Racing Series: Wells Puts Exclamation
Point On Series Title In Tri-State
POCOLA, Okla. - Oct. 16. Two-time and defending Race Brothers
Farm and Home Supply Show Me Racing Series Champion Justin Wells of Aurora, Missouri led all 25 laps enroute
to a $1,000 payday at Tri-State Speedway, and in the process wrapped up this third Show Me Racing Series
Previously Wells has picked up the inaugural title in 2004, and
then again in 2009. Wells, a former two-time IMCA National Champion, also claimed eight feature wins
this season and now has 31 career victories overall.
Larry Campbell of Van Buren, Arkansas had accumulated the most
passing points through the heat races, but after the top eight redraw, found himself starting outside
front row. Campbell spent the entire race trying to track down Wells, but ultimately settled for
second. Randy Zimmerman of Ft. Scott, Kansas, finished third and Ken Essary of Cape Fair, Missouri
and Colton Dunlap of Muskogee, Oklahoma rounded out the top five. Dunlap also secures the 2010 Rookie
of the Year title with his top five finish.
The Banquet will be held Sunday, November 7, 2010 in Monett,
Missouri at the city park. Details will be available on the website soon.
