Memphis makes three straight wins for Gustin

MEMPHIS, Mo. – The Scotland County Speedway played host to the USMTS Casey’s General Stores National Tour Saturday night for the 8th Annual Mid-America Nationals. Although it was the 21st event staged at the facility, it was the first time since 2007 that the mud-slinging USMTS Modifieds waged battle at the Memphis, Mo., speedplant

The 24-car WIX Filters “A” Main saw traveling teammates Rodney Sanders of Happy, Texas, and Johnny Scott of Las Cruces, N.M., on the front row with Scott getting the jump at the drop of the green flag to lead the first lap.

Scott’s reign was short-lived, however, as fellow DandyLand Farms Rookie of the Year contender Ryan Peckham of Corning, Iowa, muscled his way into the lead on lap 3.

Four laps later, nine-time USMTS National Champion Kelly Shryock of Fertile, Iowa, grabbed the top spot with Marshalltown, Iowa’s Ryan Gustin and Al Hejna of Clear Lake, Iowa, giving chase.

With five career wins here, Shryock has more wins than any other USMTS driver at the Scotland County Speedway. Second on the list with four victories is Hejna, whose win at the 3/8-mile semi-banked clay oval on Aug. 5, 2006, ended a record-setting 11-race win streak for Shryock.

But that was then, and right now the hottest Modified driver on dirt is Gustin.

The 19-year-old worked his way past Shryock on lap 10, then set sail and paced the final 25 circuits to record his third straight USMTS Casey’s General Stores National Tour triumph and 14th of his short career.

The win was worth $2,000 to Gustin and his third triumph in four starts in the tough Farm Boy BBQ Central States Region presented by Arnold Motor Supply.

Hejna settled for the runner-up paycheck with Shryock garnering a third-place showing. Webster, Iowa’s Colt Mather was fourth and Sanders held on for fifth.

Former track champion Michael Long was sixth, Zack VanderBeek was seventh, Peckham recorded his career-best USMTS finish in eighth, Corey Dripps earned was the race’s hard charger coming from 19th to 9th at the checkered flags and rookie Nick Deal rounded out the top-10 for his best result in USMTS competition.
