DayMotorsports.com Race Recap: Lindsey, Williams, Wyatt earn wins at Sabine

MANY, Louisiana (May 6, 2022) — Veteran Late Model pilot Tony Lindsey, open-wheel master Conner Williams, and stock car ace Dakoda Wyatt all earned wins in their respective divisions, as officials presented a full card of weekly racing on Friday evening at Sabine Speedway.

Lindsey powered to victory in the Foy Motors Crate Late Model A Main; Williams outgunned a field full of talent in the American Championship Series (ACS) Limited Modified feature, while Wyatt prevailed in a hotly-contested A Main for BOM Bank Factory Stock warriors.

Bryan Guice (FWD) also picked up a feature win on a nice, summer-like night for racing in Louisiana.

Lindsey, of Keithville, Louisiana, led all 15 laps of his contest in convincing fashion. Kevin Sitton crossed the stripe in second, while Shreveport's Clayton Stuckey filed out the podium. Garren Lindsey and Jerry Basco finished fourth and fifth, respectively.

“We had a little problem with the right front last week,” Lindsey told veteran announcer Joshua Bell in Victory Lane. “We got it lined out, and the car was flawless here tonight. I want to thank Tank Equipment Incorporated, Mike Knuckles at Warrior Race Cars, and the good folks who own this car.”

Finishing sixth through 10th in the Foy Motors Crate Racing USA Late Model A Main were Stacy Veuleman, Mark Powell, Brock Williams, Kris Shaw and Kristopher Shaw. Four cautions slowed the pace, two before a full lap was completed. A spin by Ryan French at lap 13 set up a two-lap dash.

Williams, of Sibley, Louisiana, went wire-to-wire in his feature, as well, holding off a hard-charging David Edwards for top honors. Williams got a great start from the outside lane, while RC Hagan slotted into second. Ben Leedy charged up to third in the closing laps, while Hagan faded to fourth.

Bob Kellogg completed the top five in a race slowed just once at lap five for Matt Ebarb's spin at the exit of Turn 4.

“I told RC (Hagan) before the race it was going to be whoever got to the bottom first,” Williams said. “I want to thank Daniel and Bubba (Jones) for giving us a place to race, and to everybody that helps me get here. I especially need to thank Donnie Shipp at Wicked Race Cars, he helps me out a ton.”

Finishing sixth through 10th in the ACS Limited Modified feature were Jarred Hebert, Matt Burney, Ebarb, JR Bamburg and Timothy Minister.

Wyatt, of Provencal, Louisiana, worked his way past John Parker Jr. at lap eight and managed to fend off a snarling pack of rivals for the victory. Dalton Dubois started fourth and finished second, while Parker settled for third.

Jeff Lewis drove up from 10th on the grid to finish fourth, while Mickey Steele came from eighth to fifth with a rock-solid performance.

“It was getting to be a handful out there,” Wyatt said. “The track had a little character tonight, but I'm glad we could get it done. They just informed me who it was that got into me a little, but that's alright. There won't be any problems or tense discussions at the next family gathering.”

Finishing sixth through 10th in the BOM Bank Factory Stock A Main were Dewayne Rains, Stoney Dubois, Ross Cook, Joshua Martin and Toby Airhart. Four cautions slowed the pace, all at lap 11 which for some reason seemed cursed and difficult to complete on this night. None were for serious incident.

Sabine promoter Bubba Jones and his staff knocked out a quick show for their fans on Friday evening. With 49 entries spread across four classes, qualifying only took 30 minutes and the features went off without significant delay, sending those happy, highly-entertained race fans home at 10:30 p.m.
