WHITE CITY, Ore. – Rico Abreu added another trophy to his growing trophy case Monday night by winning round two of ASCS Northwest Speedweek at Southern Oregon Speedway.

The start of the race was slowed after a multi-car pile-up on the first attempt to start the 30-lap event. The second attempt to start the feature was more successful as Abreu grabbed the lead. Once out front Abreu was untouchable, leading the entire distance as the feature went non-stop with only seven cars finishing on the lead lap.

“Wow, what a track,” Abreu said. “This is by far the best this place has ever been. I got thank Brian Crockett, he knows how to put a track together and this track was beautiful. I also got to thank Paul Silva, Trevor Canales, and my uncle Jimmy they all work so hard to make this thing happen and it feels so special to be standing up here.”

Sean Becker finished second, followed by Kyle Hirst, Jonathan Allard and Trey Starks.

The finish:

Rico Abreu, Sean Becker, Kyle Hirst, Jonathan Allard, Trey Starks, Andy Forsberg, Colin Baker, Bud Kaeding, Chase Johnson, Jared Ridge, J.J. Hickle, David Hibbard, Vern Wheeler Jr., David Hoiness, Shane Forte, Rob Held, Garen Linder, Kelly Miller, Mitchell Faccinto, Phil Dietz.
