Wigent Stronger Than the Wind in Chicago, Holds Off Malone in Late Shootout
Joliett, IL - A week removed from disappointment as Sam Wade once again stole the show in Hollywood, pulling the rug out from Pacey Wigent at Auto Club. On this day, Wigent carried his momentum from California and immediately flexed his muscled on the unique mile and a half just down wind of Chicago. Leading the most laps, and having arguably the dominant truck on the day, Wigent held off challenge after challenge late as cautions kept the field bunched, and emerged victorious for the first time this season.
The races opening stages brought forward some fantastic racing even from a sparse field of 8, after Dennis Boggess was forced to retire after the races second caution. Irregardless of the pack size, hard battles formed most of the day amongst the lead pack. Wigent along with Dylan Malone and Ryan Lewis traded the top spot numerous times in the opening stage following the 1st caution of the day. Yet strategy would play its hand, as Aaron Dukes would opt for the late two tire stop to put himself over 5 seconds up on the leaders after pit stops cycled through. Though Wigent and Malone were going to make for a close finish at stage end, Boggess would careen off the outside wall ahead of Dukes to bring the stage to an end, and Dukes his first stage win of the season.
Malone looked to be the man of caution free second stage, leading a majority of the stage even through heavy pressure from behind. Wigent, Dukes, and Lewis fought ruthlessly for 2nd before Wigent eventually made his way up and around Malone for the top spot. Sam Wade, Tyler Starcher, and Dewayne Anthony did end up catching the lead pack but at pit stops loomed, older tires soon spread the field out. Green flag stops saw a black flag for the 99 of Dukes, as Malone and Wigent came out together fighting for the lead through the final laps. Malone would prevail however after a misstep with the apron gave the 93 some much needed breathing room, and his first stage win of the season.
The races final stage brought added intensity, as well as added cautions. Four in total, after the first half of the stage went green. With the pack condensed, mistakes were magnified. However, Wigent proved to be at his best, only giving up the lead when his pit crew seemed to let him down under yellow. Even playing from behind, Wigent would waste no time picking his way back up into the lead. Malone seemed to be one of the few who could give the 52 Chevy a real run for his money, finding himself on the rear bumper of Wigent in the final laps, he would be unable to unseat the 52, having to settle for 2nd, as Wigent would lay claim to victory notching his first win of the new season. Lewis would finish the day 3rd just behind Malone and Wigent. As a door to door battle for 4th saw Sam Wade turn his momentum from last weeks win, into another top 5. On the losing end of the battle would be Aaron Dukes rounding out the top 5.
Wigents' win sees the 52 team stretch out an early championship lead over everyone, holding a steep 18 point advantage after just 2 races. Trying to keep the 52 in sight is the 27 team and Sam Wade. Picking up a much needed top 5 to go with his season opening win, as well bonus points that already have him nearly matching his season total from a year ago, Wade is looking good through 2 races. Hot on the heels of Wade is Ryan Lewis with back to back podiums keeping him 3rd in points, just 5 points behind the 27 team. Dylan Malones' strong runner up finish sees the 93 team rocket through the standings to 4th, as Dewayne Anthony in his first season with ORS sits 5th in points after a good showing through the first 2 races. Short track racing begins in week 3 with Iowa the first of four short tracks on the docket this season.
