AUBURN, Mich. (July 12) – Friday night was the last opportunity for Allstar Performance IMCA Modified drivers to dial in their rides before the big Greased Pig 9.0 special at Tri-City Motor Speedway on July 19.  

Defending champion Nate Jones has had a tough first half of the season.  However, he may have figured out his issues as it took him only five laps to go from ninth place to take the lead from Will Small.

Once Jones got to the front, he was long gone from the rest of the field taking the win easily over point leader Matt Szecsodi, Brenten DeYoung, “B” feature winner Kody Johnson and Mitchell Hunt.
