Bryan Hulbert – EDNA, Texas (April 25, 2022) Taking the show on the road, so to speak, the ASCS Elite Non-Wing Series presented by Abilene Powder Coating will venture into south Texas to take on Texana Raceway Park (Edna, Texas) on Friday, April 29, and South Texas Race Ranch (Corpus Christi, Texas) on Saturday, April 30.
A pair of semi-banked short tracks, the last ASCS events at either venue were of the winged variety. Martin Edwards scored the win with the former ASCS Gulf South Region at Texana Raceway Park in 2019. Formerly South Texas Speedway, the tour last raced at the Corpus Christi oval in 2018. Caleb Martin grabbed the win.
The current point standings find Justin Zimmerman leading by 80 points going into this weekend. Paul White is the first one chasing, followed by Koby Simpson, Caden McCreary, and Mason Smith to make up the top five in driver standings.
Rounds five and six on the season, the opening four stops of 2022, have yielded just as many winners. Opening the season with the Wingless Short Track Nationals at I-30 Speedway, Justin Zimmerman and Cody Gardner split the weekend. Abilene Speedway at the start of April went to Dalton Stevens, while Jason Howell held on for victor this past Saturday in Kennedale, Texas.
