Hall Grips Heart O' Texas for First ASCS Gulf South Win!
WACO, Texas (May 25, 2008) -- Ryan Hall captured his first career American Sprint Car Series feature win by topping Sunday night's 25-lap Fifth Annual Gordon Woolley Classic featuring the ASCS Gulf South Region at Heart O' Texas Speedway.
Drawing the front row outside starting position for the feature, Hall gunned into the lead at the outset and led the way throughout to post the victory.
Hall was chased to the line by Greg Rilat, who became the first driver in ASCS history to reach the century mark in Regional feature starts with his 100th career ASCS Gulf South feature run.
Oklahoma teen Koby Barksdale pressured Rilat throughout before settling for the show position, while Claud Estes outlasted Skip Wilson for fourth.
Wilson rounded out the top five, with Johnny Miller in sixth. Kevin Ramey picked up Hard Charger honors by racing from 17th to seventh, with current Gulf South points leader Chris Sweeney, defending champion Brandon Berryman and rookie shoe Bean Elliott completing the top ten.
Barksdale, Wilson, Channin Tankersley and Rilat topped heat race action for the 29-car field, with Tommy Bryant winning the "B" Main
