SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A field of 138 race teams were on hand Saturday night at the Springfield Raceway for the Larry Phillips Memorial presented by Joplin's Home Pro.

Erik Maggard of Brighton was untouchable as he jumped from his front row pole spot to lead every lap in the $500-to-win USRA RHS Modified feature. Maggard, the runner-up in track points standings, survived a couple of restarts from Travis Smith and went untouched in the 20-lap feature. Smith made a strong showing in grabbing the runner-up honors while Robbie Bryant charged to finish third with 2010 champion Mitch Keeter and 2011 champion Jackie Dalton following.

Next up at the Springfield Raceway will be the action-packed Bordertown Casino OctoberFast on Saturday, Oct. 15. The special high-paying event will feature USRA RHS Modifieds, plus B-Mods, Midwest Modz, Legends Cars, Pure Stocks and Bombers, along with the Battle of Law Enforcement race to help raise money for 1 Missing Link and the popular Bordertown Money drop during intermission for some lucky race fans.
Pit gates will open at 10:30 a.m. with the grandstands opening at 1 p.m. Hot laps begin at 2 and racing starts at 3 p.m.

Last season this event drew over 140 races teams and over 20 law enforcement race teams. This season the event will pay $1,222 to the USRA RHS Modified feature winner.
