BOYD, Texas (May 27, 2022) – William Gould got to the track late but he got to the finish line first. Twice. Gould won both Friesen Performance IMCA Modified and IMCA Sunoco Stock Car features Friday at Boyd Raceway, on night two of the All Star Shootout. “It was a good night for sure,” said Gould, who pulled into the pits just about the time the first green flag was waving after spending the day helping Gould Race Cars customers get their own cars ready for the weekend. “I only consider myself as fast as I was in my last race and tomorrow we might be terrible, but tonight we were pretty fast.” He’d started 22nd in the Stock Car main – Gould was in a borrowed ride and was disqualified for an illegal carburetor – and needed just seven laps to race his way up to third. Gould took the lead for good one lap later and won ahead of Thursday Shootout winner Jeffrey Abbey, who’d loaned him a new carburetor, Blake Clark and 17th starting [Read More]
