Joe Duvall celebrates after winning the USRA Modified feature on Saturday, June 15, at the Lucas Oil Speedway in Wheatland, Mo.

Joe Duvall of Claremore, Okla., roared from his 14th-starting position and into the lead before the mid-point en route to the USRA Modified feature win Saturday night at the Lucas Oil Speedway during Mid-Season Championships presented by the Bolivar Herald-Free Press.

Duvall, a frequent United States Modified Touring Series competitor, was dominant in finishing ahead of second-place Robbie Reed with Paden Phillips third and Jason Pursley fourth.

"The last month has just been brutal," Duvall said, noting he cut short a USMTS weekend after two tough nights in Wisconsin. He said he wanted to find a place to race to race "to just get our head back on straight on the way home. What better place to come than Wheatland, Missouri?"


Joe Duvall won the USRA Modified feature.

Phillips' run was good enough to vault him past Jon Sheets for the mid-season championship. The points race was thrown into a jumble on lap two when Sheets—who led by six points at the start of the night—spun and hit the wall in turn three. He was unable to continue.

"We've been working real hard this year," said Phillips, of Chanute, Kan. "We're needing to break through and get a win. I hated to see Sheets get into the wall. We were having a good race."

Reed started fourth and passed pole-starting Pursley for the lead on lap 2. Meanwhile, Duvall scooted from 14th and into third by lap 5 as the race's third caution came out.

Duvall slid past Reed in turn 4 to finish lap 9 to take the lead and pulled away from there.

Mid-season Out-Pace USRA B-Mod track champion Kris Jackson continued his roll, picking up his third straight feature win at Lucas Oil Speedway. He led all 20 laps and finished 0.608-second ahead of runner-up Taylor Moore.

It also was his third feature win of the week. Jackson won in Iowa on Wednesday and at Midway Speedway in his hometown of Lebanon on Friday.

Jackson had nearly a two-second lead wiped out when the race's lone caution waved with four laps to go. He handled the restart without any issues and opened a comfortable lead when another yellow, as he was taking the white flag, forced him to endure one more restart.

"Before that (caution) I looked up at the jumbo tron and saw that (Moore) was within a tenth (of a second) of me. I thought I was setting a pretty good pace," Jackson said. "I realized that it wasn't quite comfortable enough."

No problem. The reigning Out-Pace USRA B-Mod National Champion locked down the win and celebrated that, plus the mid-season points title. Moore finished ahead of third-place J.C. Morton, who rallied from 11th, and Eric Turner was fourth.


Kris Jackson won the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod feature.

Each mid-season champion received a $500 bonus. Victory Lane Track Action Race Review contributed $1,000 toward the bonus and Lucas Oil Speedway management matched the contribution with another $1,000. The total of $2,000 was split among the points leaders in the four divisions.

Racing resumes on Saturday, June 29, as the National Wild Turkey Federation along with OnMedia/DISH/DirecTV presents the Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series featuring Out-Pace USRA B-Mods and USRA Modifieds, which will be the featured class with a 25-lap, $1,000-to-win main event.
