Shad Badder won the USRA Modified feature.

WARRENSBURG, Mo.—Saturday evening weather was more enjoyable this weekend for race fans and drivers on KMZU 100.7 FM Night at Central Missouri Speedway (CMS). The racing surface was multi-grooved and fast as 78 drivers pushed their racing machines to their limits to entertain the fans throughout the evening.

The weekly racing series feature winners included Shad Badder from Blue Springs in the USRA Modified division as he claimed his second feature win of the season.

In the always exciting and highly competitive USRA Modified heat races, the fans watched their favorite of 22 drivers registered compete in three heat races. Lewis Jackson powered ahead to the win in heat one just ahead of Brian Johnson and Darron Fuqua. Robbie Test crossed the finish line in front of Lucas Conley and Jimmy Dean Eaton in heat two. In the final heat of the evening, Gunner Martin charged ahead to the checkers with Shad Badder and Kevin Blackburn in the top three.

The 22 USRA Modified drivers once again entertained race fans as Gunner Martin led the early portion of the 25-lap feature from pole position. After several early race cautions, Martin stayed on the low side while Lewis Jackson mastered the high side to grab the lead from Martin. Then, later in the race, Shad Badder took the advantage to grab the lead from Jackson. There were at least two distinct lines both high and low that the drivers were using to their advantage. Kevin Blackburn also used both low and high side moves to work his way up from his third row inside starting spot.

As the final checkers of the night flew, Badder pulled away for his second feature win of the year. Jackson kept his strong night going with a solid run to second while point’s leader Blackburn finished third, Martin was fourth while Brian Johnson hung on for a solid run into fifth.
