Tim Crawley Wins ASCS Regional Showdown At The Ralph Henson Memorial


Bryan Hulbert - LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (September 14, 2019) Using patience and traffic to his advantage, Tim Crawley topped a stacked field of 38 drivers in the 12th annual Ralph Henson Memorial at I-30 Speedway.
A combined ASCS Regional event with the Stealth Recovery ASCS Mid-South and American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Regions, the win is Crawley's second career Ralph Henson Memorial victory since 2015, and fifth overall with the Stealth Recovery ASCS Mid-South Region.
"This race means a lot to me. I grew up racing with this old man [Wally Henson] and Ralph let me drive his car a few times when I was coming up, so this trophy, it really has a lot of meaning to me," explained Crawley
Taking the green from fourth, Crawley made the quick move to third as Blake Jenkins and Sean McClelland took off with the first two positions. Moving past McClelland for second after a Lap 1 restart, Crawley kept Jenkins insight. Keeping in line after a restart following a red for Hayden Martin on Lap 6, Tim kept in the tire tracks of the No. 99 until the pair made the way into slower traffic.
Moving in to put Ernie Ainsworth a lap down, Crawley began picking up the pace. On Jenkins' back bumper on Lap 17, Crawley showed a nose to the No. 99, pressuring him to drive in harder, and in doing so, made Blake slip off the bottom and open the door for Tim to advance to the lead on Lap 18.
With slower cars still in line ahead of him, it wasn't enough to allow anyone to challenge as Tim opened his advantage to a straightaway over the closing laps. Also using traffic to his advantage, Sean McClelland had slipped a little bit in the mid-point of the feature but came back to finish second. Missing the line in the early goings and falling out of the top five, Howard Moore likewise made a rebound run to third. Dale Howard crossed fourth with Kyle Clark advancing 10 spots to complete the top five.
Blake Jenkins slipped to sixth with Tony Bruce, Jr. moving to seventh after starting 16th. Brad Bowden from 18th crossed eighth with Jordon Mallett ninth from 17th. Mississippi's Joey Schmidt completed the top ten.
The next Stealth Recovery ASCS Mid-South Region goes green again on September 28 at Jackson Motor Speedway in Byram, Miss. before returning to I-30 Speedway for the COMP Cams Short Track Nationals presented by Hoosier Tire on Friday, October 4 and Saturday, October 5.
