Stephen Pollard III has earned every single win

Post by FUEL on February 24th 2017, 8:33 pm

Stephen Pollard III is one of 26 drivers with 5 or more wins in the Sony Cup Series... That is a lot of wins to gather in a single career but what's more surprising is a guy like Stephen Pollard III being on this list. From Season 5-8 Pollard III drove for his own race team, with very little to any sponsorship. Stephen Pollard III will tell you, his career really shined when you eliminated half the field and when the series raced 25 cars on the track per race. Pollard III in an underfunded car CARRIED his car to victory lane in Season 6 not once but TWICE and was leading the points standings in Washington D.C.


During driver intros at DC everyone was chanting "Pollard! Pollard! Pollard!" We had never seen such a rising superstar with little to nothing. A crew of 6 guys at the races, the crew chief being the tire changer, Pollard Racing back in the day was a little team that wanted to just be apart of the big stage of racing in the SCS. Sadly, Stephen Pollard III crashed out of the Season Finale and tied with Luke Martin for 2nd in the points and lost by 1 point. What could of been the upset of the century with Pollard Racing winning the title, Stephen Pollard III continued on with NO sponsorship for 2 more seasons and was able to gather a 3rd in the Season 7 Daytona 500 and 2 more wins!


At this time, people were really interested in Stephen Pollard III and what he could do. Nick Mace called him up and asked if he wanted to drive his #5 car. Seems like an offer you just can't resist right? Stephen Pollard III DENIED Mace Enterprises' offer of racing for them and went to race for other underfunded teams that struggled to finish in the top half of the field. Stephen Pollard III struggled to find sponsors after Season 9 and hurt his chances of finding rides however every chance Pollard got to drive he drove for the team that needed the most help.


After Season 9, Pollard shut down his race team and raced for other smaller teams but still was able to manage another victory to add his name to the list of drivers who has marked their name in the 5 or more wins bracket. The fact that Stephen Pollard III has had multiple offers to drive for big name teams and he has denied them all to race for the smaller teams and still get the job done is amazing. Can you imagine if Stephen Pollard III had a top ride in this series what kind of driver he would be to the sport? Pollard III (Season 6 Runner-Up and 5-Time Winner) could have won championships and +10, +15 or even +20 wins in his career.


Stephen Pollard III has wins in the series and is on the list as one of the best in the series to have that many wins however the teams he was paired up with to win those races is just an incredible stat by itself.

Stephen Pollard III also carried ARC Racing to 2 top 10s last year, and 10 top 20s. ARC Racing this year without him sits 43rd and 50th in the points and didn't resign him. Stephen Pollard III racing this year nearly won his duel qualifying race at Daytona earlier this year driving for his start up team named "Pollard Racing" once again. However, Stephen Pollard III wants to be racing and nobody wanted to sponsor him or hire him so Pollard is doing it the hard way. Right now, Pollard is struggling to keep his team alive in the series and not go bankrupt.


Stephen Pollard III told us, "We can't offered to DNQ from a lot of these races. I have to pay back people for tires, gas and everything on the car. My crew is all voluntary we don't have much but that's okay we've showed out before with little to nothing before in the past. Let's just hope we can make it through the early part of this year and make some head way."
