Wells Steps Out Again at Monett Show-Me Stop

MONETT, Mo. - April 11.  Two-time and defending Race Brothers Farm and Home Supply Show Me Racing Series Champion Justin Wells of Aurora, Mo., followed up his dominating performance at Tri-State Speedway last weekend by leading all 25 laps at Monett Speedway Sunday.  

Wells had accumulated enough passing points from his heat race to start third in the feature, but after the top eight re-draw, Wells found himself on the pole and was unchallenged in the feature race and has increased his total series wins to 25 and is now tied for the all-time series wins with Leslie Essary.

Series founder Ken Essary of Cape Fair, Mo., started sixth and took over the second spot on lap six and held on to finish second. Larry Campbell of Van Buren, Ark., started fifth and had worked his way up to second place before giving up the position to Essary.

Scott Fry of Exeter, Mo., started seventh after the re-draw, finished fifth and that is where he raced and finished in the final rundown. Darrell Mooneyham of Verona, Mo., in his 39th year of racing, started ninth and finished fifth.
