By: Bob Libbey – Kansas City, KS – Sunday, March 30, 2014 – Kelly Shryock made the most of his outside row-two starting position in the USRA A-Modified feature by taking the lead as the field came around to complete lap-one. Defending champion, Nic Bidinger, gave chase early and often but couldn’t muster the energy to successfully battle for the lead and would finish second. Like Bidinger on the bumper of Shryock, Mark Schafman tail-grabbed Bidinger for the duration of the 25-lap event, edging out Tim Karrick for third. Kerry Davis started the season racing from 13th to finish 5th.

Jake Richards, sporting a new number and new sponsors for his 2014 campaign, started out the season with a hard-fought win in the USRA B-Modified feature. The KC, KS driver had to run a clean, hard line to catch early leader Gene Claxton and it would take him 9 of the 15-laps before being able to successful pass him. Had there been another couple laps then Claxton would’ve felt the pressure from Luke Nieman, who raced from his 18th starting position to 3rd. Heat 3 winner, Chad Feather, an early contender in this race watched his car fade to a 4th place finish. After a post-race disqualification, Tim Powell, was awarded with the 5th place finish.

Brother-in-Laws, Brett Heeter and Justin Seifert picked up where they left off last year in the USRA Stock Car division. Heeter, defending champion and winner of 9 of the last 11 races in 2013, took advantage of the pole-position, shooting out to an early and commanding lead. That lasted until a lap-two caution bunched the field together, with Seifert now right on his back bumper. For the next 7 laps these two were side by side, seemingly perfectly matched. It was on lap 9 that Seifert, the 2012 champion, was finally able to get past the front bumper of Heeter and motor on for the win. A missed shift on a late-race restart caused Heeter end up with a 4th place finish. High-school junior and Heat-1 winner, Jeff Elder, ran a great race to finish second, edging out Jay Barnes. Winner of the 2012 and 2013 opening night feature, Joe Smith Jr, rounded out the top-five.

The Grand National feature was the Tim Shields show as he led every lap of the 15-lap feature. Defending champion, Gary Donaldson, gave chase but after using most of the race to work his way through the field could only muster a second place finish. Don Marrs and Donnie Brown put on a great show for the last three laps with Marrs edging him at the line for third. Pole sitter, Marshall Jewett, rounded out the top-five.

“Racing on the rivers edge” continues every Friday night through October with the USRA A-Modifieds, Grand Nationals, USRA B-Modifieds and USRA Stock Cars.
