What won the race: Multitime track champion Jeff Wildung of Nassau, Minn., dominated Sunday's 25-lap feature at Viking Speedway for his second NLRA victory of the season and 12th of his career. The polesitter denied runner-up Ricky Weiss of Headingly, Manitoba, a weekend sweep at the half-mile oval while Zach Johnson finished third.

Sunday marked the second of back-to-back weekend NLRA events at the half-mile Viking oval. Weiss earned $1,600 in Saturday's weekend opener. ... The previous two NLRA events rained out. ...
