In the fifth High Banks Hustle at Southern Illinois Raceway, Frank Galusha comes home $10,000 richer. The fifth different winner, from the fifth different state, Galusha bested 132 of the country’s best drivers and delivered an action packed feature event with moments of determination, agility, and emotion. In his 20+ years of racing, Frank’s sacrifices and hard work paid off to earn the biggest victory of his career.

With six lock-in positions on the line, drivers would be forced to battle each other through a cutthroat round of 13 heat races, eight qualifiers, and the 30-lap preliminary feature. With a dedicated team by his side Frank completed qualifying action to earn a 10th starting spot. Knowing his STALLARD SST was capable and ready to charge forward, Galusha methodically maneuvered into the third finishing position to become one of the six locked in to the big dance on Saturday night.

Chasing a career-defining victory, Frank proved to be his jovial self – keeping the atmosphere around camp STALLARD light yet focused. Continually checking on his fellow SST drivers to ensure their comfort as they too battled for a spot in the championship event. When the dust settled, three STALLARD SST’s earned positions in the show. Frank starting 6th, Dan Souder, and Jake Galusha. With an immense battle up front for the duration of the race, Frank saw some intense moments that almost wiped out his chances for a victory. The last lap was one for the record books. Hinged on a restart, the win came in dramatic fashion as the leaders all chose different paths to a potential victory. When the dust settled, it was a consistent car with a huge team effort that crossed the stripe first and branded Frank a champion of one of the most challenging micro events ever run.
