WARRENSBURG, Mo.—Sizzling hot and threatening weather did not keep the race fans and drivers from their Saturday night racing fix at Central Missouri Speedway (CMS) Saturday for Better Country KIX 105.7 and Budweiser Night.

Fans were anxious to see their favorite drivers compete for the weekly championship wins on a night that saw some new faces in the winner’s circle, including Robbie Reed of Mexico, Mo., who captured his first-ever CMS win in USRA Modified action.

Pure Stocks started off the heat racing action to place drivers into their respective feature starting spots with Leroy Morrison claiming the first heat with first time visiting driver Cody Satterwhite from Topeka, Kansas and Rob Gard trailing at the finish. For heat number two, Jeremiah Wilson passed Jason Cochran on the last lap for the win with Darrin Christy third.

USRA Modifieds competed for their weekly $1,000 to-win feature event with 19 drivers on hand for three preliminary heat races to establish the starting grid for their 25-lap feature event. Aaron Marrant won in convincing fashion in heat one with Gunner Martin and Dean Wille in tow. Reed won heat two ahead of John Allen and Terry Schultz. The third and final heat of the night went to Kyle Westerhold for his first win at CMS this year followed by Nick Pence and Eddie Bray Jr.

The USRA Modified drivers closed the night out for their 25-lap main event with the top heat race passing point’s drivers leading the field to the green. Reed and Marrant battled early side by side for the lead until Reed established himself as the clear-cut leader.

Several early cautions caused some scrambling for drivers inside the top five with Gunner Martin and Terry Schultz both involved in an early race skirmish. Schultz later charged back to a seventh-place finish after returning; however, Martin’s night came to an early end as he took his car back to the pits.

Reed immediately reestablished his top spot on the restart with Jim Moody now adding pressure to Marrant for second. Moody moved into the second spot with Marrant settling into third. Reed had accumulated six victories at various tracks this season but had not claimed a CMS main event, until this night when he rolled to the front of the field for his second win of the weekend after capturing the win at Callaway Raceway on Friday night near Fulton, Missouri. Moody didn’t miss a beat upon his return to CMS competition and moved up from the sixth row into second, Marrant stayed in third with John Allen, Eric Turner and Danny Scrogham completing the top-six at the finish.

Next week at CMS is the ever-popular Kid’s Night at the Races. Donations for the event are being collected from the racing family. The event takes place on Saturday, August 1st. Donations are requested to stuff goodie bags that all kids up to the age of 12 will receive on their big night. Planned events for the kids include a chance to win bicycles and backpacks, plus 6 different age groups in boys and girls divisions will compete in foot races on the track during intermission. Donated items may be dropped off at the track up until 10 a.m. on the morning of August 1.

Every child up to age 12 in attendance will receive a free hot dog and drink and every child will go home with a goodie bag stuffed full of various school supplies, trinkets, coupons, and other surprises. To donate to kid’s night, bring items to the races on July 25th or drop them off at the track on the morning of August 1st by 10 a.m., prior to the track staff making final arrangements for the event and filling the bags with donated items. Look for the special tab on the CMS website titled “Kids Night Info for August 1st.”
