JACKSONVILLE, Ill. — Paul Nienhiser won Friday night’s Built Ford Tough MOWA Sprint Cars Delivered by Morrow Brothers Ford feature at Jacksonville Speedway.

Veteran Terry Babb had command of the race early, but Nienhiser worked his way to second and began challenging.

Fortunately, for Nienhiser, he was able to find some traction on the restart and worked past Babb, entering turn one on the high side.

Nienhiser never looked back over the remaining seven laps of the feature as he picked up his second win of 2019 with the MOWA Sprint Cars, his 14th career victory.

“This feature was one of those where you definitely had to stay out of trouble, the leaders had a couple close calls. The track was pretty dominant so I knew whenever somebody would move, I needed to be in the right place at the right time – and tonight I was,” Nienhiser said.

Babb finished second, ahead of Jacob Patton, Joe Miller and Jeremy Standridge.

The finish:

Feature [25 Laps] : 1 – Paul Nienhiser 9X (3), 2 – Terry Babb 47 (2), 3 – Jacob Patton 79J (9), 4 – Joe B Miller 31 (7), 5 – Jeremy Standridge 10S (4), 6 – Jason Keith 28 (5), 7 – Kyle Schuett 9K (11), 8 – Andy Bishop 33 (18), 9 – Jim Moughan 1M (8), 10 – Logan Faucon 52F (12), 11 – Austin ODell 97 (19), 12 – Dustin Barks 22 (13), 13 – Christopher King 13K (22), 14 – Joey Moughan 29 (1), 15 – Brayton Lynch 29X (16), 16 – George Crawford 57 (23), 17 – Bret Tripplett 83 (15), 18 – Mario Clouser 6 (20), 19 – Robbie Standridge 17* (14), 20 – Chris Urish 77U (17), 21 – Brayden Fox 53 (6), 22 – Cory Bruns 42 (10),
