SANDUSKY, Ohio — Andrew Bogusz took the lead for the final time on a double-file restart and never looked back as he captured opening night of the Bev Jaycox Memorial Cavalcade Saturday night at Sandusky Speedway.
It was the 16-year-old’s second Maxima Racing Oils Must See Racing Midwest Lights feature win of the season.
On a lap five restart, series point leader Cody Gallogly assumed the pole position and Bogusz assumed the outside lane. Bogusz surprisingly powered into the lead and never looked back. He would build a 0.039 second lead at the checkered as the remainder of the event went caution free.
In victory lane, even Bogusz surprised himself when he took the lead on the restart convincingly.
“I honestly thought he (Gallogly) was gonna get me on that restart,” Bogusz said. ”He’s got a way better car than we do. Mine is more of a dirt car then he has. I didn’t know I’d have that speed to carry me through the turns. I just sent it in, pinned him down, and rocketed off. The car felt great the first half of the race. Towards the end the steering started getting stiff. I kept fighting. When I saw the white flag, I just let it play out and got the win”.
Following Bogusz to the strip were Gallogly and J.J. Henes rounding out the top three.
