ALMS: Ruhlman Repeats at I-96

LAKE ODESSA, Mich. - Aug. 21. Brian Ruhlman picked up his second straight win in August and his third on the season with the Sunoco American Late Model Series (ALMS) at I-96 Speedway.

Ruhlman, of Clarklake, Mich., got a little help from early leader Jeep Van Wormer, whose high-flying driving style yielded a brief slip off the track's top side, giving Ruhlman the opening he needed to grab a lead he would not relinquish.  Canadian driver Andrew Reaume made his own impression on the tour when he drove by Van Wormer and held down second at the finish.

With Ruhlman grabbing the win over Reaume and Van Wormer and thus bolstering his point lead on the regional tour, veteran Kris Patterson and Devin Shiels also captured top five finishes. Ruhlman got another boost to his points position when second in points Rusty Schlenk suffered a disappointing non-finish near the rear of the finishing order after an early altercation with another car.






Rusty Schlenk lost ground to leader Brian Ruhlman in points with an early race-ending tangle with another car.
