BEAUMONT, Texas — Johnny Herrera picked up his first victory of the season in Friday night’s ASCS Griffith Truck and Equipment Gulf South Region feature at Golden Triangle Raceway Park.
Calling back the initial start as the No. 52 of Roger Oakes ended his night upside down; the second attempt would end with another red flag as polesitter Tommy Bryant went upside down. The third attempt yielded no charm as Brandi Jass punted an infield tire onto the track, ending the night of the No. 24 with a broken wheel.
It wasn’t until the fourth attempt that the green lights stayed on around the Golden Triangle Raceway Park as Herrera, who was slated to start fourth, found himself on the front row.
In prime position, the Albuquerque native bolted into the race lead, keeping pace over the No. 87 of Aaron Reutzel who chased the Print Place No. 45x across the stripe. Ray Allen Kulhanek came from sixth to the final podium step.
Winning the B main, Logan Forler dashed from 15 to fourth with Tony Bruce Jr. completing the top five from 12th
