Fuqua, Jewett Powell, Heeter Back in Victory Lane at Lakeside

By: Bob Libbey

Kansas City, KS – August 16, 2013 – What have the last three USRA A-Modified feature winners all had in common? They all won the race on the last lap. Tonight it was Darron Fuqua who needed all 24 laps before charging to the lead. Current A-Mod point leader, Nic Bidinger, led from lap-one and showed his hand to be the dominant car but Fuqua never quit gaining momentum on him. Finally, hooking the right rear on the cushion out of four, Fuqua, was able to pass for the lead and win one lap later. After battling for position the entire race, Tim Karrick bested Terry Bruner for third. Mark Schafman rounded out the top five.


After several weeks of bad luck, Marshall Jewett, finally had the Grand National feature go his way. He collected his fifth trophy of the season by edging out current point leader, Gary Donaldson. Austin Johnson challenged for second a time or two but would end up third, ahead of Steve Dibben. Donnie Brown rounded out the top-five.


Tim Powell entered the night in a borrowed ride, and a part time one at that, but he would leave with the USRA B-Modified trophy: His first since 2005. Powell needed half the race to motivate forward and pass early race leader Mike Taylor. Once there he had Jake Richards and Brad Smith to contend with. Basically, he couldn’t bobble at all or he would give the race away. Richards, who had earlier in the evening won the B-Main to advance to the A, started 21st and by lap-11 was up to third. One lap later he would get around Smith and was challenging for the lead. Hooking that right rear on the high-side berm, Richards nearly beat Powell to the checkered flag. Aaron Marrant and Chad Clancy rounded out the top-five.
The Factory Stock feature looked like it was going to provide a first time winner as 2012 RoY, Philip Holcomb, was out in front and looked tough to beat. And he was up until lap 11 of 15 when current point leader, Brett Heeter, took charge. Heeter started 13th and needed those first 11 laps to work his way through the field and would go on to post his fourth win in five weeks. Holcomb would fall back to 4th behind Jason Ryun and Marshall Jewett. Joe Smith Jr rounded out the top-five.


“Racing on the River’s Edge” continues every Friday night through October with the USRA A-Modifieds, Grand Nationals, USRA B-Modifieds and Factory Stocks.  Gates open at 5:00pm, hot laps at 6:45pm, and the first race gets under way at 7:30pm.  Adult ticket prices are $12.00, kids 7-12 $6.00, and children 6 and younger admitted FREE. Senior Citizen’s and military personnel with ID are admitted for $10.
