Tulsa, Oklahoma (September 24, 2021) The Newcastle, Oklahoma native Trey Marcham made a late race charge to pass Kyle Jones and claim his second win of the Lucas Oil POWRi West Midget League season.
At the drop of the green flag, Marcham, who started seventh for the main event, methodically worked his way through traffic as Jones took the early lead away from Emilio Hoover. Jones paced the field through multiple cautions while Hoover, Andrew Felker, and Hank Davis battled for positions behind him. Hoover brought out the night’s lone red flag after tagging the wall in between turns three and four, collecting Davis.
When racing resumed, Felker and Shannon McQueen traded passes as Marcham continued to work his way forward. With less than five laps to go, Marcham and Jones put on a show, but Marcham prevailed and captured the win. Jones followed in second, with Felker third, McQueen fourth, and Tanner Berryhill earned the Keizer Wheels Hard Charger award, moving from 15th to round out the top five.
POWRi West will be back in action Saturday night at the always exciting I-44 Riverside Speedway in Oklahoma City.
