The Main Event Racing Series (MERS) Super Late Models made their only appearance of the 2015 season at Lorain County Speedway on Saturday, July 18, 2015 for the Central Transport 75 lap feature. In MERS qualifying, it was Jeff Ganus topping the field with a time of 13.717. The MERS Central Transport 75 lap feature race closed out the evenings racing program.
The front row of Todd Currier and Billy Roberts took the green flag only to have the initial start waved off. It was Currier taking the lead followed by Josh Way who started third. Following Way would be Roberts, Bud Perry and Harold Fair Jr., the 2014 MERS champion. Currier would open up a half straightaway lead before the race had reached double digits. That lead would be erased on lap thirteen when Dave Stenhouwer spun into the infield.
Currier led the restart followed by Jimmy Carter, Perry, Ganus and Fair Jr. Once again, Currier would open up a commanding lead. Ganus would advance to second position with twenty eight laps scored. The caution flag was out on lap thirty four when Emerson Huffman spun in turn two. Currier led the restart but would be passed by Ganus with thirty four laps in. The top five would be Ganus, Currier, Carter, Fair Jr. and Way.
Ganus would have his pace slowed by numerous caution flags as the race went on. Ganus would have clear sailing for the last twenty laps enabling him to open up a half straightaway lead over Jimmy Carter. Ganus took the checkered flag, making it two MERS feature wins at Lorain County Speedway in a row, as he also won last years event.
