Sanders Doubles Down Out West

COTTAGE GROVE, Ore. — Cottage Grove Speedway was in action for the second straight night for Speedweek Northwest on Wednesday.

It was the fifth round of the series in six days. Twenty-six teams were in attendance from the states of Oregon, Washington, California, and Idaho, as well as the Canadian provinces of British Columbia and Alberta. 

Tanner Holmes sprinted out to the early lead when the action got started for the main event. Unfortunately, Holmes had to deal with a pair of restarts without issue in the first couple of laps. Then, on an 18th circuit green flag run, Tanner briefly went off the top of the first set of turns, allowing Justin Sanders to overtake him. 

Sanders racing for the Mittry Motorsports team, rocketed out in front of the rest of the competition on lap ten. He also had to deal with two restarts in the final ten laps, which did not give him any issues.  

There would be a brief heartstopping moment when Justin briefly got together with a lapped car on the final lap. 

Fortunately for Justin Sanders, he would resume the role as the trailblazer and score his second straight win of the week. He is the first repeat victor of Speedweek Northwest 2022 and now has three total triumphs to his total with the tour. 

Tanner Holmes rallied to the runner-up position while e Kinzer Cox posted a third-place result.

The finish:

Feature: 1. 2X-Justin Sanders; 2. 18T-Tanner Holmes; 3. 1K-Kinzer Cox; 4. 2JR-Kelly Miller; 5. 2L-Logan Forler; 6. 4-Jodie Robinson; 7. 8R-Joel Myers Jr.; 8. 35M-Chase Majdic; 9. 19-Colby Thornhill; 10. Steven Snawder; 11. 34-Melissa Solesbee; 12. 98H-Matt Hein; 13. 5-Kenny Wanderstadt; 14. 25S-Seth Standley; 15. 78-Don Trent; 16. 75-Brian Boswell; 17. 21-Jesse Schlotfeldt; 18. 17C-Chris Bullock; 19. 7-Tyler Thompson; 20. F1-Corbyn Fauver
