From the April 17 article on Sprint Car races in the Sedalia Democrat, it’s obvious the story was not reported accurately.
It was not reported that local Sprint Car driver Jonathon Cornell won his heat and was running second in the Feature when Cody Baker slipped up the track in turn three and Johnathon passed him clean with no contact. There was no wreck!
Jonathon went on to lead the next five laps and was gaining a sizable lead over several professional full-time drivers when a car he was lapping ran him into the fence. He ended up flipping his car and was out of the race which he would have most likely won.
Not a mention or picture of Jonathon? What a shame!
