FAIRBURY, IL (June 5, 2018) - Landon Simon was the victor Tuesday night at the Fairbury American Legion Speedway in Fairbury, Illinois with the POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Wildcard Sprint League. It was his first WAR win of the 2018 season as he won multiple WAR races in 2017. Thomas Meseraull (2nd) and Mitch Wissmiller (3rd) completed the podium.
After earning the LRB Inc. "High Point Man" award from his stellar heat race performance, Simon pulled the ace for the redraw which left him to start on the pole of the 25-lap feature event. Once the green flag dropped at "FALS" for the WAR Sprints, Mitch Wissmiller would assume the lead by utilizing the bottom groove. He would remain in a comfortable lead until halfway through the race when the top groove started to come in and Landon Simon would take over the lead railing around the top of the high banked, ¼ mile track. Meseraull would also get around Wissmiller on the high side.
The final laps left Simon and Meseraull banging the cushion fighting for the $2,000 payday, but Simon would prevail as he rocketed toward his 3rd WAR win of his career.
The POWRi Lucas Oil WAR Wildcard Sprints are back in action Friday, June 8 at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Illinois followed by Saturday night, June 9 at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Indiana for a co-sanctioned event with MSCS.
