Ward leads wire to wire at Crystal opener

CRYSTAL, Mich. (April 19) – Ionia’s A.J. Ward roasted the opening night competition with a wire to wire win in the Port City Racecars IMCA Modified class Saturday at Crystal Motor Speedway. Ward jumped to the lead and just walked away without challenge from those behind him, Rusty Ziegler, Myron DeYoung, Vern Buskirk and Jimmy Hale Jr. Two “B” mains were required to fill the feature field. Myron DeYoung took the first with Cory Rusink, Brenton DeYoung and Chris Dietrich transferring with him. The second “B” gave a lift up to the feature for Brady Hollenbeck, Kenny Playter, Austin Wonch and Tyson Minier. Minier was last year’s Flinn Stock champion and his first-ever appearance in the Modified feature proves he has a great future at CMS.
