Ward, Daub continue win streaks at Pahrump Valley Speedway

Jared Ward and Mark Daub each won for the third consecutive race to highlight the March 13 racing at Pahrump Valley Speedway.

Ward captured the Hobby Stock division, with Jay Ward second and 2020 champion Adam Tiscareno finishing third. Daub, the defending Coupe champion, outdueled Scott Halloway and Daniel Bruner for his third victory of the young season. Daub already holds a 19-point lead in the standings, while Ward’s edge in the points chase is 16.

In Super Stocks, Tyson Talkington won for the second time this season, finishing ahead of Tom Davis and Timothy Murphy. Talkington, who leads Davis by eight in the standings, finished fourth in the Feb. 27 race.

Jerry Walton finished first in a crowded Sport Mod field, taking the checkered flag ahead of Rafael Flores, Aries King and Clifton King. The victory moved Walton within two points of Aries King for the season lead, one point ahead of Jeff Murphy. The three drivers are already well clear of the rest of the field in the class.
