Andy Bryant won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

The Rick Beebe Heating & Air Smokin’ Hot Summer Series presented by Prime Racing Products roared past the halfway point on an unseasonably cool night Saturday at the I-35 Speedway.

Robbie Reed and Nic Bidinger took USRA Modified heat race wins and carried that momentum into the feature. Reed took the lead early in the feature and set a rapid pace while Dennis Elliott, Bidinger, Tyler Hibner and Mark Dotson swapped positions almost every lap behind him.

A late-race caution allowed the gap behind Reed to close. On the restart, Bidinger ripped the cushion and snuck to the outside of Reed. Bidinger took the lead off turn 4 but the yellow flew before they crossed the line, relegating him back to third.

Now seeing Bidinger’s line, Reed handled the next restart and hung onto the lead and eventual race win.

Bidinger finished second with Dotson third, Elliott fourth and Hibner fifth.

The Out-Pace USRA B-Mods had a mix of fast drivers up front and fast drivers stuck deep in the field. Throw in a quickly-changing track and the field could see a lot of movement in running order.

Andy Bryant reacted first to the changing track and drove to the bottom. That allowed him to take the lead and make a trip to McCarthy Auto Group Winner’s Circle.

Dustin Crist followed Bryant on the bottom and drove to a second-place finish. Patrick Royalty drove from ninth to finish third. Heat race winner Luke Nieman finished fourth and Brad Smith drove from 17th to finish fifth.

Brett Heeter and Kevin Anderson have developed a friendly rivalry during the last few weeks in Holley USRA Stock Car action. This week, Heeter won the battle and picked up the checkered flag.

Anderson fought on the bottom but settled for second. Donovan Nunnikhoven finished third, Jaylen Wettengel fourth and Cletus Murray fifth.

The Holley USRA Stock Cars also had a make-up feature from the June 30 postponement. Nunnikhoven cruised to the checkered flag and picked up his second win at I-35 Speedway this season.

Aaron Sauter finished second, Gene Stigall third, Cletus Murray fourth and Michael Knight fifth
