WARRENSBURG, Mo. -- Central Missouri Speedway returned to action Saturday night on a cool May evening. The temperatures may have been cool but the racing was anything but as 69 drivers signed in for competition on KMMO Radio Race Night.

Nineteen USRA Modifieds took to the track for three preliminary heat races with points leader Jim Moody grabbing heat one over Curt Rackers and Gunner Martin. Brian Johnson won in a wild affair in heat two ahead of Dean Wille and Joe Bradshaw. The final heat went to Danny Scrogham ahead of Shad Badder and Will Johns.

The USRA Modified ranks completed the night’s action with their 25-lap main event. Brian Johnson and Jim Moody brought the field to green with Scrogham also running inside the top three. A lap-two caution flag slowed the field and setup the restart where once again Moody held point. Another caution flew on Lap 6 while not long after Aaron Marrant was sidelined with mechanical problems on lap seven.

With each passing lap, Moody distanced himself and the rest of the field while Scrogham was let to battle Shad Badder, Gunner Martin, and Curt Rackers. Lap eight included another caution period with Moody still showing the way. Just past the halfway point caution flew again for a two car incident in turn two. Schultz, who started 19th in the race, charged his way into the top ten by lap 17.

Throughout the field drivers raced hard for every position. Some of the best racing was for fourth thru eighth, where the likes of Martin, Thompson, Rackers and Karrick were really going after it. Once the driers found their rhythm the race stayed green through to the finish. Jim Moody claimed the victory, which was his first at CMS this year. In victory lane, Moody said, “I’ve never won one of the big races here so this feels good going into next weekend, I’ve had some seconds but I’d like to get one of them wins.” Scrogham came away second followed by Badder, Martin, Rackers, Tim Karrick, Schultz and Dean Wille
