Lonnie Wheatley, NIXA,
Mo. (June 28, 2019) – An ASCS Regional weekend
that was reduced from two races to one resulted
in another top-five finish for Kyle Bellm and
the Greenworks Nursery/Landscapes Awarded No.
14k Sprint Car team.
After Friday’s card at
Missouri’s Poplar Bluff Speedway fell victim to
rain, Bellm made a long awaited return to Little
Rock’s I-30 Speedway on Saturday and promptly
won his heat race before posting a fifth-place
finish in the night’s main event.
It was his third
top-five run in his last four starts.
“It was heavy in the
heat race, then it started going away within the
first few laps of the feature and I wasn’t
really prepared for that,” Bellm commented.
Bellm still held down
the third position much of the way before
settling for fifth.
“We were in lapped
traffic and I dipped the right rear off the
track and lost two position, it was still a good
night,” Bellm comments.
After taking this
weekend off, Bellm looks to increase his
schedule over the final half of the year.
“I think we’ve only
run our car about ten times this year and 14
races overall,” Bellm says.
“We have some things coming up that will have us
racing on a more regular basis and I think
that’ll help me get into a rhythm and start
getting more wins.”
Bellm’s next scheduled
action is July 6-7 at Missouri’s Lake Ozark
Speedway and Double X Raceway.
