Wesley Smith Wheels POWRi WAR Win on Night Two of the Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Wesley Smith Wheels POWRi WAR Win on Night Two of the Hockett/McMillin Memorial

Belleville, IL. (9/17/21) Back for another adventurous night of open-wheel action at Lucas Oil Speedway for Night Two of the 11th Annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial, a determined field of sixty-one Lucas Oil POWRi Wingless Auto Racing Sprint League drivers would invade Wheatland Missouri with side-by-side racing aplenty. Leading every lap of the twenty-five-lap main event would find Nixa, Missouri wheelman Wesley Smith claiming the night and notching his fifth series win of 2021.

Early heat racing action would see Blake Vermillion, Samuel Wagner, Zach Clark, Justin Zimmerman, Anthony Nicholson, Wesley Smith, and Cody Baker all claim heat racing victories, with Jesse Vermillion racing from ninth to second in his heat race to earn the night’s High-Point qualifier accolades and a feature pole-starting position. Kory Schudy, Keith Martin, Wyatt Burks, and Zach Daum would each win their respective B-Feature.

Green-flag feature racing would find Jesse Vermillion and Wesley Smith leading the pack of twenty-three eager Lucas Oil POWRi WAR competitors to the initial green flag start with Smith shooting to the lead by using high-side momentum.

Smith would continue out-front throughout a pair of early restarts as hard elbows-up racing developed throughout the pack with Cody Baker racing his way into a runner-up position. With Smith leading and Baker charging quickly the laps would start to dwindle when entering the first corner on the twenty-second lap Smith would appear to lose water with a steam cloud erupting from the car. With Baker closing in on the lead he would slide high, running into the cushion, and flipping once taking him from the competition with Cody Baker okay but visibly upset at the circumstances.

Wesley Smith would continue his dominant run after the unexpected turn of events to maintain the front for the remainder of the race-winning his ninth career POWRi WAR feature event. Driving into the runner-up finishing position would find the clinching Rookie of the Year driver Xavier Doney with Jack Wagner racing his way to third from starting seventh.

Hard-charging his way through the field would find Justin Zimmerman finishing fourth from starting way back in twenty-first with point leader Mario Clouser would round out the top-five finishers for POWRi WAR at Lucas Oil Speedway’s Night Two of the 11th Annual Jesse Hockett/Daniel McMillin Memorial.

“This is truly a testament to this team, with the win on the line I didn’t hesitate to push it hard after the red. I know they can fix everything I break so I can drive this car hard, and I hope this win is a sign of things to come for the rest of the weekend” said a victorious Wesley Smith in post-race ceremonies. Adding “I was bouncing the wheel off the ledge the wing cars put up for us, this track was hammer down around the top and a lot of fun.”
