Dennis Elliott won the USRA Modified feature.

The night sky was filled with fireworks celebrating Independence Day, following what proved to be yet another night of thrilling racing at the I-35 Speedway.

A big field of Out-Pace USRA B-Mods put on a thrilling race. Lucas Isaacs began inside row one, with Danan Knott to his outside. Ethan Isaacs started inside row two next to veteran driver Randy Ainsworth with Dillion McCowan and Jeremiah Asher in the third row. Doug Keller and last week’s feature winner, Chase Galvin, were in the fourth row with many hungry drivers in the field as well.

Lucas Isaacs ran the lead early, with Knott, Asher, McCowan, Keller, Ainsworth and Ethan Isaacs among the front pursuers. Ethan Isaacs challenged Knott for several laps before moving into second behind Lucas Isaacs. Ethan Isaacs ran to the high side, but Lucas Isaacs kept his brother at bay. Lap after lap, the two put on an amazing display of driving as did Knott and Keller. Nic Hanes, who started outside row five, sliced and diced his way through the high-speed traffic jam, finding himself near the leaders as well.

Ethan Isaacs’ pressure finally gave way as he grabbed the lead. Lucas Isaacs fought back valiantly, but to no avail as Ethan Isaacs earned his first win of the year and a trip to McCarthy Auto Group Winner’s Circle. Lucas Isaacs finished second, Knott was third, Hanes' remarkable effort earned him a fourth-place finish and Keller was fifth.

The American Racer USRA Stock Cars always thrill the fans, and tonight would prove no different. With Jaylen Wettengel and Sam Scott on the front row, the field took the green flag. Jeff Dixon, who started inside the second row next to Blake Peeler, found himself in a big battle. Just behind Dixon, at the start of the feature inside row three, was a determined Tim Shields. Both Dixon and Shields have tasted the sweetness of victory lane this year at I-35 Speedway. Wettengel fought hard, as did Scott, but soon Dixon and Shields raced to the front. The pair raced lap after lap, neck-and-neck for the front spot.

The fans stood on their feet as Dixon and Shields raced each other with neither giving an inch. Dixon held an advantage late as Shields continued with heavy pressure. Dixon held on for his fourth win of the year with Shields finishing second, Peeler third, Wettengel fourth and Kacey Shields fifth.

The USRA Modifieds followed suit as well, never giving fans a chance to test out their seats. Last week’s feature winner, Darren Shaw, and last year’s track champion, Dennis Elliott, started from the front row. Robbie Reed and Ed Noll were the occupants of row two, with Paden Phillips and Houston Johnson in the third row. As the green flag flew, the epic battle ensued between Shaw and Elliott and the pair squared off lap after lap.

Reed was close to the front as well, putting on a lot of pressure for the front spot. Elliott, who earned his way to a championship last year running the low side near the apron on the track, has found the high side cushion to his liking this year. He managed to race by Shaw for the front position as Shaw and Reed were in his mirror racing next to each in a fantastic battle.

Elliott raced his way to his third run to McCarthy Auto Group Winner’s Circle. Shaw finished second with Reed third, Phillips fourth and Austin Johnson fifth. Sanders, who started outside row eight, diced his way through the field to finish sixth.

Next Saturday, July 13, the I-35 Speedway will host the previously rained-out Gary Davis Super 66 Stock Car Special featuring the American Racer USRA Stock Cars of the Arnold Motor Supply Iron Man Challenge with $3,000 to the winner, $2,000 for second place and $1,000 for third. The Summit USRA Weekly Racing Series featuring USRA Modifieds and Out-Pace USRA will also be on hand, as will the E-Mods, Pure Stocks, MIdwest Limited Late Models, Sports Compacts, POWRi Sprint Cars and Show-Me Vintage Racers.
