WOFFORD USES LAPPED TRAFFIC TO TAKE WIN AT CENTRAL ARIZONA RACEWAY
The pair of Kyle McCutcheon and Billy Chester III led the Sprint Car field to the green flag. McCutcheon and Chester fought for the lead with McCutcheon taking off leaving Chester to fight with Lorne Wofford for second. As the laps clicked off, McCutcheon seemed to be well on his way to the feature win, before lady luck struck her ugly face with a caution flag with just a couple laps remaining. McCutcheon had lost his brakes so he wasn’t able to get to the line he wanted, and coming for the white flag, Wofford snuck by. Wofford led the final lap with McCutcheon a close second. Rick Ziehl finished third ahead of Joshua Williams and Chester. Wofford and Perry McMillan claimed the heat races.
Justin Murphy and Ryan Irish led the Dwarf Car field to the start of their feature event. Irish grabbed the lead and started to hide out front while Brian Stehr and Ryan Henesey worked their way up from row 6. Irish eventually had the mirror of his Blue Sedan filled with various colors of cars and eventually Stehr got by and cruised to another feature win. Henesey was second over Dino Soto, Greg Loper and Irish. Henesey, Loper and Stehr took the Heat Race wins.
Colton Hardy and Dave Van Ess were the front row for the Mini Sprint feature with Hardy getting the early lead. Hardy had his hands full of Chad Fife and Dustin Cormany. A late-race caution bunched up the field and Fife jumped the first attempt at a restart. Hardy and Cormany battled at the next attempt and Hardy hung on for the narrow win. Hardy was second over Joe Scheopne, Chad Fife and Joe Pritts. Fife and Hardy won the heat races while Pritts won his first career race with the trophy dash win.
