Trimble Completes Tyler County Sweep as Ferguson Lifts Belt Again

Brent Trimble was able to hold off a hard charging Carson Ferguson in the closing laps to claim back to back FASTRAK Racing Series powered by Chevrolet Performance wins at "America's Baddest Bullring". Ferguson slid past Trimble in turn four coming to two laps to go of the "Brown Jug 30". However, Trimble executed a text book crossover to hold on the the lead.

 

"I call that racing," said Trimble. "He gave me room, everyone should race like that. We just wanted to have a good weekend, they are on top of their game here and we did it again twice."

 

After his win at Princeton Speedway, and a second place finish in the finale, Ferguson overcame a 15th place finish on Saturday to defend his East Coast Rumble Championship. Ferguson also leads the FASTRAK Racing Series standings, chasing the $10,000 to win Championship.

 

"We were going for the win and let this play out," said Ferguson.  "I apologize getting into the 99 [of Patrick Solari], I didn't mean to get into him.  I gave the race away there.  I made a mistake and it cost us but this is a nice way to close the weekend."

 

Michael Durisky, Logan Roberson, and Donnie Dotson rounded out the top five.
