ELDON, Mo. — Kory Schudy mastered the third-mile oval of Lake Ozark Speedway by claiming the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League feature event on Saturday night.
It was his seventh career victory with the series.
Launching to the initial green flag start would see high point qualifier and pole-sitter Jack Wagner battle outside front-row companion Wyatt Burks into the first pair of corners as Burks quickly gained the early racing advantage with sixth-starting Kory Schudy quickly gaining.
Using the low line to perfection, Schudy would finesse his way to the front of the field with precision as Jack Wagner, Anthony Nicholson, Wyatt Burks, and Cody Baker all raced inside the top five with the laps winding down.
“Sometimes you just have to sell out and guard the bottom and that is what I did tonight, overall a great win for the team moving forward,” said Schudy said. “The yellow kind of saved the race for us with the lap cars right there towards the end, sometimes things just work out for you and that was the case tonight.”
Anthony Nicholson would place a very close runner-up with Xavier Doney flying onto the podium in the late stages of the feature.
