I apologize for the tardiness of our results. There was an issue with the finish that needed to be resolved due to a call that was made as it had the potential to change the outcome of the Championship.
Pearce Takes ASCS Elite North Non-Wing Finale At El Paso County
Bryan Hulbert – CALHAN, Colo. (September 26, 2020) Gaining his fifth career victory with the ASCS Elite North Non-Wing Series on Saturday night, Coby Pearce closed out the 2020 season with his second overall win on the year.
The leading winner with the Non-Wing tour, Pearce launched to the lead on Lap 2 after gridding the field to the right of the second row.
Never relinquishing the point throughout the rest of the A-Feature, the No. 92 was trailed by Jeff Seesholtz who, after starting 12th, made it to the finish 1.564-seconds later. Despite a valiant run, the Fountain, Colo. shoe came up three-point shy of the championship which went to Brett Ream.
From 11th, Jesse Fernandez made it to fourth with Nick Nichols in fifth.
New Mexico’s Michael Fanelli was sixth with Brian Hardman, Gary Land, Butch Hardman, Mark Chisholm, and Ryan Devitt making up the top ten.
Plans for the 2021 season are already in the works. As soon as a schedule is available, it will be posted at http://www.ascsracing.com.
