What won the race: Polesitter Andrew Kosiski of Omaha, Neb., rolled to a $4,000 Malvern Bank Series victory Saturday at I-80 Speedway on the second day of the track's Spring Meltdown weekend. He took the checkers 1.760 seconds ahead of runner-up Josh Leonard to record his second career Malvern Bank Series triumph.
Quotable: "I got lucky with the draw, but I still think we had a really fast race car," Kosiski said. "I knew we were a little off Friday night and I thought I knew what it needed, and it really came to life there."
