WARRENSBURG, Mo.—Championship racing continues in all divisions along with guest class ULMA Late Models this Saturday at Central Missouri Speedway.

After last week’s focus was on the youngsters for Kids Night. This week the attention turns back to the races for the weekly track championships and the overall title for the visiting ULMA Late Model drivers celebrating their 10th anniversary of racing.

Kevin Blackburn posted a rare finish outside of the top five last week but still holds the top spot in this week’s USRA Modified standings, trying to become the first father-son duo to win a CMS Modified championship.

Kevin’s father, Gary Blackburn, was crowned champion in 2004 and 2005.

USRA Modified Points (top 5):
1. 26k Kevin Blackburn, Fulton ... 1414
2. 75 Gunner Martin, Blue Springs ... 1316
3. 97k Brian Johnson, Independence ... 1087
4. 92 Danny Scrogham, Peculiar ... 1075
5. 12v Nathan Vaughn, Sedalia ... 1034
