BONHAM, Texas – Gary Williams was better than good the first four nights and good enough on the last night of the Red River Tour for IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars. “We weren’t even planning to run the whole tour. Then we won the first night out at Kennedale Speed­way Park,” the Bonham, Texas, driver said. “We had been chasing some things and what we found worked. We knew we had a fast car.”center_img Williams won two features, with second- and fourth-place finishes as well going into the finale at home track Southern Oklahoma Speedway. “It was really good to be able to win this tour, racing with the combination of guys who are that good,” Wil­liams said. “We’re not a high dollar team. My son Shelby (fifth in the tour points) and I have homebuilt chassis and camped in a trailer on the way. I kind of felt like the underdog.” Starts 5                    Wins 2        Additional Top Five’s 2 He started 17th that evening and was up to sixth before breaking a spindle bolt.
