Rudolf is best in Bethany SportMod main

By Rick Staley BETHANY, Mo. (April 6) – Chase Rudolf has a Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod feature win to  show for his first-ever visit to Bethany Speedway. R.J. Dishong used a front row starting position to take the lead and appear to be set for the Satur­day win until a caution bunched the field back up. On the mid-race restart, Rudolf made a daring move on the high side of turn two to take the lead from Dishong.  Rudolf gradually pulled away from the pack and captured the win. Jeffrey Sears moved to the inside of the track and claimed second with Randy Smith Jr. a solid third. Defending champion Josh Munsen was fourth and Colton Nelson battled back from an early race mishap to place fifth. Mike Nichols set a blistering pace and cruised to his second IMCA Sunoco Stock Car Missouri  victory of the weekend. Mich Ross battled his way to a second place showing with Brad Derry impressing with a solid third place finish. A great race ensued for the fourth position [Read More]
