WHEATLAND, Mo. — Kyle Cummins scored a dominant victory in the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprints feature Saturday night at Lucas Oil Speedway, leading all 30 laps to earn $3,077.

Cummins withstood a challenge on a restart following a lap-17 red flag to earn the win. He remains in contention for the $20,000 Bell Helmet Challenge, having won two of the first three legs of the series of races. A win at Fairbury on Oct. 6 would mean $20,000.

Cummins said the lengthy drive from Indiana — after watching the first night of the Hockett-McMillin Memorial on LucasOilRacing.TV — was worth it. The victory was his third on the POWRi War Series.

“The facility, Lucas Oil, it’s unbelievable,” Cummins said. “The first night, I watched for home and we came here and I was hoping it wouldn’t get super slick like that. The top is where I wanted to run, but the bottom was so good.

“We spent a lot of time working on this thing and it was a pretty good drive to get out there.”

Wyatt Burks finished second with Colton Cottle third and Landon Simon fourth.

“We were just too tight,” said Burks, who moved into second with five laps to go. “The front ankle got bent a little earlier in the race.”

The finish:

Kyle Cummings, Wyatt Burks, Colten Cottle, Landon Simon, Anthony Nicholson, Chris Phillips, Brandon Mattox, Thomas Meseraull, Clinton Boyles, Zach Daum, Mario Clauser, Andrew Deal, Ty Hulsey, Tyler Thomas, Terry Richards, Chad Goff, Paul White, Chris Parkinson, Wesley Smith, Riley Kreisel, Slater Helt, Mitchell Davis, Matt Moore, Korey Weyant, Danny Smith, Kyle Clark, Quinton Benson.
