Out-Pace USRA B-Mod national points leader Kris Jackson shot from his 12th starting spot and used a caution to overtake leader Tyler Knudtson in capturing the feature presented by S&S U-Pull-It Auto Parts Friday night at the Lebanon Midway Speedway.

Outside front row starter Knudtson shot to the opening lead over polesitter Donnie Jackson to set the quick pace early as Brian Myers followed closely behind. Jackson was working the traffic from his lst-row starting spot and had charged to fourth when the race's only caution flew on lap five for Rich Reynolds and Ryan Lewis.

On the restart, Knudtson was smooth but Jackson quickly moved to the runner-up spot and closed the gap. As the crossed flags waved halfway into the feature, Jackson shot to the high side and made the pass for the lead as Knudtson stayed close behind as the duo broke away from the pack.

Last year's Summit Racing Equipment Mid-American Region presented by MVT champion Mike Hailmann was making his first start of the season at Midway, moved into the top three and slowly began to close on the top duo as current track points leader Sam Petty charged from 11th to get into a fourth-place finish with young Dillion McCowan completing the top five.

The Lebanon Midway Speedway will host the inaugural S7S U-Pull-It Auto Parts Challenge on Friday, June 15, for the fast-moving Out-Pace USRA B-Mods with a $777-to-win feature event which will award track, regional and national points in the Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series. The runner-up will pocket $500 and it will pay $77 to start based on a 15-car field.

Open draw with passing points will determine the starting field with the top eight in passing points to redraw for starting spots in this scheduled 20-lap feature. Action will also feature street Stocks, Pure Stocks, Hornets and Midwest Modifieds in a regular points show. No car entry fee and pit passes will be $30.

Grandstand admission will be only $10 for adults with kids 8-12 just $5 and under 8 free. Gates open at 5 p.m. with hot laps at 7 and racing to start at 8 p.m. Draw cut-off is 7:25.
