KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Tim Karrick showed everyone tonight why he has more wins, 65, than anyone else in the USRA Modified division at Lakeside Speedway.

A smooth line and consistent driving kept him ahead of a hard charging field.

Initially Shad Badder proved to be a force to reckon with until getting tangled up with a lapped car brought out a caution, sending him to the rear.

Then it was last week’s winner, Darron Fuqua, who gave Karrick a mirror-full until the end.

Trevor Hunt finished third just in front of Nic Bidinger, who started 19th and raced to 4th.

Jeremy Chambers rounded out the top-five.

The USRA B-Mod feature was equally as entertaining as newcomer to Lakeside Speedway, Doug Keller, took early command of the 15-lap feature and held off all others.

First it was last week’s feature winner, Gene Claxton, who applied pressure to Keller.

Then it was J.C. Morton and then Claxton again.

Claxton and Morton would finish second and third, respectively.

Tim Powell started eighth and finished fourth, ahead of Shadren Turner, who rounded out the top-five.

The USRA Stock Car division continued to impress everyone as the top six ran within several car lengths from each other the entire 15-lap event.

John O’Neal Jr took command early until a caution bunched the field together and then Brett Heeter took over.

Heeter went on to register his 27th win overall in the division.

O’Neal would finish 2nd to a hard-charging Kevin Anderson.

Dean Hensler edged out Sean Foster for fourth.

During the intermission, Mike Kraft, of KC Cheeseworks YouTube fame, organized a remote-controlled car race on the front stretch of Lakeside Speedway’s famed ½-mile facility.

Drivers from all four classes along with track announcer Bob Libbey competed for bragging rights.

After the 50-lap feature and with a top-speed of over 30 mph, Libbey crossed the finish-line victorious.
