Cameron McGlashan Scores First Victory of 2017 at Sunset Speedway

After taking the lead with 19 laps to go, Cameron McGlashan held on the rest of the way en route to scoring the feature victory at Sunset Speedway.

McGlashan started off the night on an impressive note, winning his first heat, followed by a third-place finish in the second qualifier.

Starting 11th for the 25-lap feature, McGlashan wasted no time making his way to the front, racing side-by-side with Andy Kamrath for fifth as of Lap 2. He began to continued moving up, jumping up to the third spot by Lap 3. He was then able to pass teammate Robert Toope for second before the first caution waved at Lap 7.

Restarting second, he took the top spot and was able to hold off Andy Kamrath on a second restart with nine laps to go to cruise to the checkered flag for the victory.

“I went at ‘er at the start, and once I got by Johnny (Paradzinski) on the restart, I just checked out,” McGlashan said. “When the caution came out, I was like, ‘Ah man, here we go.’ I was just trying to drive nine qualifying laps and we were able to hang on and get the W. So can’t go wrong.”

Restarting alongside Kamrath late in the race, McGlashan said he was having flashbacks to opening night and the battle they shared then.

“(I) just tried to use his move on him, and I think it worked out okay tonight,” he added. “Good to go from here on out, I guess.”

For McGlashan, it marks his fourth top-five of 2017, and continues his streak of finishes no outside of the top-10 in 2017. He currently sits fourth in points, 30 markers behind leader Eric Yorke. He will look to keep the momentum going on July 1 at Sunset Speedway.
