By: Bob Libbey Kansas City, KS – Sunday, April 14, 2013 – Gene Claxton madethe most of a consistent line and Mother Nature to win the McCarthy Auto Opening Night USRA B-Mod feature.
Claxton, who started inside row three, needed only a handful of laps before taking the lead of the rain shortened event. Richard Layne and Jake Richards who battled most of the race side by side finished second and third, respectfully. Frank Littrell and Mike Higley rounded out the top five.

Kansas City, Kansas’s, Joe Smith, Jr, did exactly what he did opening night last
year….held off the entire field to register the first win of the season in the
Factory Stock division. This is not to say he didn’t have to earn it as Bret Heeter
and Tom Fogerty gave chase throughout the entire race.They would finish second and
third to Nate Barnes and Steve Johnson.

It was at this point that torrential rains hit Lakeside Speedway forcing an abrupt
end to the planned events. For this reason the Grand National feature and the USRA
A-Mod feature will be made up at a later date.

USRA A-Modifieds, Grand Nationals, USRA B-Modifieds and Factory Stocks. Gates open
at 5:00pm,hot laps at 6:45pm, and the first race gets under way at 7:30pm. Adult
