GRAND FORKS, ND (June 13) - Travis Robertson of Moorhead, MN picked up his fourth career RCS Street Stock win with a late race pass over Ryan Johnson to take the lead.
Robertson, who started sixth for the 15 lap feature, moved into second by lap four and put last week's winner, Ryan Johnson in his crosshairs. Johnson, who started fourth and took the lead on lap two, was able to hold off the 2014 WISSOTA Street Stock National Rookie of the Year for the majority of the race, but Robertson pulled even with him with 10 laps to go.
Robertson's Tires Plus #10R proved to be too strong for Johnson in the closing laps, as he powered by the 2013 RCS track champion and cruised to his sixth overall victory of 2015.
Johnson had to settle for the runner-up spot, while Nick Linert, Jim Geringer, and Nick Minske rounded out the top five.
