Gustin flawless in USMTS National Championship tilt at Fairmont

FAIRMONT, Minn. -- Defending USMTS National Champion Ryan Gustin of Marshalltown, Iowa, sailed to a $4,000 payday Thursday night as he led wire to wire to capture the main event at the Fairmont Raceway.

From the time his Gressel Racing team unloaded his Hughes Chassis from the hauler, Gustinís night went about as perfect as he could have asked for.

Coming from third to win Eibach Springs Heat Race #3, Gustin earned the most passing points which allowed him to draw first in the redraw among the top 8 qualifiers. ĎThe Reaperí drew the pole, and then went on to lead all 35 laps of the Swan Energy ďAĒ Main.

When the raceís first and only caution waved on lap 6, Gustinís lead was already half the length of a straight-away at the big half-mile oval.

Back under green, Gustin powered away again while Rodney Sanders blasted by Jason Hughes to take over second place. From there, the duo put distance between them and the rest of the pack but Sanders was never able to mount a serious challenge to Gustinís lead.

Meanwhile, Terry Phillips found his way into the top 5 from the 12th starting spot and got around Hughes with 10 laps to go. Phillips then slipped by Sanders in the final turn to garner the runner-up finish at the checkered flag with Hughes close behind in fourth and Mike Sorensen following in the fifth position.

Sixth through tenth were Zack VanderBeek, Stormy Scott, Ryan Ruter, Kelly Shryock and Clayton Wagamon.
