VIVIAN, La. (May 6, 2023) – Jeromy Wilson liked everything he saw in his first-ever visit to Ark-La-Tex Speedway Saturday night.

Despite his glasses fogging over on the last lap, the newly bespectacled Wilson topped the Stealth Racing IMCA STARS Mod Lite event co-sanctioned by the Mod Lites of Arkansas and North Texas Mod Lites.

The $1,000 checkers flew for Wilson’s first feature win of the season and came eight thousandth’s of a second ahead of Bryce Vowan.

Bobby Bates, Wilson’s son Blake and Andrew Lincoln rounded out the top five.

“It was a lot of fun and it was really exciting to be racing with Blake,” said Wilson, who led all 20 laps and ran 1-2 with his son early on. “I saw Bryce on the white flag and told myself “I gotta go.”

Twenty-five cars representing four states were entered at Vivian.
