Patient Ramey Conquers Heart O’ Texas
WACO, Texas — Patience is a virtue, especially on slick race tracks and that is exactly what Kevin Ramey had to contend with on his way to victory at Waco’s Heart O’ Texas Speedway, going back to back in the Gordon Woolley Classic with the Griffith Truck and Equipment Gulf South Region.
The eighth different winner in 10 dates, Ramey held off Cole Wood for most of the beginning stages of the night’s 25 lap affair. Working amongst the back makers near the halfway point, the pair was joined by Channin Tankersley before the caution displayed for Evan Pardo.
Ramey bolted to a comfortable advantage with Wood in tow, before an engine failure sidelined the Elk Grove Ford No. 17w a mere two laps from the finish.
Putting the race for second between Tankersley and eighth starting Ray Allen Kulhanek, the No. 21t worked the outside of the No. 71 of Tankersley in the final turns, but lost the handle on the Miller RV Park No. 21; spinning to a stop as the field race by for the finish. Kulhanek would be credited 15h.
Tankersley raced on to the runner up finish with B-Main winner Tommy Bryant third from 15th. Brandon Berryman and Martin Edwards made up the top five.
