Saturday night at the Lucas Oil Speedway, Kris Jackson of Lebanon, Mo., led all the way to win the 30-lap Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature, taking home $1,075.

Jackson, from his outside row two position, split front-row starters Justin Pike and Ricky Watkins just after the drop of the green and had the lead coming out of turn two on the opening lap.

The third caution of the race, on lap five, bunched the field. But the race went caution-free the rest of the way with Jackson, expertly working his way through lapped traffic in the second half of the race, pulling away to win by a straightaway's margin over Randy Zimmerman of Fort Scott, Kan.

Jackson said the victory was special because he grew up watching Larry Phillips pile up victories at Lebanon I-44 Speedway.

"I'm from Lebanon and I very seldom missed a Saturday night race growing up as a kid," Jackson said. "I remember him paddling their butts over and over again. To be honest, I didn't like him because he was so fast. That's the only reason I didn't like him.

"But I have an unbelievable respect for that man, for what he's done for racing in this area."

Jake Richards of Lansing, Kan., finished third with Donald Jackson of Lebanon, Mo., in fourth and Ryan Gillmore of Springfield, Mo., fifth.
