Dunn Bests USRA American Racer Modified Series at Devil’s Bowl Speedway


MESQUITE, Texas (June 18) A multi-time USRA Modified track champion at the Devil’s Bowl Speedway, Clyde Dunn Jr. paired his hometown advantage with nearly two decades of experience to top Saturday’s main event for the USRA American Racer Modified Series presented by Day Motor Sports.

The 38-year old from Rockwall, Texas, snagged the lead from multi-time USRA series champ Triston Dycus halfway through the 25-lapper and led the rest of the way to collect the $2,000 top prize.

Speaking of hometown advantage, Chris Henigan roared from tenth on the starting grid to claim the runner-up spot at the checkered flag. Through five events, Henigan has three wins including two at his hometown Ark-La-Tex Speedway to go with a third-place finish and now, a second-place effort.

But despite leading the ARMS points battle, Henigan’s lead is vulnerable as Joe Duvall continued his string of to-five finishes with a third-place results on Saturday.

He’s just 39 points behind Henigan entering a month-long hiatus for the series while Dycus, who held on to finish fourth, is just an additional 37 makers back.

Coming from the 11th starting spot, Jason Sartain was the fifth driver to cross the finish line. Wendall Bolden, Troy Taylor, Jack Sartain, Wayne Melton and Kenny Gaddis, who started 23rd, completed the top 10.

Gaddis is fifth in the series standings with 379 points, followed by Manuel Williams II (361), Tommy Cannon (348), Sean Gaddis (341), Chris Dawson (327), Sartain (298) and Jeremy LaCoe (284).

At season’s end, the ARMS points champion will pocket at least $4,000.

American Racer doled out a $100 cash award to Dycus, LaCoe and A.J. Vasquez in a random draw during the driver’s meeting for competitors who pre-entered for Saturday’s show.

Drivers, don’t forget that those who pre-enter for this and any ARMS race in 2022 save on the cost of the entry fee and pre-entries are eligible for one of three $100 cash drawings at the pit meeting those nights. Get entered now at myracepass.com.

Of special note, those in attendance—drivers, crew members, officials, sponsors and fans—donated funds of $6,335 in total for Natalie Buckmeyer.
