WHITE CITY, Ore. (July 24) – Southern Oregon Speedway wrapped up the IMCA Pacific SportMod Showdown on Saturday for Dusty’s Transmission Night. The 40-lap, $2,500 to win feature had 41 Karl Kustoms Northern SportMods on hand.
When the green flag flew for the main event, Travis Peery, took control of the top spot to lead the opening lap. However, it was a short-lived reign as his son Ryan, winner from the previous night at White City, seized control by lap three. Travis rebounded to edge out Ryan on lap four.
Unfortunately, due to a caution, the pass was nullified, handing back the position to Ryan Peery. Six more stoppages were to be had for the rest of the race resulting in heavy lapped traffic being taken out of the picture but restarts even more critical. Ryan was briefly challenged from time to time, but not enough of a threat to his supremacy.
Ryan Peery scored his eighth triumph of the 2021 campaign and swept the Pacific Sport Mod Showdown. It is his second KMJ Performance Oregon State win on the year.
Matt Sanders beat out Travis Peery for second at the line on the final circuit. Andrew Peckham came home fourth over Fred Ryland.
