DODGE CITY, Kan. (June 13) – Scott Green battled into the lead on the third round and held off a closing Austin Allen in the closing stages of Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified 20-lapper for his first Dodge City Raceway Park win of the year Saturday night
Green worked past Nick Link for the point and after a rash of cautions in the opening five circuits was able to slip away from the field as the battle waged behind him.
With Randy Wilson holding second, Allen and Joe Cleveland traded the third spot numerous times before Allen finally took command of the position on the 15th lap. Allen disposed of Wilson one lap later and quickly began reeling in the leader.
Allen closed to Green’s decklid with two laps to go but Green was flawless over the final pair of circuits to beat Allen to the stripe by a pair of car lengths. Ryan Heger worked up to third in the closing laps with Wilson and William Nusser rounding out the top five.
Austin Walker took full advantage of the pole starting position in the IMCA SportMod feature, leading all the way in the non-stop affair and taking the win by mere feet over a rallying Mike Roach.
Michael Pepper continued his mastery of the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car division by snaring his fourth win of the year.
The 12-lap IMCA Hobby Stock feature came down to the final round, with Matt O’Hair slipping under Cody Davis entering the final pair of corners and taking his second win of the year.
