Stasa Rules Lone Star Region


LUBBOCK, Texas — For the second race in a row with the Smiley’s Racing Products Lone Star Region, Patrick Stasa claimed the winner’s check, leading start to finish at the Lubbock Speedway for a $2,000 score.

After an opening red lap for Jake Martens, the restart saw Stasa race ahead of Blake Hahn.

Working into traffic on lap eight, Stasa and Hahn’s race nearly ended after contact with Stasa and John James send the No. 4j spinning, collecting Hahn who kept the car from stalling; holding his runner-up spot on the restart.

The red waved again on lp 12 for Josh Baughman who came together with Kolt Walker, then on lap 18 for the No. 51 of Matt Ward after contact with Shawn Petersen. All drivers involved were okay, Petersen and Walker continued.

The final restart was all tire smoke as the track was sticky with rubber around the bottom. Stasa went unchallenged in the final sprint. Blake Hahn was second with a flat Right Rear, followed by Johnny Herrera, John Carney II and Harli White making up the top five.

Patrick Stasa, Blake Hahn, Johnny Herrera, John Carney II, Harli White, John James, John Kelly, Brandon Black, Scott Pace, Shawn Petersen, Cory Riley, Kolt Walker, Brandon Williams, James Mosher, Matt Ward, Josh Baughman, Gary Floyd, Preston Peebles II, Seth Bergman, Jake Martens, Shane Redline, Dustin McCarty.
