HAUGHTON, La. - Sept. 4. One of the SUPR series' most enduring competitors, northwest Louisiana veteran Ronny nipped ninth starting up-and-comer Kyle Cummings by a half car length to get his second win of the season as the Southern United Professional Racing Series returned to Champion Park Speedway.

comfortable lead. Ashley covered his line well as Kenny Merchant, winner of the three previous races held here this season, advancing to third to pressure the young Ashley.  Merchant's bid ended when he nicked an infield tire as he nudged his #28 under Ashley, ending his night midway through the race with minor suspension damage.

Ashley maintained third to earn his series best to date, with Jon Mitchell and southern Arkansas driver Odie Green completing the top five.
