Cook Competes Against World of Outlaws Competitors in Peach State
(May 9, 2018) Ray
Cook and the Wynn Motorsports team entered a pair of World of
Outlaws Craftsman Late Model Series shootouts in the Peach State
of Georgia from May 3-5. The extended weekend kicked off on Thursday
night at Lavonia Speedway in Lavonia, Georgia, as a $10,000 top
prize was up for grabs. Ray jumped the cushion during his qualifying
laps, but rebounded to finish seventh in his stacked heat race
and third in the B-Main. After starting the 50-lap feature event
from the inside of the eleventh row, Ray raced hard early in the
show before going a lap down to eventual winner Brandon Sheppard.
The Brasstown, North Carolina ace wound up pulling off the racing
surface and settled for a twenty-second place performance.
On Saturday evening on the "gray gumbo" at Senoia Raceway
in Senoia, Georgia, a similar WOOLMS show was held and another
$10,000 winner's check was on the line. Ray stopped the clock
ninth fastest in Group B during qualifying prior to grabbing the
fourth and final transfer spot through his heat race. After rolling
off from the inside of the eighth row in the 50-lapper, the popular
driver known as the "Tarheel Tiger" was door-slammed
by another competitor hard enough to bend two wheels, but soldiered
on to salvage a sixteenth place showing. Full results from both
weekend races can be accessed online at www.woolms.com.
The #53 team will take the upcoming May 11-12 weekend off from
racing action, as Ray will put his promoter's hat on for races
at Tri-County Race Track in Brasstown, North Carolina on Friday
and Dixie Speedway in Woodstock, Georgia on Saturday. Next up
on Ray's racing schedule will be a trip north to the Commonwealth
of Kentucky on May 18-19 for a pair of Schaeffer's Oil Southern
Nationals Bonus Series and Iron-Man Championship Series co-sanctioned
showdowns. The Lake Cumberland Speedway in Burnside, Kentucky
will pay $4,000 to the winner next Friday night, while Richmond
Raceway in Richmond, Kentucky will hold a huge $10,000 to win
program on Saturday evening. More information concerning these
specials can be found online at www.southernnationalsseries.com.
