Szecsodi sizzles at Tri-City

Matt Szecsodi won the Friday night feature for IMCA Modifieds at Tri-City Motor Speedway.

AUBURN, Mich. (June 8) – Matt Szecsodi made his second visit of the season to victory lane at Tri-City Motor Speedway after taking over the lead of the Main Street Seed and Supply IMCA Modified feature on the 10th lap.

The start of the feature was dominated by Craig Vance as he drove the bottom line to pace the field.  At lap nine, it was Chad Wernette who fought his way from mid -pack to lead. His turn up front would only last a lap as Szecsodi took over the lead.

Nate Jones also fought his way through the field and got to second.  But without the help of any caution flags, Szecsodi’s lead was too big to overcome. Szecsodi parked in victory lane with his second feature win of 2018.  Jones grabbed his third runner-up finish of the season. Jones was followed by Wernette, Drasco, Ark., driver Heath Grizzle, and 19th starting Chris Cohoon.

Next Friday night, June 15 is the eighth anniversary of Tri-City’s first dirt race and features the Greased Pig 8.0 Comp Cams/Lane Automotive IMCA Modified Challenge presented by Allstar Performance.  This Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot qualifier will be a 41-lap race paying $2,018 to win and $150 to start the race.

It is also Kids’ night and Autograph night.  Kids under 15 accompanied by a parent receive free general admission. The autograph session begins at 7:15 p.m.
