Ward, Daub post 2nd straight wins at Pahrump Valley Speedway

Jared Ward and Mark Daub followed up his opening night victories with wins Feb. 27 to take the early lead in the points races at Pahrump Valley Speedway.

After just two weeks of racing, Ward holds a 10-point lead in Hobby Stocks over Adam Tiscarao, who finished behind Jay Ward and Benjamin Sherard in the race.

In Coupes, Daub outdueled Daniel Bruner for his second consecutive win. In the smaller Coupe class — five drivers competed Feb. 27 compared to 11 in the Hobby Stock race — there are fewer points to be had, but Daub already owns an 11-point edge over Bruner and Scott Halloway.

Mike Wells took the checkered flag in the Mini Stock class, trailed by Brandon Jones, Tanner Reynolds, Aaron-Pike Ceballos and Phil Hans in the 11-driver field.

Tom Davis finished first in the Super Stock race, with Tim Murphy second, Dillon Murphy third and Tyson Talkington fourth. Talkington owns the lead in the points race after two weeks, holding an 89-83 lead over Davis.

Only two drivers started in the main Modifieds race, with Dan Perry III finishing ahead of Dale Sauter. Perry and Brady Gladd, who won on opening night, share the early points lead in the class.

Jerry Walton rebounded from an 11th-place finish on opening night to win the Sport Mods race, with Joe Wabsis, Aries King, Jeff Murphy and Trent Bandazian running second through fifth.
