Former series champion Jeremy Campbell took the lead from his outside front row starting position and dominated the field as the National Championship Racing Association of Park City, Kansas presented by Precise Racing Products sprint car division paid a Father’s Day Sunday night visit to 81 Speedway in Park City for the annual “Bill Hall Memorial.”
Campbell got the jump on pole sitter Don Droud, Jr. at the start of the twenty-five-lap feature and quickly set sail away from the rest of the field. Nebraska’s Jason Martin worked his way up from his sixth starting position to finish second while defending champion Droud came home third.
After failing to finish his heat race due to power steering failures, Norman, Oklahoma’s Danny Jennings put on a drive from his eleventh starting position to come home fourth while Josh Fairbank rounded out the top five.
The next event for the NCRA sprint car division will be held on Saturday night, July 1, at 81 Speedway with the tracks annual “Summer Time Classic.”
