WHEATLAND, Mo.—On a sweltering July evening, Jason Russell and Logan Martin stood tall in Andy's Frozen Custard Victory Lane on NWTF Race to Save the Hunt Night Presented by KODE 12 in Joplin at the Lucas Oil Speedway.

A great field of USRA B-Mods were on hand as NWTF and AM Best joined forces to offer up the $1,000 to win main event. After a furious race with Kris Jackson, Logan Martin once again proved to be the man to beat in 2015 as he scored a narrow win over Jackson. IMCA racer Jim Gillenwater, all the way from Keokuk, Iowa advanced one spot from his original starting position to cross the Foley Equipment finish line in the third spot. Fort Scott, Kansas' Andy Bryant worked his way to fourth after starting in 11th while Walker, Missouri's Gary Clark drove his 4G to fifth at the finish.

The final main event of the evening had a star studded field of Pitts Homes USRA Modified drivers as Logan Martin looked for a modified sweep but veteran racer and former track champion Jason Russell had other thoughts as he also utilized the topside to overtake Martin with 2 laps to go to score the win. Martin was able to hold on to second with Chanute, Kansas' John Allen working his way to third after starting in sixth. Bolivar's Jeff Cutshaw started seventh and finished fourth while Hutchinson, Kansas' Brandon Givens scored his first career top-5 as he crossed the line in the fifth spot.

Lucas Oil Speedway will be back in action next Saturday, July 25, for the Lucas Oil Monster Truck Nationals featuring Bigfoot's 40th Birthday Bash. For complete event information, please visit
