FOREST, Ohio (June 18, 2020) – After getting involved in a tangle during action at Paragon Speedway one night prior, Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports put together a sound performance during non-wing sprint car competition at Gas City I-69 Speedway in Gas City, Indiana, on Wednesday, June 17, and earned a hard-fought sixth-place finish after starting in the exact same position.
With 40 cars making the call, Westfall kicked-off the evening at the high-paced bullring with a second-place finish during his respective heat race. The runner-up performance eventually translated into Westfall’s aforementioned third-row starting spot.
“It feels good to put together a solid night. This team never gives up, even after getting tore up. I’m lucky to be driving for someone with so much passion,” Matt Westfall said, driver of the Ray Marshall-owned/Ray Marshall Motorsports/Buckeye Machine Fabricators, Inc./Hempy Water/DPI Ink/No. 33M sprint car. “We still have a long week ahead of us. This works out great because it allows us to make up for some starts we missed at the beginning of the season. Hopefully we can work our way up a little higher in the running order and get a win.”
Coinciding with USAC Indiana Midget Week, Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will race the next four nights in a row beginning with a doubleheader at Lincoln Park Speedway in Putnamville, Indiana, on Thursday and Friday, June 18-19. The weekend will cap with appearances at Lawrenceburg Speedway and Kokomo Speedway on Saturday and Sunday, June 20-21, respectively. All events are open with no ties to any sanction.
With that said, Matt Westfall and Ray Marshall Motorsports will resume USAC National Sprint Car action with a visit to Plymouth Speedway in Plymouth, Indiana, on Friday, June 26.
