Speedway rained out Saturday, but action-packed on Sunday
Despite the weekly races getting rained out Saturday night at the Nevada Speedway, 74 cars from around the country showed up to compete in the Lucas Oil NOW600 and Titans B-Mod Series on Sunday.
Jaxton Wiggs of Benton, Ill., took home the checkered flag in the Restricted A Class, going wire-to-wire in the 20-lap feature race. Concordia's Garrett Benson finished second after a close battle with Corbin Rueschenburg of Mesa, Ariz., who was third. Jett Nunley (fourth) and Justis Sokol (fifth) rounded out the top-five.
Benson made up for it in the A Class competition, moving up from his start in seventh to finish first. He was followed by Noah Key (second), Gavin Miller (third), Sokol (fourth), and Talin Turner (fifth).
Chelby Hinton made it a worthwhile trip from Dubberly, La., winning Non-Wing Micros from a starting position in fifth. Colby Sokol was right behind him in second place, followed by Trey Zorn in third, Miller in fourth, and Talin Turner in fifth.
Fort Scott’s Andy Bryant claimed the first-ever win for Titans B-Mods at the Speedway, taking home $1,000 for the 25-lap victory. Chanute’s Tyler Kidwell scored second. Jerry Morgan was third. Matthew Kay finished fourth, and Brian Bolin (also from Fort Scott) took fifth.
Weather-permitting, the Speedway will host Midwest Lightning Sprints and its season championship night starting at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.
