CALIFORNIA, Mo. — (July 24, 2016) — He won it before, and he’s won it again, Jonathan Cornell is seemingly unstoppable at the Double X Speedway, this time taking the win in the 14th annual Clyde Wood Memorial with the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps.
Podium finish No. 10 on the season, the win counts as Cornell’s 30th overall triumph with the Missouri based region of the American Sprint Car Series.
No easy task to claim this year’s $2,500 top prize, the Kiowa Line Builders No. 28 rolled off eighth in the 22 car field while California’s Randy Martin rolled from outside the front row into the lead on the start over Wyatt Burks.
With the race moving into the final stages, Cornell had advanced through the running order with Martin as his next target. The No. 28 raced to the point on the 19th trip around the quarter-mile for victory No. 5 on the season with the Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps.
When it was all said and done, Randy Martin crossed second with Josh Baughman taking the show position. Tony Bruce, Jr. raced to a fourth place showing with Tyler Blank charging from 16th to complete the top-five.
Jay Russell was sixth, followed by Austin Alumbaugh. From 17th to eighth came Corey Nelson. Evan Martin and Lanny Carpenter made up the top-ten.
Special thanks goes out to Hollywood Blasting and Coatings, Impact Signs, Midwest Speed Shop, and Xtreme Body and Paint and everyone who came to be a part of the 14th annual Clyde Wood Memorial at the Double X Speedway.
The Speedway Motors ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps takes on the Missouri State Fair Speedway next on Thursday, July 28. The mid-week affair will serve as a warm up to the $15,000 to win High Roller Classic on Sunday, August 21 at the “Historic Half-Mile”.
