Madras, Oregon- The Wingless Sprint Series would open up the 2017 at Madras Speedway in gorgeous central Oregon. Not only would it be the first race for the overall series but it would also be the first event of the Lynch Pro-Formance Products Wingless Sprint Mini-Series. A total of nineteen cars would make the journey representing the Pacific Northwest states of Oregon and Washington.
Gary Lynch would handle the field when it came to main event. The Sisters, Oregon veteran would have to earn the win. Lynch would be passed a couple of times only to receive the lead back due to a caution taking place before an entire lap could get completed. He would hold back all challengers to hold down first place the entire feature and record his second career WSS win.
Defending series champion Rob Lindsey, out of Sherwood, Oregon, would end the night second followed by Salem, Oregon’s Tim Alberding in third. The balance of the top five would consist of Ridgefield, Washington pilot Pat Canfield, in fourth, and Theo McCarty, from Hillsboro, Oregon, in fifth.
No qualifying took place however the series would utilize a double heat race format. Winners of the heats were Pat Canfield, McMinnville, Oregon’s Lance Hallmark, Forest Grove, Oregon driver Jake Gilman, and Gary Lynch. Tim Alberding was victorious in the evening’s trophy dash.
The Wingless Sprint Series will be taking this weekend off before the second race of the campaign takes place. The next round of action is on May 20th at Cottage Grove Speedway. It will be the first of three trips to the historic ¼-mile clay oval in 2017.
