Wayne Johnson Perfect In 2018 Hockett/McMillin Opener


Bryan Hulbert - WHEATLAND, Mo. (September 20, 2018) For the third time in his career, Wayne Johnson rolled his Outlaw Wings No. 2c into Victory Lane at Lucas Oil Speedway with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com, winning the opening night of the 8th annual Hockett/McMillin Memorial.
Starting his night with a Heat Race win, Johnson followed that with a victory in his Qualifier. Perfect going into the A-Feature, Wayne was unstoppable through the 25-lap preliminary event.
"These guys gave me one hell of a car tonight. We started third in our Heat Race and won it, and when we won our Qualifier from sixth, I knew we had a good car," commented Johnson.
"In the feature, I just made sure we hit our marks, and when I saw Sam got up to second, I knew I really couldn't mess up so we just stuck to the bottom, but our package here is really good so we'll come back tomorrow and start where we did tonight"
Outrunning Tyler Blank on the start, the caution brought the field back to side-by-side formation as Tyler Blank and Sammy Swindell collected each other battling for the runner-up spot. Restarting with Scott Bogucki to his right, the Sawblade.com No. 28 challenged Johnson on the restart, but would instead have to contend with Kyle Bellm for second.
Slowed again working the second lap for Sean McClelland, the No. 2c was quick to pull away as the runner-up spot was up for grabs with Sam Hafertepe, Jr. rolling by. Keeping pace with Johnson, the track began working to the low line.
Keeping the cars straight through the half-way point, the caution flew again working Lap 16 as Jamie Ball went around in the third turn. Back to Lap 15, Bogucki tried for second with no avail.
With the field pacing to the final two laps, the caution flew for the last time as Carson Short stopped exiting the fourth turn. Back to three laps to run, Wayne Johnson did everything right to win by 0.605 seconds. Sam Hafertepe, Jr. in second was followed by Scott Bogucki. Coming up from 10th, Dylan Westbrook grabbed fourth with Kyle Bellm slipping back to fifth.
Roger Crockett in sixth was followed by Derek Hagar who ran up from 11th. Skylar Gee crossed eighth with Joe B. Miller in ninth. Passing nine cars to earn the night's CP-Carrillo Pistons Hard Charger of the Night, Johnny Herrera rounded out the top-ten.
In the night's accumulated points, Wayne Johnson leads with a perfect score of 170. Sam Hafertepe, Jr. is second with 160, followed by Scott Bogucki (155), Dylan Westbrook (145), and Kyle Bellm (144) to make up the top-five after one night of competition. The field of 59 drivers will have another shot to accumulate event points as Night 2 of the Hockett/McMillin Memorial goes green Friday, September 21 at 7:05 P.M. (CT).
