The Winged Sprint Cars Make Their 2018 Debut at Meridian Speedway
Winged Sprintcars made their 2018 debut at Meridian speedway over the weekend and the feature race was a thirty lap main event to close Saturday night’s action.
The methanol burning racers, with wings to keep them on the track can reach speeds of early 100 mph on the quarter mile oval.
Aaron McPeak jumped to the early lead but as expected Bryan Warf would not be held off for long. Warf pinned his sprinter to the high side and worked to the front and to the lead in eight short laps.
By lap ten Warf held the top spot on the Pepsi-Cola scoreboard, with fellow Meridian, Idaho racer Colton Nelson in the second position.
Next to find clean air was Sierra Giesler, who shook free of the pack on lap sixteen and began to close on the leaders.
What was a five second deficit for Giesler quickly closed to less than two as she continued to charge forward but when all was said and done, Warf held on to win the main event followed by Nelson and Giesler in third.
