FRANCIS CREEK, Wis. (June 11) – Shawn Kilgore took R.M. Van Pay to slide job city in the $1,000 to win Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified feature, the second installment of 141 Speedway’s Red, White and Blue series.

Jay Matthias led the opening lap from the pole.  Mike Mashl charged to the outside and grabbed the lead on the second circuit, then moved down on the track, which allowed Van Pay and Kilgore to make it to the leader’s back bumper.

Van Pay stayed high on the track with Kilgore and they garnered the top two spots on lap 13.  Van Pay stayed in command until the sole caution flew with five laps remaining.  Kilgore worked his racer down low with Van Pay working the top shelf.

With two laps remaining, Kilgore performed the perfect slide job off turn two and snatched the lead.  Kilgore picked up the $1,000 payday in front of Van Pay. Mashl ran to third with Matthias and Luke Lemmens rounding out the top five.

Johnny Whitman charged from behind Kilgore and took home the checkered flag in the night’s second Modified feature by outrunning him on the final lap.

One hundred and forty-five cars entered the pits to roam around the 1/3-mile. Feature winners also included Kyle Frederick in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, Vince Engebregtsen in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods and Shaun Bangart in the Mach-1 Sport Compacts.
