Inside Line Promotions – AMARILLO, Texas (July 20, 2020) – John Carney II swept the night last Saturday at Route 66 Motor Speedway to score his fourth feature triumph of the season.
The SawBlade.com Xiphos saw blade and South Plains Towing backed competitor drove for Scott Brown during the 305ci winged sprint car show. It marked his third victory of the season at the track.
“Everything went smooth,” he said. “We put a new car together and we were trying out some different things to get ourselves dialed in for Belleville in a couple of weeks.”
Carney II maneuvered from fourth to win a heat race. He then led the distance of the main event from the pole position.
“We started on the front of the main and led every lap so everything went pretty good,” he said. “I haven’t run much 305 stuff the last couple of years. I think we’ve struck on something. We’ve won some races this year, but haven’t had a great car. On Saturday the car was pretty good.”
Carney II plans to make a pair of rare starts behind the wheel of a non-wing sprint car this Friday at West Texas Raceway in Lubbock, Texas, and Saturday at Route 66 Motor Speedway in Amarillo, Texas, with the ASCS Elite Non-Wing Sprints.
“It’s been probably five years since I last raced non-wing,” he said. “I think the last time I ran a non-wing I won. You have to slow yourself down and know you can’t run it into the corner as hard. It requires patience and being smooth with the throttle.”
