NIXA, Mo. (May 18, 2017) – Kyle Bellm and the Resource Asset
Management Solutions (RAMS) No. 14k Sprint Car are set to take
on the ASCS Red River Region at Creek County Speedway near
Tulsa, OK, on Friday night after matching a season-best
runner-up finish at Kansas’ Humboldt Speedway last Friday.
Humboldt run that nearly resulted in a repeat win came on the
heels of a rough Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour outing at Kansas
City’s Lakeside Speedway the previous night.
“We were way too
tight all night, we just never got going,” Bellm said of the
Thursday Lakeside card.
Bellm and the PPG
Automotive Finishes/Colorvision team shook it off in short order
with a return to Humboldt Speedway, where he reached victory
lane last year.
Drawing a high
pill, Bellm made the most of it by racing from eighth to fourth
in his heat race aboard the VP Racing Fuels/Schure Built
Suspensions entry to land a spot in the redraw.
Luck was on
Bellm’s side this time around with the Nixa, MO, racer drawing
the pole position for the feature event.
Bellm put the
Christian County Collision Repair/Bybee Lawn Care machine out
front early before a duel for the point developed with Blake
“We led the first
few laps,” Bellm says. “I ran the bottom
early, Blake (Hahn) jumped up top before I did.”
It wasn’t over
yet, as Bellm put the Schaeffer Oil/Prater Designs/The Engine
Heater machine into position to take the win.
“I reeled him in
and had him set up for a last-lap slidejob, then a caution came
out,” Bellm relates. “I don’t know exactly
how it would have come out, but it would have been close.”
As it was, Bellm
settled for a solid runner-up finish to match a runner-up finish
earlier in the season at Moberly’s Randolph County Raceway.
Bellm looks to add
another strong finish on Friday night with his first appearance
of the 2017 season at Creek County Speedway.
Bellm drove the
No. 14k to a runner-up finish to Bryan Clauson at Creek County
Speedway last June during ASCS Speedweek.
