ELKO, Minn. (September 21, 2013) - Typically rookies don't make things look so simple. Then again, there hasn't been much typical about Dan Gilster's rookie season with the Mid-American Stock Car Series.
After fighting off some early-season gremlins, Gilster picked up his first win Saturday night at Elko Speedway in the Thunderstruck 30 presented by Bravo Trailers. He cruised from the pole-position, and led wire-to-wire in the caution-free feature event.
"It's pretty special," the West Salem, Wis., driver said. "This year is my first year doing a traveling series, and it's been a struggle at times."
