WHEATLAND, Mo.—Chad Clancy (Out-Pace USRA B-Mods) and Jeff Cutshaw (USRA Modifieds) took home feature wins on opening night of the Budweiser Weekly Championship Series presented by KOZL Channel 27 Saturday at the Lucas Oil Speedway.

Before the racing program, there was a special tribute to Jake Williams, a former ULMA Late Model track champ who lost his life during the offseason. Late Model driver Jon Binning drove Williams' No. 72 race car a lap around the track after a video presentation in a ceremonial pace lap.

In the closest finish of the night, Clancy beat Kris Jackson by about a foot at the finish line to take the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod victory. Clancy, of Excelsior Springs, made a dive to the inside of Jackson coming out of turn four and just beat the Lebanon driver in a photo finish.

J.C. Morton of Springfield was close behind the top two after pushing Jackson for the lead midway through the race. Brian McGowan of Pittsburg, Kan., was fourth.

"I didn't think I had anything for him there," Clancy said. "I don't know what happened on the last corner. I cut it down and it worked. Those guys are all great to race with every week. I've never won here. I've always wanted to.

"This year is off to a great start," added Clancy, who won his third straight race after taking two wins at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan.

Bolivar's Cutshaw, the reigning USRA Modified track champ, led all the way to earn his first victory of the season and take his first step toward defending the title.

Eric Turner of Hermitage charged from deep in the field to finish second and Dylan Hoover of Vandalia was third.

Racing resumes next Saturday at Lucas Oil Speedway as KLOZ-Mix 92.7 presents round No. 2 of the Budweiser Weekly Racing Series. It's also the first $uper $aver $pecial Night of 2016 as four admissions, four hot dogs and four 20-ounce Cola-Cola products are just $30 for all fans arriving before 6:30 p.m.
