WINSTON, Mo.—It was Winners Circle Championship Night Saturday at the I-35 Speedway, and the Out-Pace USRA B-Mods did not disappoint as the two heat race winners battled it out for the front.
Randy Ainsworth and Ed Noll went door to door with Steve Starmer also in the mix for the lead.
Ainsworth led every lap on his way to the feature win while Noll held off the hard challenges of Starmer to place second.
Johnny McGinnis claimed his spot up front placing fourth with Jeremy Pittsenbarger ending the night fifth.
The I-35 Speedway Out-Pace USRA B-Mod track championship for 2016 goes to Starmer.
Randy Ainsworth won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.
Holley USRA Stock Cars saw a new but familiar face in McCarthy Auto Group Winners Circle on this night of racing action.
Mich Ross charged to the front of the field and never looked back on his way to his first Holley USRA Stock Car victory of the 2016 racing season.
Jason Estes tried Ross both high and low to no avail and had to settle for second place.
Heat race winner Jon Boller Jr. ended the feature third with Ronnie Ishmael fourth and Jim Peeler fifth.
The I-35 Speedway Holley USRA Stock Car track champion for 2016 is Estes.

As is always the case at I-35 Speedway, USRA Modifieds saw a locked and loaded field of competitors doing battle.
Dennis Elliott took the early lead working the inside to perfection holding off the challenges of the other greats until Chad Lyle charged by on the outside and on to the win.
After a long and great career, Lyle has decided to hang up the helmet and what a way to end as he won both his heat race and the feature in his final race.
Elliott placed second with Darron Fuqua racing his way to third.
The always-fast Aaron Marrant finished fourth with Jessy Willard in another impressive fifth-place showing.
