Wrexham dominated at Gateshead to secure a second successive Conference Premier win.
The 2012-13 play-off side had to wait until veteran striker Brett Ormerod's 55th-minute header to take the lead.
Defender Steve Tomassen hit home from close range with a right-foot shot to extend the visitors' lead.
And Andy Bishop headed in to finish off a fine night's work for Andy Morrell's team as the hosts suffered a sixth defeat in nine games.
Wrexham's record now reads played nine, won three, with two draws and four defeats.
