WHITE CITY, Ore. – Kinzer Cox made a surprise visit to Southern Oregon Speedway and won the 25-lap Kendall Oil Winged Sprint Car feature Saturday night.

The Cottage Grove Speedway star led all the way to snap a three race win streak for point leader Mike Wheeler.

Cox was trailed early by David Hibbard before Tanner Holmes gained second on lap six. Wheeler, meanwhile, started midway back in the 15 car field and managed to take third from Hibbard on lap 18.

Wheeler overtook Holmes for second on lap 21 and set his sights on Cox. Trouble with slower car on lap 23 slowed Wheeler’s momentum. Wheeler still made a last lap bid to take the lead in the final turn, but Cox prevailed at the checkered flag.

Holmes settled for third ahead of Jake Wheeler and Bailey Hibbard.
