Ryan Keith Wins Pepsi Tour Golf Tournament At Robinson Ranch

sportslocalRyan Keith of Saugus won the Pepsi Tour golf tournament at Robinson Ranch on Sunday. He shot an even-par 72 and won by two strokes over Darren Angel of Northridge and Tye Alexander of Chino.

It was Keith’s second win on the Pepsi Tour. He collected $700.

 

Ron Hornaday Jr. will look to extend his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series record for consecutive wins tonight at Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee.

Hornaday has won five straight Truck Series races, the most recent coming two weeks ago at Nashville Superspeedway.

“I have to keep pinching myself,” said Hornaday, a former Saugus Speedway champ. “In one sense I really cannot believe the run were having, but at the same time I know how hard this team works and how much effort they put in to each race. We are just fortunate that luck, the racing gods or whatever it is, stays on our side. I’m just really thankful for everything we’ve been blessed with so far this season. We will continue to work hard and try to be consistent and ride it out as long as it will go.”

He also has a Truck Series record 45 career wins and has won two Truck Series races at Bristol. He won back-to-back races in 1997 and 1998. The truck his team is bringing to Bristol is the same truck that won at O’Reilly Raceway Park in Indianapolis. It was Hornaday’s fourth win in his five-race winning streak.

“Before they ground the track it was all about keeping your truck on the bottom of the race track,” Hornaday said. “Now, it is about passing. If you can get your truck to work in the upper groove then you will probably leave the majority of the competition behind. I still like running the bottom, but you have to make your bumper pretty wide if you are going to do that. You just have to make sure the truck turns really well through each turn and the main thing at Bristol is to keep your eyes open at all times and be very aware of what is happening around you. Having a good spotter at Bristol makes all the difference. Rick Carelli (spotter) and I have worked together for many years and I’m confident he is watching every move that each truck is making, he keeps me pretty well informed.”

About Connie Jones

Connie and her husband, John, moved to the Santa Clarita Valley almost 30 years ago. Living in Santa Clarita for that long is the direct opposite of Connie’s childhood. She was an Army ‘brat’ who moved every two to three years. Consequently, she has lived in many states and even spent three years in Europe. All three of her kids went to Santa Clarita schools. Connie says the best thing about her job at KHTS is that she is never bored. “If I’m not smiling, Carl is sure to ask why, just before giving me a mind-boggling project.” “KHTS AM-1220 is an integral part of our community and I’m glad to be a part of it. Besides, the DJs will take my request to play Shania Twain’s ‘Still the One’ for my wedding anniversary – gotta love that!”
