Kevin Keselowski ran away with the Sir Robert 60 at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park, leading every lap en route to his first Short Track Simulation Circuit (STSC) victory.
Keselowski started second in the 60-lap A-Main with Robert Phelps on the pole. However, Keselowski took the lead on the opening lap and never looked back.
Keselowski’s only true drama came on a late caution, which allowed second-place Kurt Gunnabee to restart near Keselowski with their gap erased. However, Keselowski pulled away for the win.
Gunnabee moved into the STSC points lead with a second-place finish, jumping over Luis Cabrera Perez and Jack Stevens in the championship chase. Perez failed to make the A-Main after qualifying last out of 47 cars, while Stevens finished 15th after racing his way in from the B-Main.
Joe Trickle moved into third in points with a third-place finish, while Adderall Allmendinger and Danny Vandoorne rounded out the top five. Vandoorne in particular impressed, as he was the eighth-place finisher in the B-Main, taking the final transfer spot. Despite starting shotgun on the field and only getting one caution to help bunch up the field and close the gap to the front, Vandoorne charged from 28th to fifth.
Next Race: With one-third of the schedule behind us, round six of the 15-race schedule is at Slinger Speedway for the SCOR Mid-Season Classic 100 powered by SHL. Thunderdomes sold separately.
