BETHANY, Mo. (May 4) – Chris Wright found the right way around Bethany Speedway Saturday night, en route to the Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod feature win. 

The field of 21 was slowed by just a single caution. R.J. Dishong took the front early only to see Wright roar past.

Wright continued to lead as Coleman Browning challenged both high and low but could not find a way around. As the only yellow flag of the feature flew, Colton Nelson used the restart to his advantage, got by Browning for second and set his sights on the leader.

Wright, however, went on to pick up the win with Nelson second and Browning third. 

Chad Clancy cruised to the IMCA Modified victory and Steve Starmer got the best of tenacious Carson Masoner for top IMCA Sunoco Stock Car honors.
