Wagner Scores Double X Winged Sprint Car Feature

CALIFORNIA, Mo. — After two weeks of too much rain at the wrong time, Double X Speedway was ready to rumble with Sunday Night Thunder of the horsepower type.

The Winged Sprint Cars were the highlight class of the evening and Jack Wagner,  coming off a scary incident Saturday night, picked up in fine fashion after the two week lay off.

Starting alongside brother Samuel Wagner on the front row of the 25-lap main event, it took Jack Wagner a lap-and-a-half to gain the lead. Restarting after a lap two caution, Wagner kept the No. 77 JHR machine at the point for the remaining 23 laps running mostly unchallenged for the lead.

The real action was occurring behind him as Taylor Walton, Ben Brown, Tyler Blank and Gunner Ramey were mixing it up in the top-five.

At the checkered flag it was Wagner claiming the win with seventh-starting Ramey claiming  second place. Walton would finish third, Brown was fourth and Blank crossed the stripe in fifth. 

In the Super Stock division, James Nighswonger picked up his first win at Double X. 

Darin Porter took a while to get his season in Pure Stocks rolling, but once he had figured his car out, he has been on a roll. This weekend was no different, picking up two feature wins in two outings.
