Blank Wings It At Double X Speedway

CALIFORNIA, Mo. — Sunday Night Smackdown saw Tyler Blank claim victory in the winged 360 sprint cars, Bobby Williams standing tall in B Modified victory lane and Waylon Dimmitt picking up the street stock victory at Double X Speedway.

Ben Brown took the lead at the drop of the green in the sprint car feature event and ran the top shelf like a bandit for the first five laps of the event.

On lap six a familiar looking machine sailed by for the lead and would not be headed for the duration as Blank secured his first victory of 2023. It was by no means an uncontested victory though as Brown would make gains and get close to Blank before fading to third.

Moving into the number two spot, Jack Wagner would reel in Blank but was unable to muster a pass, allowing Blank to take the checkers. Wagner was second at the stripe with Brown in third, Taylor Walton in fourth and Steven Russell completing the top five.

In the B Modified “guest class” feature event, last week’s feature winner Adam Hall would lead the field to the green and take the advantage over fellow front row starter Bobby Williams. Hall would lead with Williams hanging close and taking the lead on lap six and go the distance to claim the victory. Hall would finish a strong second with Cody Brill finishing third, Colson Kirk fourth and Parker Smith completing the top five.

The street stock feature would see a series of interruptions, but the real show was on the track with long time racer Joe Miller and first time visitor Waylon Dimmitt running side by side for the majority of the event.

With Miller running the cushion and Dimmitt digging on the bottom the laps clicked by. Dimmitt would take command with only a couple laps left to secure the win. Miller would finish a string second with Zack Smith third, Adam Halley fourth and Jody Romig in fifth.
