-five.

I lost the Myrtle Beach 400 with 15 to go.
