On a night that looked to be all about The USRA Modifed points leader Darron Fuqua, it ended up being a new face in victory lane. Chris Spieker found out that even with a fast hot rod - you still need a little luck sometimes. Fuqua paced the modified field and at times led by a full straight away when out of turn #4 he quickly found his way into the infield with a motor that was overheating - thus giving the lead and his 1st feature win of 2013 at Lakeside Speedway to the Massena, Iowa native. Terry Schultz, Tim Karrick, Kerry Davis and Justin Johnson rounded out your top 5. .
In the Grand National division it was Don Marr's finding victory lane for the first time this year. Marr's used the top line of the racetrack to power his way to the front - and into the McCarthy Auto group winners circle. Marshall Jewett would finish 2nd with 3rd going to Gary Donaldson.
The always wild USRA B Mods lived up to its reputation as action all over the racetrack kept the fans on the edge of their seat's while Edwardsville Kansas driver Jake Richards picked up his 2nd feature win of the year. Richards started outside of row #1 and used that to his advantage as he was able to use the top line of the track all night to lead all 15 laps. Gene Claxon, Aaron Marrant Chad Clancy and Nick Newton rounded out your top 5.
The best race of the night came in the Factory Stock division - as Marshall Jewett found himself high fiving his pit crew in Victory lane but not after a challenge from Shaun Foster, Vic Tranckino, Brett Heeter and John O'Neal Jr.
