Kansas City, KS – Lakeside Speedway hosted the Joe Berry Clash of the B Mods on Friday night and it provided all the excitement that fans could want and more.

A perfectly groomed race track and a beautiful night gave the racers the perfect setting to provide the perfect race.

Yancy Shepard and Steven Clancy would bring the field to the green flag to start off this $1,500 to win USRA B Mod Special.

Chad Lyle, a former multiple time champion at Lakeside Speedway in the Modified division, pulled out to the early lead in the feature. Lyle hugging the bottom of the track to perfection kept him in front of the mob of racers behind him. As this being a special 5 extra laps were added on making it a 20 lap feature.

Shepard would stay in the 2nd spot for a majority of the feature as he chased down Lyle. Behind Shepard there was a lot of action going on all over the speedway. The smooth, dryslick racetrack provided 3 grooves around the speedway that were being utilized by all the drivers.

Coming to lap 15 Shepard was in a position to make his move on the leader, Lyle.

On a normal feature it would have been a photo finish if that’s where the race ended, but tonight there were 5 more laps and in the final 5 laps Shepard shined the brightest.

Shepard would take the lead from Lyle and go on to win the $1,500 top prize for the Joe Berry Clash of the B Mods! It was Shepards 1st win of the year at Lakeside Speedway and his 1st time back behind the wheel after a long hiatus.

Brad Smith, the winner of the last 2 features at Lakeside Speedway, caught up to Lyle on the white flag lap and would beat him to the line for the runner-up spot, 3rd would go to Lyle, JC Morton finished in the 4th spot and Colton Stevens had a strong effort finishing in 5th on the night.

A total of 37 USRA B Mods checked in to try and cash in on the extra money being offered on Friday night!

Some new faces showed up to battle in the USRA Modified A Main event on Friday night.

Tyler Wolff, from Fayetville, AR, jumped out to the early lead in the main event. Mark Schafman, a multiple time feature winner in 2016, kept pace with Wolf at the front. Jesse Dennis, from Corning, IA, was also in the mix at the front of the pack.

On lap 6 the 3 drivers would go 3 wide on the track, but it was Wolf and Schafman heading to the front. Schafman used the high side to build up enough momentum to run passed Wolff. Schafman would become the new leader.

From there it was familiar territory for Schafman. Schafman worked the speedway to his liking and opened up a good sized lead. As he would work his way through lapped traffic he would find the checkered flag and win #3 on the season as the finish.

Wolf would hang on after a tough battle with Kerry Davis for the 2nd spot, Davis would settle for 3rd, 4th went to Dennis and Aaron Marrant rounded out the top 5 in 5th.

The ‘H’ Train is on a roll in the USRA Stock Car division.

Brett Heeter started inside of row number 4 in the feature and by lap number 3 he found himself at the top spot. Seven wins on the season and there is no sign of letting up for Heeter. At the front of the pack the only time the field would challenge Heeter was under the yellow flag laps. As soon as the green would drop Heeter would jump back out into the lead.

As the checkered flag dropped on the field it was Heeter picking up win #8 on the season.

Lucas Conely finished in the runner up spot, 3rd went to Trevor Hunt, 4th was Chad Walker and 5th went to Kevin Anderson.

Jason Ryun rebounded from his troubles last week in the Factory Stock Feature.

The win wouldn’t come as easy as one would think. Ryun battled with Jay Barnes, last week’s winner, and Marshall Jewett for a majority of the feature before getting out to the win. Ryun with the win continues to cement his lead in the points standings.

Barnes finished 3rd followed closely by Jewett, JR Billings finished in the 4th spot and Leroy Morrison took home a top 5 finishing in the 5th position.

In the Grand National division Tim Shields is starting to look like the driver he was a year ago.

In the past 3 races he has returned to dominating the division and in the past month he has now taken over the points lead from Nick Newton as the season heads into the final stretch.

Shields made his move last night at the halfway point. Shields, battling with Marshall Jewett, pulled along side Jewett heading into turn 3 and by the exit of turn 4 he was the new leader.

In front of the pack Shields would put a spread on the field and take another win on the season.

Don Marrs took home the runner up spot, Jewett finished in the 3rd spot, 4th went to Nick Newton and 5th was Donnie Brown.

The racing action continues next Friday night at Lakeside Speedway for Tompkins Industries Night at The Races, July 22nd.
