Lucas Schott won the USRA Modified feature.

WHEATLAND, Mo.—Young Lucas Schott has enjoyed a banner season up north in his USRA Modified.

Saturday night, the Minnesota native made a long road trip pay off.

Schott earned his first victory at Lucas Oil Speedway—and 11th of the season—by capturing the Pitts Homes USRA Modified 25-lap feature for a $750 payoff.

Also claiming feature victories on Travel Centers of America Fan Appreciation Night presented by Petro Stopping Centers was Shawn Strong (Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mods).

A total of 112 cars checked into the pits on the pleasant evening, the final chance for drivers to advance in the points chase ahead of the season championships next week.

Schott, who celebrated his 20th birthday earlier this month, had to put in some extra work after appearing to have the race won as he took the white flag. But the second caution of the race put his celebration on hold - as did another yellow flag on the first attempt at a restart.

But Schott finally was able to exhale, holding off Cutshaw on a one-lap shootout. Cutshaw, the series points leader who's nearing a repeat of his 2015 track title, pulled to the back bumper of Schott but was unable to get past.

"There are a lot of good guys here," Schott said of the Lucas Oil Speedway regulars. "Starting sixth, I was a little worried. There were a lot of fast guys up front. I just stayed up top and I'm glad I had a good restart" at the finish.

Aaron Marrant of Richmond finished third with Sparta's Steve Muilenburg grabbing fourth.

Bolivar's Cutshaw took the lead from Dylan Hoover on the second lap and was in command until Schott drove past on the high side coming out on turn four to complete lap 19.

Muilenburg captured the Out-Pace Racing Products Featured Class Hard Charger Award after starting 14th. He earned a $100 product certificate and Out-Pace ball hat.

Shawn Strong of Billings continue his late-season surge, earning his second straight Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mod victory.

Strong started on row two and grabbed the lead on lap three. He held it the remainder of way, despite four cautions that bunched the field. Parker Hale of Grand Meadow, Minn., was second.

"The car was really good and it was an awesome race track," Strong said. "I was getting worried with about five to go. The motor, something happened and it would barely run."

Prior to his wins, Strong had back-to-back second-place feature finishes.

Fifteen-year-old Kaeden Cornell of Willard held off season points leader J.C. Morton of Springfield in a tight battle for third. It was Cornell's best finish of his B-Mod career at Lucas and his fourth straight top-five.

Shawn Strong won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

Up next: The regular season concludes and track champs will be crowned next Saturday. It will be Bill Roberts Chevrolet-Buick Season Championship Night Presented by KYOO-Your Country 99 & KPOW-Power 97.7.
