Ross Robinson Repeats In Georgetown Speedway’s Mark ‘Coot’ Williams Memorial

Story By: BEN SHELTON / ROSS ROBINSON RACING – GEORGETOWN, DE – For the second-straight year Ross Robinson bested the Mark ‘Coot’ Williams Memorial at Delaware’s Georgetown Speedway.

In the driver’s seat of his Commonwealth Equipment / Stockley Materials No. 7 DutchStar Motorsports / The Frozen Farmer / Wesley Collins Builders / XR1 Rocket Chassis / Clements Race Engine Super Late Model on Saturday night, Robinson outran Rick Eckert to collect the $3,026 winner’s check.

“Mark (Coot) would’ve loved the track tonight,” Robinson said with a smile in Victory Lane. “It had just a little bit of chop and some bite to it. “Rick (Eckert) helped me a lot in Florida this year. I recently joked with him that hopefully he helped me enough so I could keep him from winning at home, and tonight we were able to do just that.

“We’ve had a good start to this season so far, and this win is another shot in our arm. We’ll take this week off and get ready for Port Royal (Speedway) the following weekend.”

Making the short trip to his home track of Georgetown Speedway (Georgetown, Del.) on Friday, Ross Robinson entered his Stockley Speed & Supply No. 7 Late Model into battle at the half-mile oval for the Mark “Coot” Williams Memorial.

Racing into the feature with a flag-to-flag victory in his heat race, Robinson soared ahead of Rick Eckert following a lap-two restart and paced the remainder of the 26-lapper to capture his first win of the season and the $3,026 payday.

He finished 2.364 seconds ahead of Rick Eckert with Bryan Bernheisel, Trever Feathers, and Jamie Lathroum rounding out the top-five.

Ross will be idle this week before resuming the 2024 season on Saturday, April 13 at Port Royal (Pa.) Speedway with a Weekly Racing Series Event.
