David Prickett scored his eleventh career Western Midget Racing presented by Masters Design and Construction victory by grabbing Saturday’s season opener at Glendale, Arizona’s Adobe Mountain Speedway. The victory marks the fourth different venue where Prickett has prevailed in WMR competition and gives him the debut win for the series in the Copper State.

Nine stock production-powered Midgets were on hand for the non-points opener. Prickett won the opening heat race from the outside pole before Peoria, Arizona’s Cory Brown duplicated the feat in the second heat race.

A three-car inversion for the 20-lap feature placed Greg Jewett on the pole on the 1/5th mile dirt oval. Prickett took the win from the third starting position, holding off Brown by a scant .625 seconds. Jewett’s debut was a strong one, finishing third ahead of fellow debutant Las Cruces, NM’s Aasa Flores and Granite Bay, Calif.’s Gary Dunn.

Western Midget Racing opens its 2021 championship points season on March 20th at Adobe Mountain with Ocean Speedway’s first WMR date on March 26 and Ventura Raceway seeing its first WMR action of the year on April 3.
