circuits before surrendering the point to eighth-starter Jason
Rogers. Rogers was busy fending off Angel Munoz
over the ensuing circuits wile Pfeifer making his into the top
five by the midway point.
Working the top side of the track, Pfeifer made his way to
second by the 17th round and then began pressuring
Rogers for the lead. After battling

23rd lap and paced the final three circuits to secure
After leading more than half the race, Rogers settled for second
with Munoz filling out the podium in third.
Mike Petersilie crossed the stripe fourth after starting tenth
with Will Bauer
rounding out the top five.
In the Precise Racing Products DCRP Sprint Cars, defending track
champion Steven Richardson led all but the first round in the
20-lapper to become the third different winner of the season in
as many rounds.
Starting from the front row outside, the Liberal racer chased
opening night winner Steven Richardson for the first lap before
racing by on the top side of the track.
Richardson rode the rim flawlessly the rest of the way to secure
the win aboard the Poor Boy Kustomz No. 0 Sprint Car.

midway point but was unable to fully eliminate the gap.
Cranston settled for second with Ty Williams in third.
Kris Moore cracked the top five on the eighth round and
took command of fourth for keeps on the 11th lap.
Koby Walters outlasted Alexander Ort to round out the top

Modified ranks by making a late move into the lead and then
holding off a charging Daniel Gottschalk and Clay Sellard to top

position, Brandon Conkwright paced the initial 14 rounds from
the pole position.
Money needed just seven laps to climb to third and then took
second away from Jake Schroeder on the tenth.

round, Money was there to cash in on the opportunity by racing
into the lead.

on Money’s rear bumper. Sellard slipped
around Conkwright while Gottschalk worked the high side to race
past both of them only to fall just short of Money at the line.

career IMCA Sport Modified feature win, gunning into the lead on
the opening lap and leading all 20 rounds in convincing fashion.
While Burger streaked away from the pack, defending track
champion Jeff Kaup made his way past Brian May for second on the
eighth lap. By that time though, Burger had
opened up nearly straightaway worth of real estate between
himself and Kaup.
Kaup closed to within eight car length but ran out of laps to
chase down the fleet Burger. Kaup and May
rounded out the podium in second and third, respectively, with
Dakota Sproul in fourth after wining the first two rounds of
