HIGHLANDS, Texas (July 22, 2017) – Bringing his career win total to 26 with the Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region, Ray Allen Kulhanek parked it at Battleground Speedway for season win No. 4, and second in as many starts at the Highlands, Texas oval.

Trailing the first five laps, Kulhanek moved through the field with haste to take over the lead on Lap 6 after starting eighth. Taking over from Butch David, a DNF would eventually befall the Louisiana racer as fellow Louisianan Dustin Gates ended up second with Zane Lawrence third.

Jacob Lucas fourth was followed by Caleb Martin. Sixth went to Michael McNeil with Randy Allen, Brandie Jass, Steven Kirschner, Jr., and Jonnie Wasson in the top-ten.

Up next for the Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region is Heart O’ Texas Speedway in Waco on Friday, August 18 and South Texas Raceway in Corpus Christi on Saturday, August 19. The 2017 season finale is set to follow that at Battleground Speedway on Friday, September 2 and Saturday, September 3.
