Rilat Makes ASCS Gulf South Fast Trax
CHATHAM, Lou. (September 4, 2005) - Travis Rilat completed a sweep of the weekend's Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores American Sprint Car Series Gulf South Region racing action by winning Sunday night's 25-lap feature at Fast Trax Speedway.
While Rilat gridded the feature outside the sixth row, it was his father, Greg Rilat, jumping into the early lead from the pole position. Greg Rilat checked out on the field in the early rounds, as Travis Rilat began making his way through traffic.
Travis climbed all the way up to fourth by the seventh lap, then took over second on the 14th round. Travis then reeled in his father and the pair diced for the lead for several rounds until Travis made a late move in lapped traffic to secure the win.
Travis Rilat took his third ASCS Gulf South win of the season aboard the F&J Construction/Haulmark Trailers No. 29 Maxim with an eight car-length edge over Greg Rilat, who settled for second. Gary Watson ran in the third position throughout, with Skip Wilson and Johnny Miller rounding out the top five.
