Matt Dotson prevailed in the USRA Modifield feature Saturday night.

WHEATLAND, Mo.—On $5 Night presented by KOLR Channel 10 at the Lucas Oilk Speedway, Matt Dotson (USRA Modifieds) and Andy Bryant (Out-Pace USRA B-Mods) picked up the feature wins Saturday night.

With several tracks in the region rained out, a whopping 142 cars checked into the pits including 58 Out-Pace USRA B-Mods and 40 USRA Modifieds.

In the USRA Modified feature, Dotson held off a final-lap charge for this first victory of the season. Dotson, of Hallsville, advanced from an eighth starting position and grabbed the lead midway through the 20-lapper and held it the rest of the way.

"From where I was at it was a pretty good show," Dotson said in victory lane. "The track was tricky tonight."

Dotson said he didn't enjoy seeing a caution with five laps to go after Eric Turner's car erupted in flames. Turner, running fifth at the time, escaped without injury and Dotson had enough car to hold on for the win.

Paden Phillips of Chanute, Kan., nipped Stormy Scott of Arroyo Hondo, N.M., for the runner-up spot.

The Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature saw Bryant, a high school sophomore from Fort Scott, Kan., make a lap-14 pass of Kris Jackson and go on to win his first feature of the season. Jackson, the feature winner the previous week, spun a lap later and wound up 14th.

Andy Bryant topped a 58-car field Saturday night in the Out-Pace USRA B-Mods.

Logan Martin of West Plains finished second with Billings' Shawn Strong third and J.C. Morton of Springfield impressively charging to fourth after starting 20th.

"It was a really good track, real racy," Bryant said before thanking his family and sponsors in victory lane.

Racing action resumes next Saturday with the 5th annual Impact Signs, Awnings & Wraps Open Wheel Showdown.
