Peoria, AZ — (March 12, 2016) — Claiming his second win in as many races with the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region in 2016, Washington’s Logan Forler held off hard charging Dusty Zomer at the Canyon Speedway Park in Peoria, Ariz.

Topping a roster of 24 drivers at Canyon Speedway Park, Forler led flag-to-flag in the Steve Forler Trucking No. 2L for his seventh career win with the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region. Coming from 11th to second, Zomer, in the Buffalo Wild Wings No. 82, was joined by Arizona’s J.T. Imperial on the podium who fought his way up from seventh.

Clawing from 16th, New Mexico’s Wes Wofford was the night’s SpeedMart, Inc. Hard Charger with a fourth place run. Bolting wings on his normally wingless No. 51 machine, Arizona’s R.J. Johnson completed the top five from 13th.

After having trouble on the start, Rick Ziehl rebounded to sixth with Lance Norick from 19th to seventh. Ryan Linder finished eighth with Bob Ream, Jr. ninth. Jesse Baker from 18th completed the top-ten.

The night’s four non-transfer drivers in the B-Feature each got a $25 bonus thanks to Beaver Stripes.

Up next for the Carlyle Tools ASCS Southwest Region is the Arizona Speedway in Queen Creek, Ariz. on Saturday, March 19. This is the season’s first trip to the Arizona Speedway. More information can be found at
