Heart O' Texas Speedway (Waco)
March 23 (Friday)
Heart O' Texas Speedway held it's third racing event of the season Friday night. Even though several inches of rain had fallen in the area this week, the track was in good shape except for the water in the infield in turns three and four. Luckily no racer ended up in this area.
In the IMCA Modified feature race, twenty-two cars started the 20-lap A-main. On the first lap, several cars were involved in a wreck that sent five cars to the pits. Starting from the middle of the field, Keith White, No. 1, and P.J. Egbert, No. 707, both worked their way to the front, with Egbert taking the lead briefly coming out of turn two, only to have White go hard into turn three and cut under Egbert to take the lead and the win. Coming in second was Ben Ketterman, No. 37, with P.J. Egbert settling for third.
