ROCK SPRINGS, Wyo. – Making his return to victory lane almost two years to the day from his last win with the Brodix ASCS Frontier Region, Montana’s Jeremy McCune parked the No. 0j on the frontstretch at Sweetwater Speedway on Friday night.
Though it was his third ASCS regional victory, and second with the Brodix ASCS Frontier Region, most of McCune’s race was spent chasing the top spot.
Battling in the closing laps with Zac Taylor and Travis Reber for several laps, the trio raced into traffic with Reber trying for the lead. However, his slide was too short to clear the lapped car and Reber collected Taylor in the process, while McCune was able to keep going.
Patient around the bottom, McCune was able to hold off the last lap charge of Robert DeHaan through the final two turns.
Chauncy Filler worked to the final podium step from 10th, with Shad Petersen and 12th-starting Mindy McCune completing the top five.
Randy Dolberg made it to sixth from 11th, while Willie Hernandez charged from 15th to seventh. Damon McCune grabbed eighth, with Reber coming back to finish ninth after a visit to the work area. Mike Manwill completed the top 10.
