Aaron Marrant took the early lead with fellow front-row starter Dennis Walrath right behind on the track near Warrensburg.
Dave Meyer and Boney stayed on Marrant’s tail and both tried the pass him, according to a CMS press release. Meyer, driving on the low side, took the lead around lap 10.
Boney, of Tonganoxie, Kan., worked past Marrant on the high side and swiped the lead from Meyer a lap later when the latter got caught behind a slower car.
