CALIFORNIA, Mo. — A familiar face was in victory lane Sunday night at Double-X Speedway as Tyler Blank grabbed his sixth winged sprint car triumph of the season at the track.

Blank led from the front row and held off Taylor Walton for the triumph.

After an opening lap caution for Riley Kreisel, Walton and Blank were side by side on the front row for the restart. A lap 15 caution slowed the field which was a welcome relief for Blank, as he had encountered some traffic that allowed Walton to close the gap.

Green flag racing was short lived as the caution waved again on lap 17 for two cars coming together in turn three. On the next restart, Blank led Walton, Brown and Tyler Elliott.

Blank was able to maintain his lead over the field from there to the finish and pick up another feature win on the season at Double-X. Walton drove a valiant race to finish second, while Frank Brown, Tyler Elliott and Kaitlyn Boland rounded out the top five.

Scott Constock, Broc Elliott and Riley Kreisel completed the field.

The 600cc Winged Micro class saw Riley Goodno open a good lead on the opening lap and he was not challenged for the duration. Philip Dietz gave chase but could not mount a charge and settled for second. Travis Arnold was third, Nick Rasa fourth and Kevin Powell completed the field.

John Clancy topped the street stock feature and Mike Schrader won the hobby stock race.
