Congratulations to Ryan Gustin for another win at Fayette County Speedway on Hypercoils coil-over springs!
Gustin goes to West Union winners circle
On a special Friday night program where drivers, crews, fans and officials paid tribute to Karsyn’s Krusaders founder Jessica Miller and not only came to race, but to also raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research, Ryan Gustin and the rest of the Best of the Best gave the fans at Fayette County Speedway a show to remember.
Gustin, who started ninth on the grid, churned the clay around the high side of the West Union, Iowa, oval and tracked down leader Jake Timm by the halfway point of the race.
Once out front, Gustin led the rest of the way and held off a furious late-race charge by Lucas Schott to take the win and another $4,500 payday.
Polesitter Josh Angst took the lead initially, and set a strong pace for the first 14 laps before Timm used lapped traffic to snag the top spot on lap 15.
Meanwhile, Gustin was virtually alone on the high side which kept his path clear while many others struggled with back-markers looking to share the same line down low.
Schott eventually found the high line to his liking too, and reeled in Gustin late in the race but could only get beside—but not in front of—Gustin and had to settle for the runner-up paycheck.
