Speedway 660 Release
(July 2, 2017) Greg Fahey dominated the Cummins 150 on Sunday afternoon, driving the McLaughlin Roof Trusses Toyota to victory lane. Fahey, the defending RE/MAX Group Four Realty Pro Stock champion, won the Parts for Trucks Pro Stock Tour race at his home track. Dylan Gosbee was second, while tour point leader Dylan Blenkhorn finished third.
“It was hot inside that race car and I am totally exhausted, but the crew gave me a great car today and to finally win a tour race in front of these Speedway 660 fans is awesome” said Fahey from the Riverview Ford Victory Lane. “This win is for Andy Fox, from McLaughlin Roof Trusses, because he’s the guy who has given me the opportunity to drive this car and I’m glad to go to victory lane in a big race for him.”
There were only five short cautions, including one for a brief shower that passed over the track during the race. Defending tour point champion Cole Butcher finished fourth, while Shawn Turple rounded out the top five. Gosbee, Butcher and Greg Proude won the Cummins 150 qualifying heat races.
“Greg was incredibly quick and proved that he is a great wheelman so congratulations to those guys for winning today” said Gosbee. “This is the toughest track on the tour, but I love coming over to 660 and even though we wanted a win we’re pretty happy to take second in the Cummins 150.”
