Heart O' Texas Speedway (Waco)
April 5 (Friday)
It was a battle of Champions at Heart O' Texas Speedway Friday night in Waco, Texas. Veteran Keith Green, No. 5, a multi champion started on the pole and quickly jumped out to the lead. Keith White, No. 1, last week's Modified feature winner and also a multi champion, started towards the back. On the first official lap, Keith White was involved in a wreck with two other cars in turn one and had to go to the rear of the field. Several cars brought out cautions during the race allowing Keith White to work his way towards the front. With three laps to go, Keith White moved up to second, but he was unable to catch Green and lost by half a car length at the finish line. Jarrod Jennings, No. 98j, was third, Ben Ketteman, No. 37, was fourth and Justin Radcliff, No. 11j, was fifth. There were sixteen IMCA Modifieds in the 20 lap feature.
