Mark Schafman celebrates after winning the USRA Modified feature on Friday, Aug. 3, at the Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan.

It was a thrilling night for the next-generation of race fans for Kid’s Night presented by Travelers Protection Agency at Lakeside Speedway. The pit area filled with 14 USRA Modifieds, 15 Holley USRA Stock Cars and 29 Out-Pace USRA B-Mods.

The night began with qualifying heat races in all divisions as drivers were in pursuit of main event starting-grid positions.

For the Rick Beebe Heating & Air Smokin’ Hot Summer Series presented by Prime Racing Products, the Holley USRA Stock Cars continued the heat races as Jake Newman drove from the back to the front and collected the opening heat win over Jaylen Wettengel. ‘Coach’ Kevin Anderson was victorious in heat 2 as he took the win over Cletus Murray.

After an exciting intermission break in which the Kid’s Night activities took the spotlight for foot races on the track, bike giveaways and bus rides around the track, the Holley USRA Stock Cars lined up for their 15-lap feature event. After an early yellow flag, Tim Shields grabbed the lead until another yellow-flag restart saw 12th-starting Heeter grab the point. In the late stages of the race, Heeter pulled away with Anderson also breaking free into second. Despite heavy contact with the wall coming for the checkered flag due to mechanical issues, Heeter went on to collect his eighth win of the year ahead of Anderson, Shields and Wettengel.

Blake Pierce commanded the opening Out-Pace USRA B-Mod heat and took the win over Luke Nieman while Andy Bryant dominated heat 2 for the victory with Austin Charles finishing second. In heat 3, Brad Smith was strong and came away with the victory ahead of Jayden Bears. The final Out-Pace USRA B-Mod heat went to Tim Powell with a new powerplant under the hood as he bested Dustin Crist.

Pierce and Bryant started the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod 20-lap main event on row 1 and the pair were strong early until Powell moved forward. Bryant pulled out of contention by lap four as Pierce put pressure on Powell at the front by lap seven on the high side.

Pierce grabbed the lead by lap 9 but Powell returned the favor the next lap and went on to collect his eighth win of the season over Pierce’s outstanding run to second. Patrick Royalty and Smith were third and fourth.

USRA Modifieds completed the heat races for the night with a pair of events as Justin Johnson easily collected the opening heat victory over Kerry Davis. The final heat went to former track champion Nic Bidinger with Gunner Martin finishing second.

USRA Modifieds closed out the exciting night with their 20-lap main event with Lucas Gibbs and Martin showing the way to start the race. Martin led early on until Mark Schafman showed a burst of speed into turn 1, grabbing the lead.

After a lap-5 caution, Bidinger came into the picture in a classic battle with Martin for second. Mark Dotson also advanced forward by lap 9 but misfortune struck Dotson a couple laps later as he contacted the wall off turn 4, causing him to drastically slow down the front-stretch and leaving Martin nowhere to go as the two made heavy contact.

Both drivers were okay and Martin later returned to the race after repairs as Dotson was forced to retire. When the race resumed Davis was the man on the move behind Schafman and Bidinger as he advanced to third. In the end, Schafman claimed his second feature win of the year holding off Bidinger, Davis and Johnson.
