LIMA — The first of three Non Wing Sprint Car races this year at Limaland Motorsports Park was held Friday night with No. 24 Landon Simon grabbing the Non Wing Sprint Car feature win, No. 463 Daniel Sanchez picking up his second straight Bud Thunderstock win, and No. 3W Dylan Woodling winning the K&N Filters UMP Modified feature.
Starting the night were the Non Wing Sprint Cars in a 25 lap feature event. No. 33M Matt Westfall and No. 18 Dallas Hewitt brought the field to green with Westfall grabbing the early advantage. Simon moved to second on lap 14, then stalked Westfall until making his move to the lead on lap 18. Heat races were won by No. 2DI Dustin Ingle, Dustin Smith, and Dallas Hewitt.
Next up were the Budweiser Thunderstocks in a 15 lap A Main. No. 7 Dan Wooten, and No. J2 Rob Trent led the field to the green flag with those two battling side by side for the first three circuits. Wooten would gain the advantage with Trent 2nd, No 26 Justin Long, and No. 82 Chris Douglas in tow. The yellow flag would wave on lap 7 and again on lap 8 for debris, on the lap 8 restart, No. 463 Daniel Sanchez charged to lead with Dan Wooten slowing dramatically at the font of the field, collecting the No. 26 of Long, and ending both of their nights. Sanchez pulled away on a lap eight restart following a yellow for debris. Rob Trent challengde Sanchez on a later restart, but Sanchez would be too fast on this night. Heat races were won by Douglas and No. 22T Tony Anderson.
Wrapping up the night were the K&N Filters UMP Modifieds in a 20 lap feature. UNOH Racer Brendan Rassel in the UNOH No. 1 led the field to green alongside No. 16 Jeff Koz. Woodling built momentum following a restart and threw a huge slide job on Koz, but Koz crossed over and battled back before slowing a lap later with a flat left rear tire. Woodling then led to the finish. Heat races were won by No. 11H Mike Hohlbein, No. ZER0 Brent Hole, Koz and Rassel.
