WINSTON, Mo.—With the much anticipated start to Racin for Rian Night at I-35 Speedway, the USRA B-Mods would take to the track with racing form front to back the entire feature. Heat race winner and pole sitter Ronnie Miller #76 would take the lead early until contact between he and #21c of Chad Clancy would take him from contention. Heat race number two winner Clancy would take over the top spot and race two the checkers winning Racin for Rian night in the B-Mod class for the second consecutive year. Clancy made a nice gesture giving $300 of his winnings back to the cause. Point leader Tim Eaton #211 would move through the pack and place second with “B” Feature winner Gene Claxton picking up the Hard Charger money by finishing fourth. Fifth place on the night would go to #17 of Mike Streigel. Other heat race winners were Randy Ainsworth #57 and Eddie Schwope #91.

USRA Stock Cars with $1,000 on the line to the winner would see the lead switch several time before the checker were shown. The two heat race winners Dean Wray #77 and Jeff Dixon #88 would again race side by side and wheel to wheel the entire race, never touching with the win undecided until the final lap. When the smoke had cleared Dean Wray would be standing tall in McCarty Auto Group Victory Circle holding Dixon to second. USRA National Point Leader Thomas Roberts #65x would again use poise and consistency notching a solid third place finish. Brett Heeter #05 would work traffic and bring his hot rod home fourth with Jon Boller #20x fifth. Picking up the Hard Charger money on the night was Jason Estes #997 as he would come from last on the field and be challenging for the lead before jumping the cushion in turn #1 and take him from win contention.

USRA Modifieds were high in number and quality all vying for that $1,600 pay day. Heat race winner Matt Dotson #88d would take the early lead and hold of the challenge of 2014 Racin for Rian Modified winner Kerry Davis #68. Davis would try to use heat race win momentum and the very low line as the two would battle back and forth for the lead. As the feature continued #3b of Nic Bidinger would start his charge to the front and use the extreme high line to close in on the two leaders. With two laps to go Bidinger would take the lead and race on to the checkers and victory circle. One time leader Matt Dotson would finish second and Davis third. Hard Charger award would go to fourth place finisher Dennis Elliott #29 who would have trouble in his heat race and have to start tenth row inside of the feature and race his way through the pack. Kyle Covert #7d7 would again have a good night finishing fifth. Other heat race winner was Austin Johnson #98.

I-35 Speedway would like to thank drivers and fans for making this night a great success for a good cause. We would like to thank the Wilson Family for donating two bikes that we gave away during Intermission. Congratulations to bike winners Mia Whitham and Corbin Henning, enjoy those bikes. See everyone next Saturday night for more “Dirt Trackin at its Best”!!!
