Gulitti Wins $20K Sunday at Texas Triple Tens

Texas Triple Tens Sunday: Chris Gulitti Takes Home $20,000 Big Check; Chad Sandlin Footbrakes His Way To Second Win of the Weekend

The Texas Triple Tens presented by Reliable Air resumed racing Sunday morning after making the call to combine the purse from Saturday and Sunday’s electronics race due to low temperatures and dangerous track conditions. Though racing didn’t go as planned, J’s Joint provided racers with delicious plates of food for the Texas Triple Ten’s Racers Appreciation Dinner.

No Electronics

Texas Triple Tens Sunday started with 209 entries in electronics and 86 entries in no electronics. No Electronic competition was tough as drivers laid down some great packages Sunday, but ultimately Chad Sandlin was able to claim his second big check of the weekend over Lucas Walker. Sandlin and his S-10 were dialed in and proved to be unstoppable as he was .005 and dead on with a two in the final over Lucas Walker. Walker was also dead on with a two but forfeit the win when he was one thousandth of a second too early leaving the starting line.
