SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- USRA Modified driver Mitch Keeter of Webb City made a move on the low side of the Springfield Raceway around leader Jerry Lankton on lap 6 to take his second win of the season Saturday night.

The feature saw four different leaders with the top 8 shuffling back and forth. Rob Muilenburg took the opening lead for two laps and then John Yeoman took charge. Lankton swung to the outside on the high groove and grabbed the lead on lap 4 until giving up the top spot to Keeter.

Lankton rallied back in the latter stages of the race to apply pressure to Keeter and gave several looks to the leader. Behind the top two were Yeoman, a fast-moving Brian Green and Muilenburg.

Reliable Chevrolet USRA B-Mod action had current USRA national points leader Scott Drake take advantage of a lap-13 caution and overtook leader Don Luna to capture their feature event.

Luna had built a large lead over the field until the caution waved for a spinning car in turn 3. As Drake made the winning pass over Luna in turn 4, Ryan Hendrix followed Drake to take over second place and gave chase for the top spot with Luna still in the hunt.

Following the top 3 to the stripe were Michael Maggard and track points leader Mike Hailmann.

Action continues next Saturday night, June 15 with racing at 7 p.m. featuring USRA Modifieds, USRA B-Mods, Legends, Pure Stocks, Midwest Moods, Young Lions Legends and Street Stocks.
