By Lonnie Wheatley

DODGE CITY, Kan. (April 23) – William Nusser made a late move around race-long leader Trent Gray to capture his first career feature win in the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified 20-lapper Saturday at Dodge City Raceway Park.

Gray broke into the early lead from the pole starting position with Nusser and Clay Sellard turning up the pressure as the race progressed.

Nusser kept looking to Gray’s inside with Sellard nipping at the heels of both. Nusser finally squeezed under and raced into the lead exiting turn four on the 17th lap. Nusser held the point over the final rounds to take the victory ahead of Gray and Sellard with Jack Kirchoff and Cody Gearhart rounding out the top five.

Nick Link held down fifth with the white flag in sight only to fall deep into the field with a flat right front tire on the final lap.

Michael Pepper worked past Chris Oliver on the fourth round and never looked back in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car 15-lapper, ultimately taking the checkered flag ahead of opening night winner Tyler Tipton and Chris Oliver in third.

Breaking an extended streak of different winners in IMCA SportMod action, Jeff Kaup has a new streak in progress after winning his second 15-lapper in a row.

The IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock ranks offered up a third different winner in as many events with Reagan Sellard wiring the field in the 15-lapper for his first triumph since last year’s season finale.
