FOUNTAIN CITY, Wis. -- Night two at Mississippi Thunder Speedway seemed relatively calmer than the opener, but the racing action was definitely stepped up. Multi-line racing and three and four-wide action covered many classes. Josh Angst tallied a clean sweep in the USRA RHS Modifieds while Troy Hovey made the pass to steal the win from Ben Anderson in the USRA Karl Performance Parts B-Mod feature.

Keith Foss carried the American Flag for the National Anthem for honors as last week’s Driver of the Week. Unfortunately he was not able to carry over his good runs to this week as he had issues in both his heat and feature races.

It was redemption time for the USRA Karl Performance Parts B-Mods as they regrouped after last week’s chaotic feature to run a two-caution feature with a lot of movement. Ben Anderson shot to a big lead over Brian Mahlstedt, but Troy Langowski slid into second quickly.

Brandon Hare geared up and moved from sixth to third and was followed by a pack of five cars for fourth place. Nick Frion, Troy Hovey, Erik Kanz, Chad Kosidowski, and Alex Williamson all vied for fourth early on. Hovey came out on top of the pack in fourth followed by Kanz and Frion. Anderson continued his solid lead, but Langowski gained somewhat as Hare moved in too.

Kanz made a run on Hovey for third as the two raced side by side. A caution with nine laps down to reset the field with Anderson on the point followed by Hare, Langowski, Hovey, and Kanz. Hare grabbed second and left Langowski to fend off Hovey and Kanz for third place. A second caution set the field up for the final eight-lap sprint. Anderson, Hare, Hovey, and Kanz set the pace as Langowski held Mahlstedt to sixth. Hovey shot under Hare for second en route to Anderson’s lead.

Lapped traffic came into play as the laps wound down. At the white flag lap, Hovey capitalized on that lap traffic and zipped into the lead over Anderson. Hovey headed to victory lane on night two for the win. Anderson had to settle for runner up followed by Hare, Kanz and Mahlstedt.

The USRA RHS Modifieds saw a lot of action as Ben Mattick and Ron Konkel led the field to the green flag. Bob Timm, John Doelle and Ryan York raced for third, but Timm quickly raced side by side with Mattick for the lead ahead of Josh Angst.

Konkel, Luke Schott and Doelle raced for fourth place. Schott worked the low groove to take over fourth when a caution waved over the field. Angst then led with Timm chasing in second. Mattick ran in third a short distance behind Timm while Konkel fought off the charges of rookie Jake Timm, Doelle and Schott. Angst quickly commanded the lead followed by Bob Timm, Mattick,Konkel and Jake Timm.

With 11 laps down, a restart set Angst out front of the pack. Bob Timm, Jake Timm and Mattick all clustered in turn 2 for second place. Jake Timm came out the leader of that pack into second place, but continued to be chased by his dad. Angst sealed his first win of the season followed by an impressive run by Jake Timm in second. Bob Timm, York and Mattick finished out the top-5.

Join us next week Friday, May 13, with all regular classes in action for week three at Mississippi Thunder Speedway. Coming up in just under two weeks on May 20th will be the first time at the speedway for the IRA 410 Sprints sponsored by Winona Radio and Budweiser. WISSOTA Street Stocks, USRA Karl Performance Parts B-Mods, and USRA RHS Modifieds will join the racing action that night.
