The Wheatley Chronicles – Volume IV, No. 8

Lonnie Wheatley, TULSA, Okla. (March 31, 2016) – With the month of March coming to a close, it is Shane Stewart carrying the STIDA Winged 410 Sprint Car Power Rankings lead into April.

The Winter Heat champion and currently second in World of Outlaws points, Stewart holds a 26-point advantage on the strength of three wins among his ten top-fives and 16 top-ten feature finishes.

It’s the same lead he held in the initial STIDA Winged 410 Power Rankings released on March 9, however now it is Posse rep Greg Hodnett moving into second by just two points over Daryn Pittman.

Hodnett posted his third win of the year with last Friday’s Williams Grove triumph, just enough to push him up to second.

Pittman holds down third, while current WoO points leader has climbed to fourth with Donny Schatz right on his heels in fifth.

The rest of the current top ten includes Joey Saldana, Dale Blaney, Jason Johnson, David Gravel and Danny Lasoski.

Stewart was also the top Power Rankings point earner for the month of March, racking up 110 points to edge Schatz (106) and Sweet (102) for the month.
