LASALLE, Ill. — Tim Kaeding powered to victory on Friday night at LaSalle Speedway for his sixth World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series victory of the season.

Kaeding started on the pole but had to fend off several drivers’ attempts to knock him off his perch. The field had to endure four attempts to start the event before completing a lap. Kaeding and Aussie James McFadden, who was making his first World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series start of the season, led the field to the green flag each time.

After getting the jump on McFadden, Kaeding had to keep the new track record holder, Paul McMahan, at bay for several laps. McMahan started the night by setting quick time with a 10.330-second lap before a strong run in the feature. McMahan held second for several laps before five-time champion, Donny Schatz, started to make the bottom of the track work and moved up to the second spot. Schatz assaulted Kaeding anytime the pair encountered the slightest bit of traffic, but the Californian would not surrender the lead.

“To be able to beat Donny at any race track is a feat within itself,” Kaeding said. “I’ve got one great crew here with Rob, John and Brandon. We’re gunning for the wins now and we’re just trying to have fun and not doing anything stupid. To be able to run good on the bullrings has been awesome, we struggle a little bit on the half-mile, but I think we’ve got something for them when we get to the big money races in a month or so”
