Tri-County Race Track

Cook Sets Fast Time at North Georgia Speedway, but Collected in Feature Wreck
(March 7, 2018) Next up on the racing calendar for the #53 team was a trip to North Georgia Speedway in Chatsworth, Georgia on Saturday evening, March 3 for the Ultimate Super Late Model Series lid lifter. A 31 car field assembled at the northern Georgia oval for the $4,000 to win shootout.

Ray Cook knocked down the quickest lap during the qualifying session to earn Fast Time honors and the pole position for the 40-lap main event. After leading a couple of opening laps and contending early in the distance, Ray was unfortunately collected in a wreck with a spinning lapped car and retired from the contest on lap seventeen. The Brasstown, North Carolina standout settled for a disappointing twenty-fourth place effort following the incident. Complete results from NGS can be accessed online at

"Just like at Bulls Gap the week prior, we qualified well at North Georgia and ran up front early in the race," quoted Cook this week via telephone. "Unfortunately, we just haven't been able to close the deal and be around at the end of the race when it pays the money. Our Capital racecar has been very good and shown some speed, we just need a little luck to go with it."

The Wynn Motorsports team will take the upcoming March 9-10 weekend off from racing action, but Ray will be busy with a couple of different promoting duties. The Tri-County Race Track in Brasstown, North Carolina will hold an open practice session on Friday evening from 6:00pm-9:30pm to kick off their 2018 campaign. On Saturday night, the Schaeffer's Oil Southern Nationals Bonus Series will preside over the $5,053 to win 'Southeastern Classic' at Dixie Speedway in Woodstock, Georgia. This historical show will be the first race of the 2018 season for both the track and the tour, but will also mark the first event with the new "Droop Rule" that Ray introduced in December of 2017.

Wynn Motorsports would like to thank the following group of sponsors for their continued support: Wynn Land Development, Dublin Winwater, Heartland EMS, Keyser Manufacturing, Capital Race Cars, Andy Durham Racing Engines, Modern Images, Schaeffer's Racing Oil, Sunoco Race Fuels, American Racer South, GW Performance, Performance Friction Brakes, FK Rod Ends, Outlaw Racing Products, The Joie of Seating, PPM Racing Products, Wiles Driveshafts, and Delph Communications.
