Hanks Is First-Time MOWA Victor

JACKSONVILLE, Ill. — For the first time in his career, Brandon Hanks is a Morrow Brothers Ford MOWA Sprint Car Series main event winner, scoring the win at Jacksonville Speedway on Friday.

Leading flag-to-flag from outside the front row, Hanks had to fight off a few challenges from fellow front-row starter Joey Moughan, who made his first start of the 2021 season aboard the Sears Racing No. 31.

“Man, what a trip. I haven’t got to run a whole lot of 410 races and I don’t have much experience in them, but I’ve run a bit with the All Stars and World of (Outlaws) and of course MOWA. It’s a big night, I’m just so excited,” said Hanks.

The action behind Hanks was exciting to watch as polesitter Joey Moughan made his return to the cockpit of a sprint car after sitting out for over a year. It didn’t take him long to remember how to power around the top shelf of the Jacksonville Speedway as he muscled his No. 31 machine to a second-place finish. 

Tenth-starting Parker Price-Miller in the Nine Six Motorsports No. 96 scored another third-place run with the series, after an intense battle with Zach Daum and Noah Gass.

The finish:

Feature (25 laps): 1 – Brandon Hanks 84H (2), 2 – Joey Moughan 31 (1), 3 – Parker Price-Miller 96 (10), 4 – Zach Daum 31 (5), 5 – Noah Gass 20G (4), 6 – Mitchell Davis 56 (8), 7 – Luke Verardi 28 (14), 8 – Andy Bishop 42 (3), 9 – Jake Neuman 3N (15), 10 – Paul Nienhiser 9x (9), 11 – Korey Weyant 99W (19), 12 – Jeremy Standridge 10S (13), 13 – Caden Englehart 71M (6), 14 – Chris Urish 77U (11), 15 – Paul Haley 17 (18), 16 – Jacob Patton 79J (7), 17 – Logan Faucon 52F (12), DNS – Terry Babb 47 (21), DNS – Dustin Clary 9 (16), DNS – Austin ODell 3 (20), DNS – Dylan Tuxhorn 9T (17), DNS – Ben Wagoner 84 (22)
