Barnard Clinches Title With Victory

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. — John Barnard secured rookie-of-the-year honors and a season championship while notching his first career feature victory in Friday‘s POWRi Outlaw Micro League event at I-44 Riverside Speedway.

Racing into the feature event would witness high-point qualifier and inside front-row starter Talin Turner battle with the front-row companion and point-leader Barnard as Barnard would seize the lead on the opening lap.

Maintaining perfection on the track as well as his front-end run for the entire feature, John Barnard would not be denied in victory while claiming his first career league win in an action-packed feature with Talin Turner resulting in a terrific runner-up finish.

“I was just trying to hit my marks and just see how good my car was. We‘ve been trying so hard to get a win and it makes this one even more special,” said Barnard.

Staying in the hunt for the front all event, Daryn Stark would notch a solid third with Hayden Harvey placing fourth as Brant Woods rounded out the top-five finishers

The finish:
