By Chad Buford – GRAIN VALLEY, MO (May 4, 2018) – Continuing the momentum from his first career win last weekend in Eldon, MO, Riley Kreisel picked up his second career win at Valley Speedway on Friday night with the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprints. The freshly turned eighteen-year-old has been victorious at Valley Speedway in a midget multiple times, but this was his first trip to victory lane in a sprint car.

Joe B. Miller led early as he battled with Terry Richards and Slater Helt. Richards took over the lead fiercely and led confidently until Kreisel made his charge toward the front. Kreisel, who started tenth, quickly moved to the lead and took command from Richards on lap eight. Kreisel set a hectic pace as the action was hot and heavy behind him.

Kreisel was the class of the field in his Smith Motorsports/Weather Tech Renovations/Certain Teed XXX with Engine Connection power. Richards ran second in his C&L:Automotive/Riha Lawn Mechanix XXX with Spanel power. TJ Artz picked up a career best third in his Carpet Land/Tecumseh Animal Care Speedway Motors-powered Eagle. Running fourth was Zach Daum with Quinton Benson rounding out the top five. Helt ran sixth as he was followed by Miller in seventh. Rounding out the top ten were Cannon McIntosh, Chris Parkinson, and Korey Weyant.

The POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Sprints are back in action on Saturday, May 5th at the Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, MO.
