Stanford, Johnson, Lawrence bring brooms to Winnemucca for Wild West Tour sweeps

Published by in Race Recap ·
WINNEMUCCA, Nev. (July 17 and 18) – The time they spent on the road paid off when Alex Stanford, Michael Johnson and Dillion Lawrence got to the track for the second weekend installment of the 1st Class Chassis Wild West Tour.

Californians Stanford and Johnson, and Utah hotshoe Lawrence all were double winners at Winnemucca Regional Raceway July 17 and 18.

Stanford put his name on the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot with his $1,200 IMCA Modified checkers. Johnson swept Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod features and Lawrence topped both IMCA Sunoco Stock Car mains.

Sixth and then third in two late May High Desert Classic Shootout shows at Winnemucca, Stanford won both WWT outings from eighth starting spots.

He won ahead of Shawn LaRocque and Jake Donnelly on opening night and in front of Braxton Yeager and Vincent Evenson on night two.

The already much-traveled and much accomplished Johnson left town with his seventh and eighth checkers of the season. Over the course of 15 starts, he’s won at six different tracks in four states.

He’d started 10th and passed brother Kevin for the lead on the way to the Friday win. Johnson led all 25 circuits from his front row start on Saturday.

Piloting a new Devilbiss-built ride, Lawrence swept the weekend from outside row one starts both nights.

Lawrence led from the third lap to the checkers on Friday and start to finish on Saturday.
“Usually my pill draw isn’t that good but this weekend it was pretty stellar,” he noted after wins numbers four and five on the season. “This was my first time at Winnemucca but we figured it out pretty quick.”

Johnson now leads all Northern SportMod drivers with three career tour wins; Lawrence and Ed Henderson lead Stock Car drivers with three wins each.
