Winston-Salem, NC (July 1, 2013) Flying Ryan Robertson lived up to his nickname in Saturday night’s NASCAR Whelen All-American Classic Muscle Sportsman Series 60-lap feature at the famed 1/4-mile. Proving that his car would be the one to beat, Robertson continued to excel during morning practice. As nightfall descended upon historic Bowman Gray Stadium, Robertson would receive the luck of the draw to put his No. 21 Workshop of Davidson Chevy in the lead position for this feature race.
Robertson took off in the opening laps of the feature race and would continue to dominate until a challenge by fellow competitor, Zack Clifton would cause him to fall back to third with 18 laps to go. A hard charging Derek Stoltz would quickly take this lead from Clifton with Robertson following for the runner up finish.
Although hoping for a win for both his family and his supportive sponsor, The Workshop of Davidson, Inc., Robertson said that this race couldn’t have been more fun.
“That was good hard racing,” said Robertson. “I hate second but that was a lot of fun and I left nothing on the table, that is what this sport is all about.”
Although he couldn’t be in attendance, Mike Foster, executive director at The Workshop of Davidson, Inc., said “We are so happy for Ryan and the entire Robertson Motorsports team for their strong run this past weekend. The Workshop of Davidson is proud to have our collaboration with Ryan and everyone associated with the No. 21 Chevy.”
