Smith Keeps Winning With POWRi WAR

ELDON, Mo. — Wesley Smith would maintain perfection on the season in the first night of SprintFest feature event at Lake Ozark Speedway with the POWRi WAR Sprint League to notch his 15th career feature victory to being the Memorial Day Weekend doubleheader.

Racing onto the quick surface of Lake Ozark, POWRi WAR would find traditional sprinters witnessing Xavier Doney set the quickest hot-lap time of 13.733-second lap as Doney earned heat racing victories.

Kickstarting the initial green flag start with high-point qualifier Doney and Smith lined up in the front row, Smith would gain the lead on the opening lap with Doney blasting into the runner-up spot.

Holding steady out front, Smith would hold off the quick efforts of Doney as laps would tick away at a rapid rate as action aplenty maintained behind the leading pair of top-notch competitors.

Never missing a beat out front, Smith would emerge victorious with the POWRi WAR to notch his third-straight yearly league victory. Staying in the hunt, Doney would finish runner-up as hard-charger Tom Curran completed the final podium placements.

“It’s nice to have this car under us this good to start the year off,” said Smith. “Track crew really did some magic on this track with as many cars in the pits tonight, what a great track surface for sprints.”

Challenging closely behind would find Chase Howard finish fourth as Samuel Wagner rounded out the top-five finishers.
