WARRENSBURG, Mo. -- Mother Nature dealt a hot one for fans in the stands and drivers on hand for 98.5 FM ‘The Bar’ night at the races. Sixty-seven came through the CMS gates in five divisions including 16 USRA Modifieds as drivers competed in regular weekly championship racing one week after the special-events held during the Independence Day weekend.

Finishing out the preliminary heat races were the USRA Modifieds, who also competed in a pair of eight-car heat races to determine their main event starting grid. Brian ‘Back in Black’ Johnson put on a domination clinic for the opening heat race for the USRA Modifieds with Dean Wille edging Tim Karrick in a classic battle to the line for second and third. For the final heat race of the night, Jim Moody went from fourth on the grid to first in a matter of a lap-and-a-half to beat Terry Schultz and Gunner Martin to the line as preliminary action completed.

With last week’s outstanding feature event still weighing heavily on the minds of many CMS returns this week, the grid for the main event pulled onto the track for the closing race of the night. Schultz led early with Moody and Brian Johnson filing in just behind the leader. A lap-two caution flag waived over the field for Dean Wille, who came to a halt on the front stretch but was able to continue on in the event.

The spectacular racing continued through lap ten as Schultz remained out front over Moody in second and Tim Karrick third. Karrick’s night nearly came to an end as he went over the turn embankment, ultimately re-starting at the tail of the field.

By lap 20, Moody regained the lead from Schultz as the pair continued to thrill the fans with yet another race set to come down to the wire. I late-race caution flew on lap twenty as the man on the move was former champion Aaron Marrant who by now made his way to third. Dalton Krik also ran solidly inside the top four all race long.

To close out the event, the field was stopped twice more by single-car spins and each time Schultz was able to hold his line and eventually crossed the line first over Moody, Marrant, Kirk, Karrick, who rebounded to claim fifth, and Brian Johnson inside the top six.

In victory lane, Shultz said, “We’ve had a lot of bad luck the last few weeks. I’m just glad things seem to be working right.”

It was Schultz’s third CMS win this year and 54th of his career at CMS and first USRA-sanctioned win since last winning at CMS on May 31. Schultz now has seven USRA wins on the year at five separate tracks.

Next week at CMS on Saturday, July 19 is 95.3 KDKD Night at the Races featuring USRA modifieds, b-Modifieds, Street Stocks, Pure Stocks, and guest class the Allstar Midget Series. CMS is now accepting donations for the annual kid’s night at the races on August 2 to include small toys, school supplies, kid-related goodies, candy, or cash donations.
