WARRENSBURG, Mo.—Week two of the 2016 race season produced exciting racing for fans throughout the evening on University of Central Missouri Night at CMS. Matt Johnson of Archie claimed the USRA Modified feature for his first victory the season.

This week the fans were entertained to close-quarters racing action in the highly competitive USRA Modified heat races as drivers attempted to maximize passing points with their heat race finishes. Shad Badder edged Brian Johnson and Eddie Bray, Jr., in heat one. Tim Karrick crossed the line ahead of Matt Johnson and Terry Schultz in heat two. The final heat of the night had Darron Fuqua taking the checkers in front of Kevin Blackburn and Gunner Martin.

The USRA Modifieds once again showed their skills on the multi-grooved and smooth surface as Shad Badder led the early portion of the 25-lap feature. Brian Johnson and Kevin Blackburn battled early up front in the top three. Tim Karrick was also in the mix in the top five along with Darron Fuqua utilizing the high side of the track. Matt Johnson then started his move to the front also using the high side to eventually grab the lead on lap 11 and held on until the end. Terry Schultz’s car slowed on the restart on turn four, which led to some chain reaction damage for Dean Wille, who had to leave the race with heavy damage. When the race returned to green-flag conditions, the side-by-side, lap-after-lap battles were intense among drivers inside the top five as Badder, Matt Johnson, Blackburn, Fuqua, and Chad Lyle raced inside the top five.

Johnson proved to be resilient as the double checkers flew when he drove into victory lane with a well-deserved USRA feature win, his first at CMS this year. Badder hung onto second while Blackburn edged out Fuqua at the line for a tight third place finish. Chad Lyle advanced from eleventh on the starting grid to score a solid fifth-place finish.
