WARRENSBURG, Mo. -- The grand re-opening season at Central Missouri Speedway (CMS) came to an exciting conclusion last night when 90 cars in five divisions competed in 20 total races. USRA Modified drivers took part in two main events in which Jim Moody claimed the postponed Labor Day weekend $1,500-to-win, 35-lap special while Dustin Boney drove to victory in the weekly racing $1,000-to-win a-main.

A total of 21 USRA Modifieds competed third on the night in heat-race action. In recapping the regular race program heat races, Darron Fuqua of Mayetta, Kansas came from fourth on the grid to claim heat one in front of Tyler Schmidt and Matt Johnson. Odessa, Missouri’s Jim Moody drove to the win in heat two over Aaron Marrant and Jason Bodenhamer while Dustin Boney came from the tail of the field in heat three to take the checkers ahead of Dean Wille and Jason Thompson.

Once intermission concluded after the heat races, USRA Modifieds returned to the track for the makeup of the postponed Labor Day weekend $1500-to-win event. Schmidt and Moody brought the field to the initial green flag as Moody quickly assumed command of the opening laps. Shad Badder made his way to second by lap five with Schmidt third and Johnny Fennewald fourth. Moody continued setting a blistering pace over the field as he began to pull away. Meanwhile Badder and Schmidt raced hard inside the top three to try and keep pace with Moody’s torrid pace.

The race ran green until lap 16 when caution flew for the first time with Moody leading Badder, Schmidt, Dean Wille, and Jason Bodenhamer inside the top five. Badder maintained his second spot through lap 25 with Schmidt, Wille and Bodenhamer in tow, all behind leader Moody. On back, eighteenth-starting Dustin Boney advanced to the seventh spot by lap 30 with fourteenth-starting Aaron Marrant in sixth.

Over the final five laps Moody simply dominated the field and ultimately recorded his second special-event win of the year at CMS and his sixth main-event win. Badder had a solid run to the runner-up finish with Schmidt in third, Wille fourth and Bodenhamer fifth. Rounding out the top ten were Marrant, Boney, Fennewald, Tim Karrick and Matt Johnson.

USRA Modifieds returned to the field for the final event of the 2014 season for the regular race program portion of their competition. The front row was made up of Gower, Missouri’s Dustin Boney and Mayetta, Kansas’ Darron Fuqua. These two drivers set sail for the 25-lap main event with full intentions on taking the win. Fuqua was strong on the high side with Boney running the preferred low line in the opening laps.

Matt Johnson, Jim Moody, and Tyler Schmidt all ran inside the top five behind the lead pair through lap five. By lap ten, Fuqua was still close to Boney trying to figure out a way around the leader. On lap 12, fourth-running Moody’s car suffered engine woes as he exited the track in a plume of heavy smoke bringing his bid for two wins in one night to a bitter end. Dean Wille also suffered mechanical issues as his top ten run came to an end on the same lap.

For the restart Boney led Fuqua, Schmidt, Johnson, and Terry Schultz to the green flag. Fifth-starting Bodenhamer’s night came to a disappointing end after close-quarters racing contact with Badder in turn four sent him to the back for the restart; Bodenhamer ultimately rebounded to finish eleventh. By lap 15 Boney stretched out his lead on Fuqua who was now under pressure from Schmidt as the pair ran hard for second.

For the final ten laps of the race Boney seemed to be on cruise control as a furious battle ensued for the runner-up spot between Schmidt, Fuqua, and Matt Johnson. Boney masterfully worked his way through lapped traffic keeping any pursuers behind him and eventually went on to claim his second feature win of the year at CMS.

Tyler Schmidt put in another solid performance to finish a strong second followed by Fuqua in third. Johnson ran strong all evening and came away fourth with USRA National point’s leader Terry Schultz fifth. On back were Badder, Marrant, and Dalton Kirk from seventeenth on the grid, Jason Thompson, and Tim Karrick.

Next up for CMS is the Third Annual Hog Roast, which takes place on Saturday, September 27 beginning at 7 p.m. in the CMS Tech Barn on the pit side of the speedway. There will be food, fun, music, and games for all in attendance and a bar available. A $5 cover charge will be collected at the door.
