Show-Me Racing Series: Wheeler Wheels to First LM Win on Show-Me Tour

Series report

HUMBOLDT, Kan. - July 23. In his first time in a race car in nearly two years, Chad Wheeler took the lead late in the Race Brothers A Main Friday at Humboldt Speedway and rolled to his first win in a Late Model race car.

The win looked to be sewn up for Brandon Hunter until his battery started cutting out with two laps to go.

 "Brandon definitely had the car to beat," said Wheeler. "He started coming to me, and I knew I would have to get off the bottom to pass him. We made a lot of adjustments to the car and had luck on our side."

"I'm thankful for the McMurtrie's, giving me a chance to drive again. I always knew I'd get back into racing. I just wasn't sure when. Curt Hutchens and Rick James were both there to help me Friday night. They were a huge part of my success in the past, and I want to thank them too."

For Wheeler this was his second start in the McMurtrie Oil, Greene Operating MasterSbilt. "This is the first time I have ever driven for someone else. TheMcMurtrie's have been great. I've ran well at Humboldt in the past, and we're really just in the right spot at the right time."

LeslieEssary'swinning streak was halted at four, though he finished second. Justin Wells finished third ahead of Rex Merritt and Randy Zimmerman.
