In a talent-laden field of 42 cars, Wenger posted a sixth-place finish in his heat race, relegating him into the B-Main for another shot at the $22,022-to-win A-Main. Needing to place second or better, McKay fell short with a sixth-place outing.
Back in action on Saturday, McKay traveled to Spoon River Speedway (Banner, Ill.) for the MARS Racing Series-sanctioned Tom Knowles Memorial. Battling for a $3,000 payday in the feature, Wenger raced to a fourth-place in the 25-lapper, which came behind Ryan Unzicker, Jason Feger, and Bob Gardner with Tucker Finch coming in fifth.
