Jonathan Cornell said he enjoys coming home to Sedalia.

“Not just because I’m from here,” Cornell said before the ASCS Warrior feature. “But because all my friends and familyand sponsors come out to support us. We have a really big support group and they’re all in the stands tonight.”

Cornell certainly drives like he enjoys Sedalia. He led start to finish in the 25-lap ASCS Warrior Region feature event for his first victory of the 2016 season.

Derek Hagar in the 9JR car and Brad Loyet in the o5 car chased Cornell to the finish.

Randy Martin, Kyle Bellm, Austin Alumbaugh, Corey Nelson, Evan Martin, Mitchell Moore and Danny Thoman rounded out the top-ten. Alambuagh advanced six positions to finish sixth.

Korey Weyant of Springfield, Illinois took the checkered flag in the Non-Winged sprints after starting in third place. Clinton Boyles, current points leader in the WAR circuit finished fourth behind runner-up Shane Cockrun and Derek Hagar.

Chris Desselle’s car was turned end-over-end midway though the contest. He walked away from the accident but was escorted via helicopter from the scene.

Riley Kreisel, who earned top poll position in heat one, finished fifth.
