KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Seeburg Muffler Night brought out a great racing surface on a beautiful Friday night at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan.

The USRA Modifieds had a little bit of everything during the 25 laps around the half-mile race track.  Kansas City native Bubba Harvey drove his red #3 machine to the front of the field to start the feature.  Great side by side action happened all the way through the field as Nic Bidinger made his was through towards the front.  Once on the top of the world, Harvey was forced to go to the rear of the field due to his window net coming unlatched.

The 14-year-old  baby-faced hot shoe and USMTS Rookie of the Year, Trevor Hunt, made his way to the front and battled Bidinger. Hunt had his shot at Bidinger two different times as caution flags flew, but was not able to make the pass. Bidinger found his way into victory lane yet again in 2013.

The USRA B-Mods were three- and four-wide throughout the night with Brad Smith picking up yet another win in his white and blue #99.  The man of the hour was Randal Schiffelbein Jr. out of Topeka. In his first year in a USRA B-Mod, Schiffelbein held off the likes of Gene Claxton, Mike Higley and Aaron Marrant for 14 of 15 laps of the feature, all while giving Smith all he could handle.

Schiffelbein slipped up out of turn 2 on lap 4 and slipped back to finish fourth however a very positive night for the young driver. Higley came home second with Chad Feather coming home in third.

"Racing on the River’s Edge” 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 at 6:45 and the first race gets underway at 7:30.  Adult ticket prices are $12, kids ages 7-12 are $6 and children 6 and younger are admitted free.
