Close on numerous occasions, Martin Edwards finally had his night in Victory Lane with the American Sprint Car Series; winning for the first time with the Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region at Texana Raceway.

Trailing until the final laps, the cards turned Edwards’ way as Channin Tankersley, and Wayne Johnson came to a stop. Positioning Martin to the front of the pack for the restart, the Mesquite, Texas racer staved off Robbie Price for the triumph with Tucker Doughty coming from seventh to finish third. Channin Tankersley and Wayne Johnson ended up completing the top five.

Dale Wester sixth had Tommy Hall in tow. Willie Reed, John Sweeney, and Cody Stacy made up the top ten.

The Griffith Truck and Equipment ASCS Gulf South Region hits the track again on Saturday, April 20 at Thunder Valley Speedway in Glenmora, La.
