Brief History:

Ross started racing in the Four Cylinder division in 2005 before moving up to the Crate Late Model class in 2007. He went on to register his first win in 2007 in the Crate Late Model division. In 2009 car owner, Ronnie McCarter, bought a Limited Late Model motor, and Ross split time between it and the Crate Late Model. The team decided to purchase a Super Late Model motor at the end of 2009 and raced it in a select few events at the end of the 2009 season. Ross made the move to Super Late Models full-time in 2010, while still competing occasionally in the Crate class. Since the 2010 season Bailes has continued to split time between the two classes, while enjoying considerable success.

Competing in a total of 37 events during the 2015 season, Ross Bailes picked up nine total feature wins with five coming in his Crate Late Model, one in his Limited Late Model and three in his Super Late Model. With the weather affecting nine of his scheduled dates, Bailes reeled in28 Top 10 finishes and 24 Top 5 outings. He also clinched his second straight FUEL points title along with a eleventh place finish in the Carolina Clash points standings.

Traveling to 35 events during the 2016 season, Ross Bailes reeled in eight feature wins with four in his Super and four in his Crate Late Model. Losing only two of his scheduled dates to bad weather, Bailes posted 28 Top 10 finishes and 19 Top 5 outings. He also wrapped up the season in second in the Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series point standings behind Johnny Pursley.
