Back to Back for Warner

By Ken de la Bastide

(May 7, 2012) – 
Nick Warner is showing why he’s won multiple championships in Front Wheel Drive Figure-8 action over the years at Anderson Speedway.

Warner won his second consecutive International Outlaw Figure-8 feature for the Front Wheel Drive division on Saturday and recorded his third consecutive win in the division.

Although Warner has won three features in a row, he is being strongly challenged by Elliott McKinney each weekend.

Warner led all 15 laps of the feature by opening a comfortable lead over Mike Alley and McKinney, who was the fast qualifier.

McKinney worked the entire race to get around Alley to challenge for the win, but to no avail. At the finish it was Warner, Alley, McKinney Donnie Ellis Jr. and Kevin Henson rounding out the top five.

In the first of two heat race, Warner again led the entire race distance in recording the victory with Ellis in pursuit and Alley running third. McKinney slowed during the heat race while running fourth.

Kevin Henson won the second heat race passing Harry Lashure on the second lap entering turn one. Rickie Craig passed Lashure on lap five on the front straight to claim the second position. Lashure, Trevin Henson and David Powell rounded out the top five.
