Galusha Tames POWRi Micro League Field

CHARLESTON, Ill. – Frank Galusha, fresh off his solid runner up finish Friday night, dug a little deeper and found himself in victory lane to finish off the weekend at Charleston Speedway with the Lucas Oil POWRi 600cc Micro Sprint League.

After taking the lead on lap two from competitor Joe B. Miller, Gaulsa made his way through traffic and drove to victory lane for the first time since 2017 with the Lucas Oil POWRi 600cc Micro Sprint League.

Gaulsa started the night off strong with a second-place finish in the first race and was determined to redeem himself and get one spot better than Friday. Gaulsha started off the 20-lap main event on the front row, starting on the outside of Miller.

Miller took off to an early advantage at the start. Gaulsha followed him to the bottom and waited until the second lap to make an attempt at the lead. Gaulsha threw a slider and took over the lead, leading the rest of the way to the finish. Daison Pursley finished second with Aubrey Smith, Shain Kaiser and Daryn Stark completing the top-five.

“We have been working really hard to try and find speed in these cars on the big track,” said Galusha. “We took a swing for the fences, and I thought that we found what we needed. It just feels good to have a strong race car and get a win on this level, these guys are all good, you got to be on your game for all these races. To see Aubrey over there, definitely makes us proud.”

The finish:

Frank Gaulsha, Daison Pursley, Aubrey Smith, Shain Kaiser, Daryn Stark, Bradley Fezard, Trevin Littleton, Campbell Stewart, Tyler Kuykendall, Lance Warner, John Barnard, Hunter Wise, Natalie Doney, Alex Midkiff, Elizabeth Phillips, Joe B. Miller, Tobias Midkiff, Kyle Barker, Alex Owen.
