Kicking off the 2020 season with the San Tan Ford ASCS Desert Sprint Cars the way he ended it, Stevie Sussex wheeled the ABC Body Shop No. 12 to Victory Lane at Central Arizona Speedway on Saturday night for his second career victory with the Arizona based wingless series.

Working through several cautions and red flags, Sussex worked from the third starting spot to ultimately claim victory in the season-opening event.

Chased to the line by Pete Yerkovich, the Phoenix, Ariz. shoe advanced to the runner-up spot after starting 14th. Sterling Cling from ninth made up the night’s podium. Ryan Murphy made up four positions with Jonas Reynolds completing the top five. Danny Mathus in sixth had 17th starting Rick Shuman in tow. Randy Nelson, Ryan Oerter, and Josh Bobinski complete the top ten.

The next round of competition for the San Tan Ford ASCS Desert Sprint Cars is Saturday, February 29 at USA Raceway in Tucson, Ariz.
