Kale Drake Wins C. Bell’s Prelim Night One with POWRi Outlaw Non-Wing Micros

Kale Drake Wins C. Bell’s Prelim Night One with POWRi Outlaw Non-Wing Micros

Belleville, IL. (9/22/22) Kale Drake would shine bright at Lil’ Texas Motor Speedway in the debut action of C. Bell’s Micro Mania with the POWRi Non-Wing Outlaw Micro League preliminary split-field feature event on Thursday Night to claim their first league win and possibly biggest career feature victory to date.

Entering a stout field of sixty-eight competitors in the POWRi Outlaw Non-Wing Micro League at Lil’ Texas Motor Speedway would find Caleb Pence set the quickest qualifying time at a 12.46-second lap. Caleb Pence, Johnny Boland, Peter Smith, Kale Drake, Laydon Pearson, and Kyle Busch would each claim heat racing wins; the D-Feature win would go to Darren Brown with Trey Marcham earning the C-Feature win and Ryan Winter victorious in the B-Feature.

Riding onto the recently reconfigured racetrack, Caleb Pence would use a high-point qualifier award to gain an inside front-row start with Kale Drake starting outside pole position. Pence would snatch the lead on the opening laps with the field of twenty-four drivers in pursuit.

Finding the fastest line on the high-side would see Jett Hays overtake Caleb Pence for the front of the field with Kale Drake, Sammy McNabb, and Kyle Busch all racing inside the top five. Defending the front, Hays would battle Drake for the preferred position with the laps starting to wind down as Kale Drake would overtake for the lead with seven laps remaining using an outside run off turn four.

Holding off all attempts in late-race restarts, Kale Drake would not be denied and emerged victorious to claim his first league win of the year after an action-packed feature with Jett Hays resulting in a great runner-up finish.

“Honestly this car was amazing everywhere, this crew gave me everything I needed. I knew early on I needed to chill out and calm down with this race going thirty laps. I knew exactly late where I needed to run this car, this feels amazing,” said a celebratory Kale Drake in the Lil’ Texas Motor Speedway winner’s circle.

In contention among the front-runners all evening, Sammy McNabb would notch a solid third with one-time leader Caleb Pence placing fourth as Jeffrey Newell hard-charged his way through the field to round out the top-five finishers in C. Bell’s Micro Mania at Lil’ Texas Motor Speedway with the POWRi Outlaw Non-Wing Micro League feature for preliminary night one.
