California, MO — (June 7, 2015) — Returning from racing on the west coast, Jonathan Cornell picked up victory number two of the 2015 season at Double-X in the Winged Sprint Car division. With heat race victors Josh Fisher and Cornell starting on the front row, Cornell won the drag race into turn one at the drop of the green and would hold the point for the duration of the event. Fisher gave chase but got into the backstretch wall trying to avoid a spinning car, ending his night. The restart saw Cornell leading Evan Martin and Tyer Blank. Martin would settle into second and Blank into third until turn one would bite Balnk as well and he retired to the pit area with steering damage. Following Cornell under the checkered flags would be Evan Martin in second, one spot better than his dad Randy Martin, who finished third, Ricky Stangl was fourth and Taylor Walton completed the top five.
