Shad Badder is joined by family and crew members in victory lane after winning the USRA Modified feature on Saturday, Aug. 22, at the Central Missouri Speedway.

WARRENSBUG, Mo.—Saturday evening was another fantastic weather night for local race fans and drivers to enjoy an evening of racing at Central Missouri Speedway on Comfort Inn Warrensburg Station Night. After a rainy start to the race season earlier this year, the last two months have been excellent for race fans to witness some of the close racing CMS drivers have produced over the last few weeks.

On Saturday evening, Shad Badder capped a dreamlike weekend with a $1,000 victory in the USRA Modifieds.

Twenty-one drivers competed in three preliminary heat races to setup the starting grid for their $1,000-to-win weekly payout purse. Jake Brewer drove to the win in heat one with Grant Junghans and Jared Rogers in tow. Traveling USMTS driver Cory Crapser was on top and won in heat two ahead of Gunnar Martin and Matt Dotson. The third and final heat of the night went to Shad Badder followed by Jason Bodenhamer and Darron Fuqua.

All 21 USRA Modified drivers entered the track to compete in the 25-lap main feature. Two USMTS drivers, Crapser and Junghans, joined a solid field of Missouri and Kansas drivers as Badder and Crapser led the front of the field early in the race.

Badder led the first few laps then Crapser was able to get by him on the low side to grab the top spot. However, Badder fought back again a lap later and grabbed the lead again. Junghans also moved into the mix with Matt Dotson eventually making his move past Junghans into the top three. Gunnar Martin hung tough in the top five for most of the race.

Badder was tested on several occasions but with each attempt to pass him he turned back the challenges and brought home his first CMS feature win this season. Crapser stuck a nose in for the lead several times throughout the event but ended up with a solid second. Dotson hung onto third with Junghans , Martin and Tim Karrick moving up from eighth starting spot into the top six.

Cory Crapser tries to chase down eventual winner Shad Badder in the USRA Modified main event.

Next weekend includes weekly racing for USRA Modifieds, Street Stocks and B-Mods, and Pure Stocks on KRLI 103.9 and KAOL 101.3 Race Night on Saturday.
