A capacity crowd was on hand to welcome the United States Modifieds Touring Series for the inaugural Honeycutt Sand & Gravel Modified Nationals at RPM Speedway Friday night. There were over fifty Modifieds in the pits that competed for the twenty-six starting positions in the Allgayer Inc. A-Main. "Rocket" Rodney Sanders, No. 20, fresh off a feature win at the Texas World Dirt Track Championships at Texas Motor Speedway a few weeks ago, drew the pole position. Rodney quickly jumped out to the lead in the 40-lap feature. There were a number of cautions and several cars managed to get close, but Rodney held them off to take the feature win. Rodney was one happy racer. He was the only one in the top eight to take the Big Dog Buy-in. For $100 the feature win would pay an extra $2,000 for a total of $4,000. Coming in a hard fought second, was Watts, Okla., Jason Hughes, No. 12, Tyler Townsend, No. 12t, was third, Kevin Sustaire, No. 71k, was fourth and current points leader Ryan Gustin, No. 19r, was fifth.
The USMTS Modifieds travel to Ark-La-Tex Speedway in Vivian, La., Saturday.
