Warf won against a strong 15 car turnout on the historic quarter-mile paved oval, now in its 68th year of competition. The victory further establishes the Rex Hutchison-powered Beast Chassis as one of the strongest cars and teams in the sport. Glenn’s son Dylan drove the car in the season opener at Madera en route to a third place finish, but has been on an extended hiatus due to an injury unrelated to racing. Combined with Warf’s two King of the Wing-sanctioned victories, the team now ranks second in the Western King of the Wing owners points.
Warf qualified sixth with an 11.995 second lap on another Stockton race where track records were shattered at the top of the grid. He picked up his first heat race win for Hutchison which set him up for the second heat race. He won the heat race over recent King of the Wing Northwest Swing champion and Western points leader Eric Humphries.
Starting on the pole for the 30 lap feature, Warf would have to fend off numerous challenges. He held off a late charging Humphries along with Davey Hamilton, Jr. to lead all 30 laps for the big $2000 win. The win moves Warf up to sixth in drivers points and has Glenn Hutchison Racing only two points behind Humphries’ STE Racing in owners points with a slew of races in October left to run for the King of the Wing Western division.
Along with two King of the Wing Western win, Warf has a win and a second place effort in his two starts in the MAVTV-televised Madera Western Super Sprints. The series last competed on July 9th as part of the Gerhardt Memorial. Warf qualified third and also ran third in his heat race.
His fortunes improved in the 30 lap feature as he found half a second from qualifying and took over the lead from Tom Baker on the second lap of the race. He held off the race’s namesake Cody Gerhardt until lap 26 and ripped across the stripe in second position at the finish.
