Jeff Cutshaw won the USRA Modified feature at the Lucas Oil Speedway on Saturday, April 8, 2017.

The curtain rose on the 2017 season and the Big Adventure RV Weekly Racing Series at Lucas Oil Speedway on Saturday night with Jeff Cutshaw and Kris Jackson topping the Summit Racing USRA Weekly Racing Series main events.

A total of 125 cars checked into the pits on the pleasant early spring evening, including 44 in the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod division and 28 USRA Modifieds.

Lebanon's Jackson led the final 14 laps, holding off Billings' Shawn Strong by a car length at the finish, to prevail in the Ozark Golf Cars B-Mod feature.

Jackson slid underneath Strong in turn two on lap seven after the race's lone caution.

While he led the rest of the way as the two pulled away from the rest of the field, Jackson had to negotiate lapped traffic over the final two laps as Strong closed in.

"I have to thank my sponsors and my cousin (Tony Jackson Jr.) at TJR (Motorsports)," Jackson said. "This is the fastest I've been in a long time."

It was well back to third-place Andy Bryant.


Kris Jackson won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature at the Lucas Oil Speedway on Saturday, April 8, 2017.

Jeff Cutshaw's pursuit of a fourth straight Pitts Homes USRA Modified track championship is off and running as the Bolivar driver prevailed in the opener.

Cutshaw, who started the feature sixth, passed Kerry Davis coming out of turn four to complete lap 14 and led the rest of the way.

Davis, of Parkville, wound up second and Robbie Reed of Mexico Mo., was third.

"There's nothing better than starting out with a win on the first night," Cutshaw said. "The track was slick, but it was smooth and you could get around it pretty good."

Davis applied heavy pressure to Cutshaw over the final three laps, but was unable to get past the three-time reigning track champ.

"That was a fun race. I like racing with Kerry, he's a good guy," Cutshaw said.

The first special of the season arrives next weekend with the 4th annual Lucas Oil MLRA Spring Nationals presented by RacingJunk.com, Friday and Saturday nights. It marks the season openers for the MLRA Late Models with the USRA Modifieds and Street Stocks also on the programs. Gates will open at 5 p.m. with hot laps at 7 and racing at 7:35 p.m. both nights.
