When Ryan Gustin won the USMTS feature Sunday night at the Creek County Speedway, it snapped a winless streak that lasted for more than a year.
He barely had time to let his engine cool down before scoring his next one Tuesday night at the Superbowl Speedway.
Just three of the eight previously scheduled USMTS shows at the 3/8-mile clay oval in Greenville, Texas, escaped Mother Nature’s wrath, and this year the competition was unable to evade ‘The Reaper.’
From the outside of the front row, Max Eddie Thomas did everything he needed to do in order to make the 20-minute drive from Quinlan to Greenville pay off with a $2,500 check.
He led the first 19 laps before Gustin shot past just before the halfway point.
From there, Gustin held off a late charge by tenth-starting Jake O’Neil, who followed Gustin to the checkered flag 48 hours earlier too.
It was Gustin’s 96th career USMTS victory.
