NICE SUNDAY DRIVE: COREY DAY TOPS INTENSE FINISH AT RPM FOR FIRST WIN WITH KUBOTA HIGH LIMIT RACING




For two-plus years, the hype around Corey Day's future has continuously been building; and somehow, he continuously lives up to it.


On Sunday at RPM Speedway in Crandall, TX, the 18-year-old sensation earned his first-career Kubota High Limit Racing victory in his ninth try with the young series; and he did it in simply spectacular fashion.


After starting fourth and fading to fifth, the Clovis, California native used all of his experience from racing bullrings back home to propel the Jason Meyers Racing, Sander Engineering #14 to the front. When most of the field had called it quits on the high side, Day dug down and committed even deeper to rippin' it close to the fence.


Day drove around Brad Sweet for 4th on Lap 19, then whipped around Jacob Allen for 3rd on Lap 21, then flew around Anthony Macri for 2nd on Lap 25, and finally rocketed around the outside of Kerry Madsen to take the lead on Lap 29 - his fastest lap of the race at 12.948-seconds.


From there, Day set the cruise control and enjoyed a nice Sunday drive around the outside as he ran to the checkered flag to claim his first-career win with Kubota High Limit Racing. Day's victory makes it five different winners through the opening six races of the 2024 season.


After leading the opening 29 laps, Australian Kerry Madsen brought Brandon Ikenberry's #25 home with a P2 finish. Jacob Allen rallied on the final restart to put the Shark Racing #1A on the podium in third, also pushing him into the fifth and final points position for a High Stakes Charter.


Anthony Macri and Brad Sweet rounded out the top-five with James McFadden, Tyler Courtney, Zeb Wise, Brent Marks, and Spencer Bayston closing out the top-10.
