Extreme 4 Wheeler Racing presented by Impact Signs, Awnings and Wraps, Sedalia, was held Saturday at the main arena of the Moniteau County Fairgrounds, California, where a total of 36 drivers competed.

The event was the second of three scheduled for the series. The first was held June 28, and the third is scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 6, during the Moniteau County Fair.

Series Director Andy Korte, who gave up racing to get involved in promoting, and currently runs the W.A.R. (Wingless Auto Racing) Series, said, "The first two events were a huge success for us and we're really looking forward to the fair races. Hopefully we will get some more local riders. We travel all over Missouri, Kansas, and Illinois with the WAR Series, so it will be nice to come back here to our local fair and put on a show for our friends and neighbors!"
