It was checkers or wreckers for Chase Delrio Saturday night at Greenville Speedway.

Ryan Gustin captured his second King of America crown Saturday night at Humboldt (KS) Speedway.

He led the rest of the way to collect the $10,000 top prize. “They don’t get no better than a Hughes car, that’s for sure,” Gustin said of his No. 19r Hughes Racing Chassis. “They are the best there is, and I can’t thank Jason (Hughes), Steve (Karver, crew chief) and all the guys back at the shop enough. They’re the ones that make this thing happen.” Buck Monson Photo
