CANEY, Kan. — An end of an era and the crowning of another champion highlighted the AmeriFlex / OCRS Sprint Car season finale Friday at Caney Valley Speedway.
The night marked the end of the 3×5 wing that sat atop the OCRS sprint cars for so many years. Next year the 5×5 top wing has been adopted for AmeriFlex / OCRS competition and Kinzer Edwards celebrated with his third feature victory of the season.
The 30-lap finale began with Roy Larkin jumping off the outside front row into the early lead over pole sitter Alex Sewell. But five laps into the race the yellow waved after Sewell spun.
Larkin continued to set the pace on the restart but he could not hold back Edwards who powered into the lead on lap eight.
Edwards went the remaining distance for his third victory of the season. Edwards won earlier this year at Caney on June 6 and picked up his first victory of the season on May 23 at Monett Motor Speedway.
Casey Wills worked his way from fourth to a second-place finish, followed by Zach Chappell, who wrapped up his third career AmeriFlex / OCRS championship.
Andrew Deal and Terry Easum completed the top five.
