Early on-track excitement with twenty-five entries the POWRi National and West Midget Leagues would find Gavin Miller starting the action off with a quick time in hot lap sessions with a 13.531-second lap as Ryan Timms, Zach Daum, and Taylor Reimer each would earn heat racing wins.
Forming the feature field would find high-point qualifier Ryan Timms and Hayden Reinbold making the front row as the green flag flew would see Ryan Timms gain the initial advantage on the opening laps over Hayden Reinbold, Shannon McQueen, Zach Daum, and Taylor Reimer all racing inside the top five.
Cruising to a comfortable lead, Ryan Timms would continue to show the way while dealing with lap traffic with laps ticking away at a rapid rate as Zach Daum and Taylor Reimer maintained solid efforts inside the top three with Jade Avedisian, Cannon McIntosh, and Karter Sarff sneaking around the front-running spots.
Holding steady up front late, Ryan Timms would not be denied in the feature event to earn his first feature win of 2023 with the POWRi National Midget League as Jade Avedisian would fly into finish runner-up with a huge last lap run past Zach Daum that finalized the podium placements.
“I could see the bottom had grip at the beginning of the race but with the freshly tilled top I knew it would have a bunch of speed up there so I stayed committed until I started to smell the rubber and moved low,” said Ryan Timms in the Creek County Speedway victory lane celebrations. Adding, “I’m really happy with how much speed we showed to start the week and put this car in victory lane.”
Hard-charging past twelve other competitors would witness Cannon McIntosh finishing fourth as Gavin Miller rounding out the POWRi National and West Midget League top-five finishers at Creek County Speedway running for the Sooner State Showdown.
