WARRENSBURG, Mo.—Father’s Day weekend and Saturday racing were great ingredients for an evening of family fun on KIX 105.7 FM and Joslin’s Jewelry Night at Central Missouri Speedway. A total of 82 cars checked in for the night to compete for the coveted checkered flag celebrations in victory lane.

USRA Modifieds came out in full force with 30 drivers on hand for four outstanding heat races to begin their portion of the program. Heat one went to Aaron Marrant over Eddie Bray Jr. and Brian Johnson. Shad Badder fought off Gunner Martin and Danny Scrogham in heat two with Dalton Kirk besting Colson Kirk and Nathan Vaughn in heat three. The final heat of the night went to Ryan Middaugh ahead of Tim Karrick and Terry Schultz. With the many cars on hand, a B-main event was held to determine the final cars on the starting grid as Jason Pursley, Beau Davis, Lewis Jackson, David Wood, Justin Plumb, and Dean Bachner filled the grid.

Dalton Kirk and Shad Badder earned the front row starting positions for the USRA Modified main event. Kirk jumped out to the early lead and it seemed to be his race to win. Badder kept hounding him until Marrant snuck by Badder on the back stretch to capture the second spot. As he often does all by himself, Terry Schultz used the high to his advantage all throughout the race to enter into the mix.

Kirk looked solid all night in the lead until the final lap when Marrant found a small lane on the low side and took the lead out of turn four for the double checkers finish. Marrant topped off the second night of double feature wins with his second win of the evening as Kirk settled for a tight second place finish. Marrant also won both the Late Model and Modified win the night before at Lakeside Speedway to cap off an incredible Father’s Day weekend. Schultz was unable to make the high side work late in the race and finished third. Gunner Martin was fourth while Tim Karrick moved up from ninth to fifth to complete the top five.
