KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Gene Claxton made the most of a consistent line and Mother Nature to win the McCarthy Auto Group opening night feature for the USRA B-Mods on Sunday night at the Lakeside Speedway.

Claxton, who started inside row 3, needed only a handful of laps before taking the lead of the rain-shortened event. Richard Layne and Jake Richards, who battled most of the race side by side, finished second and third, respectfully.

Frank Littrell and Mike Higley rounded out the top 5.

Just shortly after the Factory Stock feature, torrential rains hit Lakeside Speedway to force an abrupt end to the planned events. The USRA Modified and Grand National features will be made up at a later date.

Racing continues every Friday night through October with the USRA Modifieds and USRA B-Mods, plus Grand Nationals and Factory Stocks. Gates open at 5 p.m., hot laps are at 6:45 and the first race gets underway at 7:30 p.m. Adult ticket prices are $12, kids ages 7-12 are $6 and children 6 and younger are admitted free. Seniors and military personnel with ID are admitted for $10.
