Meridian, Idaho- The NSRA Winged Sprintcar Series would return for the second and final night of the 2018 Diamond Cup at Meridian Speedway on Saturday, June 9th.  After an incredible opening leg at the Idaho short track fans would be in for another thriller.  Twenty-one cars would be in the pit area representing the states of Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and Utah as well as the Canadian province of British Columbia.

 

Justin Segura, of Caldwell, would be the dominant force in the main event.  Segura would pace the field the entire distance with a torrid pace.  He would cross the wire in first place when the checkered flag was dropped.  Unfortunately, during the post-race inspection he would be disqualified.  That would give the win to Andy Alberding, of Winston, Oregon, for his first victory of 2018.

 

Meridian’s Bryan Warf would be recorded second followed by Randy DuBois, of Redmond, Washington, in third.  Matt Hein, from Roseburg, Oregon, was fourth while fifth went to Johnny Giesler, of Meridian. When it all would shake out Ron Larson, out of Quesnel, British Columbia, would earn the most points over the weekend to be declared the 2018 Diamond Cup champion.

 

The NSRA Winged Sprintcar Series takes the rest of the month off before they travel to Big Sky Country.  The tour will be on tap for the Mission Valley Shootout, Polson, Montana’s Mission Valley Speedway, on Saturday, July 7th.
