WALKER TAKES HOME HIS SECOND VICTORY IN KANSAS By: Camisha Klumb JETMORE, KS. June 8, 2002. The World of Outlaws Gumout Series invaded Jetmore Motorplex Saturday night. The Gumout Series literally blew into town and took the cash. With wind gusting up to 40 mph current points leader Tyler Walker ran down early race leader Jason Sides and would post his second Gumout Series victory of the season. An overflow crowd was then treated to the now patented end over end flips done by Walker in victory lane after each win."I was patient and it feels good to win, stated Walker."
The high winds played in big part in the outcome of the race with drivers having a hard time driving into turn three. Jason Sides while running second ran into problems when he spun off the high side of turn three. Sides would come back to finish in ninth spot. Brooke Tatnell, the Australian veteran, battled with Wayne Johnson for the second spot. Tatnell was strong and was able to hold off Johnson for that spot.
"It was a good race, and we are happy to have a strong finish, stated Tatnell." Wayne Johnson coming off his first victory this season with the Gumout Series last weekend in Benton, Missouri finished behind Tatnell in the third spot. Johnson is currently leading the Brodix Heads/All Pro Heads Rookie of the Year battle. Kurt Winker continued his good luck by finishing fourth. Coming off his sixth finish last weekend in Benton, Missouri, he stated, "I am happy with our last two runs. It feels good to finish well, and with our recent bad luck it feels good to be in one piece."
Kansas local, Dennis Park finished fifth followed by sixteen year old Brandon Wimmer, Craig Keel, Nick Haygood, Jason Sides, and Dan Oswalt. Jeremy Campbell after graduating high school on Wednesday broke a torsion arm, which sent him to the pit area he finished eighteenth. A frustrated Shane Stewart ran into problems for the second week, as he spun running second. He then fought tire problems, and finished nineteenth.
Gumout supporter Brian Carlson finished in the twelfth spot, and Bob Bennett after tire problems finished sixteenth. The World of Outlaws Gumout Series will be running at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kansas on Tuesday June 11, 2002. Huggins Cams
