Double X Sprint Goes To Wagner

CALIFORNIA, Mo. – Jack Wagner scored the winged sprint car feature at Double X Speedway on Sunday night. 

It was a familiar front row of Taylor Walton and Tyler Blank leading the starting grid for the 25-lap feature event.

Walton quickly moved into the lead with Blank and Wagner completing the top three. Blank would make a pass for the lead on lap five and Wagner would move into the number two spot two laps later and set his sights in the leader.

A lap 11 caution bunched the field behind Blank. On the restart Blank would change his line as the No. 77 of Wagner was getting faster each lap running the high line dancing against a thin cushion.

Wagner would make the pass for the lead on lap sixteen. A lap 20 caution would set up a five lap dash to the checkers.

Wagner would emerge victorious with Blank earning second. Ben Brown made a late race charge from fifth to take third, Walton would finish fourth and Samuel Wagner was sixth.
