BETHANY, Mo. (June 1) – Josh Munsen was nearly perfect Saturday night on his way to his first Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod victory of the season at Bethany Speedway.

Jason Nelson used a front row starting position to take the early lead, only to see Munsen power by on the low line.

Munsen held off the challenges of heat race winners Coleman Browning and Chris Wright as the race progressed. Colton Nelson made his presence felt racing through the pack to go after Mun­sen and finish a very close second. Browning was third.
