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

Shawn Strong pulled away from Andy Bryant over the final seven laps after a race-long duel between the pair, capturing the featured Ozark Golf Cars USRA B-Mod main event Saturday night at Lucas Oil Speedway.

Strong, of Republic, took home $500 for the win on Ozarks Coca-Cola/Dr. Pepper Night at the Races Presented by KOLR 10 and Z27. A total of 145 cars checked into the pits after skies cleared earlier in the day.

"That was a lot of fun," said Strong, who is driving a new Larry Shaw Race Car this season. "That track's got a lot of character. I messed up. He messed up. We all messed up. But in the end, I was able to hold on.

"This is a new car. It's a Larry Shaw Race Car that he let me put some of my input into it. So far, so good. I have to thank Jim Ruble of Ruble Race Engines. Without him, this is not possible."

Strong and Bryant started on the front row with Strong grabbing the lead as the two quickly separated themselves from the field until a caution flag came out on lap eight.

That bunched the field, with Cody Jolly in third and Jake Richards in fourth. Bryant, of Fort Scott, Kan., pressured Strong after the restart, pulling alongside several times over the next three laps before finally making an outside pass for the lead to finish lap 13.

Then it was Strong's turn to turn up the heat on Bryant, making bids to regain the lead over the next three laps before the second caution waved. Meanwhile, Kris Jackson worked his way up to fourth after starting 13th.

Strong drove back past Bryant on lap 18 as Richards and Jackson chased the duo. That's the way it would end as Strong - after finishes of second and fourth this season - gradually pulled away to take his first feature win of 2017 and snap Jackson's two-race winning streak in the division.

David Hendrix earned the Out-Pace Racing Products Hard Charger Award ($100 product certificate) as he finished ninth after starting 23rd.

Veteran Terry Phillips, making a rare Weekly Racing Series appearance, dominated the final 10 laps to pull away from Mitch Keeter for the Pitts Homes USRA Modified win.

Springfield's Phillips started on the pole and led the first five laps until Keeter slid past him and into the lead on lap six. Keeter opened up a comfortable lead that was wiped out with a lap-10 caution flag.

Phillips, who will be racing his Late Model in next week's Show-Me 100 Presented by ProtecttheHarvest.com, took advantage and regained the lead after the restart and dominated the last half of the race.

"That's about a four-year-old car of mine I was racing against," Phillips said of Keeter. "He made me work for it. I think we made some headway here."


Terry Phillips won the USRA Modified feature.

Phillips noted that he was prepping his USRA Modified for some high-paying shows out of state next month.

"We had a night off so we thought we'd bring it here and try some stuff," Phillips said.

Terry Schultz of Sedalia finished third and Jim Moody of Odessa was fourth.
