Happy Returns For Gresham
Rookie makes it a winning trip back to South Boston

SOUTH BOSTON, Va. – Max Gresham returned to the track where he made his NASCAR K&N Pro Series East debut a year ago and drove to Victory Lane Saturday at South Boston Speedway.

Gresham finished fifth in the 2009 event. He only made three starts last season to maintain his Sunoco Rookie of the Year eligibility for 2010.

Gresham collected his first 21 Means 21 presented by Coors Light Pole Award Saturday afternoon and led all but four of the 150 laps. However, he had his hands full holding off a furious late-race charge from fellow rookie Cole Whitt, which featured the two racing side-by-side in the closing stages. Gresham was finally able to break clear over the last 10 laps and secure to the win.

Whitt settled for second and took over the points lead two races into the season. He leads Ryan Gifford by 25 points.

Ryan Truex finished third, followed by Gifford and Matt Kobyluck.

Brett Moffitt, the defending race winner, recovered from a spin on Lap 95 while battling Whitt for second to finish sixth. Eddie MacDonald, Drew Brannon, D.J. Shaw and Ty Dillon rounded out the top 10.

The NASCAR K&N Pro Series East next races on May 23 in the annual combination event with the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West at Iowa Speedway in Newton, Iowa.
