Tulsa, OK (08/28/2021) Oklahoma’s own Trey Marcham returned to Lucas Oil POWRi West Midget League presented by Realty Connect victory lane tonight at his old stomping grounds, I-44 Riverside Speedway in Oklahoma City. If there is one driver that knows his way around this the tricky surface, Marcham is that racer. Marcham has numerous micro sprint and POWRi West midget laps here, and tends to always be a front runner when the midgets roll into town.
Jumping out to the early lead, Cannon McIntosh would show the way until mechanical issues sent him to the work area on lap 11 of the 25-lap A-main event. McIntosh’s misfortune turned the field over to last night’s winner, Kyle Jones, who then lead until a flat right rear tire sent him to work area on lap 16. Marcham inherited the lead on this caution and set sail earning his first POWRi West win of the 2021 season. Following Marcham was second place Realty Connect bonus award winner Andrew Felker with Rod End Supply Hard Charger Michelle Decker rounding out the podium. Cannon McIntosh recovered from his issues to finish fourth, with Shannon McQueen rounding out the top five.
