Wayne Johnson Takes HOT ASCS Lone Star Win!

Lonnie Wheatley, WACO, Texas (April 16, 2010) – Oklahoma City native Wayne Johnson added another notch to the victory column by racing to victory lane in Friday night’s 25-lap American Sprint Car Series Lone Star Region main event at Heart O’ Texas Speedway.

Taking the wheel of a second Brian Parker No. 9 entry, Johnson led all the way aboard the H&H Racing-powered Champion Dent Repair Triple-X for his 33rd career overall ASCS feature win.

Johnson took the checkered flag ahead of 2009 ASCS Lone Star points runner-up Brad Welborn, with reigning champion and current points leader Kevin Ramey taking the show position.

Kolt Walker crossed the stripe fourth, with Preston Peebles II rounding out the top five.

Claud Estes was sixth, with Justin Melton, Justin Spoerl, Michael Lang and Brandon Corn completing the top ten.

Peebles, Eric Baldaccini and Brian McClelland topped heat race action for Friday night’s 25-car field. Baldaccini held down the third position in the main event until flipping with 16 laps in the books. Baldaccini was the second car to turn over in the main, as Andrew Marshala got upside down a handful of laps earlier.

The ASCS Lone Star Region moves on to Cowtown Speedway in Kennedale, TX, on Saturday night, with racing action set to go green at 7:00 p.m.
