Wright Sneaks By For Victory
BRISTOL – Jake Wright earned his 3rd win of the season in the Premier Racing League Coastal Safety Auditors Grand National Series on Monday. Wright was not the early favorite though, starting 19th in a field of 26 drivers, but he took the lead when it counted and lead the final laps to claim victory.
Jeff Ward won the Savage Spinners Pole for the event and lead 54 laps, barely clipping Brian Yaczik for most laps lead by only 1 point. The race was dominated by these 2 drivers and Nick Kohan, who all spent their fair share of time at the front of the field.
Jeff Ward is still your leader in the Chase standings with only 4 events to go in the regular season, with 4. Jake moved himself into 2nd with his win on Monday night. Joe Hassert jumped Jeff Rhyne as the last transfer spot for the Chase as they continue their fierce battle for post season glory. Joe now sits only 5 points ahead of Rhyne as the series heads to Darlington Raceway on August 22nd.
