FOUNTAIN CITY, Wis. -- And into June we go with a complete turn of the thermometer going from multi-layers the previous week to as little as possible this week as temps surged into the 90s. Also hot was Drew Lawson as he turned his ninth place starting spot into his first USRA Karl Performance Parts B-Mod feature win at Mississippi Thunder Speedway while Josh Angst took down the field in the caution-free USRA RHS Modified feature.

The USRA Karl Performance Parts B-Mods played a little bumper tag in the first lap of their main event which resulted in the first caution.

Brandon Hare assumed the point followed by Troy Langowski and Ben Anderson. Anderson got a jump on Langowski into second place behind Hare, but Langowski darted right back to take the spot back. Anderson flew around the high side in third place when Drew Lawson showed up to run side by side with Anderson.

Parker Hale stepped up his game to tap the top five from his eighth place starting spot. Hare continued to stretch his lead over Langowski as Lawson pulled to a solo third place run over Anderson.

With nine laps down, Langowski made a valiant attempt at the lead under Hare, but Hare was able to stay out front. Lawson then made a move into second place as Langowski appeared to be fighting a wandering car.

With 12 laps down, Lawson began a mission to challenge Hare for the lead. In no time, Lawson made the pass and cruised out front ahead of Hare. Anderson gained on Langowski and took over third while Hale continued to run a strong fifth.

Lawson locked in his first MTS win followed by Hare, Anderson, Langowski, and Hale.

Josh Angst and Lucas Schott drove the USRA RHS Modified field into a fast and furious feature start. Schott quickly turned the track into his own by taking the lead over Angst, Jay Ihrke, and Hank Rollinger Jr. John Doelle dropped into fifth place before running side by side with Rollinger for fourth.

Bob Timm then moved into fifth place which sent Rollinger back a spot. Schott pulled away up front and left Angst and Ihrke to duke it out for second place. Angst grabbed second place back from Ihrke and then shot up behind Schott to challenge for the lead. Schott slipped a bit which allowed Angst into the lead, however, Schott battled back. Angst again won over the lead from Schott at approximately lap 12.

Angst gave himself a cushion between himself and Schott while Ihrke and Doelle raced for third. Keith Foss moved into the top five ahead of Les Duellman and Timm after starting 12th. Angst laid down a straightaway lead over Schott who was just a car length ahead of Ihrke in second.

Schott slipped a bit high which gave Ihrke the opportunity to shoot into second place. With 20 laps down, Angst entered lap traffic but was able to thread his way through with ease.

Angst charged to the win followed by Ihrke in a strong second-place effort. Doelle, Foss, and Duellman rounded out the top five in the non-stop event.

Next up at Mississippi Thunder Speedway on Friday, June 10th is a regular show which will include USRA RHS Modifieds and USRA Karl Performance Parts B-Mods, alogn with Super Stocks, Street Stocks, 600 Mini Mods, Senior Mini Mods and Junior Mini Mods in racing action.
