Rain Can’t Slow Wild N Wacky Wednesday


Voglesong won his second feature of the Wild ‘n Wacky Wednesday season, finishing off his 25-lap victory after an extended delay following a rain shower. The race began with several cars making a run at the lead before C.P. Burdick settled into the position. Burdick led until Zach Thomas led lap nine following an inside move. Burdick and Thomas came together in turn four on lap nine, sending Thomas around and Burdick to the rear of the field following the caution flag.

Voglesong inherited the lead for the restart, beating Nate Bryington to turn one when racing resumed. Voglesong went unchallenged in the lead as Wayne Shifflett trailed him until a lap-21 caution flag. During the delay, rain began to fall and the cars were removed from the racing surface.

After the track was dried up, nearly two hours later, Voglesong finished off his romp to victory. Shifflett was able to remain within two car lengths but could not find the handles to make a run. He finished in second, and Chris Thomas ran a solid race to place third.

Porter took the lead after a lap-22 caution flag to go on to the win in the 30-lap X-Car feature. He bested Eric Finkbein Sr. and Ken Downing Jr., however had to overtake a strong effort by Robert Goulet to take the lead. Goulet faded in the closing laps after a valiant effort.

The INEX Bandolero feature saw Marvin pull ahead to a convincing victory in the non-stop 20-lapper. Marvin pulled ahead on lap-2 ahead of a battle for second place that endured the entire race among several drivers. Ken Morin Jr. and David French used the outside lane to line up alongside Jacoby Perry and Corey Comeroski.

That group raced in tight quarters lap after lap as Marvin was able to stretch his lead to over a full straightaway advantage. Morin battled alongside Perry for most of the race for second, finally able to overtake him in the closing laps. Marvin, the point leader in the division was way ahead and cruised to the checkered flag. Morin took second while Perry finished third.
