Thornton Jr. wins with NOW 600 Series at Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex
After Mother Nature stole another weekend with the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series (LOLMDS), Ricky Thornton Jr. broke out his Wing and Non-Wing Micros on Friday afternoon at Sweet Springs Motorsports Complex (Sweet Springs, Mo.) to compete with the Dirt2Media National Open Wheel 600 Series.
With a fourth-to-first finish in his Non-Wing Micro heat placing him on the pole for the feature, Thornton turned back Jason McDougal in the 25-lapper to secure his seventh win of the season and first career with NOW 600 Series. Charging from the ninth row in the Winged A-Class Micro feature after racing his way into the show via B-Main win, Ricky passed 11 cars to finish sixth.
The weekend drew to a close on Saturday with Ricky scoring a pair of runner-up finishes in both features.
