The first appearance of the 2022 season for the Wingless Sprint Series saw their Salute to Indy event. 40 laps were on hand. Rob Lindsey of Sherwood, Ore and Lake Stevens driver Eric Turner set the front row of the feature event. It was Rob Lindsey out to the early lead. Turner ran in the second position as Tim Alberding of Salem, Ore and Springfield, Ore driver Ricky Ashley battled for third. Ashley picked up the position, looking to track down Turner. Rob Lindsey used the low side of the banked clay oval to extend his lead over Turner and Ashley. Chad Lindsey of Wilsonville, Ore worked his way into third, getting by Ashley. A three-car battle for fifth saw Alberding, Justen McConnville of Dundee, Ore and Spanaway driver Chris Greene battle for position. Just as that battle started to heat up, the battle for second saw Chad Lindsey look to the low side of the raceway and take over second from Turner. Lap 11 saw the caution flag fly for Ashley, slowing in turn two. The restart saw father and son Rob Lindsey and Chad Lindsey leading Turner, Alberding, and the rest of the field to the green. Rob Lindsey quickly put some distance on Chad Lindsey, as Alberding look to make a bid for second, bringing Turner with him. Turner running the high side gained some ground on both, working his way back into third momentarily. Lap 26 saw Bert Johnson of Lake Stevens slow in turn four, bringing out the caution. Rob Lindsey let the field to the green as Chad Lindsey worked his way around a lap car. Alberding saw tough company as Greene looked to make a battle for third. Turner set his sights on fourth and made the pass on Greene. Turner's night came to an end after front end issues late in the feature saw him pull into the infield. It was all Rob Lindsey picking up the win over Chad Lindsey, Alberding, Greene and McConnville. Heat race winners earlier in the evening were Rob Lindsey and McConnville, Rob Lindsey also won the dash and picked up quick time making it a clean sweep on the evening.
