Inside Line Promotions – ELDON, Mo. (Sept. 7, 2021) – Garet Williamson produced one of his most successful weekends of the season as he guided two different race teams to podium result.

Williamson made the most of his first-ever opportunity to pilot Scott Bonar’s No. 50 sprint car last Friday at Randolph County Raceway in Moberly, Mo. Williamson advanced from second to win a heat race, from fourth to third place in the dash and from fourth to second in the Sprint Invaders A Main.

“It was pretty cool and was neat to have that happen for the first time,” he said. “We relaxed and had a fun night. Coming to the last lap I got within five car lengths of the leader, but it was too little too late. We got to traffic too late in the race.”

The strong weekend continued on Sunday at Lake Ozark Speedway, where Williamson returned to the Bryant Paver Motorsports No. 24 for a Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour race.

“We’ve been fast there all year, but hadn’t had the results to show for it,” he said. “We drew on the front row for our heat race, but I didn’t win it so that hurt us. We ended up starting ninth.”

Williamson’s runner-up result in a heat race started him on the inside of the fifth row in the main event.

“We fell back to 15th or 16th,” he said. “I was struggling to get by cars. We had a red and I was able to clear my mind. I started running a lot higher and above the ruts. It was really rolling for us pretty good.”

Williamson’s rally into a third-place result was his seventh podium run of the season.

“It was really nice to have a consistent run both nights and be on the podium each time,” he said.

Williamson will take this weekend off before resuming competition Sept. 16-18 at Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo., during the Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour.
