Sartain Breaks Through, Sanders Is Champ

CRANDALL, Texas — Jack Sartain survived a wild 35-lap main event Thursday to claim his first victory with the Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey’s as RPM Speedway kicked off the third annual Summit Southern Nationals. Gallardo assumed the lead with Sartain, Malchus, Jason Hughes and Cody Leonard giving chase. Sartain briefly inched ahead of Gallardo to lead lap 8 but the 2015 USRA Modified national champ sped back by Sartain to regain the spot with nine laps complete. Gallardo fought back to the inside as they raced out of turn three but Sartain shut the door when they reached the third turn. Leonard got around Gallardo the next lap and proceeded to reel in Sartain as the laps wound down. He was glued to Sartain’s bumper for several laps when Sartain’s IRP Race Car got upset in turn four coming to complete lap 33 of 35.
