Ramaker Electric at Great Falls for ASCS Rocky Mountain Win
GREAT FALLS, Mont. (September 5, 2009) -- Joe Ramaker opened the American Sprint Car Series Rocky Mountain Region two-night stand at Electric City Speedway by topping Saturday night's 25-lap main event.
After overtaking series points leader Jake Ossenfort for the lead on the fifth round, Ramaker survived a late bid from Gary Taylor to secure his second series triumph of the season.
Following a pair of waved off starts, Ossenfort gunned into the lead from the pole position only to have third-starter Ramaker motor by on the fifth circuit.
Working forward from eighth, Taylor tried to slide past Ramaker for the top spot on the white flag lap. Taylor was unable to make the move aboard Nubby Peterson's No. 23 entry stick, getting upside down to bring out a red flag that set up a green-white-checkered dash to the stripe.
Ramaker held on over the final two laps to post the win, with Ossenfort settling for his third consecutive runner-up finish. Brent Kronfuss claimed the show position, with Casey Adams and Trevor Kirkland rounding out the top five.
Kelly Miller was sixth, with Phil Dietz, Jeremy McCune, Joe Perry and Paxton Lambrecht completing the top ten.
Miller, Ramaker and Kirkland topped heat race action for the 25-car field, with David Hoiness winning the 12-lap "B" Main after race-long leader Stuart Selby spun on the final lap.
