Jesse Sobbing won the USRA Modified main event.

With full bleachers and a pit full of the best drivers in the country, the I-35 Speedway kicked off the 2017 racing season in style Saturday.

The track honored our military and Motor Racing Outreach member Robbie Skipper delivered the invocation with Jamie King singing our National Anthem and setting the stage for a great night.

The Out-Pace USRA B-Mods put on a show of epic proportions for all fans in attendance. Ed Noll set the pace, taking the lead until looping it in turn four to bring out the first yellow. Cody Brill charged to the front on the restart and led every lap from there and claim the win.

It was not easy for Brill as Steve Clancy challenged but had to settle for second while Randy Ainsworth was the big mover and shaker of the race using the high line to perfection to finish third. Eddie Schwope Jr. came home fourth with Mike Tanner rounding out the top five.

The Holley USRA Stock Cars were low in number but high in quality. Jay Barnes took the early lead until Hall-of-Famer Dean Wray worked his way to the lead. Wray was not challenged and picked up the victory. Sam Scott placed second and third belonged to Mark Ronnebaum with Ron Hill fourth. Jon Boller Jr. rounded out the top five.

A locked and loaded USRA Modified field took the track and did not disappoint with great side by side racing. Jesse Sobbing charged out front with Darren Shaw close behind as the feature got underway. Sobbing led every lap followed by a super burnout in McCarthy Auto Group Winners Circle.

Shaw ended the night second with defending track champion Dennis Elliott working his way to third. Fourth place saw Wisconsin native Paul Niznik work his way through the pack to place fourth with Austin Johnson impressing with a fifth place finish.

The I-35 Speedway would like to thank all the drivers and fans for a great night of racing action and family fun, and also welcomes Jacob Blair back to the announcers booth. See everyone next week at the I-35 Speedway where there is always more “Dirt Trackin' at its Best.”
