Gordy Gundaker Shows
Out in Summer Nationals Visit to FALS!
23, 2019) Following a rain-out on Friday night at
Tri-City (IL) Speedway, the #11 team ventured to Fairbury American
Legion Speedway in downtown Fairbury, Illinois on Saturday evening,
June 22 for a $10,000 to win DIRTcar Summer Nationals throwdown.
Gordy Gundaker was quick right out of the box and knocked down the
fastest lap in Group A during qualifying before picking up a heat
race triumph. After drawing the third starting spot prior to the
drop of the green flag in the 50-lap headliner, Gordy sported one
of the fastest racecars during the contest and advanced up to second
in the running order. However, a leaking left front tire caused
the St. Charles, Missouri ace to drop back a few spots in the waning
laps to eventually wind up sixth in the final finishing order behind
only winner Brian Shirley, Frank Heckenast, Jr., Tanner English,
Bobby Pierce, and Shannon Babb. Full results from FALS can be accessed
