Jeff Cutshaw picked up his second USRA Modified feature victory of the season Saturday night.

The new season has produced familiar results in the Lucas Oil Speedway Pitts Homes USRA Modified division, with Saturday night the latest example of Jeff Cutshaw's dominance.

Bolivar's Cutshaw, the three-time reigning track champion, led all 25 laps to capture the $750-to-win highlight main event in a program presented by NMI/VMG Marketing Group & Wild Animal Safari.

Cutshaw won his second feature of 2017 in four tries to go with a third and a sixth. He already has opened a sizable points lead in pursuit of a fourth straight Lucas Oil Speedway championship.

Starting outside front row, Cutshaw got the jump on pole-sitter Jason Pursley and gradually drove off to a big lead. His margin was nearly a straightaway's size over Pursley when the race's lone caution flew on lap 16. That bunched the field, but Cutshaw was able to re-establish command after the restart.

Eric Turner got past fellow Hermitage resident Pursley over the final five laps and made a run at Cutshaw, but never could get close enough to threaten a pass.

"I didn't know where everybody was there for a little bit. I didn't know they were that close," Cutshaw said of Turner. "I thought I'd better step it up there a little bit. I could feel somebody back there, but I didn't know who it was for sure.

"I usually look up there at the scoreboard (above turn three) but I didn't do it tonight."

Pursley finished third for his second top-three of the season. Chase Domer wound up fourth with JC Morton in fifth.

Lebanon's Kris Jackson made it two-for-two this season at Lucas Oil Speedway, leading flag-to-flag in capturing the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

"I want to say Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers here tonight," said Jackson, joined in victory lane by wife, Krystle. "The car was pretty good tonight. We're on a pretty good hot streak right now."

Jackson started on the pole and jumped to a quick lead and withstood three cautions to regain command each time on the restarts.


Kris Jackson made it two-for-two this season in the Out-Pace USRA B-Mods.

Andy Bryant of Fort Scott, Kan., finished second and J.C. Morton, who recently moved from Springfield to Springdale, Ark., wound up third. Morton was doing double duty, driving to top-five finishes in both Modified divisions.

Shawn Strong started ninth and finished fourth with veteran Rex Merritt of Billings charging from 10th to fifth.
