Nineteen year-old rookie Christopher Bell of Norman, Okla., held off Daryn Pittman and Donny Schatz to earn the first World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victory of his career on Wednesday night in the series’ first appearance at quarter-mile Jacksonville Speedway before a overflow crowd. On one of the smallest, most unique venues the Outlaws will see this season, Bell was masterful as he weaved through constant traffic after getting the jump on the initial green flag in the 40-lap A-main at Jacksonville’s quarter-mile oval.

The only thing Ian Madsen didn’t win Friday was the Midwest Open Wheel Association Sprint Car Series presented by Casey’s General Stores Dash and the $200 he could have pocketed for taking the re-draw challenge before he drew the six invert pill for the event.Outside of that sequence, Madsen was nearly untouchable en route to his third career MOWA Sprint Car Series. This one coming on a very fast 1/4 mile at Lincoln Speedway. Madsen and Jimmy Hurley each picked up a heat race win, while the invert drawn by Madsen before the dash put Jeremy Standridge on the front row of the six lap event. Standridge would hold on to pick up the first MOWA dash win of his career, as he celebrated his birthday at the track with family and friends.

Twenty eight year old Winn, Michigan Expert Pro TT rider Henry Wiles has become the new fan favorite in Peoria, Illinois, as he’s been the clear-cut winner for ninet straight years (breaking Chris Carr’s record of eight) as he continues his dominance at historic PMC Race Park. Wiles had to start in the third row of the 25 lap main event. Second and third place finishers, Brad Baker and JD Beach made several attempts at closing the gap during the race, but unfortunately for them, Wiles never gave an inch and diminished any hope they might have had in catching him. Shaun Russell and Briar Bauman rounded out the top five in the Expert Pro main event. Rodney Spencer Jr. won the Pro Singles race for his first win as Dan Bromley was second followed by Justin Jones. Brad Baker took a $1,000 prize for winning the Dash-for-Cash race.
