GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. – Korey Weyant earned his first POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprints victory of the season on Saturday night at Valley Speedway.
Picking up his first win of 2018 after getting by early leader Mitchell Davis and holding off the challenges of Riley Kreisel through different parts of the 25 lapper, Korey Weyant was victorious at the Valley Speedway on Saturday night with the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprints.
Mitchell Davis led the first handful of laps as Weyant moved forward and made his way past the young driver from Auburn, Ill. Also on the move was Riley Kreisel as he would work his way past Davis for the second spot.
Weyant continued to lead as Kreisel ate into his lead lap by lap. In lapped traffic the two put on a great battle for the top spot with Kreisel running the low line and Weyant the top side. This would continue for a few laps until Kreisel’s car popped out of gear allowing Weyant some breathing room.
Kreisel again worked his way back to Weyant when the yellow flag waved for the first time with 20 laps complete for a Chad Tye spin in turn one. With only one lapped car in between himself and Kreisel, Weyant got a great start and as Kreisel went into turn one he went over the bank allowing a large number of cars to get past.
Weyant continued his strong run over the last five laps and picked up his league-best twelfth career win with the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprints in his Tosti’s Transmission/Mahan’s Fiberglass/Weeble’s Bar and Grill Eagle with Automotive Machine power.
Chad Goff made a late run to finish second, with Davis, Kreisel and Wyatt Burks completing the top-five.
