KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Tim Setzer showed everyone tonight why entering the night 33rd in points means nothing in terms of being a dominant force in the USRA Modified division at Lakeside Speedway. While initially, newcomer Lance Town, took control of the race and looked unbeatable, Setzer maintained composure, ran a consistent line and made the most of lapped traffic.

By doing this he was able to take the lead on lap-19 and ultimately achieve his first career victory at Lakesides, ½-mile facility. Town was able to hold off, 15-year-old Trevor Hunt for second while Tim Karrick battled Darron Fuqua to finish fourth at the line amongst lapped traffic.

The USRA B-Mod feature was equally as entertaining as the top three runners in the 15-lap feature were all competing for a first career victory. Initially, Lakeside regular and crowd favorites, Ed Noll and 15-year-old Shadren Turner, took command, making the crowd wonder who would hoist the trophy. First-timer Logan Martin also showed promise, never running outside of the top-four.

Unfortunately a lap-14 caution and lady-luck interfered, changing forever the complexion of the race and the ultimate outcome. On the ensuing restart, Noll, dove to the bottom of turn-one while Chad Clancy, starting third at this point, opted for the high side, using it to his advantage.

Clancy would carry his momentum on to victory lane. Martin bested Noll for third while Shadren Turner and Nick Newton rounded out the top-five.

The USRA Stock Car division continued to impress everyone as half or those that came through the B-Feature were previous A-Feature winners. Once again the full field consistently ran two and three abreast during the entire 15-lap event and winning was never a sure-thing until the checkered flag dropped. John O’Neal Jr once again took a borrowed car and drove it like he stole it, throwing caution to the wind, capturing a fourth feature win.

O’Neal needed a third of the race to take the lead from Brett Heeter and spent the rest of the race looking over his shoulder at Kevin Anderson giving it his all. Anderson and Heeter would finish second and third, respectfully. Gene Stigall found himself breathing a sigh of relief to finish fourth as Lucas Conley, who moved up from the B and started at the rear, was quickly moving forward and just about bested him for position.

“Racing on the River’S Edge” wraps up the 2014 season with the USRA National Championships next Wednesday-Saturday, Oct. 1-4.
