WARRENSBURG, Mo.—Summer-like temps and great racing greeted fans in attendance on 95.3 FM KDKD Radio and Joslin’s Jewelry Night Saturday evening at the Central Missouri Speedway. A total of 92 cars checked in for the night including 28 USRA Modifieds.

USRA Modifieds were in full force on Saturday with four preliminary heat races to begin their portion of the program. Heat one went to Fulton’s Kevin Blackburn over Shad Badder and Eric Turner.

Danny Scrogham fought off Gunner Martin and Jason Bodenhamer in heat two with Chad Lyle besting Terry Schultz and Lewis Jackson in heat three.

The final heat of the night went to David Wood ahead of Brian Johnson and Tim Karrick.

A "B" main event sorted out the final three rows of the USRA Modified grid with Dean Wille capturing the victory.

Badder and Martin earned the front row starting positions for the USRA Modified main event. Badder entered the night as the points leader while Martin has already claimed a victory this season. Badder set a blistering pace early on the event with Martin, Lyle and Blackburn securing positions inside the top five.

On lap seven, Jim Moody, who was debuting a new car for the first time this season, spun to avoid catastrophe in turn four to draw an early caution, which ultimately relegated him to the tail of the field for the restart. Badder led Lyle, Martin, Blackburn and Karrick.

A lap later, Nathan Vaughn and Scotty Martin experienced troubles with Lyle still pacing the field. Badder’s night went from great to one he would just soon forget if given the choice as he spun in turn two to draw another caution on lap 13. By this time Lyle had seized the point with Blackburn, Karrick, Marrant, and Schultz.

The cars ran without a caution flag until the No. 33 of Lyle paced the field in front of Blackburn, Karrick, Marrant and Schultz. While nothing changed with the top two in the order, a furious battle between Karrick, Marrant and Schultz ensued as the trio of drivers did all they could to hold on inside the top five.

In the end, it was Lyle, who said, “this is my last year of racing,” in victory lane after taking the checkered flag. For the record, it is Lyle’s 33rd year of racing.

Blackburn recorded a third straight top-five run in second. Schultz advanced from twelfth to third by race end while Karrick claimed the fourth position. Marrant, Turner, Gunner Martin, Eddie Bray Jr, Brian Johnson and Wille completed the top ten.
