Presley Sorah Scores 2nd Win of the Season at Texas

Round Four of the Monday Night Racing Pro Series took us to Texas Motor Speedway with the Radical SR8 car. Taking home the victory was Presley Sorah, his second win of the early season.

“This is awesome,” as Sorah exclaimed shortly after the checkered flag tonight. “I really didn’t expect to win this one, as this was on the very top of my wildcard list for the season as it was flat out pack racing.”

Last week, Michael Massie and myself discussed how the racing would be with our guest, Robby Lyons. We all predicted that we would see a Daytona type race with three and four wide racing at times. That’s exactly what we saw Monday, and it made for a very entertaining event.

Dominating the race early on was Daytona winner Anthony Alfredo, but a restart violation mired him deep in the field and he was never able to make his way back to the lead. He was involved in a last lap wreck that relegated him to a 21st-place finish.

The front of the field featured several drivers who needed a good run such as Xfinity Series drivers Brandon Brown, Robby Lyons and Rajah Caruth. All three had strong runs tonight in the top five mostly all race. However, Lyons and Caruth were involved in a late race accident after those strong runs. Brown wound up leading most of the event after the Alfredo issues, and proved he was going to be hard to beat.

In the end, Sorah was able to come home victorious after this wild, crazy race.

Collin Fern, Max Kennon, Matt Stallknecht, and Nick Olsen rounded out the top five finishers.

The next race takes place in two weeks at the Eldora Speedway with the Dirt Street Stocks. Coverage begins at 8 p.m. on Twitch.tv/podiumesports.
