WHITE CITY, Ore. (June 16) – Making a nice comeback from an early race crash, Zach Fettinger scored the 25-lap IMCA Modified main event victory Saturday night at Southern Oregon Speed­way.
Fettinger held off C.J. Putnam down the stretch for what would be his first win of the season de­spite restarting at the back of the field following the lap eight fracas.
The frontrunners had come up on a slower car and while Andy Freeman got by, Mark Wauge and Fettinger both got caught up. Wauge suffered enough damage to end his race while Fettinger made a pit stop and was able to rejoin the back of the pack for the restart.
Fettinger quickly found the fastest line and charged to the lead, and eventual win ahead of Put­nam and Albert Gill.
Braxton Possinger was flawless in leading start to finish of the 20-lap feature for Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods.
