AUBURN, Mich. (May 17) – Friday night belonged to Mitchell Hunt. 

Hunt won the Allstar Performance IMCA Modified main event at Tri-City Motor Speedway on a night that saw nearly 30 entries in the division. 

Outside polesitter Garrett Bennett led the opening laps before Chris Cohoon took over the top spot. But Hunt marched his way to the front and muscled away the lead from Cohoon on lap eight and never looked back. 

For Hunt, it was his first-ever Tri-City feature win. Opening night winner Matt Szecsodi, A.J. Ward, Jacob Flickinger and Brenten DeYoung secured top five finishes.
