LEBANON, Mo. - 2005 Midway Speedway track champion Jamie Ragland continued his strong hold on the USRA Modifieds as Ragland started on the pole and survived some early challanges to capture his seventh USRA Modified feature win and his fourth consecutive victory at the Action Track of The Ozarks.

With Willis going into the night second in the points, a spin in turn 2 ended his chance for a track championship.

A mid race yellow saw Ragland leading with Neuman, Hudson, Jackson,, Sam Petty and Rex Merritt all battling.

On the restart, Ragland jumped to the top groove as Neuman followed closely with Jackson, Hudson and Muilenburg challenging along with Merritt.

In the closing laps, Ragland pulled away for the victory with Neuman, Jackson, Hudson and Muilenburg completing the top-5.
