MESQUITE, Texas (June 11, 2022) Adding a 16th win to his record with the ASCS Elite Non-Wing Series presented by Abilene Powder Coating, Justin Zimmerman captured Saturday’s $3,000 bounty at the Devil’s Bowl Speedway.

Rolling from sixth, Zimmerman moved to second on the start to chase Paul White. Caution with seven laps to run, the No. 1 worked the hub as White rolled the top. Closing rapidly, the move the lead came on Lap 9 through the first and second turns.

Bringing Jason Howell with him, the No. 44 followed in Zimmerman’s tire tracks. Never allowing more than a few car lengths, the final run to the finish saw tires smoking as Howell buried the throttle to the front stretch. There, but not able to advance, Zimmerman held on by 0.166-seconds. Jason Howell second was followed by Paul White. Fourth went to Caden McCreary, while the Avenger Chassis No. 5j of Jeremy Jones made up the top five.

The ASCS Elite Non-Wing Series presented by Abilene Powder Coating races again on Friday, June 24, at West Texas Raceway (Lubbock, Texas) and Route 66 Motor Speedway (Amarillo, Texas) on Saturday, June 25.
