Kris Jackson won both Out-Pace USRA B-Mod features.

As Lucas Oil Speedway roared back into action after a 28-day break, Kris Jackson made it a memorable evening with a doubleheader sweep.

Jackson won a pair of Out-Pace USRA B-Mod features on Saturday night, holding off Andy Bryant both in the headliner of the Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series program and a make-up feature from a rain-out on May 11.

A total of 107 cars, including 52 B-Mods, checked into the pits.

It was the first racing at the speedway since May 11. A major storm on May 20 forced cancellation of the 27th annual Show-Me 100.

"I have to thank all my guys and the Lucas Oil staff for working their butts off to get this place race ready again," Jackson said to enthusiastic cheers from the crowd after climbing out of the car.

After winning the make-up feature at the start of the night, the Lebanon driver set out to make it a sweep. He led the first 12 laps before relinquishing the lead to Bryant on the next circuit, but a caution flag turned the running order back to the previous lap.

"He just passed me. He was fast tonight," Jackson said of Bryant. "When the caution flew, I knew the top five hadn't gone underneath the flag stand and I thought, 'Man, I'm gonna get that spot back.'

"He was fast. He might have even had a faster car tonight, but we just got lucky."

Those two had dueled throughout the night and that continued on the restart as they two pulled away from the others, setting the state for a side-by-side battle over the final few laps.

Jackson weaved through lapped traffic to hold off Bryant for the second 1-2 finish of the night. Clint Johnson was third and J.C. Morton finished fourth.

The make-up feature kicked off the action and Jackson, starting from the pole, set a blazing pace in opening up a sizable lead until a lap-11 caution bunched the field. Jackson had nearly a straight-away command over Bryant and was working his way through lapped traffic.

Jackson reclaimed command after the restart and was three laps from the win when another caution wiped out his comfortable lead. It proven no problem for Jackson, who went on to claim the win with Bryant second and Tim Van Gotten in third.

Jackson's win was his first of the season at Lucas Oil Speedway after runner-up and third-place finishes. He had to wait only a couple of hours before winning a second.

"I don't know what my reputation is, but when I run second or third and people assume something is wrong," Jackson said in victory lane. "The competition is tough here. This is my first win of the season here, but we're pretty well on point."

Jackson added that his long-time engine builder, Jim Ruble, recently had a stroke and he asked everyone to keep Ruble in their thoughts and prayers.

"Racing without him gets harder and harder by the day," Jackson said.

Wolff becomes two-time USRA Modified winner: Third-starting Tyler Wolff took over the lead on lap four and paced the remainder of the 20-lap USRA Modified feature.

Wolff, of Fayetteville, Arkansas, made it two straight wins in his only two appearances at Lucas Oil Speedway this season. Nic Bidinger was second and Robbie Reed came home in third.

"I was just trying to hit my marks," Wolff said of the second half of the race, as he protected a comfortable lead. "We re-did the car this week, trying to kind of get it back to where we were at last year.

"What a better place to come than here. We've had good luck here."

Jason Pursley and season points leader Chase Domer were battling for third when they spun to bring out a caution on lap eight. Domer pulled off a couple of laps later and wound up in 19th and Pursley was 10th.


Tyler Wolff won the USRA Modified feature.
