YELLVILLE, Ark. -- Racin’ for a Cure was the theme for the evening Friday as North Central Arkansas Speedway again played host to the annual fund-raising event benefiting the American Cancer Society. A strong field of cars entered the pits in support of the effort, and a generous crowd came out for the evening’s program which raised almost $3,000 towards the fight against cancer.

With $1,000 on the line for the win, the USRA B-Mod feature race was paced to the starting flag by Steve Muilenburg with Derek Brown outside the front row. The field raced cleanly through turns one and two but a two car incident in turn four brought on the yellow lights before the first lap was completed. On the second attempt to get running Muilenburg got out in front with Brown settling down in the second spot in front of Kris Jackson in third.

Jackson took over second on lap 2 and pressured Muilenburg in every corner until the caution lights came on for Brown coming to a stop in turn 2 on lap 6. Jackson used the restart to apply even more pressure to Muilenburg and finally moved to the lead using the high side of the track on lap 7. Jason Brigman started inside the fifth row and slowly picked off cars as the laps passed, moving into third on a restart for a single-car incident in turn 4 on lap 8.

A pair of cautions dotted the final twenty-two laps of the race allowing for some tight races for position through the field but as the last laps were scored Jackson pulled away for the win. Muilenburg finished second and Brigman ended up in third.
