WACO, Texas (August 18, 2017) Three leaders later at the Heart O’ Texas Speedway, and the one on the point when the checkered flag dropped was Tommy Bryant, as the driver of the SawBlade.com No. 28 picked up his second victory of the 2017 season with the Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region.
Career win No. 13 for Bryant with the Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region, Friday’s A-Feature began from the fifth position as Ray Allen Kulhanek took off with the race lead. Collected by a lapped car with 14 laps complete, the race resumed with Caleb Martin at the front of the pack.
Working down to the closing laps, Martin would see his first win of the season ripped from his grasp as the right rear on his No. 51 expired on Lap 21 to leave Bryant the final five laps to get the job done.
Washington’s Seth Bergman crossed second with Dalton Stevens coming from eighth to grab the final podium step. Scottie McDonald fourth was trailed by Jacob Lucas to complete the top-five. Michelle Melton advanced six positions to sixth with Dustin Gates seventh. Moving forward 10 spots, Tyson Hall crossed ninth. Zane Lawrence finished 10th.
For Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region races next at South Texas Speedway in Corpus Christi, Texas on Saturday, August 19.
