GRAND FORKS, N.D. (September 7, 2017) – Bo Gregor of Lisbon claimed his first career River Cities Speedway win in the Wells Concrete Street Stocks. Gregor started on the outside of the front row for the 20-lap main event with Jeremy Gust of Strathcona, Minn. on the pole.
Gregor and Gust battled side by side for the race lead for two consecutive circuits before Gregor cleared Gust on the highside. Gust came storming back to lead lap four, but Gregor found his groove on the highside again to reel him back in and reclaim the point.
Seventh place starter, Ryan Johnson, moved into third on lap five as a five car pack battled for fourth behind him.
Gust stayed persistent on the bottom and reclaimed the lead on lap six. Gregor stayed true to the topside, however, and drove back around Gust the following lap.
Once in open track, Gregor opened up a sizeable advantage over Gust and Johnson. Johnson reeled in Gust with four to go to take second as Gregor cruised to the win by nearly two and a half seconds.
Dan Aberle and Kyle Dykhoff were able to sneak into third and fourth, respectively, as Gust rounded out the top five.
