MOHAVE VALLEY, Ariz. (May 1) – After several weeks off, Mohave Valley Raceway roared back to life on Saturday and Vinny Raucci Jr. raced to the IMCA Modified feature win.

Raucci wasted no time in getting out front on the initial start of the 25-lap main event.  He had to deal with several restarts and some pressure from Frank Russell Jr. 

Raucci mastered what proved to be the final restart and went on to win his first race at Mohave Valley this year.  He is the sixth different driver to win in seven races in the IMCA Modifieds in 2021 at MVR.    

Russell held onto second while Ryan Cotrell took third. Rick Durica and Ronnie Meyer Jr., completed the top five.
