Kevin Anderson won his tenth USRA Stock Car feature of the season but came up short behind Brett Heeter in the final points standings.

KANSAS CITY, Kan.—The 2015 race season officially came to a close on Friday night at the Lakeside Speedway. Kerry Davis took home the championship in the USRA Modified division and Ed Noll capped off a great season in the USRA B-Mods for the championship. In the USRA Stock Car division it was Brett Heeter celebrating his fourth track title.

But before the titles were handed out, another night of racing had to be completed.

Heading into the night the USRA Stock Car division had seen two drivers have great seasons. Both Kevin Anderson and Brett Heeter had won nine features before the finale. Would one driver break the tie or would a new face go to victory lane?

Gary Donaldson and got this one underway, and Anderson took the early advantage on the night. In the end it was a three-car battle coming down the stretch to the finish, but the battle was for second as Anderson locked up the top spot and ran away with his tenth win of the season.

Donaldson had some more success and finished with the runner-up spot ahead of the the points champ, Heeter. Fourth went to Nate Barnes and Kevin McGinnis brought home the fifth position.

Heat race winners were Donaldson and Anderson.

Luke Nieman came into the night with a slim shot at the USRA B-Mod track championship, but he needed help as Noll held a 42-point lead.

Nieman got off on the right foot at the beginning of the feature. He took the lead at the start and the only thing that he had in his control is where he would finish. He couldn’t do anything about Noll’s finishing position.

The night went exactly how it was suppose to for Nieman on the track. He wired the field and won his second feature of the season, but Noll’s ninth-place finish gave him the championship, but not before Nieman made it close (16 points) at the finish.

Shad Turner raced his way to second, Doug Keller finished third, Chad Clancy brought home fourth and Nick Newton stormed his way from tenth to finish fifth.

Heat race winners were Nieman, Turner, Clancy and Patrick Royalty. The "B" feature was won by Blake Pierce.

For the past two weeks Aaron Marrant has been on fire. He won the ULMA Late Model feature two weeks ago and last week he won the USRA Modified feature going away. People wanted to know what he was going to do this week for an encore?

How about going out and winning his second USRA Modified feature in a row and third of the season.

From the drop of the green flag, Marrant jumped on the competition and showed them no mercy again. Iowa's Ryan Ruter finished second, Darron Fuqua started on the pole and finished third, fourth went to Terry Schultz and the points leader, Davis, rounded out the top five.

Heat race winners were Marrant and Davis.
