WHITE CITY — Tanner Holmes won his first 25-lap winged sprint car main event of the season at Southern Oregon Speedway Saturday.
Holmes has won several outlaw kart championships and finished second in Oregon Sprint Car Week Of Speed points this year. Holmes led the race from the start.
A yellow flag on Lap 18 gave Bailey Hibbard a shot at Holmes, but Holmes maintained his rapid pace on the restart for the impressive win. Hedge Carter finished third, followed by new champion David Hibbard and Merissa Henson.
