Will Vaught rebounded from a disappointing first night at LaSalle Speedway  to pick up his first MLRA win of the season. He lead all 40 laps in the “Land of Lincoln 40” at the LaSalle Speedway, but the win did not come easy. Several challengers made it difficult as Vaught navigated his way to victory lane at the quarter-mile speedway.
