Champion Oil, a recognized leader in racing and enthusiast lubricants, announced today that Trey Starks nearly captured the biggest win of his career on Monday during the Weikert Memorial at Port Royal Speedway.
Clinton, MO -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/01/2017 --The Champion Racing Oil sponsored driver led all but the final handful of laps at the half-mile oval, where he earned a career-best runner-up result during the prestigious event.
"I got a good start and the lead," he said. "We had a caution about halfway. We had a three-second lead and a handful of lapped cars between and both got erased after the caution came out. After restarting I was searching on the race track. It was really slick and wide. I was trying to gauge my speed off lapped car speed to see where the fast line was. I got caught racing with lapped cars."
Starks maintained the lead until Lucas Wolfe drove around him in traffic with only a few laps remaining. The second-place finish was Starks' fifth top five this season.
