FLIPPIN, Ark. -- Another extremely warm summer evening had the fans again arriving late, but those in attendance were treated to some intense racing action Friday at North Central Arkansas Speedway.

Marvin Forrest and Rusty Weir paced the field to the start of the fast paced USRA Modified feature event. Forrest narrowly led Weir to the line on lap one, with Jason Snodgrass, John Briggs and Rob Muilenburg three-wide behind the top two cars. Briggs took over the third spot on lap 3, but Stephen Muilenburg was moving up through the field, passing Briggs and Weir for second on lap 5.

A single-car spin on lap 7 bunched the field putting Stephen Muilenburg on the back bumper of Forrest for the restart. Forrest and Muilenburg pulled away from the pack as the race resumed, and Kandy Methvin was able to get into fourth on lap 10 before a flat tire would take him out of the race and bring the yellow lights to the track on lap 13.

With the field once again close together, drivers fought for every spot and Stephan Muilenburg was able to get past Forrest on lap 15 for the lead. Rob Muilenburg ran in the top 5 most of the race, fighting with Snodgrass and Briggs for position in the middle portion of the event until another caution slowed the proceedings on lap 18.

As the drivers accelerated for the restart, Rob Muilenburg got down to the very bottom of the speedway, passing Forrest for second on lap 19 as Snodgrass and Briggs fought for fourth to the finish line.
