JACKSONVILLE, Ill. – Zeb Wise took the lead on lap two and powered to victory in the Jacksonville Midget Championships Sunday night at Jacksonville Speedway.
Wise started second in the 25-lap feature, taking the lead from polesitter Tucker Klaasmeyer on the second circuit. The only thing that slowed the Clauson-Marshall Racing driver down was a caution with four laps left.
Even that caution period wasn’t enough to prevent Wise from capturing the victory as he pulled away from the field by more than a second to claim the $3,000 top prize.
Klaasmeyer finished second, followed by Tanner Carrick, Jesse Colwell and Zach Daum.
Holly Hollan won the Non-Qualifiers feature and opted to tag the tail of the 16-car field main event. She finished eighth.
In other action, Paul Nienhiser won the 305 winged sprint car feature, Daum won the 410 non-winged sprint car feature and Joe B. Miller won the micro sprint main event.
