250 Open Class Race 1; Wyatt was given first lane choice in the first row of 4 cars and hoped he chose wisely for the start of the race. When the green flag dropped, Jackson Mandle stole the hole shot but Wyatt was right on Jackson’s tail for the first half a lap but then Wyatt got impatient and tried to make a pass and ended up hitting Jackson from behind. Both cars were tangled and locked together while the rest of the field pass both of them before the corner workers could get the cars unlocked and back on track in 7th and 8th, far behind the leaders. Wyatt then set his sights on passing as many cars as possible in the 9 laps left in the race. Wyatt set the fastest race lap by almost 3 seconds and was able to cross the finish line in P3. Immediately after the race, Wyatt headed straight over to Jackson’s pit area and apologized to Jackson for the incident on lap 1, offering Jackson an ice-cold Root Beer. Something you don’t see many, or enough, racers do at these events.
Youth 1000 Class Race; Unlike Wyatt’s race, Mason had a drama free race, taking the hole shot and never looking back, taking the checker flag in dominating fashion 38 seconds ahead of the next of 15 competitors. Mason also set the fastest lap time of the race almost 4 seconds quicker than the next competitor.
Now racing in the 1000 N/A class, Mason had to again qualify, this time in a stacked field of 15 other expert competitors, most with the engine modifications that this class allows. Mason qualified P3 in his stock motored Ben’s Asphalt sponsored Polaris RS1.
250 Open Class Race 2; Five of the eight cars from Saturday made the call for Race 2 on Sunday. Wyatt again starting from the front row, took the hole shot and calmly settled in P1 for the next 10 laps. Jackson Mandle applied a lot of pressure on Wyatt from behind but couldn’t quite catch Wyatt finishing P2 two seconds behind Wyatt in P1.
1000 N/A Class; Mason hole shotted the stacked front row at the start with his Hoosier Bites, Chase Makin was following very close behind. This continued for the first 5 laps till Chase eventually passed Mason as the 2 weaved their way thru the lapped traffic. It was now Mason’s chance to give chase, on Chase. The two battled closely for the remainder of the race leaving the rest of the field far behind. Mason finished P2 only 7 seconds behind, but 40 seconds ahead of P3.
