Carson Macedo Sails To Ultimate Challenge Victory In ASCS

(Image Credit: Tim Aylwin)

Carson Macedo is having a dream week in Iowa. Just off his first career victory with the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by Sawblade.com in prelim action at the Knoxville 360 Nationals for Jason Johnson Racing, the California shoe strapped into the Tony Stewart Racing No. 14 on Tuesday night and won the Sage Fruit Ultimate Challenge.

Wheeling the Textron Off-Road/Sage Fruit entry from outside of the second row, Macedo was quick to find the front of the field, with a pass on fellow California driver, Willie Croft, coming on Lap 3. From there, Macedo set sail on the cushion for his fourth podium finish and second win during the 2018 Southern Iowa Sprint Week. Continuing to gain speed, John Carney from El Paso, Texas worked from sixth to second for Snow Racing with Croft ending his night third.

Working the low line of the Southern Iowa Speedway, Oklahoma’s Blake Hahn steadily made his way from 13th to fourth. Picking up five positions, Washington’s Trey Starks made up the top-five. Racing from eighth to third early on, Wayne Johnson ended up slipping back to sixth with Johnny Herrera grabbing seventh. Seth Bergman in eighth was trailed by Paul Nienhiser with the CP-Carrillo Hard Charger of the Night going to Shane Golobic who moved from 20th to tenth.
