Wagoner sets the pace in Newcastle!
The Season opener for the Hoosier Tire Black Hills Mini Sprint Tour began in Newcastle, Wyoming and it was a day that started under the threat of rain . But the skies broke and the sun came out and made for an exciting start to a long awaited 2016 season.

Wagoner (#51) set the pace early in the A feature leading all 20 laps and winning the opener . The night was not without challenges as many drivers struggled to find a good setup, and accidents left many drivers out of the feature early . When the dust settled Wagoner(#51) lead the tour across the finish line, followed closely by Brandon Mills (#22) , Logan Hershey (#20), Don Taylor (#31), and last years points champion John Garrigan Jr (#95J) round out the top five .
