CALIFORNIA, Mo. — Tyler Blank won Sunday night’s 360 winged sprint car feature at Double-X Speedway.

Tyler Utz and Korey Bales started on the front row. Utz would lead the first two laps before Bales would take the point until sliding off of the top of turn two. On the restart, Utz was back at the point with opening night feature event winner Blank in second.

Utz would lead with Blank keeping pace, on lap 10 Blank would show his front wing to Utz on the low side of turn four and as Utz moved to protect the low line, Blank moved to the top shelf in turns three and four to make the pass for the lead. Evan Martin moved around Utz two laps later to take second and began to reel in the leader.

Martin closed up to challenge for the lead on lap 22, but as he was working around the lapped car of Tyler Utz he slid over the berm in turn one. Martin was able to keep his momentum and came back on the track as the yellow flag waved on for the stalled car of Broc Elliott.

On the restart, Blank moved back to the low groove and held off Evan Martin to claim his second win on the season at Double-X. Taylor Walton was third, Riley Kreisel finished a good run in fourth and Ben Brown finished fifth.

Cody Frazon won the super stock feature and Rick Girard topped the hobby stock race.
