Cole Traugott won the USRA Modified main event.

At the beginning of June in 2020, race season had just gotten underway at 81 Speedway.

This season, April and May were filled with the roar of race engines, the sharp scent of high-octane fuel and the glorious cheers from dedicated fans.

The race calendar has once again flipped to June, and the action only got more intense on Saturday night.

Alternative Pest Management USRA Modified driver Cole Traugott has been the model of up-front consistency the first five races this season.

With three podium finishes and a top-10 to his credit, Traugott looked to add a win to his 2021 stat sheet.

Josh Lanterman and Chris Kratzer led the 26-car field to green as Lanterman grabbed the early lead at the exit of turn two.

Third-starting Traugott immediately challenged Kratzer for the runner-up position, taking the spot away by the end of lap one.

Executing another pass two circuits later, Traugott found himself at the point just three laps in.

Determined to put early season struggles of his own to rest, Lanterman kept pace with the No. 9 machine while battles for position raged on through the rest of the field.

Just behind Lanterman, teammate Dan Powers charged from 11th to 3rd having wrestled that spot away from Kratzer just before a caution flew at the mid-way point.

When the race resumed, Traugott and Lanterman streaked away once again.

Powers had his hands full with Kratzer and Tad Davis, the pair shuffling the No. 4 machine back to fifth by the exit of turn two.

Powers finally stopped the slide in seventh after Kyler Kemp and Ryan McAninch had also worked their way by.

Torrid battles played out the rest of they way and at the checkers Traugott proved to be too much for Lanterman’s No. 4a machine.

Kratzer bested Davis for third, while Kemp won the battle for fifth over Powers and McAninch. McAninch, Davis and Kratzer all claimed heat race wins earlier in the evening.

Ethan Issacs made the trip to from Bonner Springs to compete in The Chunky Poodle USRA B-Mod division.

The driver of the No. 66 machine brought Jeremy Chambers’ perfect three-for-three record in local series action to a halt.

Issacs took the lead in the opening set of corners over his front row starting mate Kenton Allen, and never looked back leading every circuit around the top side of the Park City oval.

Kenton Allen kept Issacs within striking distance the entire way but had to settle for second when the checkers fell.

Chamber drove from 11th to 3rd while Gabriel Hodges and Jake Richards completed the top five.

Heat race wins went to Hodges, Allen and Issacs.

Next weekend will see the Alternative Pest Management USRA Modifieds, Two M Motorsports & Machine Rookie Modifieds, Primal Beef Jerky Mini Stocks, Heyglassman.com Stock Cars, and Midwest Wrap Co. Mod Lites all in action.

Adult General admission tickets for $12.00, Senior 65+ & Military $10.00, Children 10 & under are free. Gates open at 5 p.m. and racing starts at 7. You can find a complete schedule and race day information on our website at 81Speedway.com or follow us on our official Facebook page.
