Burks Masters Midway
Lebanon, Mo. – Making his second ever start with the WAR Series presented by Impact Signs, Awnings, and Wraps, Wyatt Burks picked up his first career win on Saturday night at Lebanon Midway Speedway.
Burks and Chris Parkinson led the field to the green flag with Burks getting out front early to lead lap one. Adam Jones worked his way past Parkinson to move into second on lap two and a lap later Jones was putting heavy pressure on Burks for the top spot. The lead duo would continue this way for the next couple of laps with Jones moving past Burks in turn three on the fifth lap.
Over the next few laps, the lead duo would swap the top spot in each corner with Jones leading narrowly at the flagstand. Behind them, Parkinson, Mitchell Moore, and Devon Huff had a good battle for the third position.
On lap 16, Burks was able to make a pass of Jones in turn one and two to take the lead back.
On lap 23, Parkinson moved past Jones with Chad Goff also moving by from his 10th starting position into third. Burks drove flawlessly over the last couple of laps to take his first career win in the family-owned Maxim with Trondson power and sponsorship help from Industrial Maintenance Inc. and Kansas Powertrain.
“I would like to thank my mom and dad and my uncle Donnie Clausen for this win,” said Burks.
