FOUNTAIN CITY, Wis. - No one knew quite what to expect with the 30-lap features ahead with a mandatory 10-minute pit stop at 15 laps, but Josh Angst proved to be the man to beat in the USRA Modifieds.

Winona Auto Sales, The Jail House Saloon, and River City Manufacturing & Machining stepped up to offer an increased payout for the first annual Pit Stop Challenge. Prize giveaways, bikes and more were offered during the night for the last race before the season-ending Mississippi Thunder Speedway Fall Festival, Oct. 9-10.

ay Ihrke pulled the number one starting spot in the USRA Modified 30-lapper. Angst started outside pole followed by Andy Bohnstengel and Hank Rollinger Jr.

Angst and Ihrke ran side by side for the lead to end lap one. Bohnstengel, Rollinger, and Adam Stockhausen fell in behind the leaders as Bob Timm sliced between Rollinger and Stockhausen into fourth place. Lance Hofer was on the move as he dove into fifth place within three laps.

Angst and Ihkre pulled away from the field as Bohnstengel and Timm set up their own fight for third. Angst finally took the point over Ihrke as they all fell into line. Angst led at the half-way mark of the caution-free segment followed by Ihrke, Hofer, Bohnstengel, and Stockhausen.

Angst rolled a one, so no invert was done for segment two. The 10-minute pit stop began as cars were worked on, adjusted, and fueled up. This intermission proved to be a great opportunity for a snack for USRA Modified driver Paul Hamernik when a crew member provided a hot dog to him while the rest of the crew fueled the car up. Segment two shaped up as the track began to take on rubber which provided a much desired change to the surface for some.

Angst led Ihrke, but Hofer moved smoothly into second ahead of Ihrke while Josh Mattick found his way up to fourth place. As the final laps closed in, Angst reeled himself into the finish line for the big win. Hofer finished a fantastic second followed by Ihrke, Mattick, and Bohnstengel.

The season finale is just a month away. Join us for great racing October 9-10 at Mississippi Thunder for the first annual Fall Festival for two complete shows. Watch the website for details as the event approaches at
