Wyman wires field for first series triumph

Kansas City, Kansas (September 2, 2016) - Lakeside Speedway has a way of bringing out the unexpected in Lucas Oil MLRA events. Since the 2009 season, there have been 10 races held at the Kansas City, Kansas oval. Including Friday's triumph by JC Wyman, there have been a total of five first time series winners in those 10 races.

Wyman rolled from the outside of the front row and led the entire distance, in a caution-free 40 lap feature, to score the biggest win of his career. The night honored longtime Kansas City racing supporter Clyde Ellis, who was instrumental in Lakeside Speedway among other ventures.

"I'm still kind of speechless," commented Wyman in Andy's Frozen Custard Victory Lane. "With the way the track was, it was a workout The car was great, it would turn, it would come off. It worked out well for me."

Starting 10th, Chase Junghans was the driver to pay attention too during the feature. He quickly worked his way into the top five, and then took his time getting around Terry Phillips for second.

Up front Wyman moved in and out of lapped traffic and Junghans pulled to his back bumper, even showing himself to Wyman with less than five to go. However, Junghans march to the front ended with the runner up position.

"I just had to hit the holes right, and I could get a really good run. His (Wyman's) car was just a little bit better through the rough. We took the last month off and rebuilt the whole thing. We'll just see if we can back it up tomorrow night."

Terry Phillips, Tony Jackson Jr and Justin Asplin made up the balance of the top five finishers.

Saturday attention shifts to Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri for the running of the Larry Phillips Memorial, in conjunction with the Diamond Drag Boat Nationals on Lake Lucas. $5,075 is earmarked for the winner.
