Harris earns Bud Wilson Memorial checkered flag

A night that began with the remembrance of the events of 9/11 and the late 2017 Out-Pace USRA B-Modified track champion at I-35 Speedway, Bud Wilson, ended with a driver running a Bud Wilson style race to claim the race win.

Twenty-three B-Mods took to I-35 Speedway for a 22-lap feature, and Daniel Harris led every one (the No. 22 is the number Wilson won the championship with). Harris navigated seven cautions and put together perfect restart after perfect restart, holding off challenges from Lonnie Hibner, Nic Hanes and Doug Keller to pick up his third win at I-35 this season.

Harris kept cool as the constant glow of yellow filled the track, never missing his marks as he ran the cushion most of the race. Doug Keller drove to a second place finish. Mike Striegel ran top five all race on his way to a third place finish. Chase Galvan patiently drove to fourth and Jeremy Pittsenbarger rounded out the top five.

The USRA Modifieds saw much of the same, as cautions slowed this race seven times. Similar to Harris, Dennis Elliott led every lap and handled every restart smoothly on his way to his eighth win of the year.

Mike Striegel showed his nose to Elliott several times, but could not make the attempts stick and settled for a second place finish. Nathan Vaughn ran the cushion to a third place finish. Derrick Hicks and Robbie Reed made up the rest of the top five.

The Holley USRA Stock Cars brought a fast field to the track with five different drivers challenging for the win. This race slowed several times due to yellows, keeping challengers close to race leader Gerald Wahwahsuck. Early in the race, Wahwahsuck held off Jeff Dixon, before Dixon slowed on a restart and did not finish. Next to challenge Wahwahsuck was the young Austin O’Neal, who wore out the back bumper of Wahwahsuck.

Kevin Anderson worked his way through the field using the low line, one of the only cars to show speed next to the infield tires. Anderson began to challenge for the lead when a faint trail of smoke became visible behind Wahwahsuck. With two to go, the engine popped as Wahwahsuck became a moving fireball. The fire quickly put itself out and Wahwahsuck retired from the race.

On the restart, O’Neal made a final attempt at Anderson, clearing him with a slider, before Anderson completed the cross-over for the eventual win. The battle allowed Billie Hoover to sneak in for second. O’Neal finished third, Cletus Murray fourth and Blake Peeler fifth.
