WHEATLAND, Mo. -- With sweltering temps providing challenges to fans and drivers alike, Logan Martin and Steve Muilenburg beat the heat to score wins in their respective classes on KIX 105.7 and 92.3 BOB FM Public Safety Appreciation Night this past Saturday, Aug. 23, at the Lucas Oil Speedway.

The Pitts Homes USRA Modifieds saw Logan Martin of West Plains fight off a furious challenge from El Dorado Springs driver Chase Jones and Sparta's Steve Muilenburg to take the win as Jones took the second spot while Muilenburg settled for a third-place finish as the three-wide battle raged. Parkville's Kerry Davis made a return visit to the Lucas Oil Speedway, finishing in fourth in the final run down. Current Pitts Homes USRA Modified track points leader Jeff Cutshaw survived to finish fifth after contact earlier in the race.

The final event of the evening was the 25-lap, $500-to-win Tri-Lakes RV USRA B-Mod main event and the race had two distinct story lines. While the leaders seemed intent on providing a wild three-wide battle up front, the caution flag seemed to wave each time the battle really intensified as the track was now ultra-slick and treacherous.

Steve Muilenburg used his experience to outduel Shawn Strong and Logan Martin to finally score the win. Strong scored a second-place finish after starting in fifth while Martin slipped to third at the finish after starting on the pole. Mike Striegel of Wheatland finished in the fourth spot while Nevada's Dustin Campbell rounded out the top-5.

Tri-Lakes RV USRA B-Mod track points leader Kris Jackson suffered early-race front end damage after contact in turn 3. Jackson continued to soldier on despite the damage but finally the handling became too much and the car snapped around in turn 2, making heaving contact with the right rear of the car against the concrete retaining wall. Jackson was officially scored in the 14th position in the final rundown.
