The United States Modified Touring Series made a brief stop Tuesday night at the Southern Oklahoma Speedway on there way to Ark-La-Tex Speedway for the 9th Annual Winter Nationals. A good field of thirty-six Modifieds were in the house to compete for the twenty-four starting positions in the Casey's General Stores 30-lap $3,000 to win A-main. The USMTS 2015 National Champion Jason Hughes, No. 12, started on the front row along side Dereck Ramirez, No. 4r. It took four laps, but Jason powered his way past Ramirez to take the lead. With less than five laps to go, Jason got into some lap traffic and was past by Rodney Sanders, No. 20. Jason managed to get back around Sanders and hold him off for the exciting win by 0.054 of a second. Sanders settled for second, Mickey Lassiter, No. 34, was third, Tyler Wolff, No. 4w, was fourth, Chadd Howell, No. 49, was fifth. Kyle Beard, No. 86, Derek Ramirez, No. 4r, Randy Timms, No. 5t, Joe Duvall, No. 91, and Lance Town, No. 21t, rounded out the top ten.
