FOUNTAIN CITY, Wis. - Day two of the July Fourth weekend events at Mississippi Thunder Speedway saw Troy Langowski top the USRA Karl Performance Parts B-Mods while Bob Timm wheeled his way ahead of Josh Angst on the last lap to take the feature win in the USRA RHS Modifieds.

Jake Timm headed to a strong lead in the USRA Karl Performance Parts B-Mod feature. Brandon Hare and Troy Langowski ran second and third, but Langowski quickly soared into second. Ben Anderson climbed to third while Erik Kanz and Emory Fretheim raced for fifth place. A caution reset the field with Timm out front followed by Langowski and Anderson.

Langowski gained considerable ground on Timm, but Timm held his ground. Timm and Langowski raced side by side for the lead without touching for several laps while Anderson, Kanz and Troy Hovey hurtled behind them.

At lap 12, Langowski finally made the pass on Timm and shortly after caution two realigned the bunch. Langowski was able to get a big lead after the restart which left Timm to deal with Anderson for second place. Anderson managed to wrestle second from Timm, but Timm kept close tabs on the spot.

Langowski grabbed another win this season and was followed by Anderson, Timm, Fretheim and Kanz to round out the top five.

USRA RHS Modified feature action placed Nate Wasmund and Josh Angst in the front row of the 23-car field. Angst took the early lead, but a four-car pile-up between turns one and two set up a complete restart. Angst again took the lead as John Doelle shot to the inside to try for the lead. Bob Timm and Wasmund ran for third and fourth followed by Jay Ihrke and Lance Hofer.

Angst held off Doelle as Wasmund pulled away from Timm for a solid third place spot. Timm was left to fight off Ihrke. Doelle flew too high and into the marbles he went which set him back to fifth. Wasmund inherited second place behind Angst as Ihrke gained on Wasmund. Doelle regained some ground and pulled back to fourth ahead of Timm.

A caution and another restart later, Ihrke took advantage to get ahead of Wasmund, but Timm had the same idea as Ihrke and Timm raced side by side for second. Timm gained second place and pulled up to Angst as the two pulled away from Ihrke. Timm approached Angst as lap traffic created an obstacle for the pair.

With 19 laps of 25 down, Timm made a hard dive under Angst for the lead, but Angst pulled out of the corner still in the lead. A caution with five laps to go set up the finale. Angst led but soon a three-way battle for the lead developed between Angst, Timm, and Ihrke. Angst pulled to a half car length ahead of Timm, but Timm made the last lap pass to take the win from Angst.

Ihrke, Wasmund and Hofer finished out the top five.

Next up at the Mississippi Thunder Speedway on Friday, July 9, will be a regular night of racing. All regular classes will run which includes USRA RHS Modifieds and USRA Karl Performance Parts B-Mods, plus Street Stocks, Super Stocks, Mini Mods and 600 Mini Mods, as well as the return of the Hornets.
