Current point leader, with 1170 points, Jake Neuman finished 3rd in championship points last year and will be attending this weekend’s race in hopes of extending his overall points lead. Cannon McIntosh is 60 points behind Neuman, and is on a hot streak this year, he has won two of the last seven POWRi races he has attended along with five top-fives. McIntosh is ready to take on Charleston Speedway for his first time this weekend, along with Haubstadt. Charleston Speedway is going to be a new track to a lot of our drivers.
POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League’s championship quest continues to heat up with five features in the history-books for the 2020 season. Currently, defending champion #91 Riley Kreisel, from Warsaw, MO. appears to have momentum, separating himself from the field with back-to-back feature victories and gaining the top spot in the season standings. Jack Wagner #77 of Lone Jack, MO., stays close to the top of the leaderboard, only twenty points back from Kreisel. Wagner has proven consistency with two straight runner-up placings and continually running within the top-ten. Race-one winner and Auburn, IL. Resident, Mario Clouser #6 rounds out the podium placement for the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprint League, heading into a two-day point weekend of racing.
