ELDON, Mo. — Getting his second career victory with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network, Canada’s Dylan Westbrook topped Sunday’s SawBlade.com A-Feature at Lake Ozark Speedway.
Westbrook committed his No. 47 sprint car to the top grovoe.
“The longer we went, we were able to move the track up and it started to smooth out. The closer to the wall we got, the better it was, but getting there was shaky at times,” stated Westbrook. “A few times, I was lucky to get through, but here we are. We’re focused on winning races and just finishing out the year strong. Thank you to Miles [Hill] and everyone who supports this team.”
Chasing Miles Paulus for the opening seven revolutions, Westbrook shot to the lead on lap eight.
Fending off challenges through numerous restarts, traffic was in play the final five laps. Racing the rim of the Lake Ozark Speedway, Ayrton Gennetten closed rapidly on the Nitro 54 Variety No. 47x. Down to mere car lengths with only a couple laps to go, traffic played back into Westbrook’s favor, allowing the Hills Racing Team driver to pull away by 1.295 seconds.
Gennetten finished second, with Garet Williamson romping from ninth to finish third.
Rolling through traffic from 16th, Matt Covington held off the last lap charge of Blake Hahn to take fourth.
