Inside Line Promotions – POCOLA, Okla. (Oct. 11, 2021) – Garet Williamson is 2-for-2 in his career on earning second-place finishes at Tri-State Speedway.
The Bryant Paver Motorsports driver hustled from 14th to second during the ASCS Sooner Region and ASCS Mid-South Region event last Saturday. The performance earned the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.
The night began with Williamson placing fifth in a heat race, placing him 14th in points to line up on the outside of the seventh row in the main event.
“The track was gut slick in the heat races,” he said. “I was on the bottom and spun the tires down the frontstretch. I think we were in sixth going into turn one. The outside lane just drove by everybody.
“I knew we’d be fast in the A Main though. We made some changes. The top got so treacherous. The curb was gnarly and that defined whether you’d be fast or not. There weren’t too many people up there. They’d enter off it or slide into it. Not too many people would commit to it and we did.”
Running on the ragged edge paid dividends as Williamson rallied into the runner-up position and had a pair of late restarts with the leader right in front of him.
“We had two restarts in the final few laps,” he said. “The first one we made a lap and the yellow came back out. The second one I could have thrown an absolute haymaker into turn one, but I didn’t want to push the issue. I was hoping he’d bobble a little bit. He bobbled once in turns three and four and I really made up some ground, but was just not close enough to throw a slider at the end.”
Williamson will take this weekend off before wrapping up the season Oct. 22-23 at I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Ark., during the 34th annual COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tires with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.
