GASTONIA, N.C. — Ricky Weeks outran 24 other drivers to claim the 11th annual Skyler Trull Memorial for the Carolina Clash Super Late Model Series Saturday evening at Carolina Speedway.

Ross Bailes started on the pole for the 40-lap feature and led much of the event before Weeks arrived on the scene late. With only four laps left Weeks made his move, blowing past Bailes on the outside of turn four to take the lead.

“The Trulls are great people and winning this race means a lot to me,” said Weeks. “It was a hard fought win tonight with such good competition here.”

Chris Ferguson came home second ahead of Bailes, Mike Gault and Luke Roffers.

The finish:

Ricky Weeks, Chris Ferguson, Ross Bailes, Mike Gault, Luke Roffers, Dan Breuer, Tim Allen, Dustin Mitchell, Chad Paxton, David Taylor, Dennis Franklin, Craig Shuffield, Peter Ivey, Doug Sanders, Kenny Compton, Mike Huey, Jay Sessoms, Scott Shirey, Johnny Stovall, Dean Bowen, Furman Parton, Chris Meadows, Jeff Smith, Brent Robinson.
