The first feature up on the night was the 18 lap Shottenkirk Parts Express SportMod feature, with Brett Lowry and Carter VanDenBerg, the 2013 track champion, drawing the front row for the event. Lowry would take advantage of his front row start to jump out into the lead on lap 1 over VanDenBerg and Cory VanZante. Just after the completion of lap 1 the first and only caution of the event appeared, as Brandon Lennox, Bobby Six, and Jim Brown spun down the front stretch. On the restart Lowry moved back out front, with VanDenBerg working to hold back VanZante and Sean Wyett, who started 7th. While Lowry started to pull away the battle for second heated up, as VanDenBerg, VanZante, Wyett, Tony Dunker, who started 11th, Vance Wilson, who started 12th, and Ryan Fullenkamp, who started 26th, battled it out. Lowry would go on to lead all 18 laps to pick up the win and the $500 check to go with it. VanDenBerg won the battle for 2nd, VanZante was 3rd, Wyett was 4th, with Dunker rounding out the top 5.

With the small amount of rain we have received and the rain we are going to get tonight we decided to keep the cars off the track as long as possible. This way drivers can save a trip to the race track for Friday night and a motel room for the travelers. This weekend looks to have awesome weather with temps getting in the 70’s.
