Wampler Posts Season-Best Second-Place Finish at Lawton Speedway

Inside Line Promotions - LAWTON, Okla. (June 23, 2015) - Cody Wampler is inching closer to his first victory of the season.

Wampler led several laps before posting a runner-up result in the Randall Buzbee owned champ sprint last Saturday at Lawton Speedway.

"Overall we have a long way to go, but everything stayed together so that was a positive," he said. "We're going to take it to the chassis dyno this week to fine-tune it."

Wampler kicked off the event by advancing from third to second place during a heat race.

"We fell to fourth on the start," he said. "The motor was still a little rich and wouldn't take off. We rolled the corners nice and that's what got us a couple of positions."

He then lined up on the outside of the second row for the main event.

"I was up to second on the opening lap or two," he said. "I took the lead about Lap 3 or 4 and I led for seven or eight laps. I just made a few mistakes. The line I was running had some ruts. It would be pretty good if I made a good corner, but I made some mistakes. A guy got by me on the top and I could never make that back up. I could stay with him and made a couple of decent runs, but he was definitely a faster car."

Wampler's second-place finish marked his first top five of the season.

"I'm very optimistic about where we were running and what we have to improve on," he said. "I feel confident we'll get better and win a race soon."

Wampler will take this weekend off before returning to action on July 4 at Lawton Speedway.
