Lonnie Wheatley, NIXA, Mo.
(April 5, 2019) – Kyle Bellm and the Nixa,
Missouri-based No. 14k Sprint Car team have plans to
tackle West Plains, Missouri’s Legit Speedway Park for
Saturday night’s ASCS Warrior vs. Mid-South Regional
It’s a track that Bellm
narrowly missed out on victory lane at last year.
“We should have had at least
second, I just got a little too aggressive and made a
mistake that cost me a couple of spots at the end,”
Bellm recalls. “West Plains usually
slicks off and I feel like our slick-trick program is
really good right now, so I think we have a good chance
at doing well there this weekend.”
Bellm enters Saturday’s action
after making his first Sprint Car start of the season
last Friday night at Little Rock’s I-30 Speedway.
The Saturday portion of the weekend fell victim
The initial race of the season
didn’t go as planned, with Bellm missing the feature by
just two positions along with several other top
contenders after a tough draw.
“It wasn’t according to plans
at all, we had a tough draw on a tough track to pass on
early and I was probably a little too timid in the heat
race,” Bellm says. “We could have
pressed the issue a little more, but it wasn’t really
worth tearing up a lot of stuff this early in the year.
We know the engine runs well, so we got something
out of the night. We’ll just try to
make the best of this next one.”
After racking up eight wins
over the past two seasons, Bellm is looking to add his
first win of the 2019 season this weekend.
