Out-Pace USRA B-Mod national points leader Kris Jackson of Lebanon pulled off a three-wide pass for the lead and found himself back in the winner circle Friday night at the Lebanon Midway Speedway in capturing his tenth victory at the 1/3-mile dirt oval and paced himself back into the track points lead by four points over Sam Petty.

Jackson, who finished third in the Tuesday night feature at Midway, was glad to get back into victory lane.

Jackson shot from his sixth starting spot and dove into a three-car battle with leader Kelly Hicks and Tyler Knudtson out of turn 4 on the second lap as Petty shot from his eighth starting spot to work the tight race traffic.

Jackson had his Rage Chassis/Ruble Engines/RHRBrew.com No. 65 dialed in as he had been finding the weight of the money this week. After winning last Saturday night at Springfield, Jackson found bad luck hit Tuesday at Midway while leading his heat race as a back bar broke at the weld area. they went to the Chris Nichols shop just a small walk from Midway, fixed the issue and returned just before feature time whee he finished thirdf, then recovered from a spin Thursday night at Wheatland to finish ninth.

Petty went into the night holding a one-point lead and played a patient game in his Shaw/Macs Performance/John West Logging No. 9 to move through traffic, but could never catch the flying Jackson. Knudtson rounded out the top three, holding back Brian Myers as early leader Hicks fell back to fifth.

Heat race wins went to Dillion McCowan and Jackson.
