(September 2, 2013)
Wendell Wallace and his #6m Super Late Model team traveled to the
Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Missouri and the Monett Speedway
in Monett, Missouri on August 31 and September 1 for a pair of high-profile
shows. On Saturday night at Wheatland, the 'MLRA Fall Shootout'
paid $3,000 to the winner. Wendell won his heat race in preliminary
action and later started the 40-lapper from the inside of the second
row. After running much of the race inside of the top five, Wendell
unfortunately slipped high in turns one and two late in the 'MLRA
Fall Shootout' and wound up eleventh in the final finishing order.
At Monett on Sunday evening, the MARS DIRTcar Series
roared into town to preside over the 43rd Annual '4-State Dirt Track
Championship.' Wendell once again scored the win during his heat
race and later posted a solid effort in the $4,000 to win feature
event. The Batesville, Arkansas star crossed underneath the checkers
fourth to finish behind only race winner Terry Phillips, Tony Jackson,
Jr., and Jesse Stovall. Complete results from both Labor Day weekend
programs can be accessed online at www.dirtondirt.com.
