TULSA, Okla. (August 6, 2004) -- For the second month in a row, Gary Wright captured the Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores Driver of the Month Award for July on the ASCS National Tour, topping Travis Rilat and Zach Chappell for the honors.

After Rilat captured the May award for the O'Reilly ASCS National Tour presented by Love's Travel Stops & Country Stores and Classic Trailers, Wright has swept the award in the months of June and July.

Wright edged Rilat by just four points in June, with Chappell just two more points back. Wright topped Rilat by 30 markers in July, with Chappell 84 points off Wright's July pace.

Wright kicked off a busy month of July by collecting his fourth series victory of the season on July 1 at Tech Motor Speedway in Lubbock, TX.JWright was shut out of victory lane for nine consecutive events before topping the Friday, July 30, event at Oklahoma City's State Fair Speedway.

In twelve ASCS National events in July, Wright extended his season-long string of never finishing outside the top ten. Along with his two triumphs, Wright also claimed runner-up honors on five occasions.

After tonight's Knoxville 360 Nationals feature events, the O'Reilly ASCS National Tour gets a slight break before returning to action at Paris (TX) Motor Speedway on August 27 and Little Rock's I-30 Speedway on August 28.
