WOES HALT VAUGHT AT SPRINGFIELD...
23, 2014) Will Vaught Racing returned to dirt-slinging
action on Saturday evening, March 22 at Springfield Raceway
in Springfield, Missouri. The MARS DIRTcar Series presided
over the single-day 'March Madness' program, which boasted
a $3,000 payday. Will Vaught won his heat race in preliminary
action and later started the A-Main from the pole position.
The Crane, Missouri native then led early in the feature
before experiencing right front brake issues, which took
him out of the race and relegated him to a disappointing
twentieth place effort. Full results from last night at
Springfield can be located online at www.marsracingseries.com.
EXTREME RESULTS FROM TUCSON

team wrapped up the 2014 edition of the 'Winter Extreme'
miniseries today at Tucson International Raceway, as the
six-race burst of NDRL events concluded with a $10,000
to win finale. Will grabbed the third and final transfer
spot through his loaded heat race, which earned him the
outside of the ninth row for the start of the 50-lap main
event. The driver known as "The Thrill" was
then able to work his way past seven competitors on the
mostly one-groove racing surface en route to a respectable
eleventh place effort.

and later placed fourth in heat race action. After grabbing
the second and final transfer spot through his B-Main,

found himself eighteenth in the final finishing order.

$3,000 winner's check was up for grabs tonight in Tucson,
as TIR played host to round four of the 'Winter Extreme'

Arizona. Will Vaught posted the fourth quickest lap in
his group during National Dirt Racing League (NDRL) qualifying
