PLEASANTON, Texas (April 27, 2024) – Logan Dinsmore made back-to-back visits to victory lane when the South Texas IMCA Modified Series returned to I-37 Speedway on Saturday night.

Twenty Friesen Performance IMCA Modifieds lined up for the four-wide salute before taking the green. Raymond McSpadden led the pack into turn one, but Cody Tidwell got a run up top to snag the lead pursued by Chris Morris, McSpadden, Rick Green and John Hortch.

Yellows waved on laps three and four and on the second restart, Dinsmore rocketed to the high side, sailing past Morris and Tidwell for the lead.

The top three would break away while Jared Maupin worked his way to fourth.

Dinsmore was inching away at the crossed flags and had half a straightaway on his closest competition before another yellow, on lap 16.

With a clean track ahead, Dinsmore had to hold off Morris and Maupin as the top three got away while Green, Carroll and McSpadden were three wide for fourth.

Dinsmore inched out to a couple car lengths to grab his second STIMS win in a row.

“Seems like we’re on a roll with two in a row, I guess,” commented Dinsmore, also the April 13 winner at Cotton Bowl Speedway. “I’m just getting lucky, maybe, I don’t know. I was running through the middle there and it did not feel good at all. I fell back a bit and then restarted on the top. It felt really good up there and I didn’t want to leave it. Even in lapped traffic I didn’t want to leave it.”

Morris was runner-up and Maupin took third.
