Steve Muilenburg earned his first Out-Pace USRA B-Mod victory of the season Saturday night at Lucas Oil Speedway.

WHEATLAND, Mo.—Ozarks racing veteran Steve Muilenburg stayed patient as other contenders fell by the wayside and drove to the featured Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mod victory Saturday night at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Youngsters also took home 55 new bicycles donated by Lucas Oil Speedway drivers, sponsors and staff.

In the USRA B-Mod feature, Sparta's Muilenburg captured his first feature win of the season by leading the final seven circuits in the 25-lap feature. He earned $500 for the victory as 48 B-Mods were on hand for the action.

Muilenburg, who started seventh, grabbed the lead on lap 18 after leaders J.C. Morton and Ryan Gillmore had two rounds of contact and neither could not continue.

Andy Bryant of Fort Scott, Kan., was second with Dylan Allen of Chanute, Kan., finishing third.

Kris Jackson and Shawn Strong battled door-to-door for the lead until a lap-five caution slowed the field. Both Jackson and Strong headed to the pits with mechanical issues, handing the lead to Andy Bryant.

Morton grabbed the lead on lap six and held it until lap 18 when Gillmore made a pass in turn two as the two cars made contact. Morton and Gillmore collided again before the lap was over, in turns three and four, bringing out the eighth caution of the race as both headed for the pits.

It marked the first time in nine features this season that Morton, the season points leader, has finished outside of the top four.

James Thompson of Springfield went from 21st to eighth. That earned him the Out-Pace Racing Products Featured Class Hard-Charger Award, a $100 product certificate and Out-Pace ball cap.

Eric Turner of Hermitage made it three USRA Mod wins in the last four races by leading all 20 laps of the night's closing feature.

Turner thanked the fans and also picked a kid out of the crowd on Kids' Night for a pair of boots from one of his sponsors, PFI Western Wear and Boot Daddy Boots.

Jon Sheets of Nevada was a distant second and Bolivar's Jeff Cutshaw, who continues to hold a narrow season points lead over Turner, finished third.

Eric Turner won the USRA Modified feature.
