Memorial Day Triple
for Bellm after
Lonnie Wheatley, NIXA, Mo. (May 24, 2018) – The prospects of a lucrative weekend has Kyle Bellm and the family-owned No. 14k Sprint Car team champing at the bit. And it’s three nights of action close to home with a trio of ASCS Warrior Region events in Missouri this weekend.
The weekend includes a pair of events at Eldon, Missouri’s Lake Ozark Speedway on Friday and Saturday before moving on to California’s Double X Speedway on Sunday night. With a bonus in place, a Lake Ozark sweep would be worth $11,000.
“We had a good start to the season, but the last month has been kinda tough,” the driver of the Greenworks Nursery/Landscapes Awarded No. 14k Sprint Car explained. “Hopefully we can turn the page this weekend and get back on the right track.”
Bellm will be back aboard the familiar Christian County Collision Repair/Bybee Lawn Care entry this weekend after joining forces with the Wilson Brothers No. 21k entry for last Saturday’s Hooker Hood Classic at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, AR.
“The Wilson Brothers are a good bunch of guys to race for, hopefully we get a chance to do some more races together,” Bellm said after his first outing with the team.
After a fifth-place heat race finish, Bellm ultimately had to make an early exit for feature action with a broken shock.
“The night didn’t go as planned,” Bellm explained. “It was old-school Riverside, heavy and locked down. I got bottled up at the start of the heat and lost a position then rode from there.”
Bellm gridded the feature tenth before being credited with a 14th-place finish after making the early exit.
“We ran a few good laps then had a part fail,” Bellm explains. “I pulled off instead of taking a chance of tearing their stuff up, hopefully we can get together again.”
Bellm looks to get back on track aboard the PPG Automotive Finishes/Colorvision machine after starting the season in strong form with three top-tens in the initial four starts including a pair of top-fives.
“We’ll get our luck changed back around,” an optimistic Bellm says.
There’s no better place than Lake Ozark Speedway, where Bellm and the VP Racing Fuels/Schure Built Suspensions/Schaeffers Racing Oil team picked off four wins last year.
2018 Quick Stats: 9 races, 2 top-fives, 3 top-tens.
Up Next: ASCS Warrior Region at Lake Ozark Speedway (Eldon, MO) on Friday and Saturday and then Double X Speedway (California, MO) on Sunday.
