Rick Sexton piloted the Johnson Poured Walls #9 to his 2nd Wayland Chevrolet Super Late Model feature win of the season Saturday night at Kalamazoo Speedway.

Jamie Gritter collected the turn 3 wall on lap 37. Eric McGlothlen produced a caution on lap 39 with his car smoking heavily. Tim Johnson and Phil Bozell got together in turn 1 with 5 laps to go.
