Maier Masters ASCS Midwest Region at McCool Junction
McCOOL JUNCTION, Neb. (May 25, 2007) -- Garry Lee Maier added yet another American Sprint Car Series feature win to his resume by posting by an impressive victory in Friday night's 25-lap ASCS Midwest Region main event at Junction Motor Speedway.
The first ASCS National champion in 1992, Maier added his second ASCS Midwest Region feature victory to 37 National wins and several other Regional wins with a wire-to-wire drive aboard the Wesmar-powered Lubbock Wreck Service No. 11x Maxim.
Maier gunned into the lead at the outset, opening up a half straightaway lead in the opening three rounds. His pace was not deterred even when he hit lapped traffic after 14 laps, as he sliced through lapped traffic and ultimately took the checkered flag with a straightaway advantage over Brian Brown, who took the runner-up position from Derek Drown at the midway point.
With Brown, the winningest driver in ASCS Midwest Region history, taking second, Drown took show honors. Gregg Bakker crossed the stripe fifth, with Natalie Sather rounding out the top five.
Don Droud, Jr., moved atop the ASCS Midwest Region point standings with a sixth-place run, with Ryan Anderson, 2005 ASCS Midwest Region champion Billy Alley, J.D. Johnson and defending series champion Toby Chapman completing the top ten.
Anderson, Marc Robe, Brown and Maier topped heat race action for the 37-car field, with A.J. Selenke winning the first "B" Main before Chapman charged from the rear of the field to win the second "B" Main.
