Keith Foss won the USRA Modified feature.

After Mother Nature doused the hopes of race fans the prior Friday evening, Mississippi Thunder Speedway came back for a second week and ramped up the excitement in order to bring the 9th Annual Rivercity Rumble to the fans and racers alike.

As the evening closed, fans witnessed impressive battles throughout the large count of competitors and for every position on the track, wrapped up with Ryan Olson and Keith Foss grabbing the huge hardware and large payout as winners of the Rivercity Rumble features.

Foss used some daring moves and took advantage of some congestion to speed past Lucas Schott and cash in on a $3,000 payday.

Foss started ninth in the 25-car field and slipped to 10th before making his charge. Schott was on the pole with Jake Timm in the middle and USMTS star Zack VanderBeek on the outside. Schott took a commanding lead, but as he appeared to be on his way to a commanding victory, Foss was working through the field.

With about seven laps left in the 30-lap feature, Schott caught the tail end of the field and began trying to find his way through lapped traffic. Foss moved to the high groove to work past the lapped traffic and Schott with two laps left to take the lead and hold on for the win.

“I can’t tell you how happy I am,” Foss said in victory lane. “Running second behind Luke was actually what gave me the win. I was able to watch his choice as he got to the lapped traffic. Unfortunately for him, he went to the middle and that didn’t work out for him. Worked great for me, though.”

Schott finished second, followed by Timm, VanderBeek and three-time track champion Josh Angst.

Thirty cars battled it out in a 30-lap Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature with a $2,500 winner's share of the purse up for grabs.

Olson jumped into the lead at the drop of the green flag and stayed on the extreme high groove the entire race. He was inches off the outside concrete retaining wall in turns 1-2 and well ahead of the field to win the feature.

“In years past, that extra 20 feet of race track wasn’t there,” Olson said in victory lane. “But I used all of the extra race track and banking tonight. Bob Timm and his crew laid out a perfect race track tonight.”

Aaron Olson won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

Former track champion Erik Kanz started on the pole and finished second. Defending track champion Ben Moudry was third, while Jason Schlangen made a push from the middle of the fifth row to finish fourth. Dan Hovden was fifth.

Lance Hofer, a 2015 track champion, won another USRA Late Model feature, and although he led from start to finish it wasn’t easy.

Tony Bahr worked his way through the field to challenge Hofer, but Hofer fended it off to grab the feature win. Bahr was second, followed by 2016 track champion Justin Sass, Ryan Konkel and Mark Teske.

Steve Dwyer won the USRA Hobby Stock feature, holding off points leader Steve Holthaus.
