WARRENSBURG, Mo.—Central Missouri Speedway’s Warrensburg Chamber of Commerce Night drew a solid crowd to the grandstands for competition in USRA Modified, Street Stock, B-Mod and Pure Stock divisions. All total, 69 drivers competed throughout the night in the four divisions.

The ‘Mighty’ Modifieds were last to hit the track for their qualifying heat races with Steve Twenter pulling off a huge win over Tim Karrick and Tyler Shaw. Kevin Blackburn claimed the second heat race over Donnie Fellers and Lewis Jackson, while Shad Badder flew the checkers in heat three over Gunner Martin and Nathan Vaughn.

The night closed with a 25-lap USRA Modified main event. Kevin Blackburn and Sedalia, Missouri driver Steve Twenter started the night up front to lead the field to green after a couple of false starts slowed the event. Blackburn and Badder had a whale of a battle near the front for the entire race distance and also while in the lead. Just when everyone thought it would be a Blackburn/Badder duel to the finish, Gunner Martin blasted around both drivers on the low side off turn two.

Travis Ruff drew a caution early in the event as Martin continued to leave Badder, Lewis Jackson, and Tyler Shaw. Former USRA National Champion Matt Dotson was an early retiree as was Matt Plumb. A lap 8 caution involved Nick Pence, Small, Wille, David Wood, and Jimmy Eaton. Martin led the fast-paced field to the green while keeping a short time later another caution flew a lap later for the 1x car of Matt Johnson and #68 Dean Wille. Additional cautions flew on 9, 14, and 15.

In the end, it was Martin, who stepped up his game from last season grabbing a huge victory over Badder, Blackburn, thirteen-starting Terry Schultz, Karrick, and Tyler Schmidt. All classes return again next weekend for University of Central Missouri (UCM) race night. All UCM students with a valid student I.D. will receive $5 for the grandstands. Stay tuned to future CMS press releases this coming week for more information.
