HAYS, Kansas (July 11, 2020) – The United Rebel Sprint Series Presented by Mel Hambelton Ford Racing took on night one of the Wheatshocker Nationals at Rolling Plains Motor Speedway in Hays, Kansas on Saturday night. A stacked 20-car field was in attendance and Ty Williams was the front-runner.
Shane Sundquist and JD Johnson lined up on the front row of the 25-lap feature event. Shane Sundquist took off with the early lead, but not without Koby Walters eager to grab the top position. On lap 4, Walters would take the top spot and Ty Williams would be next to challenge Sundquist for second place. A rim riding Williams and Walters battled for the lead for several laps, until lap 15 when Williams would claim the top spot.
