Kulhanek Motors to Another ASCS Gulf South Win at Motorama
BEAUMONT, Tex. (August 19, 2005) -- Current Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores American Sprint Car Series Gulf South Region point leader Ray Allen Kulhanek notched his fifth feature victory of the season by topping Friday night's 25-lap feature at Motorama Speedway.
Polesitter Chris Sweeney led the opening round, but it was third-starter Kulhanek racing past Ty Johnson and Sweeney to take command on the second round. Eleventh-starter Skip Wilson made a quick charge from eleventh to third by the third circuit, then advanced to second by the midway point.
There was no stopping Kulhanek however, as he steered Marvin Pearson's Wesmar-powered Horse Power Design No. 11 Maxim to the checkered flag with a seven car-length advantage over Wilson at the stripe.
Sweeney settled for the show position, with 18th-starter Jerry Bell and Johnson rounding out the top five. Completing the top ten were Scottie McDonald, Greg Rilat, Brandon Berryman, Brad Stokes and Richard Holt.
Darryl Wills, Charlie Brown, Holt and Kulhanek topped heat race action for the 28-car field, with Terry Monroe winning the "B" Main.
