Joey Gase: No trouble with lapped traffic on way to win

Basking in victory, Joey Gase couldn’t resist the light-hearted dig.

The 27-year-old Gase, who has taken some degree of scorn from Kyle Busch for his pace in underfunded equipment in the NASCAR Cup Series, won in the DNQ Karting Series on Monday night at Millbridge Speedway near Salisbury, North Carolina. On social media, Gase said he pulled a last-lap crossover move to pass Mike Contarino, who has a number in common with Busch — No. 18.

Gase is still looking for his first top-10 finish in the Cup Series, but proudly showed off the trophy he brought home Monday to twin sons Jace and Carson.
