Brandon Thirlby (M14) picked up a $5,000 ALMS victory at Winston.
What won the race: Holding off a furious charge from 17th-starting Rich Bell, polesitter Brandon Thirlby of Traverse City, Mich., claimed his fifth Sunoco American Late Model Series victory Friday at Winston Speedway.

Key notes: Thirlby won his third straight visit to Winston. ... Early race leader Greg Gokey of Buckley, Mich, finished sixth. … Gokey, Thirlby, and Travis Stemler took part in a heated battle in the middle stages of the 40-lapper but Thirlby pulled way late. … The Sunoco American Late Model Series returned to Winston Speedway for the first time in six years for Friday’s $5,000-to-win event that serves as the first leg of the tour’s weekend doubleheader between Winston’s 3/8-mile and Oakshade Raceway in Wauseon, Ohio.
On the move: Rich Bell of Sheffield, Ill., started 17th and finished second.
Winner's sponsors: Thirlby’s Rocket Chassis has a Pro Power Racing Engine and sponsorship from Thirlby Automotive, Corrigan Race Fuels, FK Rod Ends, Dynamic Drivelines and KBC Graphix.
