KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Saturday night in Lucas Oil MLRA action at Lakeside Speedway it was all Will Vaught.
He started at the back of his heat race and won. This put him on the pole where he checked out and led every lap, to score his second Lucas Oil MLRA late model win of the season.
“Starting up front at a place like this means a lot,” said Vaught. “Our car was perfect. I’m happy for Warrior (Race Cars).”
Vaught got caught up in an accident during his heat. With severe nose damage he was able to regroup during intermission.
“I really thought our night was ended,” said Vaught. Luckily for the team, the damage was isolated to the body and not any of the suspension or steering components.
Brad Looney worked up to the runner-up spot early in the race and held off charges form both Kyle Berck and Chris Simpson. Looney was able to narrow the gap between he and Vaught at times, but never challenged for the lead.
Friday night’s winner, Kyle Berck, rolled past seven cars to finish third. He never really had much breathing room as he was constantly around other cars for position. Chris Simpson pushed forward form eleventh to run fourth. In only his second dirt late model feature, Ryan Gustin passed nine cars and rounded out the top five.
