Bellm Stops Blank At Double-X


CALIFORNIA, Mo. — Sunday night saw the third annual Dylan Bias Memorial Race come to the Double-X Speedway with Kyle Bellm winning the headlining 360 sprint car feature.

Bellm took the lead from the pole and led the 25-lap distance to end Tyler Blank’s four-race winning streak. Blank was running second when he suffered a flat tire with two laps remaining.

Tyler Utz posted a good finish in second, Taylor Walton was third, Ayrton Gennetten finished fourth and Randy Martin completed the top five.

The Henson brothers Derek and Cole led the field to the green flag to begin the super stock event. Derek Henson would use the low groove to take the lead which never grew over four car lengths for the duration of the event.

Toby Ott and Marc Carter ran second and third right on the bumper for the majority of the event. Some close racing between Henson and Ott led to Ott coming to a stop on the top of turn four on lap 22. On the restart Derek Henson was still at the point with Carter and Cole Henson lining up behind him.

With three laps remaining, Henson would hold the slim advantage over the field to claim the victory. Marc Carter would earn a well contested second, Cole Henson was third, Zach Zeugin was fourth and Joe Miller finished fifth after starting 13th.

The hobby stock division rolled out next on the feature slate with Chuck Coffey and Kyle Smith running one-two early and just past the halfway point Dakota Girard joined the fray. Smith and Girard would challenge the leader on the white flag lap but Coffey was not to be denied.

Smith would win the duel for second with Girard finishing third.
