SWEET VICTORY!! Kirkland Wins 1st ASCS Feature at Belgrade
Late Race Pass Earns TK First Win of the Year!
Andrew Kunas / Bryan Hulbert - BELGRADE, Mont. (July 25, 2014) - A wild Friday night in Belgrade ended with Trever Kirkland in Victory Lane with a late race pass on Joe Ramaker at the Gallatin Speedway. For the former Montana sprint car champion under what was then the Big Sky Sprint Tour, it was his first victory in an ASCS sanctioned event. Still third in the point standings, Kirkland did see his gap between himself and points leader Kelly Miller shrink from 46 to 31 markers. On Lap 23, Kirkland was able to squeeze between Ramaker and the infield as they rolled through the second turn for the victory in the Kirkland Racing No. 37 Midway Performance-powerd Triple X.
"(Ramaker) just opened up the bottom. I was just able to get around Turn 2 better than he was, just rolling through it," said Kirkland, who earned his third straight podium finish in regular Frontier Region events. "It's nice to finally get one. We've been the fastest car all season I think. We just couldn't complete one of these. We finally got 'em. I gotta thank my crew as they've been awesome and they've worked real hard all season." Full Story and Results: Click here
