DuQuoin, IL. (12/16/23) Reed Whitney would perfect the night in claiming his first feature win of the year with the POWRi Outlaw Non-Wing Micro League presented by Engler Machine & Tool at the Southern Illinois Center, in DuQuoin Illinois, in an actioned packed event in support of the Jr Knepper 55.

Entering a stout field of twenty POWRi Outlaw Non-Wing Micro competitors, Reed Whitney would clock an overall hot lap quick-time with a 9.717-second lap as Daniel Robinson, Chevy Boyer, and Reed Whitney would earn the heat racing victories as well as Reed Whitney gaining the night’s high-point qualifier accolade after driving from starting fourth to winning his heat.

Securing the front of the field for the duration of the feature event Reed Whitney claimed his first career micro win in an intense and action-packed twenty-five-lap feature event. Staying close to the lead the whole race would find JB Gilbert fly to finish runner-up from starting third with Alex Burgener finalizing the podium placements from starting thirteenth in the grid.

“I knew this whole field was fast and I needed to keep my nose clean while hitting all my marks,” said feature winner Kale Drake in the I-44 Riverside Speedway victory lane ceremonies. Adding, “This feels great to not only win the race but to also clinch the championship in the same night.”

Staying with the contending pack would find Daniel Robinson finish fourth as Rylan Gray would round out the top-five finishers after starting in the tenth position in the POWRi Outlaw Non-Wing Micro League feature event at Southern Illinois Center in the final feature of 2023.
