SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Cooler temps greeted the drivers and fans Saturday night at the Springfield Raceway with outstanding racing action all evening long.

The USRA RHS Modifieds kept the fans on the edge of their seats during the entire 20-lap feature as the race went caution-free.

Darrell Jackson took the opening lead with Billy Dalton to his outside. Three-wide action was the call all evening as Brian Green went looking for his second win of the season as he took the lead followed by John Yeoman III, Jody Tillman, Erik Maggard and Bobby Pearish.

Pearish found a spot on the top groove and started his charge to the front as defending track champion Mitch Keeter, who started 13th, was working the bottom groove and coming.

With Green and Yeoman battling, Maggard was working the low groove as Pearish was motoring the top side. On lap 12, Pearish found his way to the lead and recorded his second victory of the season with Yeoman putting on a clssic drive on the bottom groove to take home runner-up honors.

Maggard fought his way to third followed by Green and Keeter.

Action continues at the Springfield Raceway next Saturday, Aug. 6, featuring Back-To-School Night presented by Pepsi. All kids ages 12 and under will be admitted free next Saturday night, Aug. 6. Area businesses have graciously donated school suplpies to be given away at the speedway.
