Jeff Cutshaw won the USRA Modified feature.

Jeff Cutshaw served noticed Saturday night that his pursuit of a fourth straight Pitts Homes USRA Modified track championship is very much alive.

Leading wire-to-wire in a caution-free 25-lap feature, Cutshaw captured the $750 spotlight event on Fan Appreciation Night at Lucas Oil Speedway. He also earned a $350 gift card from TA/Petro Stopping Centers, which presented the program along with Ozarks CW and Ozarks Sports Zone.

Cutshaw, of Bolivar, Mo., began the night 16 points behind Jason Pursley in the points chase. The reigning champ was dominant from from his front-row starting spot following a heat-race win.

"The track was pretty good tonight," Cutshaw said. "It was fast. You could drive it in there as hard as you wanted to."

Cutshaw apologized for some post-race contact between he and Pursley on the cool-down lap. The two continued to race for a lap after the checkered flag. Pursley wound up disqualified from his eighth-place finish after starting the feature 14th.

"I ran out of (visor) tear offs as we got into lapped cars," Cutshaw said. "I couldn't see if we had took the checkered flag or not. I apologize for getting into Jason there."

Chase Jones of El Dorado Springs, Mo., finished about five car lengths behind Cutshaw. Jason Payton of Fort Smith, Ark., was third with Donnie Fellers of Wheatland, Mo., fourth and Lucas Schott of Chatfield, Minn., fifth.

Kris Jackson led all the way to grab his fourth Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature victory of the season.

"I don't know if the lap times were right, but I caught a couple of them (on the scoreboard) under caution," Jackson said. "It looks like we were pretty good tonight.

"The car drove great. This was a horsepower track and I wouldn't have had those lap times without that Ruble Racing Engine."

Making the the night even better for the Jackson family - wife Krystle celebrated her birthday and she won the track's 50/50 raffle.

Jackson started on the pole and beat outside front-row starter David Hendrix to the lead as the green flag flew. Hendrix finished a close second and division points leader Andy Bryant rallied from 15th to finish third.

Kris Jackson won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.
