Belleville, IL. (7/23/22) Mario Clouser would use a high-side hustle to precision with the Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League at Lake Ozark Speedway for Night Two of the Beach Brawl Weekend to earn his twelfth career League feature victory.

Early on track accomplishments would witness Mario Clouser clock top-time in hot laps with a 14.023-second-lap as Jack Wagner and Zach Daum would each earn a heat race competition victory.

Soaring into the initial start would see the high-point qualifier and pole-sitting Mario Clouser battle front-row companion Jack Wagner into the first pair of corners with Clouser earning the early lead the first few laps by using a fast but tricky high-line.

Slicing and dicing through the field with multiple lines of racing throughout the field would witness several drivers all attempt to run down the speedy Clouser as Zach Daum, Steven Russell, Quinton Benson, and Kory Schudy would all make runs at the front.

Finding the fastest running line in the caution-free feature, Mario Clouser would grab the front of the field and hold on to the lead to notch his first win this season within POWRi WAR as Zach Daum would wheel his way to a solid runner-up placement with a low-line running Anthony Nicholson placing in the final podium position.

Maintaining a solid showing all night Steven Russell would hold steady to finish fourth as Wesley Smith hard-charged his way to round out the top-five finishers for the Lucas Oil POWRi WAR Sprint League feature event for Night Two of the Beach Brawl at Lake Ozark Speedway.
