Burks Goes Strong at USAC Sprint Car National Championship Events (05/12/22 + 05/14/22)
The nation’s best Sprint Car racers went head-to-head twice this weekend as part of the USAC AMSOIL Sprint Car National Championship Series held at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas (May 12) and I-70 Motorsports Park in Missouri (May 14). 2020 MWRA Champ Wyatt Burks with his Smith & Loveless Wingless 410 11w – and ranked among the U. S. top 30 drivers — held his own each night and continued to improve upon his lap speed on the season. At Lakeside, Burks won his heat race going away, beating out past 2x Series Champion Robert Ballou, and qualifying for a 10th place start in the Feature. On Saturday, Burks qualified for the feature again by winning the Semi-feature race, throttling the field by nearly 9 seconds! With a placement of 16th and not much opportunity to advance Burks ran a conservative feature, setting himself up for the next few weekends. Even still, he finished in the money both nights and secured his place among the top drivers in the country. Up Next: POWRi Sprint Car action at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Missouri, on May 27-28.
