Wendell Wallace Eyes WOOLMS Double-Dip Following First Victory of
(BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS) Wendell Wallace and his #6m team graced victory
lane for the first time in the young 2013 racing season on Saturday night,
May 4 at the Ark-La-Tex Speedway in Vivian, Louisiana! Wendell drew the
sixth starting spot and moved past four competitors during his heat race,
which locked the Batesville, Arkansas star into the inside of the second
row for the start of the 35-lap main event.
During the course of the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) showdown,
Wendell dropped back a few positions early before making a charge near
the halfway point in the race. The driver known as the "Batesville
Bullet" eventually grabbed the point with only a handful of laps
remaining and scored the $2,000 triumph over Ross Camponovo, Tommy Surrett,
Ray Moore, and Billy Moyer, Jr. Full results from Ark-La-Tex can be accessed
online at www.compdirt.com.
"It was good to get a win early in the season, especially after
Raymond (Merrill) got one in the car last weekend in Oklahoma," quoted
Wallace this week. "I feel like the car is pretty good, we just haven't
got to run a lot this year due to all of the rainy weather. We dropped
back a couple of spots in the feature the other night at Ark-La-Tex, but
the car got rolling about halfway and we were able to get back to the
front. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate this weekend and we can have
a couple of strong runs against the Outlaws guys at Little Rock and Whynot!"
The Wendell Wallace Autosports team will jump right back into action
this upcoming weekend (May 10-11) in a pair of World of Outlaws Late Model
Series tilts in the states of Arkansas and Mississippi. Weather pending,
Wendell will take on the WOOLMS gang in a pair of $10,000 to win clashes
on Friday at the I-30 Speedway in Little Rock, Arkansas and on Saturday
at the Whynot Motorsports Park in Meridian, Mississippi. Both one-day
programs will feature qualifying, heat races, consolation events, and
a 50-lap A-Main. Additional information on the big doubleheader can be
