Tulsa, Oklahoma (June 12, 2021) It took veteran driver Jonathan Beason less than five laps to drive from his eighth place starting position to the front of the pack in tonight’s Lucas Oil POWRi West A-main event at Creek County Speedway.
Making a three-wide pass on series veterans Eric Fenton and Michelle Decker to take the lead, once out front Beason set sail and picked up his first POWRi West win of the 2021 season. Behind him, Decker held off a late race challenge from defending series champion Andrew Felker to pick up her first podium finish of the 2021 season, and earn the Realty Connect second place bonus. Felker moved forward from his sixth starting spot to round out the podium, followed by Kyle Jones and Fenton.
In Smith Titanium heat race action, Ryan Padgett was on his way to his first POWRi West heat race win when Beason made a last lap pass to steal it away. Beason’s sixth to first run also earned him the Rod End Supply High Passing Points Award.
Up next for the Lucas Oil POWRi West Midget League presented by Realty Connect will be a trip down the turnpike to I-44 Riverside Speedway on Saturday, June 26th. The last time the series was at I-44 it was Kyle Jones and the Trifecta Motorsports team picking up the win. It will be the series’ fourth visit to I-44 this season.
