27, 2022) Wendell Wallace claimed his first feature win of
the young 2022 racing season on Saturday evening, March 26 in the finale
of the annual 'Arkansas Spring Nationals' at the nearby Batesville Motor
Speedway in Locust Grove, Arkansas! Behind the wheel of his #6M IMCA
Modified, Wendell won his heat race from the fourth starting spot and
later grabbed the point near the halfway mark of the 30-lap feature.
At the checkers, the National Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer had recorded
the $1,500 top prize over a top five that consisted of runner-up Rusty
Jeffrey, Drake Findley, Brandon Smith, and Jeff Taylor!
Earlier in the tripleheader weekend, which was condensed
into only two days due to rain, Wendell competed for two additional
$1,500 winner's checks. On Friday night during his season opener, the
Batesville, Arkansas native placed third in his heat race, but distributor
issues prior to the drop of the green flag in the feature forced him
out of the contest. At BMS on Saturday afternoon, Wendell ran second
in his heat race prior to knocking down an eighth place performance
in the A-Main. Complete results from the 'Arkansas Spring Nationals'
