He steered his RSD Enterprises Rocket car past Tim McCreadie of Watertown, N.Y., for the lead on lap 73 and went on to cross the finish line 1.007 seconds ahead of Union, Ky.’s Lanigan, who settled for a runner-up finish in the Firecracker 100 for the third consecutive year behind the wheel of his Rocket car. 1) Clanton  2) Lanigan  3) Jimmy Mars  4) McCreadie  5) Dale McDowell

WoO SPRINT CARS - Brooke Tatnell certainly doesn't have the largest hauler in the pit area or the most parts in his trailer, but what he does have is determination, an unending work ethic and a passion for sprint car racing that is second to none. That all showed on Friday night as he scored his second World of Outlaws win of the season as the series made their debut at Junction Motor Speedway in McCool Junction, Nebraska in front of the largest crowd in track history.

Tatnell used a slide job on Jason Meyers on the 16th lap in turns three and four to take the lead and would pace the remainder of the 25-lap contest. The $10,000 win was the 11th of his World of Outlaws career.

WoO SPRINT CARS - Steve Kinser certainly has been the most consistent driver this year with the World of Outlaws, scoring Top-10 finishes in all but two events, as he chases his record 21st title. Heading into the series return to Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, he had competed nine times at the half-mile over the years and finished in the Top-Five in each and every race. He extended that streak by winning over Jac Haudenschild and Sammy Swindell on Saturday night to pick up his fourth victory of the season and the 556th of his amazing World of Outlaws career before a huge crowd.
