SPOON RIVER, Ill. — Paul Nienhiser won his second Built Ford Tough MOWA Sprint Car Series Delivered by Morrow Brothers Ford feature in as many nights Saturday night at Spoon River Speedway.

Nienhiser used his third-place starting position to his advantage tonight, working his way to the front ahead of front-row starters Dustin Barks and Steve Short.

Nienhiser won Friday night’s MOWA feature at Iowa’s Lee County Speedway.

“I felt that we had a really good car here tonight. We were able to pick up right where we left off last year, here at (Spoon River), as we won our last MOWA race back in September. It’s a really good feeling to go home after tonight, sweeping the weekend,” said Nienhiser.

Second-starting Short held onto his position for most of the feature and was able to record a second-place finish for his first race in Spoon River in at least 15 years.

Kyle Schuett scored his first career podium finish in a sprint car with his third-place run at Spoon River. Schuett was followed to the line by Jordan Goldesberry and Jim Moughan, who finished fifth.

The finish:

1 – Paul Nienhiser 9X (5), 2 – Steve Short 8S (8), 3 – Kyle Schuett 9K (9), 4 – Jordan Goldesberry 65 (2), 5 – Jim Moughan 1M (1), 6 – Jason Keith 28 (7), 7 – Jacob Patton 79J (3), 8 – Jeremy Standridge 10S (13), 9 – Logan Faucon 52F (4), 10 – Jake Neuman 6A (12), 11 – Brinton Marvel 21 (18), 12 – Justin Standridge 01 (17), 13 – Cory Bruns 44 (14), 14 – Brayton Lynch 29X (19), 15 – Dylan Tuxhorn 9T (15), 16 – George Crawford 57 (16), 17 – Dustin Barks 22 (6), 18 – Ryan Bunton 6R (11), 19 – Austin Archdale 2A (20), 20 – Terry Babb 47 (10), 21 – John Parker 82 (21),
