Well John Wood did it again, winning his fourth consecutive ASA OREGON Midwest Truck Tour race at Dells Raceway Park last Saturday night. Nine trucks took to the track for the 35 lap feature event with Todd Lockington and Butch Mierendorf leading the field to the green.
Jerry Wood set fast time with at 13.992, being the only driver to crack into the 19-second bracket. Tom McClintock and John Wood rounded out the top three in qualifying. The feature line-up is determined by the roll of the dice, which was two plus six. With only nine trucks starting, it was almost a complete invert.
It did not take long for John Wood to move from his sixth starting position to take over the lead. The 15K of Dustin Karl had his share of troubles on Saturday and was unable to finish the event after completing only 15 laps and bringing out the caution.
As John Wood continued to lead the field, it was not without some late-race challenges from Tom McClintock who was able to cut into Wood's advantage a couple times on the last lap, but unfortunately was unable to get the job done. The top three qualifiers were also the top three finishers. John and Jerry Wood have finished in the top five of all six events so far. Rounding out the top five were the #27 of Vince Wilkenson and the #85 of Camden Murphy.
The points battle continues to be for the top three spots with John Wood only five points ahead of his brother Jerry and Tom McClintock is only 51 points behind. The ASA OREGON Midwest Truck Tour is headed to Marshfield Speedway this Saturday, August 21st when they once again join the American Speed Association® Kwik Trip Midwest Tour presented by ECHO Outdoor Power Equipment and grandstay.net.
