(Warrensburg, MO) Sunshine and warmer weather finally reached into the weekend for race fans and drivers on Cliff Harris Warrensburg Ford Race night at CMS. Week three of the 2017 race season produced some thrilling action with 115 cars on hand.

Kevin Blackburn of Fulton claimed the USRA Modified feature for his first victory the season. In the B-Mod feature, Jake Richards from Kansas City seized his second win of the year against another large field of drivers. Clayton Campbell of Otterville grabbed his second feature victory in the Street Stocks. Midwest Mod-Lites saw Travis Alexander of Tonganoxie, Kansas in victory lane for his first-ever feature win and Dave Doelz from Warsaw also celebrated his first-ever feature victory in the Pure Stocks. Shad Badder of Oak Grove grabbed his first-ever United Late Model Association (ULMA) feature win during their first CMS appearance of the year.

Pure Stocks opened the heat racing action with 9 drivers checked in for competition. Scott Martin of Warrensburg grabbed the heat-race victory. The early part of the feature had several cautions periods. Former champion Rodger Detherage retired early from the event allowing David Doelz to inherit the lead and eventually capturing his first-ever feature win. Larry Norris was second ahead of Joey Harper with his best-ever feature finish in third. First-time driver Jeff Hardy was fourth with Detherage finishing fifth.

B-Mod drivers had another chance to hone their driving skills against a large field with 31 drivers on hand. During the four qualifying heat races, Jake Richards, Dean Wille, Doug Wetzel, and Bob Nakoneczny grabbed the wins, for Nakoneczny, it was his first-ever win. In the B-main, Monty Mitchell, Johnathon Knotts, Colten Stevens, Eddie Bray, Jr., Jack Cunningham, and Dean Bachner transferred to the A-main.

The feature began with Wille in command after a lap-three incident with Ryan Edde and Eddie Bray Jr. on the front stretch resulted in a red-flag as Edde’s car rolled on its hood with Bray’s car on top. Both drivers were thankfully okay in the incident but their cars were heavily damaged. When racing resumed, Richards made a late-race pass on the low side to grab the lead. In the end, Richards went on to record his second win of the season ahead of Dean Wille, Steve Clancy, Mike Striegel, and Rex Harris.

The visiting ULMA Late Models had 11 drivers on hand for competition. In the heats, Aaron Marrant and Jon Binning took the wins. In the feature event, Marrant led early with Binning and Shad Badder in hot pursuit. After several laps, Badder took advantage in turn two down low to grab the lead and never looked back. Marrant and Binning settled for second and third with Aaron Poe, Dylan Hoover and Layne Ehlert rounding out the top five.

The Midwest Mod-Lites were entertaining and lightning fast on the track as Jeff Raffurty, David Raffurty and Travis Alexander charged to the checkers for their respective heat wins. In the feature event, 19 drivers completed the first 18 laps without any caution flags but then the racing was halted on multiple occasions late in the event, one for a red-flag incident for Kansas driver Zane Hansen, who walked away from a series of roll-overs in between turns one and two. Travis Alexander shot out into the lead and held off Cody Miller after the late-race cautions and drove to his first-ever feature win. Miller pressured for the lead several times and eventually finished second with Dillon Raffurty, Jeff Raffurty and Ryan Ayers of Salina, Kansas rounding out the top five at the finish.

In the Street Stock division, drivers once again set their sights on the winner’s circle as 17 drivers competed throughout the night. The first heat saw Brett Wood take the win with James McMillin driving to victory in the second prelim event. Wood and McMillin led the field to green for the 15-lap main event with Clayton Campbell close behind. Campbell eventually found a way around Wood on the low side to grab the lead and eventually scored his second win of the season. Wood challenged late but settled for second with David Hendrix, Jay Prevete, and Aaron Poe rounding out the top five.

USRA “Mighty” Modifieds were once again on hand in full force as 27 drivers signed in for competition. Danny Barker, Tim Karrick, Dalton Kirk, and Terry Schultz claimed the heat-race wins. In the B-main, Zach Sanders, David Wood, Nathan Vaughn, Danny Scrogham, Dwight Niehoff, and James Dean Eaton transferred to the A-main. The feature was another barn burner with Blackburn leading the entire distance as drivers jockeyed for positions behind him. Tricky track conditions led to several anxious moments throughout the night including Lewis Jackson’s full-speed ride off the turn three area, where his car came to a halt just shy of going into the watering hole, Jackson was uninjured in the incident.

Terry Schultz pressured Blackburn for all 25-laps pulling close on several occasions as he was trying to pick up his second win of the year after scoring a victory the night before at Lakeside Speedway but in the end settled for the runner-up finish behind eventual winner Blackburn. Zach Sanders made a rare CMS and finally turned his bad luck at the track around with an outstanding run to finish third after transferring from the B-main! Jim Moody began the night in search of his third-straight victory but settled for a fourth-place run followed by Dalton Kirk who ran consistently throughout the night and came home in fifth, his best finish of the year.
