Mellott Wins at Hesston SaturdayNewsPhoto


In sprint action it was Rob Mellott who took the lead at the start with Tom Worrick second and Roger Irvine third. The race saw its share of cautions with three flying in the first four laps before a red waved for a wild flip by DJ Holland. He wasn’t hurt but the car suffered major damage.
On the restart Mellott continued to lead with Worrick a close second, then on lap nine, Worrick worked to the outside and took the lead off the fourth turn. He set the pace for three laps before Mellott regained the lead again and was able to hold Worrick at bay for his first win of the season. Worrick was second, Irvine held on to third, Ryan Lynn was fourth and Dusty Shatzer was fifth. Heat wins went to Chad Myers, Richie Fitz and Roger Irvine.
