Former Out-Pace USRA B-Mod national champion Ryan Gillmore of Springfield took the lead from Danny Martin on the 10th lap and walked the dog Saturday night in grabbing his ninth feature win out of 11 starts at the Springfield Raceway.

Rolling off fifth on the grid, it was Martin pulling away quickly from the field as heavy rains from Friday and Saturday morning had the track crew working hard to keep the track as smooth as possible as it was lightning fast.

Martin pulled away while Cody Acklin, Michael Cawvey, Gillmore and a tight group were looking for an opening. Gillmore finally threaded the needle and moved into second and started his charge on the fast-moving Martin on lap 6.

Gillmore ran down the leader on lap 9 and made the pass to the front while third place was tight with as many as five cars in contention.

The first caution waved on lap 12 as Martin spun in turn 2 and bunched the pack together on Gillmore. A couple of quick yellows kept the pack on lap 12 as front-runner Cawvey of West Plains was involved, ending his night. The field gathered it back together as Gillmore was shot out of a cannon to leave the field racing for second.

Gillmore never looked back. Current track points leader Jackie Dalton charged from his 11th starting spot to capture the runner-up spot followed by Acklin, Levi Phillips and Mark Wolfe.

Summit Weekly Racing Series action featuring the Out-Pace USRA B-Mod continues Saturday, August 31, with a regular points show with racing at 7:30 p.m. Draw cutoff is 6:45 and hot laps begin at 7.
