Kansas City, KS – August 30, 2013 – Darron Fuqua bested the field during the 18th Annual Tom Karrick Modified Memorial feature tonight, taking home a cool $2000 for his 30-lap effort. Starting seventh, Fuqua used the cushion to hook that right rear and propelled himself forward quickly. Early race leader, Kerry Davis, had command for the first four laps and gave chase once Fuqua got around him until mechanical issues forced him to drop out early. Nic Bidinger charged hard at the end and even with a lap-20 caution wasn’t able to find the speed to get by Fuqua and finished second. Terry Schultz raced from 14th to finish third, edging out Mark Schafman. Austin Siebert rounded out the top five.

Once the USRA B-Modified drivers got the first five cautions out of their system they ran a great race. Chad Clancy started up front and dominated the 15-lap event. The most excitement came from watching Gene Claxton and Mike Higley. Claxton started 23th and Higley 25th and the two ended up finishing second and third, respectively. Randal Schiffelbein and Jake Richards finished fourth and fifth.

Bill Ruisinger enjoyed starting on the pole for the Grand National feature, taking command for the first third of the 15-lap event. Point leader, Gary Donaldson, took advantage of Ruisinger’s car fading and took the lead from him. Once up front he would be pressured by Marshall Jewett but would not give up the lead. Jewett would finish second with Steve Dibben on his bumper. Don Marrs and Jim Baker rounded out the top-five.

The Factory Stocks had the first feature of the night and ran it caution-free. It looked like Marshall Jewett would take home a third trophy of the year but Brett Heeter once again proved the dominate car. It took Heeter 13 of 15 laps to take the lead and once there was untouchable. Jewett finished second ahead of Joe Smith, Jr, Sean Foster and Vic Tranckino 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.
