Belleville, IL. (6/22/22) Zach Daum would hold steady on the low line in the Charleston Speedway feature event with the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League “Wildcard Series in the twenty-five-lap shootout.
Resurrecting the series would witness Kyle Shipley clock top-time with a 13.008-lap as heat racing action would witness Shane Cockrum and Kyle Shipley each earn an early competition victory.
Soaring into the initial start would see high-point qualifier and pole-sitter Parker Fredrickson battle outside front-row starter, Shane Cockrum, on the first lap with contact between the front runners bringing out the first caution of the feature.
Finding speed from restarting out front, Zach Daum would hold off an all-race charge from second-place finisher Mitch Wissmiller in an outstanding technical track. Wissmiller would get run after run on Daum for the front of the field but would avoid contact with the leader in clean and close quarters.
“I’m usually not very good in the slick but I was protecting the front, If someone was going to pass me, they were going to have to move me,” said a pleased Zach Daum in the Charleston Speedway winner’s circle.
Hard-charging through the field would find Ricky Lewis placing third past Garrett Aitken to finish fourth with Shane Cockrum rebounding from a lap-one incident to round out the top-five finishers for the Lucas Oil POWRi WAR Sprint League “Wildcard Series” feature event.
