EVANS, Ga. – Piloting her LauriesFund.org No. 23 Richard Childress Racing Crate Late Model, Ahnna Parkhurst raced to her first win of the season on Saturday night at Boyd’s Speedway (Ringgold, Ga.).
“This field was stacked; 15 of these drivers have won a feature this season,” exclaimed Parkhurst. “We got in about 15 laps of practice on Friday and the car was fast. We were the only car below 14.4 seconds in qualifying.”
“We survived eight restarts to get this win. The car and crew were awesome,” Parkhurst added. “I’d like to thank all my sponsors and the people that allow me to chase my dream.”
Parkhurst laid down the fastest lap overall in a field of 38 entries, positioning her on the pole for the main event. Leading flag-to-flag, Ahnna survived the caution-plagued feature to capture the $1,200 payday.
Trailing Parkhurst to the finish line was Ethan Hunter, Sam Seawright, Chip Brindle, and Trevor Sise.
In the Super Late Model ranks, Parkhurst timed in 15th fastest overall in qualifying before scoring a second-place in her heat race behind Jordan Rodabaugh. Earning the 11th-starting position for the $3,500-to-win A-Main, Ahnna faded early in the race before battling back to finish 11th.
