CALIFORNIA, Mo. (May 28, 2017) — Getting his first ASCS sanctioned victory of the 2017 season, Sedalia’s Jonathan Cornell made it career win No. 32 with the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps at Double X Speedway in the annual Tribute to Jesse and Daniel.

Going from the outer lane of the front row, Cornell never relinquished the lead during Saturday’s 25 lap A-Feature with the runner-up spot going to Kyle Bellm, who came through the field from the eighth starting spot. Lexington’s Brad Ryun was bronze on the finish. Fourth went to Taylor Walton and fifth to Cody Baker.

Baker would end up in Victory Lane on Saturday night in a special Non-Wing feature event put up by the Hockett family.

Evan Martin crossed sixth with Corey Nelson seventh. Taking the challenge to drop to the tail of the A-Main, Randy Martin made it back to eight from 20th; right where the California, Mo. native was scheduled to start originally. Miles Paulus from 17th was ninth with Tyler Black also charging hard from 18th to tenth.

The Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps is back in action on Saturday, June 3 at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo. The race is a make-up for the original May 27 date being rained out.
